Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Rather strong. What's worrisome, though, is that, according to the ship's blueprints, there's nothing behind the wall it retreated into - the room behind it is just the docking bay, and there was never any hole in the docking bay.

    It's almost as if the hole weren't actually in the wall itself, but merely the space the wall occupied.

    Dux looks at the, now closed, breach. 'If that thing was the warp core, then I think we have something.... interesting on our hands....' He pauses for a second. 'Mr. Sunshine, were you aware of the presence of this creature?' he says over the comm.

    "You just need a gentle touch." Downbeat looks for a lock to jimmy open.

    I'd assume private eye would involve lockpicking?

    "I was not informed of the creature's presence. Neither were any of the other genemod pilots."

    [8] After about a minute of searching, Downbeat puts together the clues, and comes to the conclusion that he is attempting to lock-pick a wall.

    Dux strokes his chin. 'Mr. Sunshine, do you by chance know who the inventor of the warp engine is?' He can't help but smirk at the machine's attempts to lock pick a wall. He must have forgotten quite a lot indeed. Good thing he's wearing a helmet.

    Dux ignores Downbeat for a second. 'Where does this Dr. Kutukora live?' he asks Sunshine. He then turns to Downbeat. 'Apologies, it was just slightly amusing. I meant no offense.'

    "Most certainly. It's a simple enough procedure." Feli laughs, and waves his hand dismissively."You may not want to be too rough on yourself for a bit. I think I shall go and see what was going on in the warp drive room that was causing all that shaking."

    He leaves the room, having changed back to his usual tailored suit, complete with his rose-tinted glasses.

    Dux rolls his eyes. 'Whatever you say Mr... Downbeat was it?' He turns to Foghorn. 'This Dr. Kutukora is the inventor of the warp engine. If there is anyone who can shed light on this..... whatever it is, it is him.'

    Note that he's wearing a helmet at the moment which covers his entire face.

    Feli enters the room just in time to hear Foghorne's statement and Downbeat's reply,"All sentient beings are born with an intrinsic sense of humour. So in a way, we're all experts."

    "Now can someone explain to me why you nearly made me botch Mr. Locth's surgery by shaking the whole ship from this room?" Feli says, perturbed.


    He turns to Dubh and says,"As an aside, it worked. The surgery is complete."

    "Look, Dr., when you encounter a giant tentacle sometimes things get hairy. Those hooking suckers..." Downbeat shudders. "Anyway, warp core failure because of the weird thing that "lives" in the warp core room. I should have gotten a scan, but easy come, easy go... wait." Downbeat tries to scan the entire room for radiation signatures.

    "I'm all for going to the source, Dux, but seems to me that we should look closer to home before knocking on the door of a man who invented a top-secret military technology such as this. Especially since we're public enemy number one to the particular nation that payed him.

    But hey landing on a human world to extract a possibly hostile and probably well-guarded scientist actually does sound kind of fun, so I'm game."

    "Dr. Kutukora has a private lab in his penthouse suite in Niotokio, within Japanination, on planet Anyymaye."

    Downbeat scans the room, but can find no residual radiation of any sort - this is strange, as you'd assume any sort of engine would produce at least some background radiation of some kind.

    "And yet somehow it is offline!"

    Speed tries to get in to the warp room to see what the fuck you people have done.


    Considering that the scientist is Annymaynian and Dead made a point to capitalize the word "speed" every time he used it during the fight I think we've got my god!

    Also the red and blue color scheme really I'm just stating the obvious here.

    Good eye, Speed. Good eye.

    [23] Speed enters the room and has a look around. Using his knowledge as a helmsman, he quickly pieces together the fact that there is essentially no engine in this room.

    'It is quite logical Mr. Foghorne. It's something I took into account, however you are right in that Mr. Racer can still be of assistance. Call it a hunch, but I think we will encounter these beings again, and Mr. Racer's speed will be essential in defeating them. Also, my knowledge of Japanination is somewhat..... lacking... to say the least.'
