This is my entry for the Mr.Bones Spooky Spring contest.
I have done a GAIA theme, and the Spring part really comes from the stardate in which the derelict ship was found and its name and color scheme...
About this creation
Tanya Roberts and her mother, test GAIA's first fighter to be equipped with an FTL drive, and when they arive at their destiniation, something has gone wrong. Checking her instruments, Tanya realises they have jumped into an unknown dimension of space!
As they approach the seemingly derelict ship, they are eerily hailed in to land by a crackly communique which seems to be possessed of as much static and curious high pitched wailing, as speech. Tanya lands her fighter, even after identifying the ship as the long lost 'Persephone's Bee', the human ship which dissapeared at the beggining of the first Alien War.
The women explore the seemingly deserted vessel, failing to find any clues of inhabitation. The hanger is empty, and the several rooms they check are dark and cold. They head to the bridge, determined the computers may hold some answers, puzzled still, as to the hail which they had recieved.
Upon arriving at the bridge, mother and daughter discover the Captain seems to be seated at the helm, and upon approach, they discover something.
I have to say, that line "In space, no one hears you scream." has a strange effect on me, almost as if I can picture it. Maybe I had a dream... Ok, enough creepiness already! Still the same greatness we've all come to expect, awesome!
Persephone's Bee? Like the band? HAHAHA, great name, you also reminded me of the that old Bay Area band, I liked them. Anyway, Bones looks like caca, get that lad to a barber toot suite! Great ship my friend, that is what really catches the eye. Love the shape and the colors. Now if you want to know what Bones would really fly, it would have to a black and red ship, that new blood red. Cheers!
