This Sucks I Can't Believe It's Taking So Long
Several people showed up at Fort Francis. Most of them stayed to watch the film footage of SCULimpics, held a week earlier. Most of them did not ride. Perhaps they had acquired some information regarding the hazards awaiting the pilots that evening. It is difficult if not impossible to prove.
We set course for deep space, away from our typical forays to the Boston Colonies, and had barely reached the other end of the Watertown System when USB Abandon All Hope's primary thruster failed, requiring field repairs. Unfortunately our O.R.K.. unit was forgotten. NoWayRay had his personal O.R.K., so we were saved.
A patch went on. The tank wouldn't hold air. Another patch went on. The tank still would not hold air. A third patch was applied. The tank finally seemed spaceworthy. We made another 30 feet when the thruster failed again. NoWay then remembered he had another tank in his bag. We were saved!
It was then so late that we decided to return to base. At Luna 7-11 NoWayRay crashed USB Sky King, earning his first BADDVIPS Medal of Injury. On the last leg Crack's Ice cream fell on the ground, completely destroying the last remaining shreds of the crew's morale.
