The Signal

Zenith5S319

“Well Captain Williams, we are the first Earth ship to reach 300 light years and we still haven’t found any life yet.”

“Have you detected anything, anything?”

“Yes sir, an analog radio wave. But, there is lot interference…”

“Clear it up?”

 

“Welcome to the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany.”

Planet Hell

06-02-volcano

 

“Captain, that volcano is about to blow. We have to get off of this planet, now!”

“Shields are at 5%?”

“The FTL’s are offline. It’ll take 30 minutes to reboot!”

Magma rained down on the ship.

 

“Joey, how many times have I told you not to play with my blowtorch?”

The Swarm

My laser is empty. I have nothing left but this stick.

I shouldn’t have gotten in the water without my shoes, I can feel them nibbling at my toes.

“Joey, how many times have I told you not to put the goldfish in the tub when you take a bath!”

Adam…

“Damage report?”

“Captain, the wormhole dropped us off 80,000 light-years from home world. We are the only crew left alive.”

“Is that planet habitable?”

“Yes”

“Since we can’t go home I suggest we start a new, improved human race, here.”

“Captain, I’m a transgender female. We are on our own.”

In the Mirror

blueskin alien

 

I’ve been on Earth for five years now. I’m getting home sick, but I have a job to do.

I look at my face in the mirror and only see my transformation. I miss my blue skin and my cute antennas.

Time for another injection, earth girl. What a pity.

 

Second skin

blue skin

“Tapping day will be here in two days, son and you must be ready.”

“But, I like who I am and I like the skin I’m in. Why do I have to change now?”

“You’re just getting a second skin.”

“Blue skin? I don’t want to look like everyone else.”

Dead Man’s Dream

future-soldier

I’m not going to cut this grass today, probably not tomorrow. I am going to sit here and finish off this cooler of beer and watch the sun come up and go down. This is the life…

“What happened soldier?”

 

“Joe took a laser blast to the head, he’s dead.”
