[SCENE: Still in the F’book Nexus. Lord Darth Venomous is still on a rampage – only now, instead of bodies being dropped via Force-choke, only heads & various limbs are falling, the result of being severed by a whirling dervish of a purple lightsaber.
The blazing blade has come to rest mere inches from the last surviving soul in the vicinity – a Klingon who, ironically, bears a striking resemblence to former shipyardmaster Commander K’tinghe.
A fact that is not lost on His Rudeness.]
VENOMOUS (pointing blade at K’tinghe): I should’ve known you were involved in this, you vile p’tahk! How many limbs do you want to lose before I take your head?!?!?!
K’TINGHE (terrified): M’lord…please…please, m’lord, I—
VENOMOUS: YOU ARE GOING TO FIX MY SHIP SUCH THAT IT DOES NOT BREAK AGAIN, OR I WILL LAY WASTE TO THIS ENVIRONMENT AND YOU AND YOUR ENTIRE HOUSE WITH IT, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?!?!?!?!
K’TINGHE (terrified): (ulp!) Uh, I—
VENOMOUS: Nexus!!! Transport me, this Klingon bastard, and the best ship’s computer system you have back to Pegasus!!! DO IT NOW!!!!!
[A bright light appears and expands to engulf both His Rudeness and K’Tinghe. As it fills the screen, we cut to…
SCENE: The bridge of Pegasus Lieutenant Commander Ozymandias McCool is briefing General Korrioth on repairs to the ship.]
OZY McCOOL: Not the best news, General. Probably another week or so to bring the main core online. Has anyone notified the Admiral yet?
[At that precise moment, the bridge doors part, and in walks Venomous, with K'Tinghe in tow.]
VENOMOUS: Ozy, I believe you’ll find the answer to all our difficulties in the main cargo bay.
[Ozy & Korrioth gape wide-eyed at the Klingon, who had previously been thought to have suffered Venomous' purple blade. Korrioth, as usual, regains his composure first.]
KORRIOTH (nodding): Very well, Admiral. Come along, Ozy. [They proceed out.]
VENOMOUS (grabbing K’Tinghe by his familial sash): Now, you effin’ coward, we’re gonna go help them – and then you get to beg for your life again like you did last time…!!! [He drags the frightened Klingon off the bridge towards Engineering.]
Okay, guys, the Big Box is back up and running – a 3.6 non-name-brand system board running Ubuntu 10.04.4 64-bit (and the requisite Win7 virtual machine for employing Outlook) with 16 gigs of RAM (and a brand new 2TB drive) out of Mrs. Venomous’ old Acer case. (The old Big Box and its eight gigs have been redeployed as the work machine.)
We’ll see how long this lasts. It had better (casts a menacing look towards K’Tinghe)…
