episode 5: there’s a zombie in the corridor

Heave a sigh of relief: Leet’s symmetry has been restored. Might suggest you breathe through your mouth, though, as there’s a rapidly decomposing dead person in the corridor. Messing up Joe’s clean floors. Seriously, zombies are why we can’t have nice things.

Not clear on the Cumberbatch/penguin reference? https://youtu.be/9GHPNKUMf70?t=200

episode 3: great heaving chesticles

Have you ever thrown the last of your milkshake out the car window, only to have it splat on the windshield of the car behind you?

Now imagine doing that with liquified human remains, in space, where there are no windshield wipers. Or gas stations with handy squeegee things. What happens next? You might get a really irritated comms call from the next ship in line, who are, incidentally, also about to hit you.

episode 2: I had a cake all to meself

Something’s gone pretty wrong on the Oz 9, and Olivia, the ship’s AI, doesn’t seem all that keen to fix it. Meanwhile, Colin’s convinced he was the target (despite being the only one in his section still alive), and the mystery of Leet’s missing shirts is being completely ignored, unlike his pecs.

Will they figure out who cranked up the tanners? Or even how to make lunch?

episode 1: welcome aboard! run.

On an otherwise unexceptional Tuesday in 2042, Gated Galaxies fired off 400 of its Oz 8000™ ships, each with 50,000 “resting guests” tucked into stasis pods, plus a skeleton crew of up to half-a-dozen total no-hopers.

It was a win-win for G2, as they’re known, as the Oz 8000 model was about to be declared “unfit for journeying to the nearest 7-Eleven, much less interstellar space” and recalled. G2 had a very large fleet of the 8000s, and a slight head start on the recall, as they’d paid off the head inspector to delay her report by promising the ships would be stripped and sold for parts. Instead, the ships were spit-shined, outfitted with some black market YugoPods™, and space aboard quietly sold to very very rich people on the promise that somewhere up there, screamingly wealthy and privileged lives away from the riff raff of Earth were to be had.

To their credit, there was a lot of screaming, so they had that right.

This is the story of one of those ships, the Oz 9, and the utterly futile attempts of its crew to fulfill its stated mission: to deliver the passengers safely to their new, terraformed planet. At its unstated (and unknown) mission – to make Gated Galaxies even richer by doing some sneaky, underhanded and occasionally homicidal things – it was a massive success.
