Artist confessions: in my original plan I was going to do this whole section of the chapter from page 347 onwards with all the characters fully kitted out in their emergency suits, helmets and all. But then I chickened out and decided they could just have their helmets at the ready (which in the case of the basic emergency suits, like the one Fusella is wearing, has a sort of soft-sided helmet attached, looking like a hoodie). Pages and pages of people in helmets with very little to distinguish between them would get dull pretty fast. The price of a visual medium, I guess!
