A sleek blue starship, bearing the label "Planet Express," glides gracefully over a vast, futuristic metropolis. Suddenly, it swerves and crashes into an enormous video screen, crashing out the other side. Now wildly out of control, the ship spirals downward before impacting the roof of a small building. The nose and cockpit of the ship now hang through the ceiling of an unassuming bar.

A hatchway in the ship opens, and the patrons of Ten Forward tumble out haphazardly, landing in a heap.

From within the ship, a female voice says, "Sorry. I don't have good depth perception."

Ensign Edwards--now inexplicably clad in a white lab coat, thick glasses, and slippers--scrambles out of the pile and holds up his arms. "Good news, everyone!" he declares. "We have arrived in the wondrous world of the year 3010!"

In the background, a rather dramatic voice declares, "Welcome to the world of tomorrooooow!"

Grumbling slightly, the Ten Forward regulars come to their feet and survey the bar. Aside from a few unfamiliar sights--such as a lobster-like creature gorging on a bucket of krill in one corner--it feels like home. The captains' items are there; as is Riker's trombone. Pink2 and RoboCup are present, though RoboCup emits more steam than usual as a certain bending robot flirts with Pink2.

The Ten Forward patrons take their seats. Ensign Edwards requests a Slurm from the bartender.

EE you look funny in those glasses. *gigglesnortchuckle*

Hey, a rock lobster. Coolness. I guess I'll have a Virgin Texas Peachfuzz and whatever yummy treats there are in 3010. Let the show begin!!!

Uh, Barbara... it's best not to consort with Zoidberg.

They just did.

Bu-bu-but... they can't.

Maybe that's why I was so unimpressed with the original Iron Man. :P

Oh, pish tosh, you don't like anything awesome. :rolleyes:

Yes, we were. You were welcome to join in if you had wanted. You saw I was online. And I'm sure you knew Clark was online, too. Just assume we were talking. :upsidedown:

I assumed that were you to talk, you would use the conversation in place that already had all three of us in it.

*trekkin' tumbles out of the mass of bodies.* Hmmm?? Everything is so...2D...*She rubs her eye*
Hey...what the? Well..one eye explains the 2D...no depth perception. I wonder if this is a flashback from all that acid I did in the '80's??

The rocket launch was super cool! Only 3 hit the water. It was very windy out. I gotta say, I was very impressed!

I like plenty of awesome things. Like, say, Warcraft Orcs. And Futurama. And Lord of the Rings.

And for the record, I didn't hate the original Iron Man. I just thought it was kinda underwhelming.

No, I love all awesome things. Odds are, if I don't love it, it's not awesome. :P
I used to have a better shifty-eye smiley that I got from a different forum, and could have sworn I'd saved it somewhere on my comp, but I couldn't find it and had to settle for subpar but still effective other smiley. The first smiley was more paranoid.
I do have this awesome Venom instead. Enjoy.

Because shunning Zoidberg is just something that comes naturally, like the sun rising, or Calculon giving an Oscar-worthy performance that brings tears to my eyes.

Terilynn transports into the bar along with YER, Riker and Riker.

Sorry, I don't travel well in ships that have depth perception problems.

She looks around the joint as is pleased to see that the Captains' belongings and the juke box have made the trip intact.

EE is always good about bringing the essentials. Thanks for getting everyone here EE!

She notices a large lobster in the corner gorging on a bucket o'krill.

C'est la vie.

I haven't seen either - which is bad, considering they were both filmed near my house. I really should support films filmed in NM.

I've been away too raptor. I'm tired. you?

Oh, in case anyone was worried, I now have the correct allergy medicine which doesn't expire until 2012 - which works out, since the world's coming to an end then anyway. Posted Image

I have eaten a thin bagel, an orange and now some popcorn. So far so good (I've been a little ill lately.) I think I got a little dose of eColi...

Okie dokie...I am officially tired and I haven't even made dinner.

It is going down to like 35º tonight. WTF??? It was that cold last night. Enough of this New England weather already!

TL...don't tell me you were in CT...I'll scream!! Oh...I've been to Mohegan Sun, now...so you have to meet me there! (It kinda sucks...but they MUST have a spa...if not, I know that Foxwoods does!)

My daughter just stomped away from my aged...old i-Mac complaining that it is "not working"!! It is just slow. What can I tell her. She is trying to create something fantastic in photoshop.

Alrighty then...

Wait, what's a thin bagel? Well, I can kinda figure that one out, but I mean I haven't seen or heard of this. Have I been under a rock or is this something new? Posted Image

I can't remember why, but last week Clark and I moved to a private conversation thingy. But if you want to talk, by all means, start talking.

Where is Raptor ? Here is Raptor. He was on the road again...


Raptor! Helloooo...

My parents keep trying to make me eat. My stomach hurts. I'm not eating. It's almost to the point of conflict.


For the past two days my parents have been making me eat. Then they get mad if I leave food on my plate. They tried to feed me some coconut-marinated chicken...I hate coconut...so it just made me feel even more sick. Now I feel a little better; I might even down some grits.

Feel better soon, Frooty!
