    [O - E01] New Recruits

    Location: E01 - Donwarr Tags: None Log of Jebediah O'Reilly, Entry #030: Octan Special Forces division received a new batch of recruits yesterday. It's time for my favorite part of the orientation process; weeding out those who just don't have what it takes. Today I'm leading them on a hike across Donwarr; we have to survive 48 hours with minimal supplies. We have machetes, a small supply of food, bedrolls, hand pistols, and stock binoculars. I've done this exercise a thousand times; I won't interfere with the newbies unless one of them is about to get himself killed. A death in a training exercise is a LOT of paperwork to fill out. End Log C&C welcome.

    [O - E02] Moving On

    Location: E02 Jurin II Tags: Science, Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // Given the state of war that exists between Octan and the other corporations, all personnel have been instructed to be much more aware of security. Our delightful CEO pombe had requested that Dr. Allison and I investigate a Mantis lab on Jurin II. I became a bit concerned for how volatile things were when he not only insisted that ED-208 escort us, but Sue didn't even object. Perhaps she is still just in mourning after the profound loss of our friend. I always felt like Normal Guy was a good guy, a great employee, and just a really easily relatable fellow. I can't even imagine how his girlfriend Eshey must be doing. But sadly, in times of war, work must keep going. So ED-208 selected his weaponry to keep us safe and we proceeded to the Octan Heavy Cruiser OCS Belle Homme, recently renamed in honor of our departed colleague. Not knowing the strength or position of Mantis forces on Jurin II, ED-208 had acquired an armed scout car for us. We were glad to have both the speed and weaponry on our trip through enemy territory. ED-208 seemed to really enjoy being back in a gunner's seat and both Dr. Allison and I felt far more comfortable with him along. I think Dr. Allison was extra nervous because she seemed to want to hang onto me during the trip, given how new she is to field work and just in general I think that she was looking for reassurance. Upon our arrival at the lab we began our work. Dr. Allison got down to analysis while I began inspecting the various machinery. ED-208 was on high alert for any Mantis forces that might have returned or in case it was a trap. It looked like the lab hadn't seen any activity in a week or two, but it was still active. It was, in typical Mantis fashion, heavily fortified and quite militaristic in nature. They seemed to be doing some research on liquids, but we weren't quite sure why. It eventually became clear that they were pulling in some of the abundant water from the planet to combine it with locally sourced Awesomnium. They seemed to be attempting to develop a beverage for their forces that would imbue the drinker with benefits from the Awesomnium while also hydrating them. We were able to find some data in various computer logs that showed they hadn't been very successful. Dissolving the Awesomnium in the water had proven difficult and they mostly ended up with very gritty water that tasted terrible and instead of the Awesomnium being absorbed it simply wound up getting peed out. We collected all the data we could and proceeded back to the Belle Homme to prepare our report. I did notice that ED-208 vented some of his frustration at the loss of Normal Guy upon the machinery before we left. Such a tragic loss is hitting all of us hard. RIP Normal Guy This diary entry is in honor of our beloved comrade. Extra Pics:

WHY COULDN’T YOU HAVE SAVED YOURSELF INSTEAD OF ESHEY!?!?! <sob> All you ever wanted was a Honey! <sob> And Eshey wouldn’t even be that for you!!! <sob> You're giving up Mr. Poon Poon, Hombre? <sob> He was your favorite. Thanks, Hombre, Normal Guy would have liked that. <sob> Yes, he was a knockoff. We all knew he was a knockoff. <sob> But he was our knockoff! HE WAS MY KNOCKOFF!!! <sob> YOU COULD HAVE BEEN CEO ONE DAY!!! <sob> THE GALAXY WILL NEVER KNOW ANOTHER STAR AS BRIGHT AS YOU!!! Everyone, please lend me your voices, as we sing Normal Guy’s favorite song…the one he would always sing when he thought of his Honey. <sob> Bagpipes, please. Close your eyes, make a wish And blow out the candlelight For tonight is just your night We're gonna celebrate, All through the night Pour the wine, light the fire Girl your wish is my command I submit to your demands I will do anything, Girl you need only ask I'll make love to you Like you want me to And I'll hold you tight Baby all through the night I'll make love to you When you want me to And I will not let go Till you tell me to +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Meanwhile, on Mynderis… Sorry to interrupt your vacation, sir. No worries, Scooter. What’s so urgent? It’s a message from the chief accountant. What did she want? She said we didn’t finish the job when she asked us to take care of your brother. What? We totally took care of him. Yes. I explained that to her, but she said that he didn’t kick the bucket. She was quite upset. Well then, I guess our job is unfinished. Get everyone together. It’s time we took care of my brother and this time, we’ll make sure he kicks the bucket. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Later, aboard the Shaft… <sob> Normal Guy… <sob> Sir…Normal Guy’s parents have arrived.

