Prompt for August 28, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

The SS Ferrogut was designed to ferry passengers and colonists from one outpost to another. The crew or twelve was revived when the ship left hyperspace, approximately forty-eight hours prior to planetfall, so that they could prepare the ship for arrival as well as preparing the med bays for the mass awakening of the other residents of the ship. After leaving a port the passengers were put to sleep and then the crew followed prior to the ship entering hyperspace. Even for shorter jumps of ten days everyone was placed into stasis as it was a well-known fact that exposure to hyperspace caused the normal human brain to deteriorate and inevitably lead to death. Those were the thoughts that went through the mind of Marcus Torino as his stasis pod malfunctioned and he woke five days into a thirty-day trip.
