The inside looked pretty well off for a ship that had been on fire for several minutes and survived a reentry into the atmosphere.
It didn't look like many things were out of order. Several charred screens coated in a black gooey substance lined the walls of the ship. The paint was cracked in several places but surprisingly still recognizable as a forest green. The other flight equipment was mostly intact and unmoved.
"This is like in really good condition," commented Harry.
"And how do you come to that conclusion?" asked Aria, curious to know if he'd spotted something she didn't.
"Most of the controls are where they should be," explained Daisy," and for something that burnt hot enough to completely melt the heat shield outside the stuff inside is reasonably well off. The paint clearly didn't survive but this must have some ridiculously good insulation to be able to not be a complete gooey sticky mass of nothingness."
"Uh well, I guess I don't have anything to add to that," said Harry, giving Daisy a mock bow," thank you Professor Danvers."
Daisy nodded in acknowledgment and gave her best impression of a superior smug look although her inability to stop herself from smiling completely ruined the look.
"Hmm...okay let's just get to work then. As far as I know, that just means this will be easier for us to dismantle and dispose of," said Aria, rolling her eyes at their antics.
"True," agreed Harry," pity that the engine is completely destroyed. Otherwise we could have actually flown this."
"Well whatever brought this thing down it was a hit to the engine or the fuel tank if all those flames are any indication,” said Aria,"so you can forget about that."
"I don't think I can argue with said," said Harry, turning around," I'm taking the front of the ship. You two take the other sides. I guess we start with whatever loose items are on the floor and then work our way up?"
"Sounds like the most reasonable thing to do," said Aria, nodding," we can hopefully finish that before the day is out, then all we have are these big pieces and the main frame of the ship itself."
"Yaa...we should be done in a week or two hopefully."
"Hopefully," said Daisy, before the three of them picked a spot a spot to start.
"Uhh...guys, I think solved the mystery of where this came from," called out Harry,"not that it explains much but...well just come over here."
"Wait how?" asked Aria, walking over, Daisy not far behind.
"It's written right here, MWSC Rainbow Emergency Escape Pod A49," said Harry pointing out white lettering set next to one of the cracked control panels.
"English?" asked Daisy,"how can it be in English.?"
"It's very possible that humans aren't the only ones who use that language," said Aria," there are plenty of stories that said we used to have intergalactic trade back in the day."
"I pretty sure those stories are very true. Our trade was in its infancy, but I remember reading about a couple of ships we used to transport goods on," began Daisy,"I don't believe Earth had its own ships, but we did own a part of some ships belonging to the Milky Way as a whole. And the designation they used was oddly similar. MWTC. Milky Way Trade Cruiser. This is MWSC. I'd bet that the MW comes from Milky Way."
"Huh," said Aria, filing that information away to relay to her mother later. That would confirm the suspicions that her mother had mentioned that one morning. "Well, that's all very interesting, but let's get back to work now."
"Yes, Captain!" echoed the duo.
