Small ship with a big punch will eat your lunch (Alien)

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 30, 2014 5:54 am

"HiggsPigs
Cyborg Federation Battleship
HCF BigPig
this is Captain Bip
requesting docking protocols
at docking port A2
in Virgin Galactica".

"City Class Ship Virgin Galactica
sending docking protocols
now. Please proceed to docking port A2".


HCF BigPig
did dig
into a docking port
that this two kilometers long
City Class Ship now supports.

HCF BigPig
was only 250 meters long
but it has fire power that belongs
to larger class ships
due to antimatter weapons
that are hip.

HCF BigPig
is delivering antimatter weapons
to Virgin Galactica as a bigger
battle with Kilrat
Space Cats
might come sooner
than later.

I obviously watched
and read
too much SciFi that I dread
it is easy to write stuff in my head.

I subverted some conventions
like the following I like to mention.

Humans here are all cyborgs
with cyborg
allies like the Star Trek Borg
but friendly Borg.

The Borg
speaks of an inner fear
we have of technology
that I don't have and I dearly
love to become a Borg.

I also twisted
and contorted
Star Wars making Luke a pitiful
and quite sorrowful
character.

A character
that I can relate to better
but I am better
than that character.

Making love during a neoMafia civil war

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 30, 2014 8:29 am

Tony is a capo of a neoMafia
on Bor
where life is never a bore
as a neoMafia
civil war between Tony clones
had gone full blown.

"Bor
is rich in precious metals like Gold.

I have been told
that Gold
is distributed unevenly.

Hence we have the ungainly
battle for possession
of mines for protection
money
is ongoing honey.

I won't intervene
until I have seen
a reduction
in our take",
said an immortal
Tony to his immortal wife
as they make
love
and enjoyed life.

They made love
until a loyal servant robot
brought
news bad
and sad.

Naked and alone with a Robotic Bugsy Malone

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 30, 2014 8:51 am

The robotic BugsyAI
said, "Why
don't you intervene
now
as you are now
seen
as a useless capo by most of your clones
in this battle zone",
A holographic display
played
out the battle zone
conflicts
and color coded the casualties it inflicted.

As the hologram floated in the air
great
despair
took over Tony
as damage to his Tony
clones
had been great
in this battle zone.

Tony
had been a quite fair
boss to his clones
but the clones
envy other clones
who have Gold mines in their zones
to extort
or so does the robot BugsyAI reports.

## choices as a neoMafia boss and morality you do toss. ##

a. Decide to side with a weak faction
that seeks defensive help.
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5327&p=46538#p46538

b. Decide to side with a strong faction

All that is left in a life so empty and bereft (Outcast)

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 30, 2014 10:11 am

Luke
did look
for hacking jobs
that Luke
no longer loved
but Luke's
half hearted attempts
at several interviews only gained Luke
a measure of contempt.

Asked about his five year
plan Luke
said, "In five years
I fear
I can't project my dear"

This former high flyer
in the corporate world
might now aim for the fryer
in the fast food world.

However, Luke
still
had a reputation
of having brain hacking skills.

It would kill
for Luke
to ruin Luke's
reputation
as I would mention
it is all Luke
had left
in a life so empty and bereft.

Terran Cyborg Federation Battleship Enterprise (Aliens)

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 30, 2014 11:41 am

Terran Cyborg Federation Battleship
TCF Enterprise

TCF Enterprise
Captain's blog "We are entering
Gileise system in our hip
refitted Battleship.

We had some damage in encountering
hostile Space Cats
we call Kilrats
before the refitting
and upgrading
of weapons
and shields.

I can hardly believe the explosive yields
of our new antimatter weapons
which proved effective
in our earlier decisive
victory at the cost
of lost
drones
and minor damage in certain ship zones"

We will rendezvous
with some nervous
HiggsPigs allies in the system aware
and a bit scared
of the threat that the Kilrats pose
that we oppose"

No plans for your immortal life?

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 30, 2014 12:25 pm

Luke
asked Uncle Owen
about Luke's
option to become a lawyer when
Luke's
career
options are in careening
down in a slope
with little hope
of recovering
only discovering
that Owen
disapproved.

That
proved
decisive
in killing that
option.

Luke
was indecisive
about Luke's
future career options.

Uncle Owen
said when
Luke
was young Luke
had so much
talent that it was such
a waste
to change careers at great haste.

Luke
is confused
as Luke
struggled to refuse
to acknowledge
the knowledge
that Luke
had no plans for the future
and with immortality secured
it was a long future.

An immortal human wishes for death (Outcast)

Post by secretnude » Thu Jan 30, 2014 12:55 pm

Luke
now lives off the money Luke
saved while
Luke
was an executive at AppleMicrosoft
only to resign
as Luke's
heart was too soft.

Deadlines burned Luke
out by design
and NDA
does say
speaketh no evil
of the evil
company AppleMicrosoft.