We launched it out into space. It’s space maritime tradition. Oh dear! Oh dear! Oh dear! I’m sorry! I’m sorry! <sob> It’s all my fault. If I hadn’t have hired Eshey, he wouldn’t have needed to save her! <sob> But that’s just it! If a LEGO knockoff figure dies heroically in the service of official LEGO products, he or she becomes reincarnated as an official LEGO minifigure. You’ve just thrown our son into space by himself! NORMAL GUY!!! I’M COMING TO SAVE YOU!!! How come you can both speak normally and don’t have that klik thing with the unusually capitalized letters? Oh, that was just a verbal tick our son had. It’s not a general thing with us knockoff figures. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ On Jurin II… Mr. Poon Poon? NORMAL GUY!!! Son! Yes…I was once called Normal Guy. But now…I have become Beautiful Man. Homina homina…yes…you are beautiful! And your verbal tick is gone. Look…if Eshey doesn’t want you… No, sorry, Sue. Eshey will always be my Honey. Wait, what? Mother? Father? We’re here, son! And we’re so proud of you! BEAUTIFUL MAN!!! I’M SO SORRY!!! Please, forgive me and come back to us! Sir, there is nothing to forgive. It’s you who has given me opportunities. And now I’m an official LEGO product! May I return to work, sir? Yes, Beautiful Man. Yes. Welcome home. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!!!

    [O - E02] Scavenger Scum

    Location: E02 - Jurin II Tags: Spying, Vehicle, Land Vehicle, Spaceship (I know last time I built spaceship wreckage I didn't get the tag, but this one is more substantial and plays a larger role in the story, so I think it should count. ) Log of Jebediah O'Reilly, Entry #029: One of our sleeper agents within MANTIS contacted us to say he had retrieved a data chip containing the identity of MANTIS agents within Octan. How ironic. Unfortunately, MANTIS must have known his true mission as they shot down his ship just as he was preparing to jump into the GATE above Jurin II. My mission is to find the wreckage and retrieve the agent and chip if possible. ...and it looks like one of those things won't be coming back. The ship is pretty burnt out. They must have hit it with a MANTIS Death Ray Blaster™. It's unlikely the chip survived but it never hurts to check. Geez. The rats work fast. Picked 'em clean. Hey, is that...? I can't believe this survived the crash. At least he got his priorities straight. This chip is worth far more than his life. Ok.. that sounded a bit harsh. I could have worded that better. Whatever. Nobody listens to these recordings anyway. I'm the only one with enough security clearance. Well, Maybe President Business too. Anyways. Better get out of here before some of their scouts come to check out the wreckage. I've seen enough death for today. I'm supposed to play the bagpipes at Normal Guy's funeral too. I still can't believe he's dead. Pombe must be devastated. End Log C&C welcome.

  9. Hey All, Ok I'm working on something and I want to keep it true to the Lego Universe/Brand with all the electronics being made by a Lego Corp like Octan. But then it hit me. I can't think of any other fictional brands Lego uses for their in universe things other than Octan. So I wanted to ask around see if I'm forgetting any fictional brands from the Lego worlds. Any ideas? I'm really at a loss.

