Kris ran Battlestations
scenario he made up called "The Cake From Beyond." The crew of the UREF
frigate Precious Rhinestone
is tasked with delivering baking supplies to the famine stricken colony
of New Antarctica. Enroute they are redirected to investigate why
communication relay #3557A has stopped broadcasting. They arrive to
find the relay being molested by an energy consuming space blob. The
red pulsating blob then attacks the Precious
Rhinestone, draining it of energy.
The crew won
an overwhelming success by using a science probe to easily ask the
question, "Is the blob harmed by salt?" They then loaded salt from the
cargo bay into a missile and fired it into the blob.
We had a star party with Kris' 14" telescope. Objects: Supernova 2005cf, The Bug Nebula...
