Space Captain Diana

“Bzzzzzzzzzz,” the alarm sounded. Diana opened her eyes, stretched, and floated out of her sleeping pod.

She was excited. It was her first day as a spaceship captain. After getting dressed, she planned to speak to each member of her new crew.

Diana’s first stop was the ship's control room. Inside, Maurice was steering the ship through the stars.

Suddenly, a warning bell sounded. Diana could see an asteroid zooming out of the blackness toward their ship. Maurice tapped a button. A laser beam fired at the space rock. BOOM! It exploded into pieces.

“Good morning, Captain!” Maurice said cheerfully. “There are lots of asteroids around this planet. We need to watch them carefully. Can you take my place this afternoon while I call my family?”

“No problem,” said Diana. “I’ll be back later.”
