Starbase121 - an art work by T Newfields

Gus: So this ends with a starbase?
Bill: Why not? It seems like a cool way to end.
Nadya: Do you think the human race will make it that far?
Gus: Ordinary humans might not, but perhaps transhumans will.
Liao: (sighing) At least we have made it to the end of this book.
