Authors Notes: This is a totally re-written and expanded version of the original story, "FTL". It has been re-titled as "The Beginning", for the simple reason that it is the original story that started the FTL series. Please enjoy this expanded and refined work. Constructive criticism is always appreciated. Whinges, complaints, and idiocies will be filed in the circular file, where they belong.
My thanks, in advance,
