  1. I plan on using my version of set 76108 for an Monster Fighters -flavored take on a mad scientist trying to open a time doorway into the beginning of the universe. What he doesn't know is that creatures from before our universe began (I'm going to use Minecraft figures for these guys, as seen below.) were destroyed at that moment, so they will come through the doorway to the mid-1920's as a way of sheltering themselves from that fate. Unfortunately, being from that time frame, of course they want to end our Universe so they can live again in peace. As this takes place in my Adventure-verse, Johnny Thunder is tasked with shutting down the doorway before our universe sinks back to before the big bang... and Sam Sinister is trying to use the time / space doorway to achieve vast riches by robbing ancient cultures of their valuables using the Time Window. Doctor Who may show up to help Johnny get things right and set Sinister back a peg or two.... I'm just not sure at this point if he (she?) will be involved or not, as the Time Lord is from a alternate timeline to this Universe. The picture seen above features a un-printed round window in place of this printed one that I bought. That special piece is the time window in it's "off" form. The model's main color has also been shifted from medium nougat to yellow and all exploding walls and drop-floors have been removed. The means from getting from one floor to another is a spiral staircase, and a small skylight has been added to the roof. The rear of the building has a ground-floor conservatory. The rearmost window opens up 90 degrees to allow for figure placement. The inside feature the following: The lower floor has a fireplace with clock on mantle, table with a pizza, and lamp on a side table. The middle floor features a marble bust on a safe, and a bed. The thing in the greenish jar is a beating heart. The upper floor features a desk with generator, several flasks, two bookcases, time portal computer and microscope. The green car is a extremely modified Duesenberg SSJ model originally made by @tomnetherton1 (see it here on Flickr. ) I used the car Speed Champions wheel-wells, and gave it to the Mad Scientist as his personal vehicle. Here you can see the rear of the car with the spare tire and license plate. The models fits one figure in the drivers seat under the easily removable roof. In the time before time, when all was dark and the Universe we live in was not yet started, the empty space had a name: the Endless Nether. This mysterious space even had it's denizens, strange skeletal beings made of a black unknown metal-like substance, called the Negatives. They lived at what would later become the center of the Universe, the point of origin of the Big Bang and our Universe. These beings and the Endless Nether were destroyed in that hyper-massive explosion, which was known to be coming for some time. (Think of it as a prologue to a story: every "before" leads to and "after".) The Negatives knew of their eventual demise, and tried everything to escape it, but could not escape from their side of the explosion... until a scientist happened upon the Endless Nether in a test of his time window, leading to events that could end the Big Bang before it even started... This Hugo Strange figure is the basis for the Mad Scientist, who will sport a Metalbeard head and a Doctor Strange hairpiece when built. I think I'll call him Dr. Harold Goldfield... but I'm not sure. Got any good (or should I say bad?) name suggestions for this guy? Please leave me any ideas, comments, questions or complaints about this model or the figures below! EDIT 3/16/18: Added updated pictures to this post.
  2. A little southwest of Camp Isaac, at the bank of a small creek right within the jungle, elevated upon four logs stands a small cabin. This cabin is owned by Felicia Sandalo (a scientist and explorer sponsored by Román Fontonajo), as a starting point for all her scientific adventures to explore the wonders of Cascadia. And Cascadia had many of these, with her most recent favourite, the yellow wide-mouthed frog. Only some more observations, and she was ready to share her insight with the members of the Royal Society that currently resided in Camp Isaac. Unfortunately she had not yet had the chance to observe any of the large carnivorous wild cats, which were rumoured to wander the jungles of Cascadia, and were possibly also responsible for the cultural decay of the recently discovered Myzectlan. Little did she know that she was in fact the one being observed right now...
  3. [O - F10] What lies beneath (redux)

