[M - E02] The Jarring Jungles of Jurin II

Recommended Posts

Activity - Exploration.

Location - Jurin II - E02

Previously, Mark of Orion had survived a deadly ambush on Guinevere. Now, he and his team were on the other side of the galaxy, exploring the heavily vegetatious planet of Jurin II.

"Look at all the flora and fauna! Too bad Malcolm couldn't see all this!" Bert strolled around, happily gazing at all the new species before his eyes.

"Malcolm didn't seem to be the type who was interested in plants - he was easily bored with his surroundings, if I recall." Mark scoffed and pushed a branch out of his face.

Bert tromped through some thick ground cover. "Yeah, whatever happened to him, anyway? He sure was a jerk."

"He got vaporized by a nano-beam of a Kawashita special forces agent."

"Oh, that's... too bad. I assume you just ran for it?"

"No, I turned to fight all three of 'em."

"WOW, what happened?!"

"It was all a bit of a blur. I don't remember." Mark said coldly, turning away.

Bert decided he'd better stop asking questions, and looked back at his scanner. "Captain Brutus, I'm getting some strange readings - some kind of insectoid life form in this tree!"

"There's lots of beetles and bugs around here. Nothing to worry about." The captain gruffly growled.

Just then, a Massive Malicious Munchmoid leaped on the terrified captain, disproving his statement. THIS bug was something to worry about! The entire crew immediately panicked at the sight of the grotesque creature dropping from the trees.

The Munchmoid landed squarely on the captain, who screamed loudly, muffled underneath the bug's weight. Lew, who was standing next to Mark of Orion, attempted to disarm the bug with his phaser, but was too frightened to aim properly and the shot went wide.

Mark of Orion, however, knew he must act quickly, and in one step, set his MANTIS™ death ray blaster© against the creature's forehead.

Mark's death ray blaster sang its song, and the Munchmoid went flying backwards from the sheer force of the glowing blast.

Captain Brutus leapt back from the scene of his near demise. "GAAAHH! It almost got me! I can't feel my arm!"

"That would be my blaster, sir. The ray must have clipped your arm." Mark jumped in between him and the still form of the Munchmoid.

"Then why isn't it GONE?! And the beastly bug too?!"

"I took the liberty of adding a stun setting to my MANTIS™ death ray blaster©. I assume you will approve, considering you still have your arm?"

"Ah, yes, yes, that's fine, Orion, thank you." The captain pointed at the Munchmoid. "Now VAPORIZE this thing!"

"Wait, sir. It's completely stunned and won't move for days. Why don't we drag it back to the dropship and use it for research?" Mark suggested with a grin.

"Are you KIDDING me?!"

Mark's grin continued. Apparently, he wasn't.

"Ugh. All right. YOU get to drag it back, then." The captain rolled his one eye.

And with that, the slightly shaken and jittery crew headed back to their ship.

...To Be Continued!

Well, I was completely swamped with school this weekend, but I still wanted to get a little build in for AG. :wink: Hopefully I'll have more time in the next few weeks to do something even bigger and better. Here's a final overview shot:

Holy moly that is a lot of foliage! Love your stories, they have such a Spaceman Spiff quality. Great parts usage on the blaster's bolts.

Wow, amazing foliage! :wub: Where's the bug from? I love the MANTIS™ death ray blaster©'s ludicrous blast size, even when set to stun :grin:

Excellent job on the foliage Mark, very amusing story too! I can't say I'm sorry not to be one of Mark's crew though, it seems like a pretty dangerous position to be in! :laugh:

You're making good use of those new plant/vine things :thumbup: Very clever usage of the bionicle thingy as a nasty critter too :classic:

Love the dense foliage here! The dark green "path" looks very realistic given that it isn't really a path. Of course, the MANTIS™ death ray blaster© shot is just so cool.

Great build Mark!
