Writer’s note 10-25-88

This must be one of the most interesting dreams that I’ve had.  I woke up right after that last line. I was able to write down what I remembered before I became too awake to forget it. I still try to remember the history of the dream, but all I can get is that the crew is split up by a government turned fascist.
