Quinn anxiously peered around the edge of the airlock, making sure no one was there to spot him. He pushed himself through the opening and coasted rapidly to the safety of a large stack of crates tethered to the wall. From his hiding place, he had a perfect view of the monstrous dock.
Small ships and numerous spacecraft were docked in the immense berth, their hulls shining in the light of the distant Sun. Quinn recognized the stubby shapes of the Nomad mining ships unloading their precious cargo of asteroid water. A little further away, maintenance robots were helping dockhands load containers of food and supplies aboard scout ships and Merchant Guild cargos. He could see M-pods and exo-suits moving about, their thrusters glowing like hundreds of fireflies as they went about their business between the larger vessels.
Quinn was so enraptured by the sight that he did not notice the two men coming toward him. They observed the kid for a while, noting how fascinated he was by the dance-like operations occurring before him. The technician and the pilot looked at each other and smiled, remembering similar covert expeditions in their own youth. The pilot winked and nodded, then flew back to his idling M-pod. Quinn jumped in surprise when he felt the technician's glove on his space-suited shoulder. His radio crackled to life.
"Hey kid. Wanna catch a ride?"
