Space–There’s a lot of it!

Hello. I’m Alnold Kahh, and I’m the captain of this Universal Cruiseship, Expansion.

Well, that isn’t exactly the truth. I am Alnold Kahh, but I’m a mechanical technician at the space dock C, home of the Expansion. Well, it was. I ‘borrowed’ her you see, under the excuse of taking the ship for a test flight after giving her a major service. I didn’t intend to keep her, a ship of this size with only me on board.


Ah, my apologies. This is Nebula, my onboard computer and navigation system. She is the one who actually flies the vessel – I, most of the time, sit back and watch the stars fly by outside. I’m working on an expansion, pardon the pun, so Nebula can use her artificial intelligence and become more hands on, and I will then at least have a face to talk to rather than a computer console. That’s still a work in progress.

All systems are performing within their correct parameters, Alnold.

Thanks, Nebula. My journey is pretty much a work in progress also! I’ve heard rumours of a Paradise Planet, many lightyears away, and that is where we are heading. We have a phrase, it isn’t the destination but the journey itself that matters, so I intend to make the most of this whole journey. Whether I reach this paradise remains to be seen, but this vessel is equipped with the most amazing state of the art technology, so we can cross lightyears within a matter of seconds, so we may get pretty close. If we’re heading in the right direction, that is! Space is a big place. Nebula’s good, really good, but even she doesn’t know the locations of mythical planets in far away star systems.

Alnold, there is a debris cluster ahead. Dropping out of hyperspeed and raising the deflector shields. We should pass through the cluster in approximately fifteen minutes.

So here we are, just travelling through space in a borrowed spaceship. Not a lot tends to happen. Well, up to now…

Will nothing continue to happen?
Will this develop into a new series?
Wait until the next (not so) thrilling instalment (if there is one) to find out!

    Sounds like Alnold is about to discover how complicated space really is… 😉

    Oooh, I think this should be a series! Anything can happen out in space… and frequently does!

        Of course, so they should! You don’t want to be doing ALL the work 😉

      I think Alnold wants it to as well, Icewolf. Who am I to disappoint?
