To The 29 Monuments: Lordmcfuzz Day
It was Lordmcfuzz's 29th orbital, so he led a mission in which we visited 29 monuments.
On this monumental day 9 pilots set out to to investigate the effect of black holes on aging, and visit 29 Historic space monuments. Admiral Skunk Christened his new ship Golden Eagle. With a wonderful tale about his child-hood pilot-gang of one, where his call sign was Golden Eagle.
We had a scientificist named Beryll, and his hybrid-alien friend Rocks. It was a standard mission at the start but very quickly it became apparent that things were not as they should be. Space was quiet. Too quiet. Wombat requested a stop be made to repair the life support on Cloud Buster. The repair was perhaps hasty, for it seems it left life support giving off extreme high pitched frequencies only hybrid-aliens could hear. The ships has been equipped to handle these phenomena but Berryls ship was being shaken apart by the intensity waves of groove which were not being properly balance out by the usual space noise. As the fleet rushed past an intergalactic molecule station the gravitation particles it gave off accelerated the destruction process and the civilian vessel caring Berryl and Rocks was instantly evaporated.
Unsavory snacks were soon required for the grieving fleet. Even space pilots need to eat their depression. Mission Leader Lordmcfuzz was not unphased, but he was undeterred. The 29 important historical markers would be visited, and time would be tested! We left our temporary marks and flew on to the next. In a rare mood we created emblems of our grief and memories of our fallen comrades.
As the fleet came through the Harvard galaxy the people were over joyed. Which makes sense as this galaxy has a great deal of appreciation for monuments. One young man actually propelled himself in a space suit alone into space just to briefly fly next to us, shouting "I love this!"
HI-5 was in no short supply, as all our ships received buckets of its epic energy boost . In the Central galaxy it was much the same. And we approached our first black hole. The famed Kendall Square black hole. And something strange began to occur. As Lordmcfuzz was aging forward, Admiral Skunk was aging BACKWARDS! Suddenly he was 8 years old again, and he was insisting we all call him Golden Eagle! We are still bewildered at this sudden Zipping back and forth from the front of the fleet to the back with no fear and no caution! But what were we going to do! We have no official Fleet Doctor to proclaim him unfit for Admiral duties! So at his 8 year old command, we were given no choice but to head to... A PLAY GROUND! Lord McFuzz called shore leave. Perhaps it was inspiration of having a kid-Admiral, but McFuzz decided he wanted a candle lit for his birthday but he lost his lighter at the last stop! The Admiral wouldn't have it! Every little Starship Pilot deserves a candle on his birthday! So the fleet searched high and low, when Rocket remembered there was a small gas powered soldering iron in Wooki Bag and saved the day!
The fleet saw a strange pile of potato sacks and soon was found crossing a busy hyper space byway and flying our military grade ships in civilian heavy transport lanes. Navigator Bane ThunderWoooooolf expertly go the fleet safely through it and headed towards the most important Historical Space Marker of all! The Pointy Beacon! Kid-Admiral Golden Eagle ordered the fleet to traverse another playground but this time Cloud Buster was too big to fit through it, causing a slight delay! Well the fleet managed to find another way around for Cloud Buster, but Wombat was exhausted.
As we neared The Pointy Beacon, space was treacherous, so in an attempt not to lose anyone else tonight, Wombat decided to space-walk up the long and winding negi-g-well orbit to The Pointy Important Beacon. Admiral Golden Eagle kept him going with lots of positive reinforcement.
Once the fleet had safely landed, we had a momentous knighting as TUFF n TINY dubbed Ziquarat a Pilot of SCUL... Hip hip HURRAY!
One more blackhole near the Leach-mere Galaxy, left us all feeling nauseous so a mass fuel dump was needed. Afterward it seemed this returned our Admiral to normal. However Rocket was left with Loony Tunes playing in his head, and Sprocket decided to climb a tree. It was smooth sailing back to the Fort Tyler. Lordmcfuzz has been forever changed by time and is now forever a year older. Fleet Admiral Skunk seems to have been left with a residual box of Star Trek: The Next Generation toys. Berryl and Rock have not been heard from, but science is almost certain that their particles reformed somewhere in the Union Galaxy and they will both be excited to review the data collected by the mission.
