    This regime you're doing is really paying dividends. You're already one word light.

    You may wish to choose another that doesn't get blocked by the filter

    Incommunicado

    The Scarab bounced wildly on its suspension as it crested the crater’s rim. Loose breccia and grit kicked up by the wheels formed dull red clouds around the rear lights as the SRV rolled down, towards the centre.

    Over the engine’s low whine and the scrape of the wheels the pilot listened to the scanner’s constant chirp, keeping the vehicle pointed towards maximum response, making course corrections for boulders along the way.

    Finally they arrived. The buggy dwarfed by the Corbra, headlamps illuminating a fraction of the ship’s massive frame. The pilot raised an eyebrow,

    “So that’s where you’ve been!”

    TITLE: A Scan Too Far by Commander NipplesMcPinchy

    Simple. A straight forward race. Hit all the systems in order, scan the planetary body and onto the next. The difference this year was the sheer size of the challenge, 12000 systems over 3 months.

    He didn't care, he'd done it, and he was the first in the qualification scanner queue. Nothing but riches and an easy life on his beloved Leesti awaited.

    <Welcome competitor, please present your log>

    <Please wait Commander Dluck... verifying...>

    The tension was palpable as more exhausted pilots began to arrive behind him.

    <AWOL, please complete the challenge>

    'What?'

    <Arrived With Out Leesti>

    'Noooo!' Ard screamed.

    Could somebody else put up tho poll? My computer died last night and I don't think my wee handheld tablet can do it. A seven inch one is just not up to the task

    I'll sort it Frank.

    This week's poll has been created >> It's a wee bit late, but at least it's not gone A.W.O.L.

    Thanks.

    I just just got my desktop running again now and it seems okay... apart from the puff of smoke from my videocard and the acrid smell of burning plastic, so maybe it was better for you to put up the poll instead of me getting halfway with it before I set my room on fire.

    Good idea. I've left it as a 3 day vote so it will end by 19:00 on Monday this week. Tbh, I contemplated leaving us without a poll... I thought that would be nicely on topic