    [O - TECH] Awesomnium Foundry

    Dr. Harris takes Jebediah O'Reilly on a tour of the recently completed Awesomenium Foundry on Farmolis. Not the greatest physical build, but I'm a bit pressed for time. It gets the job done. EDIT: There's an extra 'E' in 'Awesomenium.' If a mod could fix that that would be awesome.

    [O - H03] 49X RayWing Deployed

    Location: H03 Tags: Spaceship, Vehicle Always a pleasure seeing a prototype come through! So you're the lucky lady that gets to drive the 49X, are you? Yes, ma'm, I believe I am! A snazzy design! Ain't those lines neat! Could use a color swap though, from that awful shade of blue to maybe a violet purple or somethin'... There will be NO color-scheme changes! And no aerodynamical changes! And no changes of any kind! Agent Crow! Excuse me - Mrs. Galash, this is Agent Crow, the 49X's... designer. You designed this? Ah... What a beauty! And do you know that color is growing on me as I speak! Really quite lovely! Humph! Well, what are you waiting for? Nothin' at all! Ha! Looks like my ol' hook is a bit too big for the ol' cockpit to handle! You didn't have the hook in your picture... is it that recent? Oh no! That picture was taken years and years ago! I've had the hook for ages already Huh. That's funny; you look every bit as old in the picture as you do now! Agent Crow! Wonder what this here button does? *fzzz* Daaagh! Might want to wait until you're out of the hangar before you start randomly pushing buttons, Mrs. Galash. What's that you say? My ears just ain't what they used to be! Oh I declare! If it ain't another button! Wait! Not that one! Grrrr! Agent Crow! This is just fantastic! Laser blasters! Is there one on the other side? Noooo! That is - yes! But don't shoot it! No! Ah-ha! I guess there is! Clear runway! I repeat, clear runway! Where'd everybody go? *bzzcrrkle* Mrs. Galash? This is First Branch Executive John Hannibal. Please report for duty at the nearest station. You'll be meeting your partner there. Hannibal, out. To be continued! A few shots of the 49X RayWing: One of my favs of all the spaceships I built so far! C&C welcome!

    [O-H03] OFI-204b Eagle IV

    Location: H03 - Kaalin Tags: Spaceship, Military, Vehicle --Weekly Explorer's Transmission-- --Log of Eagle-Eye Silver-- --24 Janurali 3816-- Given the recent breakdown in relations between the other two corporations, Octan Corp. has begun preparing for armed conflict. The OFI-204b Eagle IV I’ve been provided with is a mature design built by the mostly automated Octan Corp. factories. Even though it’s the natural evolution of the “200 Series” (starting with the now retired OFI-200 SuperHawk), the Eagle remains a state-of-the-art interceptor featuring some of the best of Octan Corp.’s engineering. My b-model comes equipped with 2 super high-cycle rate, long-range laser cannons as the main armament. These guns and their supporting hardware generate so much heat that each of their dedicated nacelles are crammed with not just the weapons but also very large heat exchangers to aid the liquid-cooled mechanisms. On the wingtips are secondary repeating cannons that the engineers tell me are for better for dogfights, which is interesting since the Eagle IV is optimized for the interceptor role… and therefore turns like one of those 20th century Mack trucks in the Octan museum! Oh well, if enemy fighters get behind me, I’ll just put on the jets—literally. The engines on this ship are crazy. I should be able outrun pretty much any standard ship in any of the three fleets with this thing! --End-- So, I had intended this to be an entry for Novvember, but it stayed at about 80% complete until this afternoon. Hopefully I'll crank some more AG stuff out soon! More on Flickr. C&C appreciated!

