They should have sent a poet by Colourbrand They should have sent a poet by Colourbrand
Was going to do a story about the "glory of space" et al...but thought this may say it all.

Its the Kentares again on one of its repetitive trips ;)

Know its a repeat etc - but there is method in the madness :)

Comments and feedback welcome.

Enjoy :)

PS: Ego bonus here - Tell me what film did the title come from?

Very reminiscent of the old Type-L Lab ship from Traveller... which was one of the (very) few ship designs they cooked up that made sense.

I'm guessing that the Kentares doesn't have 'magical' gravity fields?

Yeah...heard about this Type-L Lab ship - love to see more of that machine!

No - this ship is VERY basic - I mean BASIC; the only 'magical' technology it has is the Jumpdrive, an EM field to counter intense radiation, and plasma thrust drives. Aside of that, its as basic as the ISS, no flash tech, no anti-gravs, nothing wow or Star Trek. It is the best we got with the bugger we got. The crew float around and use centrifuge buckets to give their body the feeling of gravity - to prevent gall stones and stuff like that.

Everything is basic - trust me, this is not Star Trek - this is basic and minimal.

Thanks for popping by :)

No problem!

Yeah, the Type-L lab ship in Traveller seemed to fill the post of "doomed science ship" that Star Trek Next Generation seemed to have pop up every 4 or 5 episodes. The poor sods from the Scout Service find something awful out in deep space and it wipes them out... a week or so before some idiots in a Free Trader - your player-characters - pick up their distress signal and decide to check things out.

Ahhhhhh....the old "A Ship, A Crew, A Signal" Story...

Sorry, unlike the fools in Alien - they can keep the f/king money! :thumbsup:

The crew in Alien got screwed over by their employers... and the fine print in their contracts...

Starfleet on the other hand go fool around with ancient, deadly ruins because they are out "to improve themselves". Whatever that means!
