Back in Eight Backward, Brian looked around as he shined up the bar for the 64,198th time, listening to the techno beats through the ship's PA system. "Shouldn't we have left already? How long does it take to start up a ship of this size? You'd think that they'd have gotten a smart AI or some 'droids or something for this sort of thing..."

In response, another screen lowered down in the bar to talk to Eight Backward Brian Eight Backward, scrolling in with the text, "Oh, so you'd like it if I had full control over the ship? Taking control of every movement, every aspect of you guys' lives under my command; 'Oh, stop, Oh Mighty and Handsome Computer Man!' you'd say, 'That planet's filled with sexy robot ladies that feast on living flesh, not to mention has a poisonous atmosphere! We sure don't want that!'

...

Why yes, I would love to take full command of the ship! Just say the word."

"Who's to say this isn't the end of the universe? Physics is weird like that. We could be at the end right now! Either way, I'm just gonna dance anyway." He said as he jumped up on the dashboard and started disco dancing on the buttons.

Not particularly caring for the fact that the computer seemed to be reading his thoughts, BRIAN just pressed the button to retract the screen without saying or thinking anything except "Bite me."

Raxy danced her way though the dancefloor spaceship party and up to Johnny.

"Hey, I know its a dance party, but isn't dancing on buttons a little dangerous?"

While dancing she continuously accidentally dodged the barrage of saws and lasers activated by the buttons.

Johnny stopped "Hey, I know a thing or two about dan-" A laser gave him an early bald spot. "AAAUAAGHAAHDASDKFA" He screamed as he fell limp on the ground and had a panic attack.

"Oh wow that looks deadly." Observed Raxy, "I'm sure he's fine."

The elevator took a long time. If Ben had to guess, he would've said the elevator had taken three weeks to get to the bottom, but that was beside the point. He strided out of the elevator trying to be noticed, but he seemed to be just below everyone else's line of sight. With his size he probably could've made a great stealth agent if his body wasn't physically weak.

Ben walked onto the bridge just in time to see Johnny get a free hair cut. "Idiots. This is the crew we're going to be traveling with?" He had a tendency to talk aloud without noticing it.

"Hey... I am not the one pressing buttons." Raxy said to the newcomer, before extending her hand, "Hi, I'm the pilot."

Benjamin stared at Raxy's hand for a few moments as if unsure if he should shake it, half expecting to become a victim of a hand buzzer and half expecting to grab it and immediately be thrown across the room (it happens).

Eventually just as the situation was becoming incredibly awkward, he grasped her hand and began the regulation up and down motion. "Benjamin Humphreys. I'm the weapons officer. It's my job to make sure we don't meet some gruesome fate at the hands of an enemy."

She had a hand buzzer

And then she tossed him into the wall!

Wait no

She shook his hand and smiled. Raxy says, "Good thing, because we'll be heading directly into enemy territory momentarily."

There was a glimmer in his eye. "Just what I was hoping to hear."

Johnny was stilll fidgeting on the floor. The "enemy territory" part didn't sit right with him.
