<snip>"AND!!!!! The gravity is about to
off." Dante was cut short as NSD was cut short. "OWWW no you're meant to be going out not in." The only closed cubicle opened up. And NSD swam out of the cubicle using the air friction and his world famous breast stroke to power across the toilets, his trousers still round his ankles, tackle trailing behind him. His tackle wasn't the only thing following him. A giant turd floated after him."Urrgh!" Jayne and Dante cringed in unison.
Maybe Jay should have specified to at least leave the gravity til last.
He had been at a terminal in the drive room floor, disabling the navigation system, he'd alread taken out the deflection sheild system, something that the Blue Dwarf could not safely traverse a wormhole without, and now was in the process of preventing the Mollopods from being able to control the wormholes, when all of a sudden, he found himself floating slowly away from the control panel, out of the hatch and into the air before he'd had a chance to pull the last circuit breaker from the control system. He floated there, pointlessly for a second getting his bearings again after his head drifted inches from the very sharp edge of a very sharp laser-cutter that had floated up out of an unlocked tool box. It took Jay a few seconds to realise that he had actually floated out of the room, and halfway down the corridor, the oxygen regeneration units generating enough wind to create enough momentum to actually blow him along the corridor at quite a considerable velocity in the low-friction environment. He rolled his body swifly to one side as he looked up just in time to see a velociraptor helplessly drifting toward him, as it saw Jay it took a few snaps at him with it's powerful jaws before slowly bobbing out of reach and into the seemingly endless corridor. Jay needed to get back to the drive room, fast. before he floated to the end of the corridor and became that things between-meals snack. Luckily, Jay new who to manouvere in zero-gravity, admittedly he usually did it within the confines of a shuttle, but the principle was he same, all he needed was something to generate momentum in the right direction, something to create thrust. He reached out and grabbed a fire extinguisher from the nearby wall, and holding it away from him, pulled the pin and squeezed the handle, sending a torrent of foam spraying out of the nozzle and blasting him back toward the drive room, the back wall of the ship's control centre came up fast, and unable to control the extinguisher in the same way as the throttle on a shuttles manouvering thrusters Jay found himself unable to slow himself down.
"This..." he thought aloud, "Is going to hurt,....." he hit the back wall with a crash, and nearly, for a second blacked out. He grabbed onto a chair back, at the console just to his left, and shook his head rapidly in a effort to regain his bearings, then pulled himself around the edge of the room, from chairback to chairback until he once more arrived at the navigation console, and completed his earlier attempted task.
"Navigation control systems offline" Holly's voice came, as the entire shipwide navigation system shutdown.
"Dante" said Jay through his comm "thanks for showing me what a hot-air balloon feels like,.....nav's down. All you need to do now is shut down the drive itself, they can't steer this bucket, but they might get lucky with the coordinates...."
<tag dante, apologies for the short post, spare time is very preciosu currently!!>

<Clip>"With respect sir" Dante said "I don't think SHE should be left alone" henodded toward Jayne as he said this."Agreed, take her with you, but, give her a weapon and let her help. Keepyourselves on an open, encrypted comm channel with me" his gaze switched toJayne "This is your chance to prove yourself, don't let me down."Jayne nodded her acknowledgment."Come on" Dante said to her as he led her to a vent in the oppositedirection to the one Jay chose, just as Jay ducked his head in anddisappeared into the blackness of the ducts.<End clip>Who: Dante and JayneWhere: A rather large air ventWhen: During the dinosaur rampageIt had been a good 20 minutes since Dante and Jayne had entered the ducts. Dante was rather to big even for this duct and his body armour still scrapped along the roof of it, and his knees left scratches where he crawled and knelt. He was making quiet some noise and conversation had been nigh on impossible since the journey began."Sod this," Dante came to a stop in front of a vent leading into the corridor below. With a hefty blow with his elbow the grate crashed down to the floor knocking out a mini triceratops."Woops." Dante half smiled as he grabbed the frame with his hands denting the metal and slowly unfolding himself out of the vent like a 17yr old gymnast. He made a soft landing next to the unconscious dino and dusted his hands. A small curtsy style cough echoed from above in the duct and Dante saw Jayne 9ft of the floor in the vent. Remembering that she of course was a lady and a smaller more delicate looking lady at that, Dante offered up both hands and gentle lowered her down. Their eyes met again this time the fire red that flickered across Dante's eyes in moments of madness was not there and Jayne was able to see his ghost silver eyes in all there glory, if only for a few seconds."Right," Dante said breaking eye contact and letting go of the attractive but possible dangerous woman. Dante had forgiven her for what she had done, he did not think that she had been right to tie him up and beat him, but Dante did like a bit of pain and not many people could really hurt him, and this girl did have spunk.Dante was hot and sweaty in all his armour, he had been wearing it in prep for the battle on the planet but with only a few slugs on board at present he decided to lighten the load."Excuse me can you just " Dante did a little turn a round sign with his hand. "Just for a second, cheers." Jayne did so. But she couldn't help having a quick peek just as he bent over to remove his leg protectors. Her eyebrow rose as she turned back to face