Jennifer & Ro's Away Mission (Part Three)
Guest Poster: Ro Laren
This Away Mission that Jennifer Baxter and I are on seems to be going from bad to worse. It started simply enough when the two of us did an easy scan in the Aurora shuttlecraft of the Coral Nebula. Then a rip in space opened up, taking us into this other universe. We have been drawn to this warship. Jenny did her usual, coming out with her multi-phase disruptor, but it has no effect because of an energy dampening field. Now a booming voice is telling us that our universe will soon be destroyed.
We wait for the voice to show himself.
"That voice sounds so hammy." complains Jenny, "He's like a movie villain who says "No, Mr Bond, I expect you to die!""
"It might sound hammy to you, Jen" I remark, "But at this moment we ARE in dire straights!"
The two of us look around to see the owner of the voice.
Yuk! Not a pretty sight. He would scare the children away, although I must admit it would make a good halloween costume.
"I am Commander D'Arla." he declares, "I am leader of the Vern Armed Forces in this universe. I am pleased to say that our plans are going well so far."
"And what might that be?" I ask, in the hope that he does what all villains do, and that is tell the good ones what his plans are so that they can be thwarted.
"You may as well know." he continues, "As you cannot do anything about it. Our race have been trying to get a temporary entrance into your universe."
"For what purpose?" Jenny asks.
"To destroy it, of course." D'Arla laughs, as if the answer is obvious, "We send a high powered tri-cobalt megatron bomb through it, then seal the entance. It will destroy all life in a billion lightyear radius. We will then go in and take over. Here is the bomb."
We look over to see it.
"It looks nasty, Ro." whispers Jenny, "We've got to stop it from happening!"
"Take them away!" D'Arla orders to a couple of his minions, "Time for the countdown to commence!"
To be continued after the TWQ...