No plans for the future
Luke
started writing to secure
some distraction
from the eternal void
that seeks attention
Luke
wants to avoid.

Luke
now does fiction
with narration
and action
via Luke's
neurochip and neonet link
by thinking
and linking
ideas in Luke's
head
that others might struggle to keep
ahead.

Sometimes, Luke
wished Luke
was dead.

Oh, Hi
I have no intention to die
unlike poor Luke
in the poem above , the only hope
that ironically gave up hope.

I love irony
maybe ironyman
instead of secretnude
might be a better handle
as it is better to light
a candle
than stumble on a nude
Tony Stark
in the dark.

Poems might
look semi autobiographical
it is more fictional.

I burned out but more my body's fault
than my mind,
I find.

By default
I hate inactivity
and hence there is so much activity
on this thread
as emptiness and void
I want to avoid.

Imagine all the (Alien) Space Hippos living life in peace

strong
protests
to stop the violence these Hippos
detest.

Terran Cyborg General MorSpace
said: "Let these Hippie Hippos

When the Hippie

home world is endangered
can Hippie Hippos
still be a stranger

Nude (Alien) Hippie Hippos high in Space face Humans

Post by secretnude » Fri Jan 31, 2014 6:35 am

Hippie Hippos did not pose
a threat to our Orbital Defence base
so we allowed them to expose
themselves nude
and sing Terran
songs
like Hey Jude.

Some of our staff also sang along.

Fascinating how Terran culture
is able to supplant existing alien cultures.

These Hippie Hippos
are high on Terran
drugs imported from Earth
or grown with their own dirt.

Hippie Hippo male gonads
are internal
unlike Human male gonads
which are external.

Gladly one less thing to stare
at but Hippos did dare
for us Humans to get nude
and we told them it would be rude.

Hey nude (Alien) Hippo, don't take it bad, take a sad song

Post by secretnude » Fri Jan 31, 2014 7:00 am

A few Hippie Hippos
disrupted
space traffic and some fights erupted
as the Hippie Hippos
were on high on various Terran
drugs.

We had to sweep the Hippie Hippos
under a rug.

We rounded up nude
Hippie Hippos
singing Terran
songs like Hey Jude.

We also held the Hippie Hippo's tiny spacecraft
in our aft
spacecraft docks
under lock
as the Hippie Hippos
are in no condition
to fly
unless they want to die.

Two
Tractor beams from our Two
Kilometer long City in Space
also captured spacecraft
by our Hippie Hippo
friends
whose fun we brought to an end.

Balance of power and payments

Post by secretnude » Fri Jan 31, 2014 7:33 am

In a neoMafia civil war
between Tony Tenor
clones near and far
Tony Tenor
decided
to side
with a weaker faction
with only a fraction
of the resources
of the stronger faction
as Tony
felt a need
to balance the powers indeed.

Tony
covertly supplied funds
to his allies that understandably
deny getting assistance
as any chance
of getting out of this war
is worth lying for
with morality out of the door.

Unfortunately, it only prolonged the war
and cost Tony
more than he bargained for.

In the end Tony
is weak
and other neoMafia
Tony's
territory thus seek.

Might makes right in a fair fight?

Post by secretnude » Fri Jan 31, 2014 8:02 am

In a nasty neoMafia civil
war between really evil
Tony Tenor
clones, evil
Tony Tenor
thought might
is right
in a fair fight
even if his evil
clones don't fight fair.

Tony Tenor told the weaker side
to stand aside or decide
to be exterminated with deadly force,
of course.

Weaker side
did decide
to hold ground
and found
capable neoMafia allies

neoMafia allies
made them hard to defeat.

It was quite a feat
as Tony
had to pony
up cash
that mostly ended as trash
after a clash.

Tony
ends up weak
and other neoMafia Tony's
territory thus seek.

Galactic neonet with (Alien) and Human Cyborgs

Post by secretnude » Fri Jan 31, 2014 9:00 am

Once the Kilrat
Space Cats
learned
that Tau Cetaceans earned
permanent membership
in the Cyborg Federation
their Kilrat Battleships left
bereft
of the victory they almost had
and Kilrat
Space Cats
were very sad.

A 2 km long orbital base
was put in place
with funds
I understand
from the Tau Cetaceans
and to be manned
by Tau Cetaceans.

Tau Cetaceans
was glad to be enhanced
by chance
with hip
compatible neurochips
to be the third race
to grace
the galactic neonet
with FTL ansible backbone links
planets to with species that think
different thoughts
and great diversity this brought.

I first read about an ansible
in Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.

I might be making a terrible
mistake as writing is not hard
for me
by giving away so much for free.

However, some of you might know
that I am new
and unpublished in a literary 'zine
and hence here I try to make a scene
and be seen.

I have made quite a scene
with a giant thread with links
that Google now , I think
ranks this secretnude
over other less savory
(not me) secretnudes

This is my only official secretnude
online presence
at present.
