Splashdown

The Icarus (from Planet Of The Apes) crash lands in the water

Splashdown beneath the afternoon sun. Starship like a dagger rising from the water's surface, an ivory shard pointing back upward to the sky. Foam dissolves to mist around the craft, spiraling from the surface in long, graceful arcs. The hatch blasts open and a figure emerges. Home at last. Echoes of music float on a calm sea breeze.
