Explorations of the Cosmic Frontier

Adventures of Space Captain Eliot - Chapter 5

I think I’m a little better. The ringing in my ears went away last night. I’ve had a headache since the fight, but it’s probably nothing. My Uncle always told me to stay focused, to keep my eye on the ball. I don’t know what ball he was talking about, but I think I get it. I’m going to do that. I need to fly really bad. Flying will help.

After the fight, we met with people from the town. They’re treating us like heroes, which is really cool…I don’t feel like a hero, but it helps to know that we helped people. Focus Eliot!

Our new ship is rad! Yeah, it’s a total mess. These pirate dude’s were total pigs and they don’t know anything about keeping a ship together. Half the systems are busted! Who does that? The stuff that does work is super cool. Tractor beams?! Hell yeah! Oh the best part is Beast. The ship has an AI that sounds a little like Grampa Rosen after he “quit smoking” for the billionth time. But yeah, I can’t wait to dig into the systems and see what else they put in there. Also it’ll say boobies any time you want, which is really awesomely funny.

Oh yeah! We found the jerkface that stole our shuttle before. We not exactly him, but the shuttle. We grabbed it back with super hyper tractor beam power! That dude is going to finish pooping in the woods or whatever he was doing, and come back to a missing ship. Yoink!

We’re getting paid a bunch of money to help these two science-y guys look at the caves where those crazy bug things live. I didn’t want to deal with that again, but I guess we need money to get out of here so we went. Turns out there’s a whole bunch of labs and stuff down there, and a crap-ton of bug things. They were studying a weird pyramid thing that was giving people headaches. But now that we got the bugs out of there (sort of), I can’t wait to find out what it is!

So maybe this place isn’t as boring as I thought. Cool news too. We found a matter cutter for Digger. He’s a total badass now. Perfect sidekick for Captain Eliot!