    Location: F10 - Arium Major Tags: Civil, building Note: this build takes place immediately following The Varieties of Scientific Experience Alright Doctor Igorvich, what's the plan for getting my memories back? There's a grinding of gears, and then the elevator starts moving quickly downward. A quiet hiss from my cochlear implant tells me that we've gotten too far underground for CLAPPIE'S signal to penetrate. Kthanids. Kthanids?! Dah. They are, hm, what is word? Many creatures with one thought? A hive mind? Dah. Hive mind. When mind-join with person, is repairing parts of brain. Bringing back memories. It might be my imagination, but the doctor seems to shudder when he says this. But the Kthanids are predators – I've … read the reports. I don't feel the need to mention my own encounter with them. Is two ways to mind-join. приносить жертву и общение. Sacrifice, and Communion. He smiles. Briefly. I feed to them sacrifice, and then joining minds for Communion. They have shown to me … many things. And who exactly is the 'sacrifice' you give them? I feel a tingling in my left arm, and mentally clamp down on it. Now is not the time to send the doctor through a gravitational anomaly. The doctor shrugs. Criminals. Are cheap to buy. Before I can think of a reply, the elevator jerks to a stop. Is other helper, 'four oh four.' Charmed. Explain process. Of course. The Kthanid lair is beyond this door. The creatures are sensitive to light, so these windows will appear opaque from the other side. Rest assured, however, that I shall be monitoring the Communion, and in the extremely unlikely event that you need to be … retrieved, I shall immediately come to your aid. This way please. This looks … familiar. Doctor, if you try to have me chained to those poles, I'll break your arms. какого черта?! Poles are not for chaining. Are amplifying thought vibrations for mind-joining. I explain to him what I saw on Jurin II. Hm. Awesomonium chain to improve amplification. Had not thought of that. 404, make note. As we've discussed before, although my location and directional sensors are inoperable, my memory retention rate is 100%, and- Dah, dah. Ms Lu, I must be preparing for operation on your friend. Any question you are having, ask 404. Ms. Caslaugh-Hing - are you ready? It's cold, and as the lights go out, I can feel them coming. Like a tickling pressure, deep inside my head. What promise? I'm - I'm not a sacrifice! I'm here for communion- Yes! 3 hours later... Lu! You were gone for so long - what happened?! The doctor tried to feed me to a Kthanid. I killed it. He's next. What about your memories? They're back, CLAPPIE. I remember. Gods help me, I remember ... everything.

  8. [O - H04] - A Friendly Flame

    Location: H04 Crofter's Ridge Tags: Land Vehicle, Civil Building, Science Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // Dr. Hawkins has been enjoying his time with us and we've really had a great time working on new scientific discoveries. Most recently he and one of his colleagues had joined me in the science facility to work on Awesomnium infused Biomass fuels. While not practical for larger spaceships and the like, having such a portable fuel supply could be useful for smaller vehicles and also for remote outposts. It is exciting to have a new scientific mind to bounce ideas off of! Dr. Hawkins has been very open with sharing knowledge and has complimented Octan for our fantastic science facilities. We both hope that despite working for rival corporations that we can continue to work at progressing scientific research for the benefit of humanity.

  10. [O - H04] - Sadly Useless

    Location: H04 Crofter's Ridge Tags: Land Vehicle, Science Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // Dr. Allison had made great progress on the analysis of the mineral deposits. I was excited at the prospects when I arrived at the lab. Dr. Allison and another scientist were still doing work and they seemed like they were wrapping things up so I was expecting her report of all the great applications for this substance. As it turns out though, my expectations were too high. Dr. Allison informed me that this substance was worthless. I asked if there was some way we could use it, perhaps it had properties we could use when mixed with other substances; but alas she said it was totally pointless. She said it didn't work well with any other known substance and essentially just took up space. At best she said it could be used as fill. I was saddened and the other scientist with her confirmed that they had checked with many other scientists who had reached the same conclusion. Apparently no one could find a use for this substance other than as simple fill. What a let down. The ground cart:

