Chief Engineer’s Mate Maria Sanchez Ochoa is trapped on the ISS Montserrat, a severely damaged cargo ship drifting further away from the solar system and her only chance at getting help is through a 140 character text-based system status messaging system.
Calling Home originally appeared as a Twitter/Plurk science-fiction story. It used multiple Twitter and Plurk accounts and each character spoke to each other only in dialogue. The original run happened on Twitter and can still be found on there.

The graphic novel version of Calling Home ran on a now-defunct ComicPress site. Currently, there is not a version of it available online, but I will be releasing a PDF version soon.
For the time being, here are some panels from the original run of the story.
