In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"I'm alive ...
I opened my eyes in the painful silvery pre-dawn of this forsaken world where I had landed and checked out my surroundings. The rough, arid, dark brown terrain appeared to be something from a sci-fi B-movie. It went on forever, stopping only at the horizon with nothing except a few bumps, crinkles, folds, and valleys. I looked at the mighty ship which had once carried my crew and myself through thousands of galaxies and had visited countless planets throughout the vast solar system."
