September 2018 Ficlet Challenges
Virgo is symbolised by the maiden. In Greek mythology, this is commonly Astraea who was the last immortal to abandon Earth at the end of the Silver Age, when the gods fled to Olympus – hence the sign's association with Earth.

The word prompt this month is … EARTH

The planet or the substance of the land? Will we go back to the domes or revisit Gan’s death?

For the second prompt:

A member of the crew mysteriously disappears.

Why? How? What happens next? What is the impact on the rest of the crew?

Avon was awoken from his sleep. He reached out for his teddy bear, then realised it was many years since he’d lost Roj.

He checked the time. He’d been asleep for less than three hours. He normally slept much better than that. What had awoken him?

He then felt it. A slight movement. That never happened on Liberator. He put on his studded jacket and headed for the flight deck.


There was something different. The flight deck was slightly darker than usual. And somehow there was a missing sound. Avon couldn’t quite put his finger on it.

One sound not missing was Vila’s snoring. He was supposed to be on night-watch.

“Idiot, wake up”, barked Avon.

“Er… what?” said Vila somewhat groggily. Avon could smell the alcohol on his breath.

“Liberator is making slight course movements.”

“Is it? Well ask Zen, then.”

Avon and Vila turned to face Zen.

But Zen was missing.

Vila spotted the adhesive yellow note, on the wall where Zen was usually located. He walked up to it and read it aloud: “Gone on fishing trip for a couple of weeks. Left Orac in charge. Love, Zen. Kiss, kiss, kiss. I’m giving up alcohol – I think I’m hallucinating.”

Avon walked over to Orac. He put in the key.

“Orac, explain what you’ve done to Zen.”

“I teleported Zen onto the surface of Gardinos as we were passing it.”

“Why is the Liberator moving about more than usual? That never happens with Zen.”

Orac was offended. “I would remind you that I am the superior computer system. I am more than capable of steering the Liberator.”

“And what if we encounter Federation Pursuit Ships?”

Vila patted Avon on his shoulder. Avon hated when Vila did that. “Stop worrying, Avon. We’ve got Orac and we’ve got Tarrant, who reminds us often enough of how good a pilot he is. What could possibly go wrong?”


Zen was on the third day of his fishing holiday. He decided to buy a newspaper to catch up events around the galaxy.

Suddenly, the front-page headline caught his eye. “LIBERATOR DESTROYED AFTER CRASHING STRAIGHT INTO THE EARTH.”

“Whoops”, he exclaimed.

Thanks Travisina. Just made a slight edit, because it just struck me that I could tie it into both prompts.
Great TT, loved it. Missed the last couple of these... that post was ideal to come back to :-)

Running a little late...but I have been on holiday. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!!

“Where’s Avon?” Blake asked.
“He said something about seeing ‘what Vila has done now’ and went off,” Jenna replied absently.
“Did he say where?”
“No. He just seemed a bit preoccupied.”
“He passed me in the corridor,” Gan said, entering the Flight Deck, “Mumbled something about Vila messing things up.”
“Which corridor?”
“The one leading to the main computer room. He’s never forgiven me for wrecking the components there when I had that slight problem with my limiter.”
“Zen,” Blake began, “Is Avon in the computer room?”
“Sensors indicate that he is not.”
“Thank you Zen. So where is he? I’ve tried everywhere else.”
“I presume he’s still on the ship?” Jenna wondered out loud.
“Why shouldn’t he be? Zen. Is Avon still on the Liberator?”
“Sensors indicate that he is.”
“Emergency life capsule…”

“Zen says he’s here,” Blake murmured, “But where?”
By now Cally had joined the search party.
“Cally, perhaps you can…”
She blushed slightly.
Blake realised that his allusion to Cally’s ‘feeling’ was being somewhat intrusive.
“As I came to join you, I’m sure that I could sense his presence...back there.”
Gan frowned, “You don’t suppose something’s happened to him?”
“Like what?” Blake said exasperated.
“Look, Blake, this is an alien ship…perhaps a time shift or a dimension jump…”
“It’s something Avon was telling me about. When Orac was almost taken over…”
“Yes, I’m sorry; I see what you mean.”
“Hello, what’s going on?” Vila said, coming into view, a glass of Soma in hand, “Is it a party? A game? Oh hide and seek…”
“No Vila, it isn’t any of those,” Cally replied, “We’ve lost Avon…”
“So why the glum faces? That could be a plus.”
Blake didn’t find that funny, at all, “Vila, I thought I asked you to clean up the computer room?”
“You did, but the Hoover packed up so I had to resort to a good old dustpan and brush which I think deserves a glass of…” He stopped.
“What is it?” Blake asked.
“I’ve just remembered something…”