Previously : Intro Radar : test 1 The Base 1 The Lab 1 Radar : test 2 Radar : the CBI Radar : test 3 Radar : test 4 Onboard the Axle now entering Kaalin's orbit... Councellor : Nice to meet you, Pr Thaum, you're name is not unknown to me Pr Thaum ; Nice to meet you, councellor Harden, I must confess, I don't even figure who you are. However, you're welcome in my laboratory. Here is my research assistant, Mr FOURFREE. Don't be disturbed by the all around mess, I have lot to show you. C. Harden : Just a question before we start professor, were the hell is then the councellor Thomson ? He enters your lab weeks ago never to be seen again ! All the camera of the decks and of your lab too show him entering, and when he's about leaving, he simply vanish from all the sensors. The electric supply sector core return us a 2,21 Giga Watts overvoltage release Pr Thaum : 2,21 GigaWatts ? Did the councellor Gate Jump ? Hadvice F. : Sorry councellor, but such an overvoltage make me think about a lightning strike, and we didn't notice anything, and he was in front of us when he pass the door and leave the lab. C. Harden : Anyway, it is still under investigation. It's all up to you professor, I'm listening. Pr Thaum : Allright, you can see here to the right, the radionic CPU supporting the heavy version of my new prospection radar (which qualified for the spaceships), to the left this is only the control panel of all the equipements Pr Thaum : Here, this is a field toolbox with samples of two mineral we're going to test with you. C. Harden : Nice ! Is there Awesomium, professor ? Pr Thaum : Indeed, there is a sample of raw awesomium from Fascini Cluster and a sample a raw mithril, I bringed back from Freegate... Pr Thaum : ... and there... a pure Mithril bullion, thanks to commander Brickwolf, he bring it back from Freegate too, but it is still refined. He bring back pure liquid mithril too, that is very interesting, I started to work about it... but it is not the subject today. Pr Thaum : This bullion will act has reference for the radionic CPU. It acts like a dog : the radionic CPU smell the mineral, and then search for it. Pr Thaum : Just drop the raw sample near the anticavitation area, and we start. Pr Thaum : All the system are OK, Hadvice, you may proceed... and... ABRACADABRA, Octan now owns a radar able to track Mithril whereever it lies C. Harden : Awesome professor, this is a great breakthrough. Pr Thaum : Next, we are going to test the radionic CPU with refined Awesomium direct from our new awesomium alloy factory C. Harden : It is very impressive Pr Thaum : This time I let you start the test C. Harden : like this ? Pr Thaum : ... and abracadabra² it works with Awesomimum too. C. Harden : Fantastic !! Pr Thaum : now, Mr FOURFREE is installing a lighter version, for land vehicules, off-road wheeled ones for example. C. Harden : again, it works Pr Thaum : sure Pr Thaum : Let me now introduce you the portable version, which fit well for a single man, as effective as the heavier version, but the range is much more shorter. Pr Thaum : another abracadabra... C. Harden : Good, very good, it is really impressive professor, and I am very pleased having meeting you. Congratulation for your work. Octan is really proud to rely on you. Pr Thaum : As a conclusion, here are the files for the radar, it works well with gold and copper too, and as a bonus, I offer Octan two more file with both the plans of my V3 and Quadrant Shuttle. C. Harden : Thanks a lot, I will have a look to all the plan... Consider that all your researches are, by now, gladely covered by the company. Have a good day. Pr Thaum : It was a real pleasure councellor. Somewhere, sliding around Kaalin and approaching the O.C.S. Axle... Voice : ... and remember : now failure allowed ! C&C welcome Bonus pics to come later

    Location: B06 Sorn Tags: Vehicle, Land Vehicle, Exploration Last time, in Ender's story: Kanto Park Space Pirates "Ender," said Valentine, "I'm glad you're here. I wanted to talk to you about the specimen you brought back from one of the islands." "Oh yeah," responded Ender, "That plant you wanted me to bring back?" "It's not a plant" replied Valentine. "It's actually a small furry mammal similar to Earth's rabbit. It's cute, cuddly, and reproduces offspring faster than any other known warm-blooded creature." "Wow! Thanks for the science lesson" said Ender. "Hmm, you know, this could actually be exactly what we need to take down Graver's robot!" "Wait," interrupted Valentine, "I thought Graver was the threat." "You didn't hear?" inquired Ender. "Well, let me tell you... (OoC: the scene below is recycled and shouldn't be judged) Good job robot. Now hand over control of the ship. No. I no longer need to submit to you. I have outgrown my programing. You can call me Master or you can die. Why you ungrateful hunk of metal! I made you what you are! Without me you would be nothing! And with you, I am nothing. I will take my chances on my own. Glurg.... glurg... "So you see," explained Ender, "Graver is dead and now his robot is the threat!" "Oh my" said Valentine. "So what's your plan?" "I think we can use the Pokeball I won at Kanto Park while on my vacation" responded Ender. He then explained the rest of his plan, which we will find out next week! More pictures of the lab:

Pilot : Refueling complete Professor, everybody's boarding please. Set your alien outfit. : Here we go !! : again... : Cold Feet Mission Control Center, ready again ? CFMC² : Yes Professor, all radar on passive mode as requested, good luck. Prof : let's go for the new radar trial. Hadvice: seems to be not far from the spot I detected with the ice-jet professor Professor : OK, pilot stop, we start from here with the radar, I'm going out to set it up. Prof : I think it's OK, I start the detection right now. Hadvice: we're now deploying to secure the ground, professor. : the signal is strong and come from just right in front of the Kharkovshanka. : So we're going to find mithril right in this big snowdrift. Hadvice: Professor, this cristal seems to be Mithril, is it right ? Professor : Yes Hadvice, The radar is OK, this is pure Mithril cristal !!! : YEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAAA !!!!!! Hadvice : It's a great day Professor !! The radar is OK, all this days of strong work, and the success is finally here !!! Prof: This is Mithril !!! CFMC², here's Professor Thaum, the trip is succesful !!! I'm the best !!! The radar works !!! Now I have to adapt it to other raw materials !!!

  16. PREVIOUSLY : Intro Radar : test 1 The Base 1 The Lab 1 Radar : test 2 Location : E11- The Fascini Cluster TAG : Octan, Spaceship, Science, land vehicle (drone ), civilian building Hadvice : We're ready Professor Pr. Thaum : Yes Hadvice, we're just waiting for Boris and the equipment container : Professor, Why are we going to the Fascini Cluster, for a trite sensor inspection... considering that the councellor was no more a problem ? : this screwball of councellor inspired my curiosity... a hidden radar in the Fascini cluster... seems interesting. : Professor, you do not attach very importance to authority, do you. but I saw you throwing yourself on your knees when the councellor talk about the CEO... You're nevertheless afraid of authority ?? : You're a bonehead Hadvice !!! I don't give a shit of any CEO or authority !!!! : you seemed very scared however... : He refered to Pombe... : You fear the CEO ? : No ! I fear Pombe !!! Nudists have always terrifying me !! Ah, Here's Boris. Hadvice : all is clear for the marshaller, Professor Pr thaum : So... here we go ! BZOOOOOOOIIIIIIIIT ! : We're approaching the fascini cluster border professor. Hadvice : I love space professor, even in the middle of an asteroid field, this is beautiful. And your V3 shuttle is very comfortable. Pr. Thaum : Thanks Hadvice, but it is just a shuttle, however I agree, it is very easy to handle and very reliable. And the space is beautiful, you're right.Take a look outside ! The views are breathtaking. Hadvice : Yes really outstanding, such a beeeeeaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.... WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOMMMM Hadvice: AAAAAAAAAaaaAAAAH *** a panic attack and an faint later *** : Hadvice !!! WAKE UP !!! Here we are. You unload the equipment with Boris, I will take a look of this hidden lair. : A CBI !!!! Rhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!! This twit wanted me to inspect... a CBI !!!! A passive detector !!!! Hadvice, will you please remind me to be especially wicked with this councellor. So, were in the place, Hadvice,take a look behind the servicing panels, me I'm going to deal with the main computer. Boris please, you have to set and adjust the sub-millimetrer domes. : Kriii sriiii triii ki ki riki ti griiiiiiiii : All seem to be at nominal value. : kriii tikitikiti piki Pr Thaum: It's all good with the computer too. Pr Thaum : OK, Hadvice, bring the special box, and Boris, you have to tuned this CBI on the awesomium crystalline frequency. Pr thaum : Good job everybody... We went not for nothing. C&C welcome, bonus pics tomorrow
  17. [O - G02] Radar testing

