About this creation
LIU Galaxy News - I


Note: The corresponding dialogue is below each picture.


Narrator: “Welcome to the Ludgonian Industrial Union's TV2 Galaxy News.”




Spiffy: “Hello Folks! I’m Spiffy Thompson.”
Hotty: “And I’m Hotty McBabe.”
In Unison: “Welcome to Galaxy News!”



Spiffy: "Today's top story, the star Nitesco is doomed."




Spiffy: "Nitesco, long known to be reaching the final stages of its life, is expected to supernova later this week. The massive energy bursts resulting from this event will destroy the entire Nitesco Solar System. For more information on this explosive event, we turn to Field Reporter Kuti Pi. Kuti, what can you tell us about the Nitesco explosion?"




Kuti: "Hi Spiffy! I'm here on Nitesco's only inhabited planet, Fortido. Fortido, which is expected to be destroyed any day now, is home to small underground lab. Joining me is Evacuation Specialist Victor Hurm. How are you sir?"




Victor: "Wow, seriously. You're wearing that? This whole planet is being bathed in radiation from the nearby dying star, and you're wearing that. You're going to go blind and skin is going to start falling off any minute now."
Kuti: "Hehe. You think I'm cute don't you?"
Victor: "Sigh. Let's just get this over with. I don't want your skin to start dripping on my new shoes."




Kuti: "Aww. That's so nice. So Victor, boy, it's getting a little hot in here, uh...what...uh, Spiffy, why am I here?"
Spiffy: "You're going to ask Victor about the evacuation."
Kuti: "Oh yeah. So tell me about this evacuation Victor."
Victor: "Well, as you said, this entire planet is going to be destroyed by the upcoming Supernova. To prevent any losses, the LIU has issued Evacuation Order #8898."
Kuti: "So you're going to rescue all the residents?"
Victor: "What? Oh no, not the people. We are evacuating all the valuables from the lab. If we have time later, we'll come back and rescue all the copper pipes from inside, then maybe the some of the wiring, then the flooring tiles. When all the valuables are gone, we may have time to save a few people."
Kuti: "Well guys, you heard it here first, no valuable items are going to be lost in the disaster. In other news, I'm now blind. Back to you."




Hotty: "Hehe. I hope you brought some suntan lotion Kuti. The impending Supernova will damage more than just the Nitesco System. For more on this, we go to our Space Weather Expert Swete Lipps."




Swete: "Geez, I hope Kuti brought enough suntan lotion! What? You already made that joke? Uh, I hope she brought some aloe. What? Not funny? Oh, enough playful banter? Oh OK."




Swete: "There are four other stars in Nitesco's local star group. Cuspis, Nitesco closest neighbor, can expect to be destroyed in about three months when the Supernova's shock wave finally arrives. When the shock wave reaches Liathium, it is expected to have lost most of its energy. So, I've predicted that the Liathium System will me mostly deadly in six months, and partly deadly after that. The Pershesk System is just far enough away to the escape damage. Back to you!"




Spiffy: "We'll be right back after these messages!"




"Sick of school? Tired of the office? Well, head to one of the LIU's Super Farms and become a Field Laborer. Have fun while you sow your cash crop!"
*Labor is not fun. Money not included.




Narrator: "Welcome back to LIU TV2 Galaxy News!"




Spiffy: "Experts agree, the loss of Nitesco and Cuspis will not affect any of the LIU's economic interests, but the same can't be said for the possible loss of the Liathium System. For more on this story, we go to our Economic Correspondent Grogan Sithers. Grogan?"




Groogar: "My name is Groogar you pathetic human! I will kill your whole family and eat them! Uh, um, sorry. Anyway, I'm here on the Factory World of Vookar, which orbits Liathium. The factories on Vookar are one of the largest producers of Fuel Cells in the galaxy. The loss of the planet could temporarily cripple the LIU's energy production."




Spiffy: "What steps are being taken to prevent this catastrophe?"
Groogar: If you interrupt me again Spiffy, I will tear off your face and wear it as my underwear. Anyway, the blast wave from the Supernova won't reach this planet for six months, giving engineers plenty of time to construct huge shield generators. The automated factories should not be affected by the residual radiation. Now leave me alone!"




