Forbidden Thoughts, with a foreword by Milo. Except:
It was John.
He’d killed them all.
He’d killed them by pushing hard for Jemison to fly left seat, and for Haldeman to ride right. That had been one of the first choices John made that killed them all. Haldeman was old school. Veteran fighter pilot. A warrior. A confirmed kill at Mach One in a jet. They’d put Haldeman in there to back Jemison up. Carry her. Everyone knew that. It was known. And the few that voiced opposition had been re-assigned by John. Re-assigned straight out of the program, in fact. We don’t need that kind of hate, he told everyone in the Arrival Program. Everyone had agreed. As they must. As they should.
The Arrival Program.
