Challenge #03998-J346: Inspired Desperation

They were able to move together and send out a distress beacon. Alliance found them first. -- Anon Guest

"Okay. I managed to hotwire the nav system. Sending instructions to your screens. The good news is that we're all traveling in the same direction. Some more news... gravity is in our favour. We're drifting closer and closer. I... don't know if that's going to be a good thing."

"Engines are disabled," noted Bay "Missing part that requires a specific download to unlock in the on-board printers. And it's paywalled, even if we weren't cut off from the greater universe, we don't have the budget for that." Bay blew a raspberry. "Three cheers for capitalist greed."

"Okay," sighed Rise, the engineer. "I'm scrolling through the list of parts we can print. I'm going to get a work-around for this horseshit even if I have to use stone tools and flakking bear skins."

Challenge #03919-J267: Almost Everything Proof

A person invents a new livesuit that is damn near like a miniature shuttle. The prototypes were being shipped for full testing when an unexpected obstacle hits the old clunker of a ship with very few working lifepods. Good thing that the 15 prototypes were there, and actually worked. -- Anon Guest

Livesuits, as the name might suggest, are suits that help the wearer live. Most are made for emergencies and it's generally a good idea to have one on or otherwise

Challenge #03749-J096: Safety Inspection

A magical amusement park, rides and all, has been built. Wraithvine and friends are asked to evaluate it for safety before opening to the public. -- Anon Guest

This was much more than a merry-go-round, a ferris wheel, and a pitch-a-ring stall. Some were entertainments that hadn't been seen since the last gilded age of high magic. A giant steam engine was prepared to run a band of bardic automatons and a mechanical giraffe, for some reason.

Wraithvine was here for the

Challenge #03628-I340: Safety and Security

The tug is brought back to the station, the owners are told what happened, but are not angry at the kids, like Oz, is only greatly disappointed. However, the kids must face consequences for their behavior, and the parents are going to get a SERIOUS lesson in child-care, and a long talking-to. -- Lessons

It's universally agreed that eight and under is a bit young for Grand Theft Space Tug. There was going to be a

Challenge #02980-H057: We Tried to Warn You

When you are in any building, especially if you intend to stay there, find the location of the emergency exits. -- Anon Guest

A quick way out is more important than any general way in. Ask anyone who's been trapped in a house fire, if you can. Safety regulations insist on clear and ready access to quick escape in case of disaster. In most areas of known space, this is an automatic and well-enforced law[1]. But it isn't just fire. Space

Challenge #02593-G036: Safe As...

True friendship is letting a small havenworlder ride around in a pouch that you're wearing so they feel secure surrounded by the other deathworlders that they wanted to do business with in the first place. Seriously. Why do you do this to me? -- Escla

Size is something interesting within the boundaries of Galactic Alliance space. Intelligent life can take very many forms, depending on the gravity they evolved in. There are some, like the Xyrak'l, that have shown signs of intelligent

Challenge #02298-F108: Bowls of Fresh Air

And that was the day that they found a "havenworld" that was actually deadly to anyone not born there. -- Anon Guest

The Havenworld/Deathworld scale judges only how hazardous an origin planet is for its inhabitants. How many factors are in their favour or, in the case of Deathworlds, actively trying to kill them. For the Phyltrathi of Planet Fluff, their planetary abode was paradise. All they had to do was take a deep breath and the spores and threads in
