Episode 13 - Realization

One may not reach the dawn save by the path of the night. - Kahlil Gibran

There can be times in one's life when there is clarity of purpose and a resolution to the inevitable. A time when doing the right thing is more important than the pain that must be endured or the humiliation for a failure of character. Those times are moments of realization. Moments where the path has been cleared of the detritus of indecision and strength is drawn from the weaknesses of past inactions. They don't often come with a blinding flash or in moments of stress, but mostly after time and deliberate introspection. After 231 days of isolation the station commander has had a moment of realization and does what he knows is the right thing, the hard thing.

These moments of realization don't often come with explosions, death defying deeds or world saving heroics. They tend to occur in the quiet times when no one is watching or there to approve. But as anyone who has had these moments will tell you, there can be nothing more daunting, more terrifying or... more heroic than facing the man in the mirror and coming to grips with who he really is.

Action junkies will hate this episode but anyone who has faced a personal character flaw will appreciate its meaning. The action junkies will have plenty of fare in later episodes. For now: open your minds and look into your self. It will be the hardest thing you ever do.
