The Girls From Alcyone II: Vengeance
This Week: Oh, it's so exciting! In this scene, a mysterious fighter craft plummets out of control toward the surface of a mysterious world (it's all very mysterious). Will the pilot survive this plunge to certain death? Who is she? What is she up to? I don't know!!
The engines of the aging Junco fighter sputtered to life, only to die once again. Five more alarms sounded in the small cockpit. Brilliant ambers and reds blazed across the pilot's heads-up-display, very nearly blinding her in the process. The ground was rushing up quickly now, all too eager to greet the freely-tumbling fighter-craft.
"Shit," the pilot said.
"Did you try the choke?" an infuriatingly-calm voice said over the com. "Maybe we can give you a jump start—a good, old-fashioned push."
"Not now, Chloe—I'm a little busy."
"And no crashing my fighter. I'm not at all happy about what you did to my carrier."
"If you crash, I'm going to make you go back to calling me Admiral—or Commodore. Er, something important sounding!"
The pilot rolled her eyes, unseen behind the shining and mirrored faceplate of her helmet. "I'll see you on the ground, Chloe."
