You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.
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..."
"But I doubt it'll be pretty."
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!"
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!"
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."
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."
Captain Fury: "Huh, this looks like a pretty nice planet. Good find, Chrome."
Lt. Hawkins: "Can we concentrate on not dying please thank you-"
Chrome: "So what was your plan for the actual landing, captain?"
Captain Fury: "All crew, brace for impact!"
Chrome: "Should have known."
Lt. Hawkins: "We're all gonna die!"
Captain Fury: "It worked! Just like I knew it would!"
Lt. Hawkins: "Riiiight."
And a bit later...
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..."
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!"
Lt. Hawkins: "Unidentified starship coming in!"
Captain Fury: "Uh, just who are you?"
?????: "I am Captain Cliff Dangerstone, head of Space Justice."
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.
Crewman: "Sir, we've picked up a distress signal. Looks like someone else has run afoul of Space Justice."
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."
??????: "It's time that our fight for justice gained some allies."
