When Ace Pilots Faint

Avon was on his way to the flight deck when he suddenly heard the noise and the nervous voices. Rushing around the corner, he found Blake and Vila carrying an obviously unconscious Jenna to the medical unit. Without hesitation, Avon joined them to took his share of the burden. You couldn’t count much on Vila’s strength to carry a body, not even that of a slender woman like Jenna.

‘What happened?’ Avon asked while they rushed through the door of the medical unit.

‘She passed out on the flight deck’, Blake reported, ‘one moment I was talking to her, the next moment she was out cold.’

Avon sent a querying look to Vila. The thief just nodded.

‘Let’s place her on the bed’, Avon commanded, and then he suddenly exclaimed, ‘What the heck is that thing doing on the bed?’

‘Oh, I’m sorry’, Blake apologised and put away the container with the explosives. Avon did not ask what they were doing in the medical unit. Blake had a habit of leaving his gear behind at the most unsuitable places. But that was not the problem at hand.

Together, they finally managed to place Jenna on the bed. She moved her head and groaned silently. Possibly she would come around in the next moment.

‘Someone should be on the flight deck’, Avon suggested, ‘and get Cally!’

Neither Blake nor Vila objected. A moment later, Avon was alone with Jenna, holding her hand firmly as if he could bring her back to consciousness just by the strength of his grip. They had never been so close since their imprisonment in Space World. With a sigh, she finally opened her eyes.

‘What - ?’ she asked, obviously confused about her whereabouts.

‘You passed out’, Avon informed her in that silken voice he reserved for special moments.

‘Ah, yes’, she smiled, ‘yes, I remember. Oh dear! I fainted. Am I really that old-fashioned?’ She did not seem to take her condition seriously.

‘What happened?’ Avon asked, ‘was it a discharge from the instruments? A local malfunction of the inertia dampers? Or some ... medical condition that we should know about?’

She shook her head and giggled. ‘No, nothing like that’, she answered, ‘it was completely harmless. As I said, an old-fashioned thing. I only ever read about that in bad novels. Never thought it could happen in reality. I simply passed out because of the shock of surprise.’

‘Surprise?’

‘When I entered the flight deck’, Jenna explained, ‘you know, after all these years ... Blake actually complimented me on my dress!’

Hugbot...laughed out loud! Thank you for cheering me up.
Just had my first day on a course to refresh my skills in Customer care, dealing with computers and EPOS systems...yeah, as if I haven't done that for the last 30 years. So now I can have a smile on my face tomorrow, have a chance to think of a story for this prompt and the others as well. Oh happy days.
Thank you Huggy!!!!

Avon asked, "What happened?"

Blake replied, "We were discussing which course to take to Del 10. She laid out the advantages and disadvantages of each. It was all a bit over my head, really, so I told her, 'Take the one you think makes the most sense, you're the pilot after all, I trust your judgement.'"

Blake sighed. "And that's when she fainted."


(Huggy - Great minds and all that)
 
Hugbot
@LS: Thank you; I am always glad to be of mirth making services! Good luck with your course!

@Brad: Great to see transatlantic telepathy at work again! And while I nearly used up the 500 words, you told the story in a nutshell.

@Brad

Hahaha!! Short and to the point. Excellent. Grin

@Hugbot

The explosives on the bed. Blake the absent-minded leader. Grin
Avon actually being concerned! And getting everyone else out of the room. Haha!
 
Lurena
@ Hugbot, great fun! But also a nice reference to the spirit of the time in which Blake's 7 was created. I mean, Jenna wondering and doubting herself: "Am I really that old-fashioned?"
This is exactly what I had in mind when I created the artwork:
Mr Nation designed Jenna to be a groundbreaking character, a self-assured and independant woman. Not the at that time still usual damsel in distress.
But we all noticed the struggle and defeat...
Perhaps Sally Knyvette had thoughts alike "am I really that old-fashioned" when she had to play Jenna who only had to sit at the teleport console intead of being involved in a adventurous action scenes.
So thank you for that particular sentence and your story!

