SF drabble #1

The ship dropped into normal space with the mildest of shudders, and when the straps released and the light blinked, Jon made his way  to the control cabin.

“My Lord.”

The Yndagi pilot waved at the viewscreen, a solid wall of red giant star. In the center, nearly, was a small barren orb.


“My Lord?”

“Your home planet.”

Jon hesitated. “I was born on Canhah, My Lord.”

“No, your race. Your race’s home planet: where your kind evolved. It’s about to be swallowed up by its primary. We were close by, I thought it might be amusing to watch.”
