    Excerpt from one of my wip's


    The ship a tiny dot in the distance was nearly on us, as it grew larger still I watched fascinated switching between the window and scanner on which some words appeared. “Ident acquired. Imperial courier…registration number…unable to acquire.”‘Hmm’ muttered Ash, no ident that’s interesting.’ ‘What do you mean?’ I asked‘It means.’ She replied ‘that they have something to hide, and there's no way that’s a pirate ship, way too large and slow for that. I’d say that someone knows who we are and wants to stop us by blasting us into tiny pieces.’

    ‘Who are they?’ I asked.

    Station Challenge: Fist time smuggler

    Hondaport space station is spinning slowly in front of me and there is a nice view of a planet Gonzez beneath. I have to make this trip extra profitable since I do not have enough credits to pay for the fuel. I hope not to get busted for carrying narcotics hear. Or get busted selling them.

    Just need to slowly approach the station and dock. What a relief. I have landed successfully.

    Now to find a black market seller.

    What? There is no narcotics needed on the black market?

    I am such a noob. Narcotics are legal in Olcanze (1,-3).

    Do you think we could change the thread title to "Yabba Drabble Doooo"?

    Species Profiling

    Mike was on immigration duty at Sori station. A Thargoid walked past. "Hi Mike."

    "Hey Sam."

    The Thargoid continued on her journey. Mike's boss was not impressed. "You're not supposed to just let them through, you idiot!"

    Mike protested, "But that's Sam! I can't make someone I know sit through the immigration procedure!"

    "You know how many Thargoids sneak through here? Me neither, because we can't count 'em."

    The boss radioed security. They were already waiting for Sam up ahead. "Well, look what we have here... Little Miss Thargoid."

    Sam rolled her eyes. "I think you'll find it's DOCTOR Thargoid."

    you mean here, as in a place, not hear, as in to listen.

    Hope you all pull up my grammar and spelling mistakes. NOTE only do this for storyline text, not for banter and chatter, you'll be here for years.

    Sorry abou that, It's because I've got my forum theme set to the Elite version which I think is the default for the Elite section unless you change it.

    I tend to forget that there is options on the theme you can choose.

    What colour would you like it in? Let me know and I'll repost it for you.

    I don't need it re-posting thanks. I just highlight the text and read it that way

    Station Challenge: The Corriolis Effect

    So the title doesn't affect the word count? The title of the following drabble is "What Happens When You Stick a 3rd Class Maintenance Engineer in a Massive Spinning Metal Can, and Give Him a Sadistic Supervisor":-

    The valve-o-mat in sector 9-15 needed replaced. Hugh didn't want the assignment but was too proud to say. He's a spaceman dammit! The maintenance ladder went all the way up to the centre of the station. As he climbed he could feel his steps getting lighter.

    His inner ear eventually gave up guessing which way up he was. His mind took over. He was crawling along a metal floor. He was clinging onto a ladder bolted to a vertical wall. He was grasping a ladder bolted to a ceiling. And he also clenched a vertical ladder upside-down.

    He threw up.

    Safely docked (at last). But that was a close one. Too close.
    Two more runs like that and you'll get the AAAAECM. Definitely.
    Repairs are gonna take 16 hours, so next some rest and BodyDoc. Laying down on the hypersleep couch, you wish you could change the AutoDream setting, but it's been stuck on the same bluddy program since the day you bought the ship.

    The lid descends, the world around you fades and becomes distant. Your senses are subverted by the AutoDream construct....

    The Unknown

    A hundred silver stars splash up from the dashboard and hover before me, waiting patiently. The sudden glare of the projector in my eyes doesn’t bother me anymore.

    The ship tells me where I am. We all know this place, we’ve all been here.

    And that’s just boring.

    I turn and pick out another glowing orb. They say it’s far too dangerous to go there. I’d be mad. That’s perfect.

    Selecting it, I lean forwards, easing the lever towards the void. Space shivers and splits at my bow, caving inwards and pulling me with it, into the unknown, into danger.

    Dark Stars

    Dark stars don't show on your 3D map. Even now we do not know how many systems there are in the sky.

    It's what makes hyperspace jumps exciting - you never know if you are going to get to your destination. Something about unexpected gravity anomalies not being accounted for in the hyperspace calculations.

    Not something I need to understand, luckily, but that's why most people stick to established trade routes - you get where you’re aiming for.

    So, select your position, select your destination, press the button and hope. And if you end up somewhere unexpected, note the coordinates!

    Black Widow

    Brian thought his luck had changed. The pretty blonde had been flirting with him for the past hour and now she wanted to go back to his ship.

    They stumbled from the bar to the docking bay and onto his ship. A swift jab with a syringe and Brian was paralysed.

    Stella looked at Brian. She would keep him alive until she cracked the biometric locks to transfer ownership of the Cobra over to her. His bank account would be drained too, but then he would be of no further use. She knew a good place to dump a body...
