The Beginning

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.

The Beginning

Post by Theblackdog » Sun Nov 10, 2019 2:00 pm

Part 1

Image
T.L.A. ships flee the shattered remains of New York.
Chrome: "What's our plan now, Captain?"
Captain Fury: "That depends on whether we can survive the end of the universe. I don't know what it's going to be like..."

Image
"But I doubt it'll be pretty."

Image
Image
Image

Image
Lt. Hawkins: "Captain, sensors detect some kind of energy wave! It's coming from directly astern. It's massive!"
Captain Fury: "This is it! All ships, brace for... Fuck! I dunno what, but brace for it!"

Image
Lt. Hawkins: "Signal from the De Laval has been lost!"
Chrome: "Captain, there's some kind of gap in the energy field. It's not much, but it's our only chance."
Captain Fury: "I'm going for it!"

Image
"COME ON!"

Image

Later...
Image
Captain Fury: "Was that... it?"
Chrome: "So it appears. I'm detecting new stars and planets forming at a massively accelerated rate."
Captain Fury: "Did... did any other ships make it out?"
Lt. Hawkins: "No capital ships. Some fighters and shuttles. I'm signaling them to form up with us."

Image
Chrome: "There appears to be a planetary system with a habitable world ahead, Captain. Scans show no signs of civilization."
Captain Fury: "Finally some good news. Let's claim it and start re-establishing the T.L.A."
Lt. Hawkins: "Captain, with our remaining shuttles, it'll take forever to get everyone down to the surface-"
Captain Fury: "Don't worry, I have an idea."
Lt. Hawkins: "What-"
Captain Fury: "All crew, brace for re-entry!"
Lt. Hawkins: "Ulp."

Image
Captain Fury: "Huh, this looks like a pretty nice planet. Good find, Chrome."
Lt. Hawkins: "Can we concentrate on not dying please thank you-"

Image
Chrome: "So what was your plan for the actual landing, captain?"
Captain Fury: "All crew, brace for impact!"
Chrome: "Should have known."

Image
CRUNCH
Lt. Hawkins: "We're all gonna die!"

Image
Captain Fury: "It worked! Just like I knew it would!"
Chrome: "Right."
Lt. Hawkins: "Riiiight."

And a bit later...
Image
Lt. Hawkins: "We've got the comm node working, Captain."
Captain Fury: "Great. If we can get in contact with the ships that escaped with the Luchardsko, we'll have an ally and a good start on rebuilding civilization."
Lt. Hawkins: "I haven't gotten a signal from them yet - hold on. I'm getting something. But it's not the fleet. It's the Pericles..."

Image
Captain Fury: "Sam!"
Sam Porter Bridges: "Good to hear from you again, Captain. How's the rest of the T.L.A.?"
Captain Fury: "We've, uh... been better. How are you even contacting us from the Beige Linoleum?"
Sam: "We've been through quite the mess ourselves. But it turned out all right in the end. Wait till you see what the Quantumsurfers did with our ship-"
Lt. Hawkins: "Captain!"

Image
Lt. Hawkins: "Unidentified starship coming in!"

Image
Captain Fury: "Uh, just who are you?"
?????: "I am Captain Cliff Dangerstone, head of Space Justice."

Image
Captain Clint Firestone: "And for the crime of conspiracy to obtain and use Antimortallium, you are all under arrest!"

Elsewhere, an unremarkable frigate drifts through the void.

Image
Crewman: "Sir, we've picked up a distress signal. Looks like someone else has run afoul of Space Justice."
??????: "Hmm..."
Crewman: "Looks like they're some group calling themselves the T.L.A., sir."
??????: "Oh? That is interesting. Fly a search pattern and scan for the Space Justice ships."
Crewman: "Sir?"
??????: "It's time that our fight for justice gained some allies."

Awesome! Nice closure for the TLA from Ragnablok and the story going forward looks dope! Now I just have to finish the story for the Pericles so they can join in the fun :omnom:
I make apocalypses and apocalypse accessories.

I love it. I am excited to see what happens with the space justice people.
