And just like that it was no more......10,778 days. Even closed for the past 2,835 of those days it stood as a monument of imagination and imagineering, an inspiration for the many simulators that followed.
The 5th of May will be one of those days to remember. Tomorrow it will be the Odyssey and Phoenix. The last ship to go will be the Magellan.
Think of all the stories you already tell when you get together with former shipmates. Good times, yes? And that's the way it should be.
And far into the future, there may be a story told of a crazy project that boldly went where no man had gone before.
Once upon time there was this ship called Voyager.........
Toast the passing of a friend and look to the future for what is to come.
