Operation
Century2003
Thirteen pilots showed for what is the most brutal mission of the season: 100 light years on a chopper. The fleet met in the wee morning hours and launched on time at 0800 hours for NorthStation. Upon arriving at NorthStation, pilots and ships boarded a space shuttle to the Haveril System. We arrived at our destination at 1000 hours and started are long journery home along the merrimac. A brief stop for fuel and we were on our way. However several light years after turning onto PLanetChurch we missed an important starboard and had to encounter some negi Gwell as a resulot of our error. We pressed on in hopes of finding a way back on course and took the first starboard that presemted itself. It turned out that the way back on course was to Take Planet Skunk! All pilots consideed this a good luck beacon and felt confident about our ability to complete the mission. We followed the merrimac to Ipswich where we stopped for more fuel at a local luna. We then headed for the Atlantic Nebula. As we approached the Gloucester system the gwell activity kicked up which made it very difficult for Torquebox who was riding a rather ambitious ship for the century---the hand powered Scrub. We continued on towards Rockport and got held up at a Drawbridge crossing. Here we encountered a fa club of civilians who tried out our ships in exchange for a ride on their's. Shortly after the crossing, Torquebox took a space shuttle ride back to Boston having completed 43 light years! We wished him well and all admired him for having the toughest biceps in the fleet. We then headed onwards through some rather nasty negi gwell activity through the Rockport system and headed back through Gloucester along the NorthShore towards Boston. We stoped for dinner molecules at a Luna bearing two old bicycles along its store front. We them presed on for home. The Lynn System proved to be a rather difficult system to navigate through but the pilots made it through to Everett , Malden and finally back to familiar territory. No major injuries or serious mechanicals were encountered on the mission. Twelve pilots successfully completed the mission at 0015hours in good spirits (despite their cases of star warts).
