CAPTAIN'S LOG SOLVES ANCIENT MYSTERY.
Documents discovered in personal effects
of pre-warholian pilot’s remains shed
light on age-old Salvage Ship mystery.
Until recently, historians have been at a
loss to adequately explain how the Salvage vessels
(see Crankenstein) could traverse the varied
landscapes of their designated pickup locations.
Intergalactic/planetary travel was in no
way hindered by their massive weight due
to the weightlessness of space. Once on the
ground however, it was very different.
The SS 396 Salvage Ships ships were heavy and difficult to maneuver.
No amounts of coffee and tobacco products
could entice the meat motors to attempt to
reach the higher elevations where most of
the precious payloads were harvested.
The journal belonging to a 500 year old
veteran of the invasions led our field researchers
to a site in the Northeast 02048 sector.
(Insert whip story here) The apparent remains of a
previously unseen vehicle that was commonly used by more skilled
pilots and meatmotors to gather payloads from the
extremely high elevations was reported to have been uncovered. These teams would then
deliver them to central pickup locations in the
valleys so the Salvage Ships could be loaded
and continue on their route.
The only enticement that the pilots could offer the special breed of
of meat-motor that would be willing to scale these elevations was to agree
to turn control of the vessel over to the meat-motor during the
It was clear that the meat motors had no particular knowledge
of the purpose of the run nor would they care.
The only aspect that interested them at all was the blinding and
totally reckless thrills encountered during the descent.
The pilots would simply power down and keep their circuits crossed
during the return trip to the valley.