Hotty: "Oh that Grogan. He sure is a nice guy. Well, in more upbeat news, the brief and unproductive revolution on the planet Jasucent has come to an end. For more on this story, we go to Field Reporter Cindy Cyclops."




Cindy: "Am I too close to the camera? My depth perception is off. Oh what? We're on? Uh, yes. I'm Cindy Cyclops here in the middle of this empty field. Right now, senior military officials are meeting with the leaders of the brief revolution."




Cindy: "Officials believe these talks will be short and should end abruptly."




Cindy: "Most of the leaders of the revolution had no comment, and the few that did, could not be heard over the loud crying in the background. It's another victory in keeping the Union united. Back to you!"




Spiffy: "While most problems can be solved with violence, sometimes all you need is a big smile and lots of money."




Spiffy: "Today, LIU Ambassadors signed a trillion dollar contract and treaty with the KinPump Empire. The KinPump Empire, which control one hundred stars in the Guspem Galaxy, will receive five hundred capital ships in return for cash and the use of their interstellar routes."




Spiffy: "The deal means big money for the LIU, but has put the LIU at odds with the other empires in the Guspem Galaxy. These empires released a joint statement in which they stated, 'The KinPump Empire is a known terrorist group and we are disgusted by the LIU's behavior. In order to counter this threat, we will have to buy at least twice the amount of LIU Capital Ships."




Hotty: "We'll back with more after the break."




"Want to do your part to help the LIU? Sign up at any of the local Expansion Offices and get shipped off the outer rim of the LIU Galaxy. Workers are needed right now! See the universe, work hard, and expand the Union, join up today!"




"We're doing our part!"




"Can't relocate? Well you can still do your part! Reproduction strengthens the Union. So get to it!"




Hotty: "Welcome back. In entertainment news, Terrance McDoogal spent the day in court after firing a Crap Cannon into Lacunar Urbs A. For more on this story, we go live to Busty Pillows."




Busty: "Just moments ago, Doog was escorted out of a Lacunar Urbs court room. Doog was acquitted of his Attack Against the LIU charge, which would have lead to his execution, but pleaded guilty to Disturbing the Peace, which will net him another month in the Muspell Minimum Security Prison."




Busty: "Doog do you have any comments?"
Doog: “No comments, but let me just get a look at those. Wow. I know what's getting me through another month in prison."




Spiffy: Well folks, that's it for this time. Join us on occasion for more Galaxy News!"

Note:
Galaxy News is an attempt to enhance the previous LIU News Broadcast seen below.


Original TV2 News
We believe we succeeded.

The robot arms and the whole assembly line looked really good. It would be cool to see Doog visit a ship or aircar factory...

If only Kuti had interviewed Doog, then he would of gotten exactly what he wanted. Also, the guy in the agriculture commerical looked like him... Was community service part of his sentence? :/

LOL! This really does add to the LIU series! And, in a universe like the LIU, a trillion billion dollars wouldn't even be a great deal!(mind you, the KinPump empire is terrorist, so they just got ripped off!(suckers xD)

I've noticed that one of your most amazing techniques is the letters you create on signs/ screens/billboards and things like that, with tiles. I'm working on a project right now that I want to include some of that in. Do you have any pointers or tips? Anyways, thanks, and fantastic work, as always!

"I will tear your face off and wear it as my underwear." If that line doesn't deserve a MOCie award, I don't know what would. Best One Liner perhaps? Great builds, great flow. Reminds me somewhat of Starship Troopers propaganda. Excellent work!

That's some fast-paced and cut-throat journalism. When I was reading Kuti Pi's name, I kept sayin' Cootie Pie. I can't seem to say Cutie Pie. Oh well. It's violent, but the annihilation in the fields is "funny" ... Amazing MOC!

Quoting Jeff Fauble But does improving the news broadcast turn a profit in any way? I don't see how that makes the LIU any richer.
It enhances the power of the LIU's propaganda, which in the long run makes more money. Or something like that.

Very funny! Just read all of the Atlas series last week (before joining). I do feel sorry for Doog though...they never told him the cannon wasn't aimed properly!

Everything in this moc was great. Too bad for Doog though but he had it coming. Also, too bad for the Nitesco Star System. :(
