The JMC Green Dwarf
Edge of the Solar System
The Captain of the Green Dwarf sat edgily in his office. They had
been out of spacedock less than a week and already he was anxious
about the job, it was a deep space exploration mission and he was
"Maybe its time for a change" he said, getting up off the chair,
ready to ring JMC command when there was a knock at his door. The
door opened and three officers walked in. He smiled, and urged them
to sit but they remained stood, all with arms folded. Stern looks
on their faces.
"Captain . We're not happy with your command." Started one.
"We don't feel you're dedicated enough for this crew." Said another.
"And your command decisions are terrible!" said the other.
The Captain looked shocked. "But we've only been on this mission a
day, and you've come up with these decisions already?"
"Well, yes!" Said his first officer. "Your first decision was to
take the ship dangerously close to the first gaseous anomaly you
"That's our mission explore space artefacts . Including dangerous
gaseous anomalies "
"Yes but sir, that was the SUN!"
"Ah yes "
"Listen sir, this isn't going to work. The crew have absolutely no
respect for you because you have no respect for them."
"In fact we all can't stand you." Said the chief engineer.
"And look at this report you wrote " said his head of security. "The
spelling is atrocious!"
"Well I don't know what to say " said the Captain of the Green Dwarf.
"Don't say anything." Said the security chief, pulling a laser
pistol on him. "This is a mutiny, you're going to the brig!"
Suddenly, the lights dimmed and an alert siren sounded. "Whats
that?!" asked the Captain.
"It's the red alert siren you fool!"
They all rushed into the Drive room.
"There's three massive ships just been detected!" Said the sensor
They looked out of the window, to see the ships heading straight for
"What do we do, what do we do?! Panic, Panic!" Yelled the Captain
running around like a fool.
The first officer sighed and shot him in the back on low stun
setting. He fell to the floor in pain.
"Are they a known species?" Asked the first officer.
"No they're like no design on record. They almost look like giant
insects. Hold on sir, the ships are going straight past us" said the
sensor operator. "It looks like we're not much of a threat!"
"Where are they heading?" Asked the first officer.
The Captain got up off the floor. "Earth? Earth! We must stop
them!" he said. "Fire all weapons!!!"
The sensor operator looked at him blankly. "Are you sure?"
"No don't!" Said the first officer. But it was too late, the
slightly insane Captain pressed down hard on the firing controls. A
measly pulse of energy emerged from the Green Dwarf's laser turret
and struck the last massive ship on the back as it went past, doing
"Fool!" Shouted the First officer to the Captain, and shot him
again. Again he stumbled to the floor.
The large ships firstly seemed not to notice, then a large swarm of
ships started to spew out of the large one. Like a plague of
insects, the ships surrounded the Green Dwarf, pelting it with
weapon shots of corrosive thick matter. The hull plating started to
burn away and crack.
The Green Dwarf gradually melted, until the engine drive plates
corroded from the gooey acidic matter, causing the ship to explode
in a violent blast.
The Green Dwarf was no more. The Hymenoptera ships continued heading
