“Why me?” Frank Johnson kicked the floor of the Silver Streak’s vast hangar deck. Behind him, the shuttlecraft looked like a huge brick--a description that seemed more than usually apt now. He didn’t see how the craft would ever be able to maneuver, laden with an unreasonable supply of gold. Who measured wealth in gold nowadays anyway?
Well, obviously the colonists in the Omega Sector did. A closely packed group of solar systems in globular cluster M4, the Omega Sector was the Silver Streak’s most unusual colony--or group of colonies. Usually two hundred colonists were sent down to a planet to start a new life; but here, three separate planets had been colonized, and although each had its own government, their economic system was based on the mining of rich asteroids by private ventures. Whose idea that was Frank didn’t know. Certainly not Captain Cameron’s; Richard
FYS: Visitors Part 2“Turn it off, turn it off!” Dr. Giacometti begged, covering her ears as the high pitched, multi-octave screeching filled the conference room. The Groupmind's kernel in the Explorer's main system did so immediately, but left the primitive, pixelated graphics view on the wall, of the huge, artificial chamber filled with primitive 8-bit icons, billions of icons, each representing a severed mind living in a near total sensory deprivation. A deprivation that had been going on for over a thousand years, tended by their mechanical masters.FYS: Visitors Part 25 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
There was a dead silence in the room. Not even the crew's morphs dared interrupt it, as they contemplated the problem before them.
Col. Mitterrand cleared his throat, trying to remain calm for the sake of his crew, while the atavistic desire to panic and run tempted him. “So, to be clear. Going by what the.... OtherMind... told us, there are about five billion alien brains in those tanks we saw, living in that... VR cr

It was winter in Exition, which really didn’t mean anything. It did not snow, and the only reason it got colder was because there was a huge cloud of fallout in the air. Jetstream hated this weather. It made his joints hard to move.
He yawned and lay down on the ground. There were no duties for the day, as Stride was currently out on a scouting patrol. This meant that he had the entire day to freeze. Oh, what fun…
Watchman approached him. “What’s going on?”
“Bored out of my mind.” Jetstream growled. “And it’s cold to top it off. What is with this weather?”
“It is cold.” Watchman commented. “Certainly enough to freeze one’s joints, I’d say.”
Jetstream yawned. “The Battle Gears are scouting, which means I have an entire day to suffer through the cold.”
“What do you wanna do?”

Coast of Durban, Africa.
Thrice I have attempted to write down my thoughts of my discovery, and thrice have my fingers faltered and my vision clouded with curiosity. Now, however, I find the time and place to record what may be the greatest discovery of my lifetime: a discovery that opens as many portals to possibilities in biology and zoology that it will have entire universities throwing themselves upon my findings! The very foundations of science will tremble!
If anyone will believe me, that is.
A few weeks ago, I came to Durban to study the mysterious deaths of Lamniforme sharks found near the ocean floor with teeth marks on their flesh unlike the mark of any predator in the area. During my studies, which were inconclusive, I found half of a lyre, battered and beaten and rusted by the cruel fangs of nature, laying on the sands of a Durban beach.

The eerie quietness is a common companion for those aboard The Einsamkeit or, to those who have been on the vessel long enough or even those who know what it means to work in a cargo carrier, The Lonely. It’s like an inside joke; people think the “lucky” few who spend life in space are happy. What’s happy about spending your time visiting other worlds to only look at them from the hold or hangers. Others who know truth know they’re not important. They are the ants, the shifty bridge that connects people to their wants and desires.
“Captain?” A lanky man walked into the center of the ship’s small bridge, He placed his hand on the head of the captain’s chair. The one occupying it seems to pay no heed to his requesting subordinate.
“We’ll be arriving on Orion in a few hours,” the subordinate finished.

The red haired woman continued to smile widely at me as her eyes seemed to search mine. Looking pleased with what she was seeing, she stuck her hand out in my direction.
“I’m Savannah! It’s nice to meet you!”
“Alano. Likewise? Pardon my rudeness but, what exactly is your business here?” My right hand was still gripping my machete.
Turning my head I glanced at the windshield of the van, I couldn’t see anyone else inside it but I wasn’t sure what I’d just walked into. Quickly I scanned Savannah for any signs of a weapon, she didn’t seem to have one on her; at least not one I could see. She wore a long denim jacket with a wide assortment of decorative buttons on the chest of it. She also wore dark blue bellbottom jeans that ended with brown cow girl boots.

Kuningatar Ylende ei ollut lainkaan tyytyväinen. Amesdenin suvun 300-vuotisjuhlista oli kulunut vähän yli viikko ja hänestä tuntui kuin kaikki hänen ympärillään olisivat menettäneet järkensä. Ensinnäkin hänen nuorimmaisensa Landon oli saanut epäkypsän kiukuttelukohtauksen juhlien jälkeen, mikä oli pakottanut hänet lähettämään pojan Volansokselle rauhoittumaan. Mikä Landonia oikein vaivasi? Hän oli järjestänyt asiat poikiensa eduksi ja kiitokseksi nuorimmainen oli haukkunut hänet pystyyn. Miten hän oli saattanut tehdä niin? Tuon välikohtauksen muisteleminen sai kuningattaren kiristelemään hampaitaan. Hieno päivä oli mennyt pilalle mokoman nujakan vuoksi.
