Story line came to life sometime on a Saturday in May of 2015. It's hard to tell which Saturday exactly. Saturday posts became a series of photo captions of Renee's critters. Bunnies, cat, ratties and even a hamster.
From photo to photo the little ones became more and more adventurous. They started plotting before we realized it.
With time, their appetite for adventure grew and the rest is history.
A young, energetic and adventurous bun. Loves airplanes, astronomy and space travel. Likes to crack a joke when you least expect her. Occasionally enjoys watching and playing football.
Often acting as a "Bunneh In Command", Suzy keeps a birds eye view on her friends anticipating trouble before they get into it. Suzy always stays cool and collected under pressure, like a good bunstronaut would.
Kitty friend of the bunnehs and ratties. Old soul that has seen and done more than cares to remember now. Bruno also keeps an eye on the bunnehs keeping them out of harm's way

Ratty friend of all the critters. Engineer by heart, loves to tinker with hardware and software. If it can be hacked, he will.
Ratty friend and adventure control specialist. Often acting as copcom ("capsule communicator"). Monitors the expedition members' vital signs, provides relevant info about the movements and activities of hoomins. Monitors all misssion critical systems.
