Prepping to leave SRC

Posted 07-15-2013 at 09:52 AM by PhantomCruiser

“You must be out of your mind!” exclaimed Kirby “You don’t seriously think you can put up a fully functioning space station inside of thirty days?”
Victor Hugo finished the last of his shrimp fried rice and reached for another eggroll. “Not out of my mind, and yes it’s perfectly doable”. He paused long enough to search the small coffee table, finally finding a small bowl of hot sauce “Ah! Remember now, it’ll be functional, but far from complete.” Swirling the eggroll around in the sauce...

Phantom receives guests at Polygon

Posted 06-25-2013 at 10:17 AM by PhantomCruiser

John Kirby and Cleveland Davis stood just inside Polygon’s passenger terminal when the screeching of a hard-breaking golf cart diverted their attention towards the main doors. Maria Kolsov rushed in wearing her flight suit and flight bag, making a mad dash towards the woman’s restroom. A quick glance at each other with an implied shrug between them, they again watched the horizon through the massive terminal windows, looking for a speck to emerge out of the haze that would signal the arrival...

More from SRC Polygon

Posted 04-03-2013 at 09:51 AM by PhantomCruiser

Whether illicit or approved, every airfield is going to have one. There’s always a hole-in-the-wall swill serving joint somewhere nearby. They’ll be called by different names, but the wood paneling, dart boards, pool table, creaky leather and dim lighting provide a worldwide continuity.

Battleships and me...

My thoughts on the movie “Battleship”; from a battleship sailor…

When I first heard that there was a movie to be released about my old ship I thought to myself “Dang, Michael Bay’s going to ruin another one…” I assumed that if I were to watch it in theatres that I’d need double hearing protection and a few shots in me to assist in the suspension of belief in order to make it through the entire movie. For these reasons I elected to skip it entirely and wait until I could watch it on...
