Some thoughts on why I'm in the Space Corps:
The next episode of our adventures is now available.
It does not go well for @muscles
While we're waiting, so long as we have power, I'm going to go hang out in this HoloSim that Birmingham has been working on.
He said he's very proud of it, and that we've never seen anything like it.
Then again, he said that last time, and last time it was just a simulation of an old earth drinking establishment. He kept screaming CHEERS! and saying I KNOW ALL YOUR NAMES! and then when that didn't get a reaction, he conjured up a digital piano man and said "PLAY IT, SAM" and ...
I mean, everyone had a good time, but it wasn't exactly Revelatory.
He says this time will be different, and he's got a twinkly in his eye that makes me believe it. (But, you know, I always believe it. His enthusiasm is just so damn infectious.)
If you'd prefer to Watch our adventures, rather than listening to them, it turns out that's possible too!
If you're in to this kind of thing, please let us know, so we put more effort in to the next one.
Hi all, just a reminder (as per Captain's Orders!) that episode one of Jupiter's Ghost is available now, and that you can subscribe to it with a "Podcatcher", whatever that is, or that you can find it on Spotify, Google #Podcast, Apple #Podcasts, and Stitcher, apparently.
I assume these are services offered by the generation ship we've been docked with. I've never heard of them before, but I haven't heard of a lot of the things the crew of that #spaceship talk about.
At any rate, our adventures continue! I heard a rumor that we'll have a second episode released within a week!
Why is the engine room full of smoke?
There's a #cosmic storm rolling in, and all the ship's functions are on the fritz.
I mean, more on the fritz than normal.
We've been sitting still for several days, as we get to know the crew of this generation ship and help them with, you know, integrating in to a society that is 800 years more advanced than they are.
We're waiting on a big transport to come and pick up the crew, and to haul their ship to a space base.
You know, exceedingly normal things.
But it means we're waiting and I Hate waiting.
I'm trying to figure out what a TIME HOLE is.
I asked Birmingham, and he said "it's basically like this" and queued up a "movie" from his Old Earth collection. I've attached the clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxWN8AhNER0
I still don't understand what a Time Hole is, or if it's a good thing. He's still very excited.
The doc, Muscles, tried to sell me a moustrap for 4 replicator credits.
I told him mice don't exist. He told me I was foolish and a danger to the ship.
He smelled like molten metal, and his eyebrows were singed.
I'm worried about him.
