Color by George Peterson.

Freefall in color by many folks.


Ship: Turnover complete. Thrust in sixty seconds. All hands make yourself secure. Thrust in sixty seconds.
Sam: Better get myself back into the chair.
Rover17: Is thrust a problem?
Sam: If you're floating free, the ship starts going faster and your speed stays the same. That continues until the presence of a wall or other inconvenient object makes itself known.
Sam: Like a fall in reverse, it's not the thrust that hurts you, it's the sudden acceleration at the end.
