    Message in a Klein Bottle

    The Fuelrat commander entered and nodded to the comms officer, "Let's hear the message."

    He tweeked his equipment until a faded voice crackled over the static, "...hyperdicted by Thargoids... ...trapped in Witchspace... fuel..."

    The comms officer sighed. "The message just repeats. We tried to contact him, tell him there's no way we can get fuel to him. Either he can't hear us, or he doesn't want to hear us. What can we do?"

    The Fuelrat avoided eye contact with the comms officer. "If you were in the same position as that stranded pilot, you'd grasp at straws as well."

    This new Sclubbery 5 and 2 song has a good beat

    Pirate Angrybumfiddlermans favourite song played on't radio...

    When the void, makes you psychotic,
    You may shoot at us, We'll rip off your wee *redacted*
    With your reams, of cargoes bountiful,
    You may fly away, but we will find you

    Don't like that ship your flying,
    We like to see you dying,
    Don't you ever forget that
    We've caught you you smelly ars, hole

    Breach through their rears,
    Explore their orrifices,
    Breach til theres tears,
    Don't stop til they are bleeding,
    Breach then drink beers,
    Killing is thirsty work and thems no lies,
    Breach til brown tears run down their thighs.

    The Story of the Story (aka Everything Trends Upward When You're At The Bottom)

    Once again, our fearless writer sat down to face this week's Drabble challenge.

    He stared at his screen, willing words to come out and tell a succinct - yet memorable - story, one that would help him win the poll and raise his status amongst his peers. How could he, in the most parsimonious fashion, convey what simple thoughts ran through his head? How could he hope to win this week if he couldn't even bring his words to the page in a meaningful way? HOW COULD HE WORD GOOD?

    The answer, like success, like the challenge title, was out of reach.

    Silent auction.

    The gnome knows kow,nodding knowingly at the gnu who knew kow too.The atmosphere was tense.There was nothing quite like the blind auction about to take place,and extraordinary measures had been taken to ensure that only the richest and most powerful could attend.Having been marrooned within the permit locked zone for some considerable time,the item they strove to acquire rocketed in price as they spat and shouted at each other.'Where's your bid,eh?' screamed Anna Condor triumphantly as she held aloft her prize,single sheet of Abbrakadrabble bog-roll fluttering in the breeze,thighs squelching.

    Secret Vandal

    Commander Kilroy's gastank was filled with a special concoction to extend his jumprange, he'd fitted a Guardian range-extender, and found a remote part of the galaxy where a neutron star gave access to a very distant cluster of stars that also contained another neutron supercharger for safe return.

    He walked out his Asp onto the lonely moon. The sky was desolate of stars. Spraycans don't work here, and also their paints would soon bleach.

    He drew a broken line in the moondust, filled the breaks with hands and an overhanging nose "KILROY WOZ ERE".

    Nobody else would ever see this.

    Out of the way

    Most things were out of reach for Tommy, His shoelaces and willy for two.
    But the latest thing that was out of reach were the controls to his ship
    He'd previously managed to manuver the controls with his moobs
    but now the fat rolls had started firing his shaft off at random intervals
    He needed controls he could use and fly his anaconda better than ever
    Winching him into the ship the cranes groaned in zero-g
    He ran into the cockpit like cold custard being poured on to an apple pie
    Tommy sharted
    The ship splatted into the toast rack

    Marooned: Five out of five solution provided by the saviour himself.

    Just aim for the bowl and squeeze so tight
    Strengthen my grip and it will be all right
    It's gonna be okay, straining away
    Relief is on its way!

    But wheres the bog roll? (Coloured peach)
    It's the other side of the room, out of reach
    You've got to be kidding, I'm not willing
    To paint my anacondas bathroom this shade of brown.

    My cheeks are splattered with a moof like mess
    There's only one solution to this, I confess : Yeah!
    I've got to twerk like jesus

    7. Drabbles must be set in the Elite Dangerous universe (as loosely as you care to make it).
    8. It should try to meet the theme in some arguable way.
    9. If there is more than one theme you must match at least one, but can gain extra votes if you meet more.
    10. It's all for a bit of fun, so enjoy yourself... Enjoyment is mandatory!
    11. If you win, you get to submit next week's Drabble topic, so make sure you post it by 3pm GMT Monday. Or else chaos will ensue and who knows what will happen...

    Hyperdiction and Murder Flowers (aka I Was There)

    The Gnosis shook furiously, klaxons suddenly sounding all around. "This isn't right", she thought, as her ship slid around the docking bay. Without warning, the shaking stopped. She punched her comms. "Control, where are we?". No answer. Other ships started disembarking; she queued her own to take off. Her comm system roared with static, punctuated by screams and shouting. "Control, what the hell is going on out there?" Her ship moved to the head of the line; the bay doors opened and she saw the carnage unfold. "I'm sorry, Commander," the normally-calm voice was shaking, "I'm afraid I don't know."

    Hey guys, not a great lot of entries for this week, which actually might play into my hands.

    I am not around Friday night due to Hunting Dinosaurs at the SECC in Glasgow, so this could be a great excuse to roll it over!!

    Cleonymus eyed the engineer suspiciously.
    "OK, it makes it go faster, but how much faster"
    The engineer shrugged.
    "Will it use my fuel up faster?"
    Another shrug.
    "OK what about capacity. Will it let me use more fuel per jump so I can go further?"
    The engineer gave an embarrassed smile accompanied by another enigmatic shrug.
    "You want a lot of stuff to do this, will it be worth it?"
    Another shrug and a wave at the engineers table.
    Cleonymus walked over to the table. On it were a set of FSD blueprints and 3 dice.
    He rolled the dice.

    My Dear, Find What You Love

    Katherine's boyfriend looked on as she packed. "Why do you work as a war reporter? That's a dangerous job."

    She kept her attention on the task in hand. Should she take this skirt? "I've always had a curious nature. I want to know things. This interview with the warlord ElGuerro is the opportunity of a lifetime."

    "Are you sure you can fly safely through the blockade?"

    "I don't know."

    "How safe will you be in ElGuerro's camp?"

    "I don't know."

    "You could be killed."

    Katherine slung some nylons into the suitcase before she paused to look at him. "I know."

    Title: “Monologue”
    By Fletch – Aged 7 and (nearly 8)
    I told yah – I don’t know... And I gave up caring ages ago! Why d’ya keep asking?
    Some people said they knew, but never told.
    It started as a joke, but just ain’t funny any more.
    It stopped being interesting years ago. Bit like space legs, but what do I know, eh?
    It coulda been a real person, or many people, like a secret society, but no-one cares these days.
    Mug-Mug might still be alive, but he (or she, or “it”) is dead to me.
    Then someone at the back of the bar shouts “MUG!” and I still giggle.

    ‘Where did these Flux-stains come from?’ yelled Davie from the lower bridge
    The Asp Explorer ‘Sanctimonious’ pitched over as a thargoid scout flew past, battered their shields.
    ‘I don’t know!’ shouted back Mac as he fought the ship’s controls.
    Alert lights and warning sirens blared from all around the ship.
    ‘How can they’re weapons get through the shields?’ Shrieked Mooka from the Engineering station.
    ‘I don’t know!’ repeated Mac. ‘But I’ll tell you what I do know!!’
    He brought the scout into range of the new AX cannons. He fired. The Scout Blew up.
    ‘They don’t like it up ‘em.’

    (Not my Best effort but Kow did put out a call for more Drabbles)
