Bad Vibrations 12/4

The scoops did end up falling off.

Let me guess, the ship got sent to the opposite side of the galaxy, and they have to find an uncharted hospitable planet to live in? :D

I kinda got confused at what happened.

If I might be of assistance in the issue:

The Ion Scoops create a magnetic field, which collects particles from space for fuel. When the kid accelerated, it started sweeping up more particles than the scoops could bring in at once; the ship collected a "tidal wave" of charged ions in front of it (an artificial ion storm) and then punched through it (final panel, the eddies) right as it passed The Battleship. Ion Storm + Battleship = Zap. Ion Storm + Rebel Cry = Pieces falling off
It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men. - attributed to Samuel Adams

“To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.” - Richard Henry Lee

Of course, what would otherwise be a stupid accident is going to be passed off a brilliant escape strategy...

And thus Captain James Walker and the Rebel Cry shall pass into legend...

Especially if the ion storm scrambles the circuits of the Super Big-Bad-Battleship (tm). He's going to be in serious trouble if those were the ion scoops falling off, though. I doubt he has enough fuel on board already to last long.

I wonder if you can scoop ions in hyperspace...?

If they weren't the ion scoops, then they were covers. (They might be just the external hatches that had been opened to allow the collected ions inside. It would have been easy for the violent forces to rip those off.)

Canis, I'd say the "lightning" was an electrical discharge due to unequal charges in the collected particle mass.

Sorry, no warp. But that battleship is going to have a hard time tracking him for a while.

Hey, they were in an impossible position and they got out of that position by one who did not know it was impossible so he went out and did it. Or in other words they were flat out lucky..... :)

They'll stop in a restaurant first. (Actually, I'm not sure what you're referencing.)

Hm, I hope that the audience trio here doesn't mean to imitate "Beavis and Butt-Head." They're rather young to have watched it back when it was still popular.

That was a semi-reference to Star Trek Voyager, with the exception that they really wouldn't want to go back to their home systems.

Or maybe Lost in Space?

Anyone giving odds on the battleship crew (or just Fleet HQ) deciding this was some "brilliant tactial maneuver" and/or they'd been led into a trap?

There is nothing so dangerous to the seasoned combat veteran than a complete neophyte who has no idea what he "can't" do.

That makes three of us! Thank goodness that Genevieve Bujold wimped out. I doubt that she would have handled the character very well.

Perhaps "Voyager non-hater" would be more apt. I myself somehow found the show more watchable than TOS. I must be weird.

Call me a heretic, but I started watching an episode of the TOS, and I had to stop, because I was afraid I would die of an OD on cheesiness.

Well, that and my Mom wanted to watch the news. :roll:

Anyway, the point is, I walked away absolutely, certainly knowing why Star Trek was cancelled the first time around, and wondering how it ever got revived at all.
