Macgyver in Space

Post by secretnude » Fri Feb 07, 2014 5:02 pm

Strip
of Duct Tape fixed a rip
in my Space Suit.

I was exploring
Ceres' rock core
and boring
rock core samples.

Precious samples
I don't want to throw away
but my oxygen is low.
I only have hours, I know.

Hundreds of kilometers below
rock and ice
and under a shaft that is nice
a plan to ascend fast,
I made at last.

Under the shaft, I jumped and flew
as this is low gravity, I knew.

I threw
down my rock core samples
to propel myself and as I accelerate
am impelled to throw more at any rate.

Fire a signal flare if you dare

Post by secretnude » Fri Feb 07, 2014 5:37 pm

I accelerated away from Ceres' core
and I felt less helpless than before.

However as oxygen levels grew low
my spirits thus sink below.

I have 400 kilometers
of rock and ice
that is not nice
for millimeter
wave radio signals.

Hence, a signal flare
I dared
to fire
out into Space from deep in tube to the core
of Ceres that I explored.

With a thought and a frown
the flare gun then I face down
to the ground
to accelerate
me more at any rate
away from the rocky core
that I explored
by firing many flare rounds.

Firing a cool tool like a fool to accelerate at any rate

Post by secretnude » Sat Feb 08, 2014 12:37 am

I ran out of stock
of core
sample rocks that I bored
from Ceres' core
that I explored
to throw to accelerate
at any rate
away from Ceres' core
to the top of a vertical bore
hole to the surface
as low oxygen I face
due to a fabric rip
fixed with a tape strip.

I also ran out of flares
to signal and help accelerate
at any rate.

In despair,
since I am running
out of air,
I used my laser cutting
tool
pointing it downward and firing
like a fool
for any increase in the rate
I accelerate.

A Physics Problem expressed poetically

Post by secretnude » Sat Feb 08, 2014 1:37 am

I do wonder if anyone here
would like to do the computations
since this guy's survival, I fear
is under disputation.

In the rocky core
of Dwarf Planet Ceres the already weak
gravity is weaker
still
hence he could jump then fly at almost at will.

However, at any rate
will
he be able accelerate
fast enough reach the surface
from a polar vertical bore
400 Km deep so close to the core
as low oxygen he does face
in let us say 2 hours.

It might make some faces
dour
that I think
this guy's fate might truly stink.

Fail Whale (Alien) Planet Political Violence

Post by secretnude » Sat Feb 08, 2014 4:51 am

I belong to a prominent clan
on Tau Ceti and there was a plan
to decimate us biped Whale clan
to make a Mayoral election fail.

One day
the soothsayers failed to say
on the Mayoral Campaign trail
a hail
of bullets didn't fail to kill
most of my clan at will.

However our clan still plans
to field another candidate
as it is not yet to late
to win a pyrrhic victory.

A victory
due to Whale
sympathy vote
as we wail
our dead Whale
relatives on burning boats.

We wail
that our planet indeed is an epic fail.

(Alien) Mothership

Post by secretnude » Sat Feb 08, 2014 10:38 am

A Giant Ship in space
we recently faced
that was biologically grown
and flown
by a giant brain
that indeed strains
belief.

For us it was a big relief
that this ship
didn't slip
any of its weapons out
as we soon found out
it was a Pregnant Mothership
with a Babyship
that was just about to slip.

The Motherships' crew
were a friendly bunch
in my view.

We had lunch
in the belly of the Mothership
as its Babyship slipped.

The Babyship
stayed close to the Mothership
and Babyship was in shipshape form
as a good Spaceship Vet informed.

(Alien) Mothership was victim of Spaceship rape

Post by secretnude » Sat Feb 08, 2014 12:48 pm

Inside the once Pregnant Ship
that is quite hip
I asked about the Fathership
of the newborn Babyship.

Mothership
Captain then explained
with tears she could not contain
how they were the victim of ship rape
and that this Mothership
just barely escaped
alive
with her crew to survive.

The good Ship Vet
did vet
that the Mothership
and Babyship
are fine
as he drank some fine wine
while we dine
in the fine
belly of this once Pregnant Ship
that just let slip a healthy Babyship
that is quite hip.

The Babyship
is now for adoption, they let slip.