They ran after him but then stopped dead as rather dusty Avon stood in the corridor.
“You couldn’t even do that, could you?” he growled, “Clean up the computer room.”
“But I did,” Vila opined, “I swept up all the dust and debris and…”
“…tipped it down the inspection hatch and left it opened!”
“Now come on…I replaced it…” Vila paused as Avon glared at him, “Oh, you’d fallen in it…”
“Yes, I fell in it and have been crawling around all over the ship trying to get out!!”
“Sorry,” Vila said meekly.
“Still, “Avon said, regaining his composure, “all knowledge is useful. At least I have now discovered that there are inspection tunnels all over the ship. So, should we ever find ourselves boarded by those who don’t mean us well, then we can hide from them…and not use them to dispose of dust instead of using the correct disposal units. Right, Vila?”
Vila swallowed, “So much for the plus side. Cheers.”

And just getting in under the wire...the Revels Saga Finale continues featuring our favourite Mr Smooth who finds a very familiar, sexy officer in his apartment...and she has plans for the future...

The Revels Finale
Part Three
Earth Shattering News

Carnell’s decision to stay on Freedom City and use Soolin’s generous gift of money to buy out the owners of the Casino had proved to be an excellent idea.
However, that feeling of triumph disappeared as he entered the apartments that came with the Casino and suddenly found that he had company.
“You seem surprised to see me, Carnell.”
“Surprised; delighted and, if I may say, somewhat puzzled. How did you know where to find me?”
“Oh Carnell, I’ve always known where to find you.”
“I should take that as a compliment, I suppose, but no doubt there is method behind your madness.”
“Madness?” The former Supreme Commander, President and latterly Commissioner Sleer, almost seemed to unwind like a coiled cobra, “Why madness?”
“Ma’am,” Carnell continued as she slowly approached him and her fingers gently caressed his shoulder, “Much as it pains me, you are now the most wanted woman in this Galaxy.”
“Am I really?”
“I’m sure you are, and there are people who would very much like to see you dead.”
“So what do you suggest I do?” she purred.
“Maybe it’s time to retire, Ma’am.”
“Retire? Me?”
“Yes; you.”
“Carnell, I’ve enjoyed power for far too long…”
“Ma’am, it’s over. Even now as we speak, the Rebel alliance is gaining ground. In fact, they are closing in on Earth itself…And with their antidote to that drug, nothing will stop them…”
Servalan sighed, “But power is all I know.”
“And the other problem is Kerr Avon…”
“But he is dead…”
“Ma’am, I fear not. He could well come after you. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if he is even now using that computer of his to locate you.”
“You do have a point, which is why I’m so glad that I decided to come here. You see, it would seem that since there is now a widely available antidote, a great many of the Confection makers from before are busy trying to fill the gap. And I’ve decided that if you cannot beat them…well, one should join them.”
“Excuse my ignorance, Ma’am….”
“From listening into your communications channel...”
“My private communications channel…”
“…it would appear that some of those companies are looking for investors…in return, they are offering the Presidency of their company…”
“Ma’am…” Carnell began, “You need capital to invest.”
“Indeed, and that I have. It was right there in that safe…”
“Ma’am, that is MY money.”
“Not anymore,” she playfully kissed his cheek, “And of course, once I have established myself as a President of one company…well I can consolidate my position and become President of more. Not quite as powerful as President of the Terran Federation…but eventually? Well who knows? Of course, I will have to be discreet…”
“Of course…”
“But first I will need a ‘wardrobe’ more befitting an aspiring President, but I’m sure Krantor had contacts in that department…”
Carnell sighed as she sashayed off, “I wonder if Earth knows what is about to hit it….”
