I'll Keep Coming

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

I'll Keep Coming

Postby Theblackdog » Tue Aug 14, 2018 3:49 pm

Shortly after the events of The Red Earth...
Image
Commander Jess Stryker: "Sam Porter Bridges... 'The Man Who Delivers'?"
Sam: "That's me."
Image
Stryker: "Want to work with me? It'll be tough to find another way off planet. We'll be better off sticking together."
Sam: "I can't help you with that. I make deliveries. That's all."
Stryker: "Ok, then... watch yourself. Those things never stay gone for long."

Image
Stryker: "See you around... Sam Porter Bridges."

Image
SKREEEEEEEEEEE
Sam: "Ohshit-"

Image
*PEW*

Image
FWOOOOOSH
Sam: "Fuck!"

Image
Sam: "Oof..."

Image
Bob the Unbuilder: "Need a lift back to HQ?"
Sam: "Sure."

Image
In the skies over Refuge...
Sam: "So this is your new special ops shuttle?"
Bob: "Yup. It's called the Personnel Excursion Quick Unobtrusive Orbital Dropship, if you care."
Sam: "I'm not sure you have any business calling something that can one-shot an Angel a 'dropship'."

Image
Sam: "Also, it's cramped as fuck in here."
Bob: "That's the price you pay for speed. If we'd been any slower, you'd be Tang by now."
Bob: "Anyway, do you have the sample?"

Image
Sam: "Right here."
Bob: "Awesome."

Image
Bob: "I've got something for you as well. Call it a bonus for all your good work."
Sam: "Is that a-"
Bob: "Yup, it's a Positron Rifle. I guess once the Research Division dissected enough Type-5 Angels, they figured out how to scale it down to minifig-portable size. This will go through an A.T. field like it isn't there. Expensive as shit, but I'd rather not lose our porters to an Angel attack."
Sam: "Thanks for that."
Pilot: "Mr. President, message for you from Vanguard Three, high priority."

Image
Bob: "What is it?"
Pilot: "Britannian ships have been detected entering our outlying systems, including Admiral Blackdog's personal vessel. Over twenty so far, and more warp signatures incoming when the message was sent. It looks like a full-scale battle fleet this time."

Image
Bob: "Dammit, it's starting already."
Sam: "What's starting?"
Bob: "For the past year, the natural hazards of the Zone have made the other factions too scared to explore it, but that was never going to last. All those agencies they set up to study weird shit... RARcom, the TRF, the ARA, the Royal Society... they're all going to come pouring in here, looking for new scientific discoveries and new weapons. And when they find out that we weren't completely wiped out, they'll bring in their battle fleets. It's going to be a bloodbath."
Pilot: "This is P.E.Q.U.O.D., arriving shortly at LZ."
Sam: "I thought you liked violence."
Bob: "Hell yes. I love violence. But we need time to rebuild before another major war"

Image
Bob: "Once we're ready, though... none of them will be able to stand in our way."

I can't get over how sexy your ships are.

Thanks. This one was a huge pain to make, which is why I didn't post this soap sooner.

Also, it can't fit minifigs in any kind of photographable pose without taking off the entire roof, and there's no way it can fit its already modest planned capacity of 5.

TBDs' ships were always some of the best I've seen around.
