"Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the GSV
Greater Enterprise Than Discretion. My voluntary five year mission
is to seek out strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new
civilizations in need of help, to boldy meddle (for good reasons)
in what no sophont has meddled in before."
