This story was written for Trifecta’s weekend prompt, in which we were supposed to use the words “myopic”, “dazzle”, and “basin”, along with thirty more of our own. Enjoy!


“Mayday! Mayday! We’re in Antares Star Basin. Shields gone. Stupid myopic engineers, can’t build shields worth-


“Core’s melting. Mum said space would dazzle me. Thanks for that, mum!”

    I often had dreams of wonderful adventures in space. But this is probably what would actually happen to me should I go there.

    • Me too. Which is why I will stay home and go to space vicariously through Star Trek.

  4. This was so much fun. I remember doing this as a little boy sometimes. well done.

    Mom said space would dazzle me… and now you’re dazzling space! lol

  6. Nothing like a little sci-fi humour to perk up one’s evening. Well-written tale that perfectly captures the extent of our indebtedness to our mothers. 🙂

  7. Well done indeed! Great instant story!

  8. You had me with those sound effects.
    esp, ker-floom. 😀

  9. Loving your sound words here, very cool take. Thanks for linking up!

  10. Yikes! That’s a lot of action packed into 33 words! Fun little story – thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks for the comment! 33 words is tough to pack action in, but I’m glad it worked.
