We traveled to the Allston System. We hit a negi G-well with massive pull. F5 Palantir and CurbBurner made it, USB Centvrion and USB AbandonAllHope did not. A spacewalk was inevitable. We reached the Allston Colony. There we saw UmLaut and RockinRobin. We told many CBUs about SCUL and allowed some to try our ships. After several Earth hours we departed for the next colony. On the way there was a surprise. The battalion decided to pick up speed. The group was going about Warp 20 when it happened. USB AbandonAllHope's primary thruster completely locked up. Skunk crashed landed the ship in a spectacular way. A taxi transport had to skid to avoid collision with the wreckage. Investigations showed the landing gear malfunctioned and was thrown into the thruster. This created a skid approximately fifty feet long. Thirteen spokes were broken, these spokes have since been removed and blessed and are now 'The Thirteen Holy Spokes of SCUL'. Also the booster rockets were scraped up extensively. Skunk was also scraped up extensively.
We decided to spacewalk to Fort Ridgemont and switch ships. The wreckage of USB AbandonAllHope was placed in the hangar, and Crack remained at the Fort, where she is stationed, leaving an extra ship avialable. Stinky returned to Fort Francis, as did MegaSeth. Skunk rode on to the Central Constellation to rendez vous with UmLaut and RockinRobin, who were unaware of the incident. From Central we went on to the second scheduled colony, named "The Decline of Modern Thought". By the time we arrived it was pretty late. Most people wad retuned to their stations. We did see Hu-Man Sam, however. Also the colony's medical officer examined the wounds, and ordered Skunk to return to base before a space virus took advantage of the open flesh. Skunk complied and returned to base without incident.