Be sure to keep the (Alien) Babyship on an Antimatter diet

Post by secretnude » Sat Feb 08, 2014 1:31 pm

The Mothership
Captain now explained
that the crew are symbiotic
to this exotic
Biological Mothership.

The Captain complained
that since the Ship
Pregnancy was unplanned
the Babyship
would be unmanned.

Babyship
would die soon
in a few Terran moons
if we don't adopt this Babyship
and keep it shipshape
and safe
from harm
and keep its engines warm.

I thought, why not? Babyship
I gain for a tiny fee
and it will soon grow big, you see.

I transferred some of my crew
from our Terran Battleship
to the Babyship
and hope not to screw
good health of the Babyship.

(Alien) Cyborg Bioship

Post by secretnude » Sat Feb 08, 2014 2:02 pm

I am now a Captain of a BioShip
that is quite hip
in the Cyborg Federation Fleet
and I feel leet.

Babyship
is now growing fast
at last with the right matter
and antimatter mix
that our engine crew fixed.

We upgraded our Babyship
with our hip
neurochip
to make the Galaxy's first Biological
and Technological
Hybrid Bioship Brain
with computing and storage capacity
that is a bit insane.

Computing and storage capacity
that we use
and hopefully this Babyship
don't view that as Childship abuse
since we keep this Babyship
well fed
and we don't want our Babyship
dead.

(Alien) Cyborg Bioship Fleet

Post by secretnude » Sat Feb 08, 2014 10:17 pm

Due to our excellent stewardship
of a newborn Bioship
the Alien Mothership
of that Bioship
and her some of her Sisterships
allowed us to gain ownership
of five more baby Bioships.

We now have a growing Bioship Fleet
and our first Babyship
is no longer bored
with other playful Bioships onboard
our growing Cyborg Biofleet
that keeps us on our feet.

This Cyborg Biofleet
indeed helps us defeat
our enemies with massively
parallel computing and storage
that massively
helps us when we engage
in our detailed on the fly tactical
and strategic
analysis of various options both tactical
and strategic.

Hip fun games for (Alien) Babyships

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 1:15 am

Tactical and strategic simulations are hip
fun games for our baby Bioships.

This should help us break the stalemate
and hopefully get us a checkmate
for our Cyborg Federation
against the Kilrat Dominion.

Sad that we have to resort
to using our Babyships
like this but I will report
that our Federation
Ships
have been able
to move deep
into Dominion
Territory and keep
this space under our control
with AI drones on patrol.

Casualties have been negligible
on the Federation
side compared to the Dominion
since we have backup brains
and Federation
battle experiences don't go down the drain.

An Ansible Link to monitor what (Alien) Babyships Think

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 4:27 am

The Mothership
of our lead Babyship
in our Cyborg Biofleet
expressed some curiosity
regarding our Neurochip Biofleet
enhancement and curiosity
also grew about our use of her Babyship.

We told the Mothership
that we take good care of the Babyships
and it is all fun and hip
games.

The Mothership
asked the Babyships
and the answer was the same.

We gave the Mothership
a neurochip
and an ansible
or an FTL Comm Link
to be able to monitor what her Babyships
think
about our use
and our possible abuse.

The Mothership
said she wanted more Babyships
to join our Biofleet.

(Alien) Mothership invites us to watch a Bioship Courtship

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 4:56 am

I was invited by the Mothership
Captain to observe a Bioship
Courtship
Ritual in their Home System
as we installed a Defensive Drone System
around this new member
of our Cyborg Federation.

The Membership
of this new member
was quickly approved by all member
races in our Federation
as per our tradition.

Membership
approval was hasty due
to a new
Kilrat Dominion
threat
to the Mothership's Home Planet.

A Ritual Bioship
Courtship
in the vacuum of space
our ship
sensors faced
and relayed
with only a small delay.

The Bioship Courtship
involved many displays
of maneuverability,
durability
and sexual ability.

(Alien) Bioship origins

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 5:26 am

Cosmic Rays
do graze
upon the naked skin
of the Bioships
and lifeforms that are kin
but Bioships
don't get sick
as quick
as Humans might
since these creatures are adapted
to naked space flight.

