Profit Directive

by on October 7, 2015

“You saved our planet!” squeaked the alien.

“Sure did,” Captain Kemper said. “’Course, I can’t guarantee that wormhole won’t collapse on y’all again, ruin them padamantium deposits you got. Darn shame, considerin’ what they’re worth…”

The alien understood. Planetary salvation wasn’t cheap.

  1. Great little piece of science fiction you wove here. The dialogue really brought this piece to life. ♥

    I love your sci-fi because it’s easy (for me) to understand and always makes me laugh.

    Awesome. I can absolutely hear the drawl in the Captain’s voice. 🙂

  4. Man, even in space everything is monetized?

  5. Nice planet you’ve got there. Be a real shame if something happened to it.

    Too funny!

  6. It always comes down to cost, huh? 🙂
