Jay, catching on quickly, said "I agree. Since we don't know what is on the surface, it could possibly be a pleasure world. This is just a training mission after all, so nothing bad could be down there."The simulant commander soaked all this up
"YOU HAVE YOUR ORDERS" it replied "IF YOU DONT GIVE ME A PILOT AND A SHUTTLE YOU WILL BE INCARCERATED MR CHRYSLER"
"yes sir..." Jay said, venom in his voice.
One Hour later.
The Starbug, piloted by Rio Lomaz landed on the planet. She glanced out of the plexi-glass screen and took in what she saw, whistling. "Hospitable..." she said, her voice dripping with sarcasm. The planet was a desolate wasteland, lightning forked to the ground everywhere she looked, a few small buildings were scattered here and there.
"STAY IN THE SHUTTLE" said the simulant commander, "WE WONT BE LONG, ANYTHING YOU SEE OUTSIDE YOU KEEP TO YOURSELF, DO NOT DISCUSS WITH ANYONE NOT CURRENTLY ABOARD THIS SHUTTLE"
Rio nodded, she didn't know what the big secret was, but shrugged her shoulders and as the simulants left kicked back with a copy of 'Heat' magazine.
She was reading an articla about how an American songstress had been seen in public with a new pair of shoes when her reading was disturbed by the radio cutting in. "LOMAZ!" came the voice of one of the simulants. "GET OUT OF HERE, DO NOT COME BACK FOR US, REPEAT DO NOT COME BACK FOR..AIIiiiiiee!!!"
Lomaz dropped her magazine, and ran to the control panel. "HELLO?!" she shouted into the comm, "Come in landing party, please respond!"
There was no reply.
A noise was heard outside the ship, no...lots of noises.
She whirled around to face the view-screen, outside she could see the sillohuettes of hundreds of figures surrounding the ship.
And they were scraping, clawing to get in.
She caught sight of the face of one of them, and stood in shock.
The face was the last one she had expected to see.
She reached for the take off thrusters throttle control. A loud whine filled the ship then an even louder wrenching noise, the engines went dead, her attackers had sabotaged the shuttle.
She leapet back to the control station, and grabbed the mike, "LOMAZ TO DWARF RESPOND!! PLEASE RESPOND!!!"
"Chrysler here...whats up Rio?"
"The simulants are dead...all of them.."
"What?! Get back up here..now"
"I..I cant....they've sabotaged my starbug! I'm trapped inside JAY YOUVE GOT TO HELP ME!! PLEASE!!!"
Jay had never seen Rio so scared, she was tough, but she was absolutley terrified of something"
"Rio..stay where you are, I'm coming down with a rescue party" he cutt off the comm, "Phil, find some people and come with me, we've got a pilot to rescue"
