1. Listen in a comfortable low-light environment.
2. Think about the distance between you and Voyager 1 or 2.
3. Think about being that far from our beloved Sol.
4. Think about video games.

Induction into the stellar library
Voyager 1 turns toward Earth one last time and takes a picture before traveling through the Ort cloud and out of our galaxy. At least that was the plan. Enter a precocious entity that had been following the curious object.
Just before a would-be fatal collision with a large frozen hunk of rock, Voyager 1 is captured by the entity. Studying the probe and unlocking its messages inspires it to investigate the source of the object. Falling in love with Earth and its creatures, it decides to capture the Galaxy for its collection.
He sends his Collector in the form of a man to encapsulate his dazzling new artifact. The Earth is transferred into the entity's great library of stellar curiosities.
While flitting about the planet taking in the many wonders the world possesses, the entity unwittingly enters the mind of a human as the human enters the wideye digital world through its headset unit. The entity's mind is trapped within the virtual world. Unable to grasp where exactly it is trapped, the entity quickly adapts to the user-generated landscapes and soon falls in with a crowd of cyber athlete-priests. The entity is then consumed with a FPS deathmatch addiction. Will the server ever crash and release our captor from the simulation?
