Journey into Space!

Recently Jed and I, along with Sky and Scottie Melnik, took a trip to Babbage’s new moon base in our experimental rocket-powered craft.

The “DangerGirl One” stands ready at the launch pad in the Academy.



The crew gathers at the launch pad and considers the vital question of selecting helmets for the trip.


Settling into the cabin. Scottie pats the ship, “Good rocket. Don’t blow up on us….”



The DangerGirl One has landed! 



Preparing to leave the rocket. 





Luxurious sleeping quarters.



The reading room.



The grand staircase in the main habitat.



A ballroom?



We locate the bar.



The observatory. While gazing up at the Earth, the lines of a song began running through my mind: “We pray for one last landing/ On the globe that gave us birth/ Let us rest our eyes on the fleecy skies/ And the cool, green hills of Earth.” (reference)(audio recording)



The simulation room. Wow!



Homeward bound!



Coming down for a landing in The Port.



Home sweet home!



The intrepid explorers.

    OMG…Scottie is wearing that hat, that HORRIBLE HAT that Tess wears sometimes….

    • Scottie Melnik Scottie Melnik February 6, 2011

      Dude, the hat is cool! It has little gauges and stuff to let you know when you’re just a little hot-headed or about to blow your stack. It even helps you let off steam!

      Yup, the hat plays. *nods all official-like**

      • Stargirl Macbain Stargirl Macbain February 6, 2011

        *glowers* Hate. The. Hate. HATES it. 

        • Scottie Melnik Scottie Melnik February 6, 2011

          *vows to wear it to the Plank next time, just to hear the infamous Stargirl/Gollum voice**

          Is it because it doesn’t have enough gauges and steam emitters? I’ll see if more can be added…

            Filthy hat-wearing hobbitses!  They burns us! They Freezes us! They offends our sensibilites with their filthy ugly hat! 

            That hat is just…THAT HAT. Ugh. So. UGLY.  Tess actually made her’s bigger at some point just to bother me.  BIGGER.  Bigger = even uglier!

    Ah! Wonderful wonderful picture log of the trip! That staircase does look amazing in photos, doesn’t it? I hadn’t seen the simulation room! I must go visit!

    That does look lto be a good looking build. I’ll have to try it out sometime.

    As soon as I can get DeVy to loan me her ship.


    Building one might be faster..

    Especially after last time.


    I did finally find it, it was a crossing error not drinking, no matter what she says.