    [O - H03] - Manual Labor

    Location: H03 Kaalin Tags: Science, Land Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // After some serious scientific inquiry into the new fuel/Awesomenium mixture developed by Dr. Allison we decided to take the results and head back to the tanker OCS LT1021 (Large Tanker 1021) for some further analysis and refinement. Luckily we were stationed above an Awesomnium rich planet, so we had a plentiful supply of the stuff. Upon our arrival after I got used to the smell of the fuel, Dr. Allison requested that I use one of the nearby carts to retrieve a healthy amount of Awesomenium for us to work with. Usually I would have delegated that task to ED-208 but Dr. Allison had seen fit to schedule him for a thorough cleaning which he was happy to accept. I couldn't believe I had to do manual labor instead of having a robot do the work, but I didn't want to appear to be a complainer in front of a junior scientist. Dr. Allison was very excited to show me the various controls and the entire infusion process. It wasn't that exciting for me but I managed to pretend to be interested. I know that CEO pombe will want us to make this fuel a success as it has a lot of practical uses. He said once we get this sorted out that there is a body oil he hopes we can also infuse with Awesomnium. And some sort of personal lubricant he said Sue was VERY interested in. Extra Pics:

    Location: H03 - Kaalin Tags: Spaceship Dramatis Personae: Previously: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=118483 Currently, on approach to Kaalin.... I appreciate you referring your psychologist to me, Bruce. I think I've been needing to see a therapist for some time. Of course, Ms. Kolai! I am always happy to help a colleague in need. The doctor is the reason I am who I am today! In fact, I'll buy you a drink to celebrate this occasion! That...that's okay. I don't really drink. The last time I did, I passed out during a meeting and woke up in an engineering bay hours later. But I appreciate the thought. Wait, what was that about the doctor and who you are today? Another time, perhaps! Uh.... There she is, the Merchant Confederate medical cruiser, Seraphim! It was convenient that both our fleets were located at Kaalin. That way, I could go see the doctor while Pombe and Hombre went down to the surface for some apparent man to man talk (\http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=119854). Serendipitous, even! Let me buy you a drink to celebrate serendipity! Oh, um, we've arrived! I have to get to my transport shuttle! Bye! Thanks again! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Later, aboard the Seraphim.... FOR THE LAST TIME, I DO NOT TOUCH MYSELF WHEN THINKING ABOUT MY BOSS!!! Uh huh. Patient exhibits classic denial when asked about her boss. Let's switch topics. Did you see your father naked when you were a child? What does that have to do with anything?!?! I take that as a "yes". WHAT?!?! HOW IS THAT A "YES"?!?! You didn't say "no". Eshey, do you harbor feelings of jealousy against your mother? What? No! Of course not! Mm hmm. Patient saw her father naked as a child and exhibits hostile feelings of jealousy against her mother. NO NO NO!!! And...what are you supposed to be?! I'm the doc's assistant! Sadly, Eshey, the time for this session has run out. But before you depart, let's sing that song I taught you at the beginning. WHAT? NO! Then unfortunately, I'm going to have to recommend that you go on medical leave until you are deemed mentally capable of fulfilling the requirements of your position. I feel better, so much better! Thank you, Doc, for taking all the ouchies away! I didn't feel so good till you fixed me like I knew that you would! And I feel better, so much better now! There, do you feel better now?

But who are you to be able to bypass Long when it comes to funding my work?" “My name is unimportant.

"...Some might say uncomfortably so...." "Sorry, what was that?" "I was asking why you wanted to see me sir?" "Ah yes, I wished of course, to discuss the super-secret awesomnium survey and production schedules for the next quarter. But first, do you have any issues you would like to raise?" "A couple of points if you don't mind. Firstly the change of the traffic light order from red, orange, green to orange, green red. Are we absolutely sure that was wise? There has been a 349.2% increase in traffic incidents over the past month." "Are you really suggesting that adjusting the traffic lights to the corporate colour scheme was a bad idea? It will ensure all employees truly understand and live the Octan brand!" "...or die in a hovertruck crash....Secondly, there appear to be a number of MANTIS droids and vehicles roaming the town?" "Yes, I put a street cleaning contract out to tender as, until the science boys get the gene-tailoring on the trees correct so they bloom corporate instead of yellow, pink and green, I won't have their blossom dirtying my streets. MANTIS undercut all other bidders by 20% and their JanDroid model cleaning units are most impressive. They even agreed to begin painting them Octan colours as of next month."

