Well, more like 950 or so.

But who's counting?

Ingenuity


In a nutshell - and aint it grand!
And yes, it is why humans are still around, I've no doubt about that.

Just read Seeker's post. It seems that fate, or karma if you prefer, has reared its ugly head. Asher has his zone killer levelled at an NI assasination squad. Which of his new-found human natures will take over - fear, hate and revenge? or duty, honor, and rule-of-law? or are they both the same thing in this case?

Tune in next time.... (personally, I'm rooting for revenge. I'd like 'em cubed and cooked, so the Rigellians don't have to work so hard for a meal, but that's just neno's general take on life
)

Side note about the shooting the navigator thing: kids, don't try that at home. It's generally considered bad form to kill the driver when you're out in the boonies, 'cause then ya might have to walk home.

Edit: Go ahead Asher with defending the Yydryl against NI! Maybe you can score us some brownie points to cover the fact that humans invaded them in the first place!

Don't worry I cleared that up in the last pdf document edit. See below...

Unnecessary, I didn't write it very clearly but I meant to say that all of his mangled body disappeared in a flash of light. (Sorry no munching for what I have planned.) I've deleted the old pdf I had and added the new one which states this more clearly.




If that works, I think we've got it hammered out then!

I'll remove the dead body. Agree with you on the roping as well regarding having your hands free - hadn't thought of that! Otherwise everything looks fine and I think you and I should post parts 3 and 4 so we have these slots. If you agree, send masqua a u2u with a link to your pdf. As there are pics and such, with mine he'll only need to make a deletion.

(Emphasis added)

Since the dead body thing is fixed, I think we're ready to edit these posts. I've sent Masqua a U2U with our edits.



I apologize to everyone for all the confusion I caused and time I took up.

Not a problem here, Studious. You thrashed it out and made it work, and that's what this is all about. Now watch and see how this plot branch grows legs and starts walking on it's own!


See my post above re: innovation and ingenuity. You've established an important part of what being human IS.

Even if you caused an intragalactic incident to do it...

Your post on ingenuity really touched me.


I agree it is the main human trait, and probably the reason humans have survived and are marching toward the future.

Studious and Whisper and the rest.

If you don't like my ending in my last post - me running up and finding the S.O Whisper and Studious shaking hands and laughing let me know.

Oh, and Whisper, don't be too mad I got away from poor Chumley.

I about died when I read the name you gave him - how perfect was that! (There's that synchronicity again)!

So let me know about the ending.

If you think it will I’ll leave it and hope everyone now heads over the bar.

I'm still dying to know what the problem is with Nathan.

Oh and Studious, no apologies necessary - it was all worth every minute of it!

I'll be making those two edits right away.

Sorry for my absense the past few days, but some issues were piling up in the corners and under the furniture and I was left hunting and gathering for a where. Troubles are like Tribbles... if you can't keep a handle on them, they propagate like rabbits.

Thank you Masqua!
I have just a few minor edits to my last post which I will U2U with.

Studious - If I have Masqua delete the small paragraph you highlighted in the pdf and the writers note at the top of my last post I should be able to put this to bed right?

Silo - ::tickles:: Whisper laughing, especially with a human is not in character
I think she's only ever laughed once and she was drunk and with Scruvy in the The Swamp. Not that she's cranky - she lacks an emotional chip that many Rigellians do. You may want to change the line to something like you see me looking curiously at the humans hand, not knowing what to do with it - lol

And then...as much as we'd all love to about now - it would be unrealistic to go to the bar. The ship will repair itself but, I'm sure our captain gave me orders to detain this group as their own captain requested. So I will be escorting Studious to the brig for a brief time. Perhaps you could bring him some food and drink after I do


Antar - would you want the slightly injured humans in the RB or recover in the brig? Their injuries are very minor and only require time. We have two with a 30 minute paralysis and one shot in the leg with a nerve pistol. Okay, I 'spose he may need to come to the RB if for anything then some hospitality and good will on our part to anesthetize his pain until the shot wears off. I will also send her a U2U per her request about this question.

All in all, take the drama out and the only thing that happened is we now Studious aboard the ship earlier then expected. The uninvited guest.


Sorry for the FUBAR guys and for taking up 2 pages of working thread. I can't say it enough how much I appreciate the cooporation. Somtimes I feel like I'm in some freaky sociology experiment.

LOL

I know what you mean about the freaky sociology experiment thing.

I sometimes will walk around base and wonder if people are watching me from cars going, "So that's Captain Luder..... hmmm.. yes...... it's almost time...."

Kinda like Galaxy Quest. I'm going to wake up with a bunch of people I don't know chillin in my room and they're going to say, "We need you to come command our starship....."

"I just write."

lol

No harm in trying, lol.

Ok I'll edit the post that you're just shaking hands and leave it at that.



EDIT: I made the Edit but I'm still not happy with it.
I'll revamp in a few after I clear out a thrashing of U2U's.

I'm going to have some time to write my next post here in a few hours but I have a couple questions first.

So, the NI team that just blew down the door to get to Asher is how many people? Which ones came to get him? Anything I should know about this team?

I would download the PDF and check it out myself but my net won't let me. My connection sucks like a tornado at the moment...


And what exactly are they here for? To extract Asher right? What were they planning on doing after they got him back to the dropship?

Thanks in advance.

I can't download it either.

I have no idea why, but, I guess we'll see it *in the flesh* soon enough - if it isn't edited in already (Thank you Masqua.)

Seeker so sorry for all this misunderstandings. I think me and Studious posts are close to being as stand. In that case, that team is no longer in route to the RB!

I think I just heard you gasp!

You are about to have some crewmate company though. I haven't posted it yet but Studious and the two paralyzied members (Evans and Nathan) are going to the brig. Ackerman has been shot in the leg with an excruciating nerve pistol and will be joining you to hopefully receive some comfort and relief!

I need to read back through Studious post to see what became of Monroe. Ford disappeared in a ball of light. You should see my scratchy notebook!

Land of the Lost repeats all day on Sci-Fi. This sure doesn't look like how I remembered it at age seven. There I go dating myself again! :hides:

I feel for ya Masqua. Been there, done that. Heck who am I kidding? sometimes I'm pretty sure I LIVE there, not just visiting, in the tribble hotel. I'm gonna hang a sign up over my front door "Welcome to Space Station K-7. Enter at your own risk"

Just keep swatting them away. They HAVE to give up some time!

Luder... They're not just talking among themselves in those cars, they're pointing at you and taking pictures, too!


Galaxy Quest... Yeah, I'm pretty sure once they read this story, they'll be coming for you! Send us a post card form 'out there'...

Wait... So there wasn't a team that split off and blew the door open?

If so, we may have to delete my post, but that's no biggie. Just let me know what everyone wants to do and I can fix it next time I'm on.

One last lil comment from me this night. I'm not Whisper the character and I'm really hesitant about my next post - putting Studious in the brig as I don't want to ever put any character in a box, literally or figurativly. But I'm confident Luder will be over to collect him soon or he'll find a creative way out!

I more then anything want to see the Penny and Yydryl crew have this face to face meeting as I'm sure all of you do too! Oh wouldn't that be a nice dream if _luder and company showed up before Studious got locked up? Sweet dreams for me tonight indeed!

I'd say that's a safe bet. He should have named the character Houdini, as a middle name at least!

Not only that, I noticed how nothing phases the great Studious.

Doing unexpected battle on an alien ship and a thing with tentacles kills your mates and catches you in a whip.... shows you sharp teeth.... and he acts like this is all business as usual. Even offers his hand.

lol
