“Sir, we’ve just received this missive from Mission Control.”
Major Joram took the message. “Let me see. Hmmm. Mutinous Martians marauding disputed borders between Mars’ colonies Gamma and Omega. Stop. Imperative mutineers stopped. Stop. Must prevent more murders and mayhem. Stop. Mobilise military units immediately.”
“What does it mean, sir?”
“We’ve got to march to the Martian Marches this March.”
