Refuelling at the Gas Giant

December 30, 2012 15:49

After a rather dull and uneventful flight due to their being no passengers onboard other than Miranda, the Princess emerged from jump in the Noctocol system the previous afternoon.

Not wanting to approach the Overbluff’s fort on an empty tank, Jie had selected a spot to emerge from jump just outside the diameter of the system’s gas giant. There is still a 12-hour journey ahead to get within range of the large planet though and so everyone simply continues with their training activities. Hidden Stash

It’s the early hours of the morning when pheromones they are close enough to the gas giant to start skimming fuel.

Throughout the period, Max looks longingly at the moon where the party members hidden the cargo of pheromones that they took from the defeated Black Panther. Max is practically begging them to stop off and pick them up, telling them that they are worth a fortune and there should be no problem in moving them on a low law level planet. The other simply ignore him though, which makes Max more and more exasperated. When he realizes that there is no chance of getting the others to change their minds, he heads off to his stateroom in a huff.

It takes a little over half an hour before Grim tells Will that the tanks are now full again. Jie plots the course to Noctocol, inputs the coordinates for Will to follow and he hits the gas as the Princess starts on the long journey to the planet.


Coming to an end??? Hell NO !!! Jie is 1 jump from attaining the most coveted thing in the known universe….a +4 skill at Gun Combat (Energy Rifle) !

Soon all she’ll have to do is swing Black Betty around above her head, close her eyes and pull the trigger like an epileptic. All enemies (also probably some chairs, walls and a stray dog or two) will fall before her glorious might!

On a less serious note. Jie kneels down beside the twitching engineer and pulls from her Nobble Hide cloke a portable stomach pump (The Suck-It 2000 tm). She slides the working end down Grims’ throat right there on the museum floor as she places a knee on his arm to keep the tremors down to a minimum. As she prepares the package of charcoal for insertion she, not for the first time, scolds the unconscious Grim about never putting anything Max has in your mouth. We’ve seen the types of women he hangs with, Lord knows where those cookies have been.

As the Suck-Its retaining bag fills with The engineers sloshy, multi-colored belly contents and Jie deftly plunges a 7 centimeter hypodermic needle filled with atropine into Grims chest cavity, she says to the distraught curator “Fate has lead us to you, Martia, this is not the first time we were needed to reunite lost people. We’ve kind of become specialists at it. We may need a permit from the Chief Executive to carry around certain needed investigative devices, however.” ((Please refer to the first and second paragraphs of this comment))
