SCUL pilots started off the night right! MRC was packed with busy and hard working pilots. War got a new axle and cones fitted to its beloved secondary thruster. A civi ship was fixed up. Bieber Fever's primary plasma casing was replaced and other fleet ships were tuned up for tonight's mission.
This mission was all about getting back on the ship and not letting previous missions affect SCUL. Mission objectives were to reach an ice cream merchant before they closed. No turbulence (aka potholes). Bring a stuffed animal and dress comfy. Go swimming. Lick some lollipops.
Cloudbuster is still resting from last week's mishap. Leotard was kind enough to lend Trinity to Skunk and outfitted the primary life support system to it. Leotard rode Yer Mom with a radiobox.
SCUL's first destination was Luna Tuscanini's but the line was too long. Navigator Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaane Thunderwolf led the fleet to a different ice cream merchant. Luna JP Licks was perfect for the pilots. Everest in her comfy Cookie Monster pajamas really played up her part as pilots entered the merchant's establishment. COOOOOKIE MOONNNNSTER!!!! Stogie did not care what kind of ice cream molecules Acehole brought back to him as long as it was something that Stogie liked.
While consuming ice cream molecules the fleet was ambushed by a decloaking Klingon on a bomber. Something must have been wrong with the Klingon as he could not remember his name and it kept changing throughout the mission. Also outside Luna JP Licks pilots wooed civilians with their ships and silver tongues. Skunk intercepted some veteran pilots in a passing by transport and chatted them up. They may fly again in the near future.
The mission carried on with high spirits and relaxing life support. The fleet stopped for shore leave at a Luna 7-11 where pilots consumed lollipop molecules and also saved some for later. Pilots also took some time to try out some ships that they have never flown before. Acehole learned how to mount Moneypenny and made some really good attempts at it. Skunk flew Bronco and gave it a review "This ship has some personality." Another Klingon was found.
The fleet pressed on towards the sekret swimming nebula! The fleet pulled off the space way to fix Trinity's fancy life support system as a wire popped out. Skunk had to scare some wild life real quick, but it was a private mission, no one else was invited. After he got back, a few pilots decided to calm the wildlife so they would welcome us back. They pressed on through some rough space. This space sort of felt like it should have been included in the mission Over Under Around and Through (to Grandmothers house). Lordmcfuzz was not content with the navigator's choice of path and decided to make his own. The other pilots were not sure that his path was any better as Skunk was shrieking as much as Lordmcfuzz was. Lordmcfuzz had to make two emergency dismounts off Moneypenny during this portion of the mission. They were mildly successfully and wowed maggot Proteus and one of the following Klingons.
After climbing some more negi g-wells the Fleet reached our sekret swimming hole. Space suits were quickly removed and Acehole was the first in the water. "Get out of the water" was heard across the nebula, and every pilot froze. Luckily the STs were talking to a less stealthy group of civilians across the expanse, but we still sat there in silence for five whole minutes while snickering at Leotards excellent jokes about the planets. "The moon is so fricking dusty, why don't they send a giant Roomba up there to clean it?! It's an embarrassment to Earth. What must the aliens think?!" Skunk declared all clear and Acehole still beat everyone back into the nebula. The nebula was cold, but only if a pilot was half way in. It was warm if a pilot was not in it or all the way submerged. Acehole gave Lordmcfuzz, Beetle Juice and Magneto massaging bubbles. He probably is a hot tub jet when he is not a super hero SCUL pilot. Pilots and klingons alike burned up. Leotard lost her beloved mouse Frederick. Maybe it was eaten by the giant heron as it paid no attention to Skunk's mouse when he offered it up as tribute. Snow lost his Earth credit holder. Pilots searched high and low and were unable to find it.
Skunk had more issues with Trinity as the Fleet left the nebula. Redcoat formation was successfully called and executed twice (Dart was called in between due to an oncoming transport). The fleet transitioned into Checkers, the new formation from a few missions ago, expertly and without any issues. Skunk almost lost his antenna but he saved it!
The fleet headed into the Minuteman Worm Hole and enjoyed the posi g-well. Snow politely asked Leotard to pass her. This surprised Leotard as no SCUL pilot ever asks politely to pass another pilot! Leotard was so baffled that she flew Yer Mom like Elliot did in E.T. but lost control and flipped over the wormhole curb and fence. She was really determined that she could just fly away even when she was upside down, as her feet were still powering her thrusters. Sadly her efforts and the politeness of Snow were not enough to keep her flying and she bumped her brain container. Medibag was brought out and pilots patched her up. She still remembered who the president was so she was cleared to fly. Snow burned up and then burned back down.
The pilots were very grateful that the rest of the mission was relaxing. Mission success!
