Which of you has had the most trouble on your travels, and what were the most memorable incidents?
There’s a lot of murmuring as the collective tries to work out between them whose had the most trouble; Requiem is quiet in the corner.
“Oh! There was that time that we got held up by a bunch of slag-for-processors when we were trying to navigate an asteroid belt with the planet,” Solar Pax offers. He gestures off toward Sparkhaven. “Do you know how hard it is to maneuver a newly-built planet through an asteroid belt while someone is threatening to blow apart your fleet if you don’t give them sheet metal? It was ridiculous! Everyone was short-circuiting! Benzyl snapped and Butyl had to keep the Dreadnought in formation.”
“That’s nothing! Fireball put me in a box once and shipped me to this Goddess with backstruts for miles that owed her some cabbage. There was this big shindig going on, so I jacked up out of the box and there was a security guard right there, so I-”
“Brother, I told you to jump out of her cake for a surprise, not a box. You recall?” Fireball interrupts, narrowing her optics in displeasure. She doesn’t have to worry about half the room since they barely understand what’s coming out of Dealbreaker’s intake, but the Officer is obviously taking notes.
“Oh, Carrier’s the word,” Dealbreaker blinks his optics in thought for an astrosecond. “So, hypothetically there was a guard gaping like a oilcarp who hypothetically got intimate with the lid of a hypothetical box before someone hypothetically dove off a balcony on to a hypothetical cake and waiter…so I’ve heard.”
Fireball’s battle-mask and visor clicks into place to keep her faceplates’ twisting in frustration out of sight.
“Requiem, did you not have any adventures before you came to our home?” Nanostorm asks the undertaker in the corner.
“I once took up the position of an engineer upon a ship bound for the outer reaches. I am not an engineer, so the ship became stranded one stellar cycle into the voyage due to engine failure. The Captain went outside to repair it. He became lost to the void. However, he must have finished repairs before for the ship ran once more as if nothing had happened. The crew did not even seem to notice his absence after a few orns.”
“Why I always get the feel’en you’re pull’en our stabilizers?” Flux asks the undertaker.
“Yeah, you’re always spouting out ghost stories.” Crux agrees.
“Believe what you wish.”
