Skunk Day 2013: Electric Boogaloo II
A dozen brave pilots dared join the Fleet Admiral in his celebration of completing 44 Earth revolutions: a mission destined to be full of surprises. The first was Leotard's honorific costume that recreated the image of Skunk in his normal habitat, aboard a ship. Shortly before takeoff, Starmada headquarters reached out to have SCUL MAD investigate an unknown anomaly in the local vicinity.
With assistance from Red Squirl and her science gear, the fleet was able to find and follow a chalky white disturbance to the Davis Constellation where Ice Cream molecules lurked beyond a veil of a few Earth credits. A short shore leave ensued, whereupon civilians marvelled at the funk-emanating ships. The fleet then made its way toward the Super Mega Awesome Interspatial Funkadelic Roller Rink of Extreme 3D Photography. Spirits ran high despite minor radiation as pilots made space walks with mirth, balloons, and strange gliding shoes.
With the admiral distracted by these festivities, Red Squirl, BaneThunderwolf and Threespeed were able to construct a surprise in the form of a mini cake, complete with functional mini disco dethstah. A brief singing ritual ensued, then the fleet voracious ate the cake. Red Squirl was knighted shortly thereafter and the fleet set sail once more.
A swing through the Kendall constellation yielded a fuel dump at Akamai headquarters, laced with many pretty light traps to distract the unaware pilots. Two babymaggots joined the mission, SideKick and Datam0sh, who finished the night with a dance off (won as usual by perma-maggot Tyrian).