@ Brad, you know that I admire your much-info-in-a-few-words skill.
Thanks for the fun!

(I wasn't able to log in to react to every fan contribution in July, but I have read them all and enjoyed all of it, thank you, Well Done!)

Great stories Huggy and Brad. Nicely ironic!

Personally, I blame Huggy.......................

A Mix Too Far


“What the hell happened?” Avon demanded to know as he, Vila and Blake struggled with the unconscious form of Jenna.
“She was overcome by the fumes,” Blake explained, laying the explosive’s container carefully on the floor and then helping the others place Jenna on the medical unit bed.
“Fumes? What fumes?”
“From the gunk they’re making down there.”
Vila looked at Jenna, unconscious, a peaceful visage on her face, “Crumbs, it must have been strong!”
“Oh believe me,” Blake said matter-of-factly, “It was.”

Cad walked around the vat, its contents happily bubbling away.
“And you’re sure that they touched nothing?”
“Absolutely,” the small man replied.
“So why were they here, Bury?”
“No idea. The woman just collapsed as I was showing her the second vat.”
“Show me.”
Bury led Cad to the vat.
“So they just suddenly appeared and said…” Cad began.
“That they were from the Quality Assurance Inspectors. There had been complaints.”
“From whom? The elite wouldn’t dare complain. This is their reward for loyalty; their taste of luxury.”
A strange sound made Cad stop in mid stride. He looked into the vat beside him and watched as the pink goo heaved and burped.
“It was the next one which made her faint; the chocolate one. I did my best…”
“You’re best? What were the others doing?”
“I…I don’t know.”
Suddenly Cad spotted the small, round wheel of metal attached to the vat; slowly counting down.
“Get out of here! Now!”
They only made it as far as the last vat as the others exploded and covered the production area with a mass of coloured goo.
Only the last vat escaped destruction, but still some of its contents rained down on Cad and Bury.
“Oh no!” Cad cried out.
“Sir, at least we have something to give to the elite…don’t we?”
“Are you mad? It’s the coffee ones...”
“And?”
“They only feed those to the prisoners who refuse to co-operate! We are doomed!”
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.

Lovely, funny story, Little Sue - I also love the names! Picture prompt, pink goo prompt AND a new installment of the Revels Rebels series .... great!
By the way, I deny any responsibility. Oops
 
Lurena
Who is to blame?

Littlesue, you know how much I like your humour! Keep the series rolling!

Anyone else inspired? A dark story perhaps?

The attack on the communication centre on Kendra was not going well. They had been spotted before they had been able to place the magna bombs and in the ensuing hostilities, Jenna had succumbed to a stun shot: worrying enough but even more worrying was the fact that something had happened to Zen, preventing them from teleporting back to safety. After a garbled moment when it's voice rose to a pitch that in a human might be designated hysterical, it had abruptly gone off line and refused to respond to any orders or requests. Their bracelets were dead, communication with the ship impossible.

So now they were running through corridors, lugging Jenna's unconscious form with them, keeping just ahead of the pursuing security guards, desperately hoping that Gan or Cally might find a solution to Zen's problem. Then Jenna moaned and stirred and as if by magic, the computer was back on line, and the sparkles of the teleporter field claimed them all.

"I'm sorry Jenna, but that's the way it has to be from now on unless Avon can find a way to break this attachment between you and Zen. We can't have Zen immobilising himself every time you get knocked out. No more away missions for the foreseeable future."

Blake wasn't a coward, but he'd had enough sense to deliver his news from the door of Jenna's cabin, so she'd only got in one glancing blow with her shoe before he'd managed to escape, although her stream of invective followed him all the way back to the flight deck.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.
 
Lurena
Thank you Annie!
I love to see the attachment Jenna-Zen again.
And then there is your sound argument about why Jenna got degraded and condemned to the teleport console. Well done!

Excellent, Annie. The Jenna-Zen connection is something I often think about, and you've used it as a plausible reason for Jenna being relegated to teleport duty forever. And I loved the last line, made me LOL.

Exactly my thoughts. It was very interesting to see a completely different take on the picture at last!