her front in a very impressed sort of manor."Thanks for that," Dante had sent his armour back to science labs for a service in the internal mail system that was conviently situated next to where they were standing. He was now topless and his many scars shone in the light as he re-holstered all the weapons on himself."Okay, we need to sabotage the drive room, that is our main effort. Now I was thinking that if we go here in engineering first we may find some distractions for the crew guarding the drive room. And some way of at least slowing down the Blue Dwarf maybe keep her in orbit. What do you think?""Sounds like a plan!""Oh yea Jay wants you armed, as you're his kind of sister maybe he wants to protect you or maybe he trusts you either way I don't care because I reckon I could handle you and ." Dante had to pause for a moment to wipe the blood from his mouth again; it had been freshly opened by a piece of debris flung at him by another GELF from the Bloodhound Gang. "As I was saying I could handle you and anything else that comes after you. But I don't want to sound egotistic or anything it's just " A second piece of debris was again flung at Dante, this time opening up a wound above his left eye."Excuse me miss," Dante gritted his teeth and was about to go ape again, his eyes flickered with the internal fire within. "No," Jayne held her hand across Dante's massive chest. "Allow me. I owe them one." Jayne stepped in front of Dante and rolled up her sleeves, she stood for a minute, stretching her neck and arms, gauging the dog Gelfs next move. "Right Fido time to play dead, did I say play, I meant BE!!" The dog turned and darted round the corner Jayne broke into a run and caught up just out of Dante's view, but before she had rounded the corner Dante had taken the opportunity to have a look at the tight view from behind as it jogged down the corridor. "Man, I LOVE tight jeans." He muttered to himself.The smile did not last as Dante began cringing as cries and howls of pain followed what sounded like very hard punches and kicks. Jayne reappeared just after the sound of a dying dog echoed down a rubbish chute towards engine burner 13. "That was fun! Right do you still think you can handle me?""Mmmm," Dante thought about his response for a second, "As cute and as tough as you may be, you'd better take the gun just in case kid." His arm was at half stretch and he offered one of his personalised pistols, "Just don't loose it, Kay?" Jayne took the .50cal pistol, "Bit of a relic isn't it?""That my dear friend is a modified .50 calibre desert eagle; it was one of the most powerful hand pistols in its time and has been looked after by me since I was small. And has kept pace with all the new tech stuff with a few alterations.""Oh ok it will do!""It WILL do," Dante took a moment to calm himself, this girl really new how to flick his switches, he liked it. "Right, what I was think was .."<Later>"Okay, engineering looks clear, I am gonna go in a clear the room. When I say so, you find the terminal and do what I suggested ok? Boots ready." Dante and Jayne both checked their new boots which they had robbed from one of the maintenance bays down the corridor."Good luck," Jayne said as Dante was about to leave."Don't need luck. I got you." Dante tried not to sound corny but he knew he did.Upon entering the control room Dante found no evidence of fighting or any sign of any one still around. "Okay coast is clear." Dante stamped his foot on the floor and his boots made a small thud as if a very large magnetic field had been switched on in the sole. Jayne entered the room also double checking it for slugs or Gelfs; they had not seen any since the encounter with the dog Gelf and Jayne felt slightly uneasy. Dante had his rifle in his shoulder looking over the sight and round the room. Jayne stuffed her borrowed pistol down the back of her tight jeans much to the delight of Dante, and approached a large computer console to the left of the core. "Right I don't have a clue about this so hang on. Mmmm, okay maybe, nope, Mmmm, Urhhh??? Bloody Windows NT 2000!!""NT 2000, I know that system it's easy just " Dante lifted the butt of his rifle and smashed it twice into the console, once into the monitor and then into the control panel itself. "That should fix it, by fix I mean break." Holly appeared at a second screen behind the pair. "What the hell did you do that for?" He whispered "Why is Dante every time you come in here you feel the need to turn off the gravity.""Good it worked then!" Dante stated happily"Well it will in about 58 second's time." Whispered Holly."Holly why are you whispering?" Jayne asked"Another good damn Chrysler! Well Jayne there is 60 slugs and 5 Gelfs on there way here now." The computer replied still whispering."Let me at them! These boots will keep me on the floor while I batter those slugs as they float through the air.""Dante for now, at least, I suggest that we hid in here for a moment.""Okay, but just till the gravity is off." The disgruntled alien had been looking forward to his bit of blood shed, but he followed the pistol that was still between those luscious butt cheeks.The pair heard the aliens arrive in the control room. "Hey look that console is all smashed and stuff!" grunted one of the slugs slime sticking between his lips as he spat every where while he spoke."Jayne, I don't mean to poke a hole in this plan of yours to hid in here but in here is the gent's.""And? I'm not shy.""AND! It sounds like NSD is having an almighty S**T!""AND??!!""AND!!!!! The gravity is about to .go off." Dante was cut short as NSD was cut short. "OWWW no you're meant to be going out not in." The only closed cubicle opened up. And NSD swam out of the cubicle using the air friction and his world famous breast stroke to power across the toilets, his trousers still round his ankles, tackle trailing behind him. His tackle wasn't the only thing following him. A giant turd floated after him."Urrgh!" Jayne and Dante cringed in unison.<Tag, Andy, and everyone the gravity is off so have fun floating and flying round the ship.>