    [O - H03] - An Altered Reflection

    Location: H03 Kaalin Tags: Science, Land Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Dr. Long and even more intrigued when she said that she needed me to personally oversee something for her. One of our more junior scientists had come up with a new Awesomnium enhanced biomass formulation that required testing. Our illustrious CEO pombe had set up a facility on Kaalin to give the new mix a proper workout and he sent ED-208 with me over the protests of his compatriot Sue. I guess she felt he still had "more servicing" to be done, which is bizarre because he just had a thorough Octan-brand Robotic Assistant Maintenance because she had previously said he needed "attention". When I arrived on Kaalin I was a bit surprised that there wasn't a scientific outpost waiting for me, but an Octan Racing Team test facility. One of their heavy rally trucks was the test bed for the new fuel mixture. The pit crew had been getting the truck ready for me. Luckily I had some experience with race trucks! As I was preparing to take the truck out for a test drive the scientist who discovered the formulation showed up. Her name was Allison and she seemed very excited to be in the field testing. She also seemed very excited in general. I wasn't entirely surprised that she had heard of me and told me how happy she was to be working with me and that maybe if this went well we could do more work together. She seems a bit clingy, but when I mentioned that to ED-208 he said I should ask Dr. Long if she has any experience with a situation like that. Which was a great idea, I'll definitely have to try and set up a dinner for us to discuss it over! Extra Pics:

Koro, a special consultant who works for Kawashita Octan has a delayed order and he is not happy about it! Looks like the consummate professional Ms. Melynchuk will have to quickly look up the ETA and report it to him in order to promote the excellent customer service one can expect in an Kawashita Octan commissary. Even Tim, the youngest crewman robot onboard this particular ship, is helping out by making a call to the cargo deck to check if Koro's item has been misplaced. Let's hope not, since Koro likes to order only the best exploding death devices, available now at all participating Kawashita Octan outlets! But what's this? Another consultant is trying to get on the public QE (that's Quantum Entanglement, boys and girls! only the best tech for Kawashita Octan!) communication station to make a call, but there's a marine in his way! Well, I'm sorry but our flight crew gets first priority, Mr. Beltar O'Reilly, and you'll just have to wait your turn! Who are you trying to call anyway! Over here in the corridor, a dapper Kawashita Octan executive confidently walks the halls of the ship. Where others might find the constant presence of armed marines intimidating, Mr. Tanaka Pombe is happy to see them and knows he is safe under their benevolent watch. Look how friendly they are! Jackbooted thugs? Not on an Kawashita Octan ship! Our marines know that good relations and good etiquette keep a crew happy and less likely to succumb to the Space Madness. Extra photos in spoiler: Thanks for looking, hope you enjoyed this build as much as I did! Comments and criticism welcome.
  24. Location: F09 - Arium Minor Tags: Spaceshsip Henry Moose Personal Log: Today I got to flight test our corporation's newest toy; the Hornet Class Gunship. On first inspection I couldn't help but shake the feeling that I'd seen her somewhere before, as if in a dream! The two giant particle cannons aren't exactly subtle, but should make even MANTIS fighter jocks think twice about tangling with us! The cockpit is reasonably spacious, though the field of view isn't great. Despite the lack of subtlety, she looks sleek. The technicians assure me that whilst the drive looks like a pair of re-purposed trash cans, they are in fact a precision engineered pulse-fusion thrust chambers... and it just so happens that the most efficient geometry is identical to that of a universal standard waste disposal cylinder. She flies reasonably well, though is far better suited to space than atmo. Four repulsors provide VTOL capability and the landing gear is semi-retractable, the nose gear even pivots forward to act as the targeting dish array! Still, this is much cooler than the survey ships I have been flying for Octan thus far; I almost feel like a MANTIS Badass when flying her! OOC Stuff:
