Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 20, 2007, 11:40pm

We finally get to the shuttle bay after about an hour of looking around. Freaking huge ship…

Fang opens the door of the craft easily enough, and can even work the controls a liittle. These things aren't really designed for nonterrains. He folds the seat back into a laying down position, and hops on. Now then to disable the scanners that tell the Jubber this is here, and we'll be on our way. Prying something loose he crawls back outside the shuttle with, and drops among some crates that won't be going anywhere anytime soon…maybe.

"I'm….All set. Pitstops?" He says scampering back into the shuttle.

I drop my hammer in the corner of the shuttle, but don't go back to human form. I don't really need to be flesh and blood if we explode in the middle of space.

"Uh… I dunno… You sure you can fly this thing? It didn't really look like you knew what you were doing over there…"

Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 20, 2007, 11:53pm

"K'lk…over where? I was flying before you were born."
Granted that was in a wind storm on Vega most likely, but still flying.

He motion the controls, and pulls a few Bounty Hunter dry dock tricks to get it out of the docking bay with little fuss. The door was triggered by an old maintenance test frequency. The things people forget on old klunkers.

"V'o…We're off. Besides from here we can use the Autopilot till we hit the pirate sectors."

Post by Tank on Jul 20, 2007, 11:56pm

"Right…"

We're so gonna die.

"That autopilot gonna record where we're going? We don't need to get caught after the fact."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 20, 2007, 11:58pm

"F'g…" He shrugs,"…shouldn't. We can erase it so long as nothing happens to it."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 12:01am

"Right. Alright, so we're gonna run around down there, steal some stuff, and fly back? I don't wanna run into Galactus, or whatever freak he's put on a giant surfboard this week."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 12:05am

"R'm…Galactus was a myth to the best of my knowledge before that incident. Pirates should be the worst we haft to deal with. If we run into Pizza the Hut you can eat him."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 12:10am

I have to glare at him for a moment. Is my lack of sleep catching up to me, or did an alien just reference Spaceballs?

"You know we'll probably get shot for running off with this thing, it better be worth it."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 12:13am

"E'p…Of course it'll be worth it. If everything goes according to plan I will be able to live down my probation in splender, and you….what are you going to do with your half?"


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 12:18am

Do I tell him I have no actual idea what the hell we're hunting for, and I just wanted to go steal something?

"I'll stash it under my bed until I can smuggle it home."

There are so many lies in that sentence, I don't even know where to start.

That reminds me… If this isn't worth it, should I break his arms? No, he's just an alien. He doesn't know the things I know. I'll break one of his arms if this winds up sucking. That way he'll still have plenty more, and I'll be happy knowing I've hurt somebody.


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 12:21am

Fang looks at him weird. Which really isn't much different from his normal look.

"G'og….Why? With that many creds you could have a nice fast ship, servants, or maybe even a small moon, or asteriod."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 12:27am

"Creds?"

Holy fuck… I thought he meant credibility… Why the hell would I think that? What am I, slow?

"Oh yeah yeah, creds. Yeah, I'll buy a little moon, or something. Actually now that I think about it, I could get this hammer fixed up. It's a nice hammer. I always wanted one."

Wait a minute… Something caught my brain there…

"Probation? Probation for what?"


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 12:32am

"N'ka…Nothing much. I just went into an Intergalactic Embassy to bring back a bounty. Diddn't count on having to deal with all the red tape. Intergalactic Laws are made up, changed, and destroyed so fast you don't even know if gravity will be taxed tomorrow."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 12:40am

"I've never heard of a government anal ramming somebody just for bringing in a bounty. Whatever. Not like I can talk."

I start entertaining myself by playing around with some of the controls on the shuttle. A loud beeping sound and hearing a horrifying grinding sound gets me to put everything back the way it was.


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 12:45am

Fang just shakes his head. "Z'ggy…well it wouldn't of been so bad if I had waited for him outside, but I was'nt going to chance him using the teleporter. 800,000 creds is alot of creds for that shit, and I'm still not sure how I got caught. Damn security must be set to ultra sensitive to get past my skills."

At least I hope that was it. If I find out my partner double crossed me, I'm sending him to my homeworld to mate. That'll teach him!


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 12:48am

"Right, okay. Probably no security systems where we're going, so this should make up for it. Tell me how you know about this thing we're gonna find."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 12:52am

"H'lg…Old friend of mine from the Bounty Hunter Corps. We go back a few years. He gave me it as a bit of a way of hopefully getting out of the biz, and never going back to the homeworld. The mere thought of that place gives me nightmares."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 12:56am

"Tell me he was a weakling, and that's why he isn't going after this thing himself. Or you bit him and wrapped him up in a cocoon, or something."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 1:00am

"G'wa…Nah he is currently on the othersside of the universe on the hunt for the Mad Kree. Where I would be if I didn't need to be on Auxilary business for the duration of my probation. 300,000,000 cred bounty."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 1:03am

"Hmph. Lucky. It's gonna suck to have all this money and nothing to spend it on…"


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 1:05am

"B'ah…Cred can buy you nearly anything you want, and if Earth don't accept cred buy into something they do deal in. Just be careful not to saterate the market. The last thing a small world like that needs is a financial revolution."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 1:11am

"Ffft. Screw what Earth needs. I don't intend to come back there anytime soon… I'll oversaturate it with gay pirates, that'll work."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 1:18am

"R'p…I fail to see what happy pirates will do to them, but if you say so."

*beep…beep…beep…beep*

"Q'rk…Ah good we within range," he pauses to run a quick scan,"…good news Oxygen is normal, Gravity is 3/5ths what it is normal for you terrains. No defense turrents. Appears to be some oddity where the old medlabs were. Ah, and our Bounty the B'onanzai! Coming in beatifully…something just has to go wrong now. This is too easy."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 1:22am

"Good. So I don't have to put on one of those stupid suits. Those things look like shit."

I go to the back and rest my hammer on my shoulder.

"I got up to do this in the middle of the night, nothing easy about it."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 1:27am

Fang lands the shuttle. "E'rgz…I really don't like this though. We couldn't detect any lifeforms. I'm pretty sure I didn't disconnect those too."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 1:29am

"Aw come on, don't pussy out on me now. We go in, get what we want, and get out."

Holding my hammer, I open up the door with my free hand.


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 1:34am

"T'k…Pussy? I don't know what that is, but it sounds evil." He scampers out of the shuttle, and looks around the worn out space station. The thing about abandoned is there is usually a reason. Derelict usually means that place has structure problems. Not that smugglers, and pirates really care. I really need to start carrying a gun. Maybe something mounted on my thorax.

"G'ig…Okay I think the scanners said around deck 6 from here thats about 2000ft roughly, and watch your step."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 1:39am

"Yeah, evil is a good word for it… 2000 feet? I could probably try just tearing out the ceiling and you could throw us up there. It's not like we have to worry about keeping this thing in one piece."

I look around. What a dump. It hits me that we probably traveled like, a million billion miles from the Juber to this heap of garbage, and we did it pretty quick. Maybe being in space isn't gonna be so bad.


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 1:46am

Fang scratches his head amont. "Zz'k…Structure stability as it as it you might cause a dominoe effect. As well as more space debris. Wait a minute for no life forms we got movement."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 1:49am

"What, like, actual movement? Then let's go bash us some skulls."

I wind up my hammer and charge in, swinging at pretty much anything that moves.


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 1:54am

Tank runs into a semi dark room. When Fang arrives with a flashlight, they can now see he his destruction derby has destroyed several things that look like inflatible punching bags.

"H'wa…Nice work. Now we need to see about getting to the elevator. Already spotted 3 holes in the floor. None of them leading up."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 21, 2007, 1:58am

"Look around, no power. What good's an elevator if it doesn't have power? Unless you plan to web us up."

I bash a couple more punching bags and start looking around for anything that looks for an elevator. I'll slide open any doors I see.

«Time for my bedtime, we'll continue this next time. Feel free to kick me if it looks like I forgot.»


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 21, 2007, 2:02am

"G'rk…It seems a better route then furthering weakening a decaying structure, and bringing us to space. You do weigh less then 2 tons right?"


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 23, 2007, 12:50am

"Uh… Sure, I guess. I never checked."

«He does, he weighs around 500 lbs.»


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 23, 2007, 1:25am

«Odd you'd think rocks would weigh more. Sorry about the late reply.»

The Elevater doors are wide open in a off beat manor that shows disrepair. Fang shoots a webline up, grabs Tank, and climbs to the deck 6. "Z'zt…You okay?"


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 24, 2007, 11:17am

«The Thing weighs about 400/500 lbs, so I ran with that.»

"Fine."

Upon reaching the second set of elevator doors, I kick them in and jump into the hallway, then pull the spider in.


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 25, 2007, 8:27pm

«The thing is made from alien rocks…at least sometimes.

Sorry for the late reply. Forced downtime.»

"GAK!" Spider slams into a nearby wall.


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 26, 2007, 12:03pm

"Whups. Watch that."

After tossing him in through the hallway, I shut the door behind me. Not for any reason, it just creeps me the hell out to have an open door behind me.

"Where to next? Down this hall?"


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 26, 2007, 12:26pm

"S'zk…scanneer just went dead, but it should only be thirty feet straight ahead, and to the left.


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 27, 2007, 3:59pm

Meanwhile elsewhere…

A ship was approaching.

"Rark…Captain scanners are picking up intruders on the station. There getting near the Banannas."

"Hmm….Know. Exactly. What. To. Do. Rawk. Hold. Position. Jam. Scanners. And. Communication."

"Erk Yes, Capitan."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Tank on Jul 27, 2007, 4:29pm

"Fine, let's just go without it then. We don't need it."

I'll go in first, since I dunno if spider boy can really take a hit like I can.

"Cover me."


Re: Stealing crap
Post by Sir Nathaniel/Fang on Jul 27, 2007, 4:30pm

Fang Scampers to just before the door entrance. Looking both several ways with 8 eyes before shaking his head because it hurt.
