[SCENE: On the bridge of ISS Titanic, currently in drydock and running on minimal power. An occasional indicator light flashes here & there and life support is just above minimum levels, but otherwise the place is dark.
The reverie is shattered by the appearance of a large, orange ball of light, which quickly coalesces into six figures – Lord Darth Venomous, his XO Korrioth, engineer emeritus Merlin and current chief engineer Ozy McCool, communicatinos wunderkind T-Bone McManx and tactical officer K’hadibak’h.]
VENOMOUS (apparently to no one in particular): Computer! Lights!
OZY MCCOOL: One second, Admiral. I believe we left the main computer in standby.
[McCool pulls out a tricorder-looking device and keys in a sequence. Immediately the lights come up & sounds fill the bridge as the control systems come back online.
McCool casts a glance at Venomous.]
VENOMOUS: Good work, Ozy. Thank you.
[McCool merely nods.]
VENOMOUS: You’re sure you & Merlin have things figured out this time?
MERLIN: Yes, Admiral. We’ll be ready to take Titanic out no later than four days from now.
MERLIN: I’ll hold you to that, Wizard. Grab whomever you need from spacedock and let’s get this beast flying. (to all) Repair stations, please.
Heads-up, Denizens. The long-awaited upgrade of the WordPress engine begins now. (Are you happy now, General? )
Y’all stay tuned.