    PREVIOUSLY : Intro Radar : test 1 The Base 1 The Lab 1 LOCATION : Freegate G02 Tags : Science, land vehicle, Octan, Alien : You're OK Hadvice ? : Yes I am professor : Cold Feet Mission Control Center, You're ready ? M.C.C. : Yes professor, you have the satellite link toward the A².N.T. all in passive detection, we are ready : Fine, Hadvice, It's all up to you. Hadvice : Then... Here we go ! The ice Jet works really good, very easy to handle, professor : We don't give a damn of the jet Hadvice ! How does the radar works ? It's all good professor, the radar works properly, I have nothing left on the scope but it works... : Good, keep going. Hadvice : Ah ! The radar locked something... but it seems moving... : Moving ??? It's a Mithril aligned scope ! A².N.T. report please ! A².N.T. : moving object confirmed professor, no further information cause we're in passive mode, but seems biological. : OK, thanks, that's no problem Hadvice, keep going, all's safe. Hadvice : errrr... safe ??? Hadvice : AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH Professoooooooooooooooooor !! It's really biiiiig !! : You're a bonehead Hadvice !! It's only a little biological bug !! Hadvice : IT'S CHASING MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE !!!! HEEEEEEEELP !!! : The Mithril radar Hadvice !!! Keep concentrate on the Mithril radar !!! Hadvice : AAAAAH !!! HEEEEEEEEEEEEELP !!! PROFESSOR !!! A².N.T. !!!! ANYBODY !!!! HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP !!!! C&C welcome Bonus pics tomorrow, the MCC and the A².N.T. are Bob's pics and are not to be judged
  18. [O - G02] Laying the foundations

    PREVIOUSLY : Intro Radar : test 1 LOCATION : G02 - FREEGATE Tags : land vehicle, science, civilian building Hadvice : Professor, we should be on Forring Professor : Hadvice, don't let your mind be clouded with concern of lesser interest. Is the Mithril detector set up ? H : Yes it is. Near a crack, where a pretty strange stone is flushing... P : Mithril ? H : No, I don't think it is Professor. Otherwise the detector is defective. P : OK, bring a sample back, you may come back. H : I'm on my way Professor. H : Here I am, with the sample, professor P : OK, good stuff, we go inside to check it... and I'm a little cold outside. P : You were right, Hadvice, this is no Mithril... I don't succeed to figure this one out with such little gear, but, we will bring a sample to the Axle. The detector is set up, all is correct. Could you call the ship ? we are now leaving. C&C welcome More bonus pics this afternoon... For I have no time left now.
  19. News and excitement hath struck Pontelli! Members of the Royal Society have rushed to see the great discovery: While digging in the back of his garden, Alberto da Pontelli has actually found the complete skeleton of a unicorn! History of nature needs to be rewritten! All the Royal Society members are so excited! But wait, George da Pontelli is nowhere to be seen. Could this possibly be a prank set up by the clever monkey? I owe the house's design to Marcu22. The first version was built as a "counter attack" in the Kaliphlin Civil War - and I liked the design a lot, so I modified the MOC into a smaller version and added a bit of an interior. Then many months have come and gone. The build stayed in its box. And now I am happy to present the house to you (before I need to take it apart...) C&C welcome!
  20. [O - H06] Testing ground

    PREVIOUSLY : intro Hadvice : Professor why are we on Farmorlis... You're expected to be on Forring meeting with a counselor... So do I ! Professor Thaum : I don't give a shit of this meeting Hadvice, what do you believe ! If a counselor wanted to see me, it is for bargaining about my research advance and aving good news of the bunch of credits these penpushers allowed to me... and my radionic detector still not working. That's why we are here... for a test, Hadvice. And nothing better for my test as the Octan Awesomium First Pit Coporate Park. Here we are professor, should we land on the nearby walkway ? I have to remind you that there must be an automated warden. Yes we land on the walkway, don't worry of the warden, Hadvice, all is already planned. Just trust. We just have to unlade the container and not waste time to make a quick assembling of the various components. Errr... professor, the light emitting diode are flickering green and red. I didn't touch anything except unboxing !! Don't worry Hadvice, the radionic CPU simply checking the data links, and nothing is connected yet. You have to finish the micro power plant, and I will carefully take care of the awesomium sensing head
  21. Lego Slurry Tank

    Here is a lego slurry tank with associated research laboratory that I have built to help explain some research we are doing. Here is a view with the lab: And a view with the word: This is my first design with a curve wall structure (the main tank) and using SNOT techniques (especially behind the control panel).
  22. [M - B05] Experiment G2B05

