— Bill Lovell on the group of stranded militaries in the outskirts of Reboot
Even if he was already fired by the US Mail, he promised to keep on doing his rounds.
Six months later, the residents of Reboot needed to learn fast to live without support from the Datum and to be able to produce everything they needed. Bill, who was then going around selling miniaturized sets of encyclopaedias and copies of Scientific American, helped a lot in that matter.
Around May 2040, Bill was just fishing and was heading back to Reboot when he ran into a group of stranded militaries in the middle of the forest. Their equipment being mistakenly dropped on Earth West 101,752 instead of Earth West 101,754, they had no way to find their way to Reboot by themselves.
