There are billions of stars, millions of planets, but there is only one man, Terrance McDoogal. Welcome to LIU Atlas.
About this creation
LIU Atlas - Etesia


The Ludgonian Industrial Union's galaxy contains billions of stars and billions of planets. Unfortunately, most residents of the LIU could only name a handful of these worlds. In order to improve astronomy grades across the LIU, TV2 has started a new program called LIU Atlas. Follow our host, Terrance McDoogal, as he takes you on a tour across the LIU and some of its more obscure worlds.

Note: This episode is presented in full screen. The corresponding dialogue is underneath each photo.


Doog: “Welcome to another episode of LIU Atlas. I’m your host, Terrance “Doog” McDoogal. Today, we’re visiting the tropical world of Etesia. Etesia has several small island continents spread throughout its large ocean. These islands are home to several plantations that take advantage of Etesia‘s abundant rain. I’m told these rains are particularly fierce during Etesia‘s monsoon season.”




Doog: “Alright folks, I’ve been dropped off on a small island continent just north of the planet’s equator. I’m not going to lie, it’s one of those days where I don’t hate my job so much. It’s beautiful here. Warm and sunny with a slight breeze. The ocean water is crystal clear, and the blooming alien foliage is emitting a pleasant aroma. It’s a paradise. Then I remember that I’m here to work, and this is an agricultural planet. Boring… Ah, I think I see my guide approaching.”




Percy: “Doog! Welcome to Etesia. I’m Lord Percy Hollington, proprietor of this plantation.”
Doog: “Hey Percy. How’s it going? Beautiful planet you have here. The weather’s great.”
Percy: “Great for you. These clear skies are a bit of a concern to me.”
Doog: “What do you mean?”
Percy: “Well, it should be raining. Our crop depends on it. We don’t see many clear days here on Etesia.”
Doog: “What crop do you guys farm?”
Percy: “Dulcifer Melons, a fruit native to this planet.”
Doog: “I’ve never heard of them, but I am a big fan of melons. And coconuts. And jugs…”
Percy: “Haha. I think we are speaking about different things, Doog. Come with me. I‘ll show you a proper Dulcifer Melon.”




Percy: “Welcome to the Hollington Plantation. This little gem has been in my family for centuries. It’s the largest melon farm on this island.”




Doog: “Wow, these fields stretch forever.”
Percy: “Yep. We own over four hundred square miles of land, and most of it is used to grow Dulcifer melons.”
Doog: ‘I presume these pink things are the melons?”
Percy: “Correct. These sweet, juicy melons are made up of 90% water and 8% sugar. Their water content makes them popular on hot or desert planets. Unfortunately, it also means the fruits need a lot of water to grow. They only grow when they get enough rain. That’s why these clear skies are starting to worry me.”
Doog: “I see. And who are these strange looking guys tending the fields?”




Percy: “These blokes? These are the native Etesians. They’re docile creatures. Pretty good workers too. My family couldn’t farm this much land without their labor. Hell, they outnumber us humans 1000 to 1.”
Doog: “How do you keep them under control?”
Percy: “Like I said, they’re pretty docile. They get to eat some of the melons, and they get a few other necessities to keep them happy. Besides, they‘re not the smartest alien race we‘ve come across.”
Doog: “That may need some clarification. I‘ve met a few humans that would really surprise you in the stupidity department. Have you met my editor Timbo?”




Percy: “Ah. Home sweet home.”
Doog: “Wow, it’s huge. Do the Etesian live in here with you or something?”
Percy: “Good heavens, no! Just my family. The Etesians live in some awful ground burrows. I tried to build them some shelters, but they preferred their little holes.”
Doog: “I think we all prefer little holes, Percy. So, why exactly are we going to your house? Is the tour over?”
Percy: “No. Not yet. But I need to get to the bottom of this rain situation. I can lose millions of melons and credits if I don‘t get this sorted out.”




Percy: “This is my study. Franny, what are you doing in here. This is my man cave. We’ve spoken about this.”
Franny: “Sorry dad. I just wanted to meet Doog. Hi Doog!”
Doog: “Uh hey. I like your melons…er…I mean your melon farm. Oh, who am I kidding…nice boobs.”
Percy: “Doog! That’s my daughter! Franny, maybe you should run along. Here, take my machete before I contemplate beheading Doog.”




Franny: “Bye Doog!”
Doog: “Bye…Sorry Percy. I have my weaknesses. Don’t judge me.”




Percy: “Very well then. Can I interest you in a brandy? One does not solve a rain crisis with a clear head.”
Doog: “No thanks. I wouldn’t want my temptations to get the better of me. So, how are we going to solve this ‘crisis’ from your study?”
Percy: “I need to look at some radar imagery. Computer, convert my digital portrait frame to weather imagery.”
Computer: “Yes, sir.




Percy: “Ah. There we go. What’s this! Those morons are stalling out my Aquaelicium Unit!”
Doog: “Uh, what’s going on? I’m lost.”
Percy: “The Dulcifer Melons need lots of rain to grow. Before, the melons only grew during the short monsoon season. The monsoon seasons last only two months of the seven month year. To insure we can farm year round, we’ve installed Aquaelicium Units to keep the monsoons going all year long.”
Doog: “Aquaelicium Units?”
Percy: “Yes. Rain-makers. And the two Etesian idiots I left in charge have nearly stalled the unit. A storm is building up, but its centered over the ocean instead of my plantation. We need to take a trip to correct this.”
Doog: “I’m game.”




Percy: “This is one of my Aquaelicium Units.”
Doog: “How does it work?”
Percy: “The unit pumps up water from the ocean below and uses heat to convert it into water vapor. The vapor is released from the top of the unit and condenses into clouds. The added moisture and heat in the atmosphere creates powerful rain storms.”




Percy: “We need to dock with the station and make some adjustments. For starters, the unit needs to be revved up. It’s not making enough clouds for the rain to start to fall until after it passes over the island.”




Percy: “I knew better to leave these guys alone too long. I’m usually here supervising, but I took the day off to show you around.”
Doog: “Sorry. Things do tend to fall apart when I’m around.”
Percy: “Alright. That ought to do it. Come on, let’s head back. It’s about to get rainy!”




Percy: “That’s a sight for sore eyes.”
Doog: “Wow, that’s a massive storm, and it is headed this way.”
Percy: “Indeed. Well, I need to get back to the unit. I can’t afford another drought.”
Doog: “Yeah, when you leave I have some melons that I need to tend to as well.”
Percy: “Computer.”
Computer: “Yes sir.
Percy: “Please lock down my estate. And get me my MACHETE!”




Doog: “Well folks. I need to get running. Etesia is a unique place. Using advanced rain making machines, farmers here are able to prolong the planet’s monsoon season. The heavy rains associated with the monsoons keep the production of Dulcifer Melons to a maximum. Got to run. See ya!”

how did I miss this one? The humor you embed into these via Doog's philandering ways is one of the things that makes these episodes so enjoyable. Best part was when Franny left the study and Doog said, “Bye…Sorry Percy. I have my weaknesses. Don’t judge me.”

Excellent episode, I was wondering how you were going to realise the rainstorm, nicely done! The digital portrait and Aquaelicium unit are both great builds too.

while it was pretty funny, I would have liked better that something happened with the girl, THEN, the father would have discovered, and got his machete, xd.

Fun episode! Crisp and clean Aquaelicium interior. After this, I could envision an episode in which Doog visits a planet where the LIU grows edible stinkhorn fungi! Ha, ha! ;)

Yes, classic product placement! As always, great episode. I'm sensing a revolution of all these oppressed aliens in the LIU coming...
