You don’t have to be out of your small round white escape pod for very long before it becomes clear that the planet can be a dangerous place.
Predators both enormous and infinitesimal are roaming about night and day, and no matter where you go and who you meet, everyone looks hungry.
You would just crawl back in and call it a day, if only they made escape pods in “extra large.”
But with a lifespan of 50+ years and you growing bigger every day, Option A is clearly out.
Which leaves you with Option B.
