Webcomic P0005 – Straight Outa Brompton

So, not just a case of ‘Ladies and Gentlemen we are floating in space’. Max is seemingly on his way purposefully, to somewhere! And anywhere seems preferable at this moment in time.

Space Station Brompton 1 is the first of the Space Stations (no there aren’t specifically 5 with the first four mysteriously having had things happen to them. Although there’s a plot idea!). It is a Level 3 Space Station (that’s to say a smallish structure), set in the Intero system. I’ll expound more about the systems later, as the story develops.

So, from the safety of a Level 3 Space Station, with all the comforts of a home, his consignment loaded, Max checks the ship’s computer

“Schrödinger, confirm clearance code for Space Station Brompton 1 departure”.
“Departure code AV-iN-@L@-UGI-I confirmed from BISCORP”.
“So, the problem is?”.
“Brompton 1 security detain procedure in effect”.
“Detain? Sounds serious”.
“It is!”.
“Then get us out of here, now!”.

Without a clue as to why has to leave (with his tail between his legs)

Ejected from, max is.

Webcomic P0004 – Earlier…

Some time earlier…

So here we see Space Station Brompton 1 (or SSB-1 as it is lovingly designated). This is where Max was some time earlier. He was relaxing ‘off-ship’, taking a drink in one of the many bars on SSB-1 and stocking up on his favourite snacks. However, the main reason he was here was to load up on a consignment of goods – biscuits to be precise. A staple of the known universe.

This is what Max does. As an intergalactic haulage contractor he traverses the systems of known space, transporting goods from here to there or from there to here. Hey, it’s a living!

It’s what happens next that jump starts our story.
