Starfarer: Blockade by AbaKon Starfarer: Blockade by AbaKon
At the edge of the Tau Ceti system, Commander Thorian banks Starfarer through the upper fringes of a gas giant en route to a rendezvous with the Police Cruiser Albatross for customs inspection. Meanwhile, First Officer Pa-Kur accidentally ejects the cargo module and watches helplessly as it tumbles toward certain destruction below. When asked by the Captain of the Albatross why he didn't catch it with a tractor beam, Pa-Kur explained that the tractor beam was temporarily off-line for repairs (which had since been completed).

Those zany rascals! You never know what the crew of the Starfarer will be up to next!

I knew it was a mistake to put the "Cargo Jettison" button right next to the "Latte" button!

Hey, how come there are no other replies? You'd think that you 'n I were the only ones who'd heard of the "Starfarer"?!??!

Great shot - love the background and atmospherics - not to mention the speed lines and lens flares :D The Ericsson/MacArthur as the Albatross is a nice choice, though the fact I keep seeing Zap Brannigan's ship in my mind is just a testament to my Futurama addiction. I guess that's the Starfarer I, as II was a GP#2 hull.

Actually, I have gotten a few comments indicating that the exploits of the Starfarer are gathering a bit of a following here! I guess people know a good thing when they see it.

As to Zap, I can't help but agree.
