Default Re: Ye New Galactic Bar & Grill & Phong\'s Head Cantina - After Hours

A beermat flies out of the portal and lands on the ruined ground beneath. Almost immediately, an octopus squelches out of a puddle to retrieve it. It reads a note written on the beermat, then disappears into the sea.

Shortly afterwards, a massive dreadnought rumbles out of the sky and powers itself into the portal...

(see the cantina replacement thread for the other half of the story.)

...The mean looking ACME cruiser finally reaches its destination - the sun.
Immediately deploying the Inverted Quantum Beam weapon, the ACME Master Computer 74d7b92 beams a warning message to all vessels in the system:

Warning! This craft has been instructed to cause the local star to implode into a Black Hole. All sentient beings are directed to vacate this system immediately. I repeat this system is going to be destroyed. Have a nice day!

With no further warning the Inverted Quantum Beam is activated and the irreversible process of turning the sun into a Black Hole is begun.

(At this point, this commentator recommends a very hasty exit from this thread!... )

As soon as Spork gets the warning he sends off one Last message to Power Man. A small ship leaves the Dread2 and dives into the portal.

The Dread 2 opens a new jump point and disappears from the system.

SO Long Old Cantina !!

And so it begins...
