BaltiCoke is on fire

"Captain! We've got new orders!"
Jay nodded.
"The BaltiCoke factory on Madras VII is under attack by some sort of alien
creatures, we're the closest ship."
"Lets get there as soon as possible and prepare a team." Said Jay.
<end snip>
Who: Justin, Efof, Jayne and anyone else
Where: The BaltiCoke factory on Madras VII
When: A few hours later
Justin stood in front of a burning factory.
"Nooooooo!" He shouted. "Not BaltiCoke! Why did you have to go and attack
BaltiCoke? It's my favourite flavour of coke!"
The scene was madness. They had flown their shuttle down into what seemed to be
a warzone. Factory workers were running out of the towering inferno, and some of
the local security officers were shooting their weapons towards some unknown
"What's going on?" Asked Efof.
"Dunno. Just shoot!" Shouted Justin, pointing at some aliens which were coming
straight towards them.
Efof folded his arms and put his weapon down. "I've seen Star Trek. Not all
aliens are mindless monsters." He paused. "I'm an alien! I'm not a mindless
"Well, you're not a monster." Justin said.
"We come in peace!" Shouted Efof, putting his hands up to the monsters. "Nice to
meet you..."
The alien resembled a giant hippopotamus, which belched acid all over some of
the BaltiCoke workers to Efof's left. They screamed in agony as the meat fell
from their bones and their skeletons wobbled then fell over.
"I don't think negotiating will help." Said Justin. He pointed his Bazukoid at
the giant alien hippo's mouth and fired. There was an explosion, some of the
hippo's teeth and a tongue fell out. But it continued to stomp towards them.
"Run away!" Said Justin, and Efof followed him.
They regrouped with the others from the Blue Dwarf back at the Starbug. "This is
a lost cause." Said Justin. "The factory is already being burned down. These
alien hippos are too hard to kill."
They all looked between each other. "So what are the orders?"
"No idea." Said Jayne.
"What?" Asked Justin. "Who's in charge?"
"Well since Chris Harris died... no-one." Said Jayne.
Justin slapped his forehead. "Oh god we're going to die."
The Starbug next to them started to rock, then was rolled over. The landing
struts snapped and the bulbous spaceship rolled into a bomb crater. A ginormous
alien hippopotamus stomped on it and crushed it into a series of green disks.
"Oh smeg, how are we going to get back to the ship now?" Justin asked.
Jayne pointed to a spaceship on top of the burning BaltiCoke factory. "Efof
could you fly that?"
"I can fly anything!" He boasted. "Well... as long as it has some sort of
thrusting capacity. And a steering wheel. And a sensible way to turn the engine
on. And a sublight drive engine. And a comfy seat to sit in...."
"But how do we get on top of the factory?" Justin asked. "It's on fire!"
<Tag so how do we get on top of a burning factory? I imagine that it's not
totally damaged and the structure is intact, but is mostly on fire, could we go
inside or maybe find a ladder on the outside? >
