PER-1L - An Early Lunch
After months of exploration of the Perseus Cluster, the first planet has been located on which signs of life can be detected. This planet has been designated 'PER-1L'. A dropship with a crew of four has been dispatched to acquire samples for analysis and to establish a monitoring outpost. A remote rocky outcropping has been chosen as a safe location for this task.
About this creation


After an incident-free landing, initial scans show no signs of danger. The hatch is opened, and the steps extended. Our first intrepid explorer has the honour of taking the first steps on PER-1L.

The pilot remains safely on board the dropship, in case of the need for a hasty departure. Yup, he seems safe enough there :)



The crew unload their gear from the ship, and prepare to begin their research.



The team settle down to their studies and sample collection.



Nearby, a dark form briefly breaks the surface of the viscous bubbling green liquid covering much of PER-1L's surface.



Blissfully unaware of the commotion below them, our explorers continue with their work. They're planning on being back to base for an early lunch.

It certainly looks like an early lunch will be taken by someone... or something...



Completely and utterly inspired by David Alexander Smith's brilliant Outer Reach Research Team series.

Classic Space is my favourite theme, and David's take on it has never failed to make me chuckle. I wanted to start a series involving the exploration and eventual colonization of a new planet, Neo Classic Space style. I thought there was no better way to begin my series than with this tribute to David and his unfortunate astronauts, hope you enjoy it :)

From the rock to the shuttle, from the monster to the lava... everything in this Moc is stunning. The shuttle is brilliantly made and the shape of this rock brings a high value for your creation. Impressive.

Quoting Daniel Brilliant Wow, the ship was cool, but that creature was quite a surprise. Beautifully done.
Thanks Daniel, that was the aim - start with a fairly innocuous picture/scene, then spring the worm!

Quoting David Roberts Just brilliant! There's so much to take in here. The ship, with it's compact and clever loading ramp, with handrail. The rock work and, of course, THE WORM! I like how you've presented the story, gradually drawing us into the happy and innocent doings of the spacemen. The shape and texture and colours of the worm contrast excellently with the clean blue of the CS spaceship. A tour de force!
Cheers David, glad you enjoyed it - quite a few new things tried here for me, quite happy with the result. I think there will be more :)

Quoting Garry King WOW Jon this is one incredibly fantastic and amazing creation and what a slippery slimy evil looking creature from the fluroslime icky soup. Love every aspect of your work and so well designed. Your rock landing site is impressive. Word are floundering me. Keep up this style of artistry as it is stunning. Congratulation.
Thanks Garry! I love your description - 'Fluroslime' - perfect :)

Quoting Stephan Schumann Brilliant scene! The atmosphere is very CS-like, and the worm is an respectfull one. Most I like the complete scene, it is an well done piece of lego-art, very impressive designed, and scaled, with an stunning effect! For myself, i will turn from single crafts to a bit scenary, too ( my real Minifigs appreciate it...).
Thanks Stephan! The landscaping is fun, but don't stay away from the space stuff too long ;)

Quoting Tim C Is it weird that my first thought was, "Sheesh, where did he get all those trans-yellow round plates." ;) Wow, Jon! This is a bit of a change from your normal work. Seeing you do something a little more organic is quite a sight. That ooze-worm is spectacular. Some really amazing technique went into that beast. I can definitely see this as being the Jon B version of the ORRT. When I saw that monster emerge from the sludge, it was clear where your inspiration came from. Kudos to David for creating such a fun idea, and kudos to you for taking it to such a high level. I will say, though, that David's works had a tinge of humor to them. There is nothing funny about your creature. Pure malevolence. Not a complaint, and not trying to insinuate that you upstaged David. Contrarily, I consider this work a compliment to David, as do you, I'm certain. Great work on the CS spaceship. Love your take on a gangplank, (if I may use a nautical term here). The rock work is perfect. I love the effect of the tapering. Spectacular piece, Jon.
Thanks Tim, glad you liked it. I thought it was time to make a departure from building spaceships for a while - the rockwork was going to have a castle/citadel on it - but I got distracted... David's work with the ORRT series has genuinely been one of my favourite things on MOCpages - real LOLs in there, I felt I had to give it a nod. I don't think my planned series will focus on the astronauts really after this - more on how a settlement/base will grow in a hostile environment, and hopefully some 'interesting' creatures. Paula has also insinuated that I will be in trouble if I only use all those neon green plates in one MOC ;)

Quoting Parrington Levens Oh wow :) Man this is done well, I mean the whole story development just nails it. Cool ship, but then we get that wonderful landscape to go with and the horrid mosnter lurking beneath. Gold dude, gold!
Cheers mate, I admire greatly the presentations and stories yourself and El Barto (amongst others) produce, so thought I'd try a little storytelling with my MOCs. I'm no wordsmith though, so the focus will always be on the builds I think ;)

Quoting søren johansen Really a nice diorama. I especially like the " worm " beast in the neo sea. Could be nice to see the ship it departs from. Great build here:-)
Thanks Søren, I think you'll be seeing where the dropship came from at some point, feeling the urge to build something huge ;)

Quoting Cody G Very impressive work! The ship alone is great, what with its nearly seamless yet still classic-looking appearance, but the death worm takes the cake. Nice job!
Death Worm? Maybe it's friendly, who knows? ;p Thanks for the comment, the ship took longer than the rest of the build put together, quite happy with the shape :)

Quoting Tris B Surly the red spaceman should be the one in most imminent danger and have lowest chance of survival? Star Trek convention dictates. Then again, perhaps the mean black worm will raise to it's full height and consume the ship in one large megadrilican mouthful? It'd be a shame though, cos the ship is a sweet ride.
We'll have to wait and see ;p I think the ship will survive one way or another, may be needed later :)

Quoting David Alexander Smith I'm truly honoured that my little adventures have inspired you. I'm glad someone else has seen the potential in putting these little CS heros in danger. In this particular case, the trans yellow lave/ore/slime works magnificently as a bath for your lamprey beastie. Great combination of sweet spaceship design (love the hatch), top notch rock work and great organic forms in the monster make this a most accomplished build. Can't wait to see what happens to your space men next.
Glad you like it, and thanks again for the inspiration! The rockwork was actually planned to have a castle perched atop it, but I got distracted with the CS Pocket Money compo and this seemed like a better use ;) I plan to continue a series of builds following the exploration on PER-1L, but not going for the humour element - just a series of CS builds and a chance to experiment with landscape. I hope you'll continue the ORRT series, you have a real knack of making me LOL with those :)

the main pic never prepared me for that superb cs ship! lego has got to bring em back, with even more models of trans yellow parts, as, trans-clearly, we can t get enough, lol, yours for instance would be good for a kit, lol, all those trans yellow as ground mousse or something, genius! it looks alienesque alright, at this point, I had my mouth full, then, I see this awesome creature, and you ll do stories? I have to see that! I don t see why you and david should nt work toghether, surely you both can copy pieces... I can t wait to see what s next, you re a fav!

Very impressive. I like that you tilted the cockpit forward, and the pectoral fin backward on the space craft. I like your neo classic space look and feel. Excellent detailing on the rock formation, beautifully sculpted monster, and an enviable amount of trans yellow.
