Queen Galacta: Message from Jon

“Your majesty, there is a message from Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator,” the technician said. “He is requesting an audience with you.”

“That is highly unusual,” I said as I rose gracefully from my throne.

“I would agree, Your highness,” Major Rocksun added. “In the past, it has been you have contacted him for help.”

I thought back to our most recent encounter when he was instrumental in fighting off an invasion of Throneworld by an unusual species from the future called the Zerg. Right before that, he escorted me to Captain Picard’s party on the Enterprise. Of course, the less said about the incident there, the better. That Captain Picard is a handsome fellow, though. Perhaps I should visit him again sometime.

Jon, along with one of his fellow Earthmen Professor Xavier, also helped out in a first contact situation where they met with an unusual sentient starship. Although I don’t know if I could officially approve of their methods of putting that ship and a monkeyboy together, they certainly did get the job done. I may have to call upon Professor Xavier again in the near future, he is also a very charming man.

There was also that time where I visited Earth and Jon saved me from space zombies while simultaneously rooting out a traitor posing as one of my agents. I could never forget that adventure, those “Chicago dogs” certainly were delicious.

I have many loyal subjects and many competent people surrounding me at all times. Major Rocksun, most notably, is certainly a man dedicated to his work and I cannot ever express my gratitude for that. Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator is different, though. Jon’s charm and thirst for adventure is simply amazing. My galaxy is certainly a better place for having him here.

“Shall we allow him to visit you, Your highness?” the technician asked. Clearly he was waiting to respond to Jon’s message.

“Absolutely,” I answered. “I would be more than delighted to have him in My presence once more.”
