The Cruiser as a foster parent?

Posted 04-22-2015 at 09:41 PM by PhantomCruiser

Some of you guys may have seen in the random comments thread that the Cruiser family might be taking on a little girl as a foster kid (and probably later adoption). I figure instead of dropping my thought in the world of randomness I'd try to keep them tidy and in one place.

Anyway, I got a call today from a lady with child services, she'll be coming by Monday (27th) for a home visit, so the Mrs, Miss and I will be frantically cleaning the house for it to be presentable. It's not...

Syracuse; Mission 1 (Victor's point of view)

It was with great relief that Victor (Hugo) Patel watched the massive rocket riding on a column of flame and exhaust as it cleared the launch pad. The Energia stack looked somewhat ungainly and graceful at once as the stack began to pirouette towards the launch heading as directed by the flight computer. Eight minutes, Victor reminded himself, if I can make it eight minutes I’ll be OK. Behind him there was a team of people enjoying a mix of hamburgers, fries, hot dogs and bratwursts, as the Phantom...

Victor's Vignette

Posted 08-19-2013 at 09:41 AM by PhantomCruiser

Victor (Hugo) Patel leaned against the railing of the CSSC assembly building roof and did his best not to be awestruck. After several days with not enough sleep, he finally looked at the Energia rocket with its Buran-T payload container as it was crawling its way out to the big pad at Carl Sagan Space Center. Facilities personnel mixed about with RSC and Roscosmos people checking, rechecking and final checking every single item on a long punch-list of things that would need going over again...

Phantom departs

Posted 07-22-2013 at 10:24 AM by PhantomCruiser

After a flurry of well executed phone calls, emails, notifications and exchanged bottles of alcohol, the crew of Phantom Manufacturing that was loosely attached to SRC Polygon had managed to truck or fly in several tons of white sand, miles of colored lights and paper lanterns and copious amounts of booze. Nearly everyone at the facility that wasn’t actively involved in the after-hours operation was milling about the cabanas and enjoying the ad-hoc beach party that John Kirby had arranged prior...

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”.

Remember now, it’ll be functional, but far from complete.” Swirling the eggroll around in the sauce...