Adapted
so much
that such
Cosmic Rays
that graze
upon the naked skin
of Bioships
and their kin
are energy sources.

Energy sources
in the Bioship
Home System are abundant.

This abundance
has encouraged the evolution
of interplanetary beings
whose mode of being
is the harvest of radiation
from the stars.

Bioships
were domesticated by a biped race
and from here the symbiosis, we trace.

(Alien) Domesticated Bioship evolution

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 6:18 am

Domesticated Bioships
rely more
on endosymbotic technological
bipeds for more
of their biological
energy requirements.

Freedom from the requirement
to feed
meant the Domesticated Bioships
lost most
of their ability to independently feed
and consequently needed to host
Technological Biped Endosymbionts
otherwise survive, they don't

Endosymbionts
provide energy to Bioships
in various forms
and Matter- Antimatter reactor form
proved the most viable
and reliable.

Older Domesticated Bioships
have Fusion Reactors
and even Fission Reactors.

Newer Bioships
use Hawking Radiation
from a vaporizing microsingularity.

Microsingularities
are proton sized Black Holes
that vaporise whole
to release
Hawking Radiation
on which Bioships feast.

Status of Wild (Alien) Bioships in the Bioship System

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 6:57 am

Many 'Wild Bioships'
still exist but are outnumbered
by Domesticated Bioships
since Wild Bioships'
days were numbered
since the early days of reports
of Bioship Sexual Assault.

Bioship Sexual Assault
is often reported
in the outer fringes
of the Bioship Home System.

Biped Endosymbionts
in the Bioship Home System
have patrolled
the outer fringes
to control
Bioship Sexual Assault
that results
in unwanted pregnancies by Bioships.

Some say this enriches the Bioship
genome and helps promote diversity
despite the adversity
faced by the Bioship
and her endosymbionts
that don't
want to be told that this traumatic event
we shouldn't prevent.

(Alien) Genetics, Biocompatibility and misc facts

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 7:36 am

Bioship skin is black
that help absorb radiation back
as an energy source
like black
molds
discovered in the old
Chernobyl Nuclear Plant
on Terra
during an era
when Nuclear Fusion Plants
where still plans.

We have also discovered the precursor
ancestor
of most races
in the galaxy does trace
to a microbe that is DNA based
and a strong evidence of Panspermia,
we face.

Panspermia
means that the seeds
of life indeed
came from asteroids
ejected from cometary or asteroid impacts.

Impacts
that spread DNA based
life that proved able to interbreed
and many hybrids
we now face
indeed.

Just say no to Dilithium

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 8:13 am

I started with a jape
which is 'spaceship rape'
and ended in explaining out the jape
with a heavy dose of tape.

I wrote all of these on the fly
and in the sly.

How was that for Hard SciFi?

I explained away why
Aliens can interbreed
and how the Bioships indeed
can get energy from the stars.

I like Hard SciFi
as I don't see why
we can't have a good story
without gory
hard to believe elements.

Elements
like Dilithium
or unobtainium
or even machines
that don't come clean
as to how they work
but explaining takes work.

(Alien) Biological Ships in Outer Space mate after a date

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 10:54 am

I saw two Bioships mating
in space
and while watching
I had a red face.

It was a bit grating
to see a giant flexible hose
that I suppose
is the male
equipment dock
with a female orifice.

I know that the female orifice
unlocks
an inner airlock
after adequate penile stimulation
accomplished by a secure docking
situation.

An open airlock
then allows some fluids to flow
that I know
that has haploid male Bioship genes.

I can only compare
it if I dare
to watching Whale porn
as these giant Bioships
are naked as the day they were born.

(Alien) Bioship Gestation and Propulsion

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 09, 2014 12:40 pm

After almost a Terran hour of Bioship
coupling
the couple
uncoupled.

The flexible hose
that arose
from a Maleship
slit
retracted
back to the slit
from where it
came as it
contracted.

I heard Wild Bioships
use sublight plasma propulsion.

Domesticated Bioships
could be fitted with FTL propulsion.

The gestation
period of a Bioship
is typically three years
and I fear,
so much is required for the construction
of a Babyship.

A Babyship
is born via a flexible vaginal orifice
and has a nice
smooth skin
and it is striking
how much adult Bioship skin
is marked with micrometeorite strikes.
