The Truth of Charybdis

Editorial by Brad Nebula

Consider this an open letter to the citizens of the coalition. Many of you know me from my recent films, Captain Dekatron and The Murder Fish or Space Academy IV. I hope you also know that, beyond an interest in holo-projections, I have deep empathy for the suffering children of the universe.

Several days ago, I left my private vineyard planet because I wanted to help the orphans of the Charybdis occupation. I thought I could make a change for them, but, somehow, I ended up being the one who was changed.

First, let me tell you, Charybdis is dangerous but not for the reasons you think. I believe that our government has destabilized this galaxy in their efforts to control it. They wish to portray Charybdis as lawless and in need of their guiding hand when, in fact, I have only survived here because of the very outlaws and rebels we are trying to sweep away.

I was shot down over Sandfish VII by a scuzzoids, the colloquial term for Coalition assassin droids. Sandfish VII is a small fishing planet and I was immediately taken in by the very orphans I was hoping to help. They forced me to recite lines from my films and wouldn’t stop touching my hair, but, aside from that, they were harmless.

Several pilots immediately came to my defense against these droid assassins and a few even laid their lives down for me, something I can’t ever hope to repay.

I am here of my own free will and living quite happily amongst the people of Sandfish VII. I have found that these people, and most Charybdians, consider themselves members of an independent state and not citizens of the Coalition.

The citizens of Charybdis are prepared to fight and die for their land and livelihoods and I will stand with them until the Coalition recognizes their sovereignty, autonomy and freedom from the commercially motivated interests of the I.C.U.P. and their shadowy masters in the Galaxxon Corporation.

XOXO - B. Nebula

#7

It’ll be a bit before I recalculate everything.


#8

I could have been there, for $60000, plusss damagesss?

Would have been exssstra gritty of me.


#9

What did the Grey Mouser do to deserve no flavor text?


#10

#11

#12

Death awaitsss usss all, with nasssty sssharp pointy teeth.


#13

I know just how you feel.
Thanks being honest with Capt Nixon; I recongnize that extra work is a PITA.
Thanks for all of your work

While we sit at the bar waiting for the ships to come back from their missions, We do know that Mr Nebula is still alive, so at least one ship on MIssion 4 survived.

I was thinking about giving Brad Nebula Don Mondo’s (putative) eye if Tiny didn’t want it (and I survived). Given the great publicity Brad is getting for us, that seems like a nice gesture. We want to give some thought about how we spin this.

I’m a trader. I tried to trade that eyeball for Pedge, but that didn’t seem to work. What else would you suggest we trade that eyeball for? I have enough unblinking eyes on this ship staring at me already.


Epilogue: Mackey
#15

Give it a decsssent funeral. Mondo deserved that, at leassst. I find making trophiesss of lizsssards a little disssstasssteful.


#16

Of courssse, feel free to ignore my opinion. I might be dead, after all.


#17

FTFY :wink:

Results

Tiny arrived just outside Ella's system looking to tangle with Pedge and all he found was a wall of ships, friends to Pedge and hired guns. Pedge had sought refuge aboard the Sylla, out of reach and out of range. It was at that moment Tiny realized he wasn't looking for Pedge at all, he was looking for a fight.

Always up for a brawl, Das Boot and Aluminum Mallard were dragged into the skirmish against five other ships. They had a greater hull capacity but they were outnumbered and outgunned, Tiny's squad perished but not before taking down Dr. Esstimpress and The Nitimeistheritime.

You manage to dodge the first several volleys, the Talionis is getting pounded and you see the captain of the Mallard take a space walk. It's two ships against five.

Dr. Esstimpress spins out of control and you launch your homing missles into the mess. Four against two but it still isn't going well.

You know this is the end when Marshal Seldon lines you up and starts transmitting a Coalition Rights Policy. You interrupt the transmission with a volley of homing missiles and The First Post1 breaks in melting your boat to slag.

The battle takes too long and the damage you're soaking up is pushing the limits of your new hull. Das Boot appears from nowhere with a line on you and it's all you can do to turn the guns in time. It was you or them.

You drop in on a G2-4311 Android in pursuit of Brad Nebula. You quickly assssesss it's weak points and drive home a volley of zot gun fire and a Mondo cannon blast for good measure. Despite dealing a respectable amount of damage, the scuzzoid barely has your ship off balance. The hull density improvements appear to have been a good investment.

Marshal Cochrane shows up to relieve Charybdis of a rage-filled Space Lizard and a few of his friends. It's a long battle and takes a toll on all involved. The Ironclad takes a few small blasts from the Aluminum Mallard and dishes out heavy damage in return.

After the battle you swing by Ella's to pick up the mail and find a package lumped in with the bills. Inside is a Chupalla, a perfect hat for you, now standard issue for frontier lawmen.

You take a few good blasts from each of the ships you're up against. The hula dancer rattles on the dash, the pile of organs slosh around a bit. You dig out the homing missiles, better use up that old ordinance. A few well placed shots and the Mallard is a lame duck.

You turn to face the Talionis... he's been taking heavy fire from all fronts and it's just a matter of finsihing him. You press the button and watch a rain of scrap metal. Salvage time.

As you're flipping through audio files, the Wanderer drops out of hyperspace and dull blue lights flip on, indicating you've entered low-power mode. It appears that you didn't purchase enough fuel to make the jump. A miscalculation? A glitch in the firmware.. again?

This could be the end. You could just let the power run down. A nice quiet way to go like sleeping... unless some good samaritan comes by with a charge.

At twenty octodeciflops, you've got plenty of time to think about it. Maybe a walk down to the weapons bay to bathe in the Mondo Cannon? ...But what about the new paint job?

– SYSTEM NOTE –

Apologies for the late update, there may be more errors than usual, I had to hastily re-run some of the stats this morning. Totally my fault. Please check your numbers and make sure things look right.

It will help me in the future if you keep all of your purchases and mission selections in one place, the people who have adopted the shopping list method and include their expected totals are the ones I usually make fewer errors on transcribing.

Private message mission selections are going to be allowed for the rest of the game. To make it easier for me, please include the name of your subject line, like this - Spiceship - Secret Mission Selection

Getting down to it… Only TWO more mission sets left. Thank you all for playing, I’m excited to see how it wraps up!!
