Marcus was a man in his mid-thirties with a slim athletic build that allowed him to fit anywhere there was electrical wiring that would be needed to be fixed on Station 109XBT. His short cropped sandy blonde hair was under a baseball cap. A sport he had only read about, watched when vids could be found, and imagined in his head. For you see Marcus had not been Earth born, nor had he been born in the Gaia Solar System. He in fact had been born on colony ship number thirteen. He had grown up on a terraformed moon not far from the station but he ha the call of space in his blood not that of a farmer. Sadly he his family had never been rich enough to send him to a proper academy for training in space so Marcus had put himself through a trade program for electrical engineering of space travel vehicles. After many ships and years of work he had landed the job here on Station 109XBT over the moon he had grown up on. In other words he could live on the moon but still catch a shuttle to the station every morning.
Today he was repairing some wires that had melted when a water tank had sent water hot enough through the pipes that several people were in the hospital ward with third degree burns and it had melted the wires that had been run along the pipe. Marcus was now replacing the wire and padding them in foam so it won’t happen again.
“Dex can you place solder these two together please.” Marcus asked holding the wires toward what looked like a dented yellow tin box. This box was in fact a robot that was called Human Fine Motor Skills Dexterity Unit or in this case Dex as Marcus called his. The name was even block painted on the side of the unit. It went everywhere but out on the town with Marcus since it was what saved him from having to take pieces of work out of the tubes and to a work station several levels lower than what he was working. The little unit was made to care tools that Marcus might need. It could also measure and cut wire. Hold wire in place or cold solder it. Dex had a few extras like being able to place music as well and speak to Marcus. Sadly Dex only spoke in binary.
