Sector 7G

"Were entering Sector 7G, one of the most perilous patches of space in this galaxy," Jan the Intergalactic Aviator announced over the intercom.

As Hudson and I raced to the cockpit, I felt the last mental attack subside. We looked around the sector, though, but didn't see anything.

"This is supposed to be the spot," Jan said while looking at her instruments.

"Maybe they left," suggested Hudson.

"I don't know," I shook my head.

Suddenly, cannon fire raked our shields and a small ship passed over us.

"That must be them!" cried Hudson.

"That's a short-range fighter," Jan said. "What's he doing way out here?"

As we chased the craft, a large object appeared before us.

"What's that?" I asked. "A moon?"

"That's no moon," Jan shook her head. "That's a--"

"Is it a meteor?" asked Hudson.

"No, it's a--"

"A comet?" Hudson asked.

"No, it can't be a comet. It must be a--"

"Is it space debris?" Hudson inquired.

"No, it's not that, either. It has to be--"

"Is it a meteor?" Hudson inquired.

"No, it can't be that. It has to be a--"

"Is it a newly formed planet that isn't on any of the charts?" Hudson needled.

"No, you stupid idiot!" Jan yelled. "It's not any of those! It's a space station! A freakin space station! Can't you tell? It's all metal and has sensor pods and antenna and weapons sticking out all over it! What the heck is your problem, anyway?"

"Well, I was just sayin,'" Hudson answered sheepishly.

"Great, now we're caught in it's tractor beam," Jan growled. "We're stuck. Guess we'll see who's in there after all."

"We'll be ready," I said with grim determination.

"Wait," Jan said. "I have a plan."

A spacestation the size of a moon? Inconcievable!

Wedge Antillies said...

I would try and guess who is on board that enormous station, but I would probably be wrong.

Cool a Jan Plan. They are the best, especially when she is out to prove she is better than Marsha. But then it backfires and she has to have a heart to heart talk with her step-dad.

Gyrobo said...

What a coincidence! Homer Simpson works in Sector 7G. He must be the one running that station.

Gyrobo said...

That's why it's so big; it's full of donuts.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Sector 7G, one of the most dangerous sectors of the galaxy, sharing it's moniker with the place where Homer Simpson works has got to be pure coincedence and nothing more.

Professor Xavier said...

As long as Jan's plan involves being taken prisoner by the enemy, I think it should work.

JawaJuice said...

Man, that Hudson… Nothing gets past him.
Let me guess, when he first saw the ‘alien’, he thought it was a meteor, right?

Vegeta said...

When he first saw me he thought I was a meteor.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Yeah, Hudson's our special guy.

Aayla Secura said...

I hope whoever inside that spacestation is friendly towards you and your friends.

Professor Xavier said...

Does this look infected?

When Hudson was a Kid , did he ride the SHORT BUS to school ?

I thought we all vote on Death Disco Ball !!

My memory is failin me I guess

Jaina Solo said...

Hudon's not so hot on the space travel stuff is he?

Gyrobo said...

Hudson- the river or the manwich?

turboslut said...

I'm on tenderhooks here .......

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I'm sure it will just be a friendly space station, and nothing will happen.

flu said...

Y'all must've spotted the space station from waaaaaayyyy off!

It's taking forever for you guys to land.

Jaina Solo said...

Wait! I've forgotten! What did you expect to find?
