Peace reigned across the cosmos thanks to the bravery and derring-do of the Quantum Quadrant Speed-of-Light Elite Fleet. Beneath the gentle glow of a nearby nebula, a swirling ball of spiralling light bits span around a supernova and sped towards a distant horizon of stars.
‘Oy!’ said Gloria (Elite Fleet Flighter). ‘We agreed: nothing to go near the supernova, yeah?’ And to emphasise her point she shot a laser into the void of space. It made a PEW-PEW noise, because everyone else in the Quantum Quadrant Speed-Of-Light Elite Fleet did the sound effect over their Communic8ion GobPipes. Then they went into a flying-V formation, just because they could.
‘But it’s my turn!’ said Zeke (another Elite Fleet Flighter), in a slightly whiny manner. He’d set off the light-bits bomb to get the Fleet’s attention.
‘No! You forfeit your go because we didn’t get the last one,’ said May-Li (a further Elite Fleet Flighter), who Zeke suspected of making up the rules as she went.
The last round hadn’t gone well. The Fleet had worked out that it was a six-word film, and the fifth word was sundance, but beyond that they’d been stuck. They did agree that the way Zeke had manipulated space to convey sundance was extraordinary. Indeed, this was the reason a supernova was billowing away in the background a few thousand centuries too early. The EliteFlighterFreighterCruiser had made some warning bleets when it picked up that data.
‘I’ve got a good one,’ said Aliki (Elite Etc.) ‘Ready?’
The Fleet chorused that they were Ready.