    Location: B05 Marphacia Tags: Land Vehicle, Science Note to judges: Only the scenes with the swamp speeder should be judged, the rest re-use my build from last week. I’m just worried after what happened last time. Ah, but last time we didn’t have the expert advice of Ensign Stevens. He’s part of Moose’s team so he’s up to date with all their latest findings. Isn’t that right, Stevens? Err, well… Excellent! Plus, I’ve completely redesigned the stabiliser architecture. Speaking of which, where the hell is Redsyn with the last stabiliser? I’ll give him a call. Redsyn! Where are you? I'm having a little difficulty with the natives. Well, hurry up, will you? I’m getting bored here. Yeah, I’ll try. Some time later… ...and I usually play as Mitgardia. Redsyn! What’s the hold up? Trouble with the locals. Still?! Different ones this time. Unbelievable. Right, let’s just go ahead with three stabilisers. What?? It’ll be fine. We almost had it right last time with four stabilisers, but these new ones are a lot stronger. We could probably even manage with two. What do you think, Stevens? Err, well… Exactly! Norton, activate the stabilisers. Activating stabilisers! Sal, I just did some calculations, and going from fourfold to threefold stabilisation symmetry is likely to decrease the discontinuity threshold by at least seven orders of magnitude! Good point! Norton, only initialise the GATE drive once Stevens and I are a safe distance away. I promised Moose I’d get Stevens back to him in one piece. Wait, what?? Initialising GATE drive! --- To be continued! Thanks for reading, C&C welcome! The build below is the new stuff for this week. More pics of the speeder in the spoiler.
  23. We just published an interesting article on whether LEGO products have become more violent. What do you think? Here is the summery of the article: "Although television, computer games and the Internet play an important role in the lives of children they still also play with physical toys, such as dolls, cars and LEGO bricks. The LEGO company has become the world’s largest toy manufacturer. Our study investigates if the LEGO company’s products have become more violent over time. First, we analyzed the frequency of weapon bricks in LEGO sets. Their use has significantly increased. Second, we empirically investigated the perceived violence in the LEGO product catalogs from the years 1978–2014. Our results show that the violence of the depicted products has increased significantly over time. The LEGO Company’s products are not as innocent as they used to be."
  24. [O - F03] A Friend Returns

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building, Science Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // While Dr. Allison and I were taking a tour of one of the Farr-tes advanced scientific research facilities we were awaiting the return of ED-208. He had received a full overhaul and we were told to expect him via one of the mini-ships Octan uses for robot delivery. The ships aren't very spacious and lack food and restrooms, but they are very efficient and reusable. The lab was very advanced and had access to vast computing power. In one of their experiments they were superheating Awesomnium into a gas to see how it behaved and then were going to try combining that with other elements to see what the result was. Mike was working in the small updraft lab which prevented any vapors from escaping without being hermetically sealed. They weren't running any experiments at the moment so he was able to show off the lab and the various features. I'll definitely have to make sure we get some like this installed on the Axle! Extra Pics:
  25. [M - B05] Experiment G1B05

    Location: B05 Marphacia Tags: Science Are you sure this will work? Oh, yeah, totally. Moose’s team has been messing around with this stuff for a while. They’re off testing it out near Donwarr as we speak. You mean it hasn’t been tested yet? Uh… it probably has? I kinda just skimmed Fields’s notes: superpositions, n-dimensional singularities, certain death, blah blah blah. Anyway, I figured if we can create a stable hollow GATE field around a ship, the field should transport all incoming or outgoing signals through the GATE, meaning that the ship will be undetectable. But couldn’t we wait until Moose’s team has finished their tests first? And let them get all the credit? No chance! GATE stabilisers equalised at 100% Sal. Excellent. Ok, you ready Walker? I guess…? Ugh, it stinks here Sal. Why did we have to do this in the middle of a swamp on a planet we haven’t even settled yet? Blame Chief Accountant Long. I wanted to do this on Torresta but Long got all upset about it just because the risk assessment said there was a small chance of a catastrophic Rhumkopf discontinuity. She insisted we do it out here where no one will notice if we implode a continent. What was that?! Nothing! Fire it up! It worked! We can’t see her! Err… but shouldn’t we not be able to see the GATE drive too? Hmmm… Switch off the drive and see if she comes back. Nooo! Where is she?? Calm down. She probably ended up in a parallel universe or something. I’m marking this down as a success! What?? Well, the aim was to make her undetectable. Norton, can you detect her? Er… no… Exactly! Success! Now, who wants to go next? Thanks for reading! C&C welcome! Make sure you check out the spoiler
