MD - MOC Olympics Round 1 - How I Ended the Zombie Apocalypse
Seat-of-the-pants, speed-of-light entry for R1 of the 2010 MOC Olympics. Have mercy.
About this creation
Click HERE to go to the Olympics!


“So, Matt, I know you’re in the marketing department and all, but recent budget cutbacks have forced us to consolidate. So, we’ll be having you help out with the zombie elimination project today.
“Sounds great! What are we doing exactly?”


“Well, this device is called the Quantum Traveler / Transfigurator.”
“Fancy. And how will we end the zombie plague with this, exactly?”
“As you know, the zombie epidemic was born from the scientific research of Dr. Jane Harding, who, several years ago, developed a wonder drug that cured cancer, rid the world of HIV, and even eliminated the common cold. However, the drug had a few less-than-desirable side effects, one of the most noteworthy being transformation to the undead. So, our plan is to use the QTT to snatch the doctor out of the past, bring her here to the workshop, warn her of the horrific result of her drug, and then send her back on her merry way.”
“Sounds like a blast! How’s it work?”


“Simple, really. When you press this enormous blue button, the preset configuration will activate the QTT and transport the doctor right to us. Then when we’re ready we’ll press the blue button again to send her back to her time.”
“Seems a bit dangerous, doesn’t it?”


“Not at all. We’ve already tested it with our monkey friend here. We snatched him out of eighteenth-century East Africa earlier this morning. We named him George.”


“Alright, I think I got it. But before I activate the QTT, I have to ask: what is this equally enormous red button directly beneath the enormous blue button?”
“Well, that’s the transfigurator switch. It activates the QTT’s transfiguration function and can change any object into any other object completely at random”
“Right. Well, I think I’m ready to go.”
“Ready when you are.”

wwwiiiiiIIIRRRRRRRRSPLOOF!!


DR HARDING: “What the ----?!”


ENGINEER: “Doctor Harding! There is no time to explain. You’re currently in the future. We brought you here to warn you about the wonder drug you are currently working on. It contains an unseen protein that will spawn a genetically-mutated race of subhumans, neither living nor dead, that will overtake planet earth, consuming all sentient life on its quest for total destruction!”
DR HARDING: “Whaaa…? How….?”
ENGINEER: “I’m truly sorry, doctor, there’s no time. Matt, send her back.”
MATT: “Yes! Button time!”


(click)

ENGINEER: “You wanker! I said press the blue one AGAIN!”
MATT: “Whoops…uhhh…yeah. What does the red one do again?”



wwwiiiiiIIIRRRRRRRRSPLOOF!!



MATT: “Oh…oh no. Uhhh, we can change her back, right?”
ENGINEER: “Yeah, we just have to ---“


ENGINEER: “George! NO!”
------------------------------------------

ENGINEER: “You REALLY have a short attention span, don’t you?”
MATT: “Hey – you can consider your zombie problem SOLVED!”

EPILOGUE----------------

Seem a bit…sparse? That’s because it is. Trust me: I had originally planned up a much more detailed dio when I wrote this story. I had planned on using my day off of work tomorrow to build before I leave for a family event for the weekend. Unfortunately, I leaned not 45 minutes ago from Amtrak that my scheduled train had been canceled, and the closest train they could schedule me on leaves...well...in about a half hour from now, actually. I don’t mean to complain – that’s what I get for procrastinating. Nor am I in any way asking for pity points. If it means an early departure from the MOC-O’s, so be it – no hard feelings. All-in-all, I’m quite impressed with what I did in twenty minutes. Hehe, that last bit was total BES if you catch my drift, eh, boys?

The whole thing would end in a paradox, but that's beside the point. This is EPIC! I love all the details on the gate, and throwing the monkey in there was hilarious!

Quoting Leda Kat Great stuff Matt, I have a real thing for orange and dark grey... excellent build for such a hurry, good luck!!!! Oh and BTW there's a girl who catches your drift too Blackberry Boy!
I'm sorry, who is this? L-E-D-A? My apologies, I don't believe I recognize the name. I'm sure you can't be the New Zealander, Leda Kat, because she vehemently refuses to comment on any of my creations. ;-)

Quoting Chris Phipson blah blah blah time-travel garb blah blah blah
Ah, I see. You, Mr. Phipson, are a right-brained individual and as such look for scientific and logical reasoning and accuracy. I am a left-brained individual, which means I strive for literary accuracy, and in every storied reference to time travel throughout any nation's literature, there is one characteristic in common: a hole in the plot big enough to ram Lee Jones BFC-DSP through. So, you see, my rendition becomes the most accurate, by way of being the least plausible. It makes perfect sense in my head.

Quoting Stuart Delahay I'm not scared of what you can do with the full time frame buddy, because those orange bricks you used there were the only elements in your collection that arn't dark bley or yellow ;)
HA! Ridiculous! What a .....uhm...completely....uh....preposterous accusation! Yes....completely. Will you excuse me, I must make a trip to Toys-R-Us.

I think something beat you to the "Ending the Zombie Apocalypse." I belive it to be called a shotgun. Or a minigun. Whichever you can manage.

I sympathise, I have two nights to build and post. Good job.

Nice! If you can do this with only 2o minutes time, I'm afraid to see what you'll do given the full time frame (ie: I'm shakin in my boots)!

Nice one! I'd say this is amazing for 20 minutes, and pretty darn good for any longer period of time. I try not to think about time travel too much though. It always results in migraines, questioning of the fundamentals of reality, and the hiding of more bodies. By the way, George is a rather curious name for a monkey ;)

Simple, clean and with some cool techniques. 6 points. I can't really stand time travel. It's often misused and it ruined too many series' finales for me.

hey uh chris u do realize that i didnt understand a word u just said .....anyways great build and funny story

  August 12, 2010
Ahh, but we forgot about one of the fundamental paradoxes of time travel. Allow me to explain. You see, once the doctor was brought from the past to the future it would have changed the time line regardless of her being turned into a banana. If she had been sent back as planned and not made the drug, then the zombie apocalypse would never have happened, meaning that the future scientists would never have brought her to the future in the first place. This of course would mean that without ever coming to the future at all, she would never have known about the zombies and therefor would have still made the cure thereby recreating the zombies... don'tcha hate timeline logic? HAHAHA Over all I was really impressed here (especially given your time frame). 7 points! ~ Chris.
