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 - Succus


The Ludgonian Industrial Union’s galaxy contains billions of stars and 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 a small moon known as Succus. Succus orbits the large gas giant Bruma IV, the fourth planet from the star Bruma. This far orbit makes the moon cold and snowy.”




Doog: “Alright folks, I’ve been dropped off near a small camper-style ship in the middle of a forest of bluish trees. I hope my guide is here because it‘s freezing!”




Doog: “Ah, I think I hear someone coming now.”




Walt: “Who’s out here?!”
Doog: “Whoa, don’t shoot! I’m Doog. I’m here to do a show.”
Walt: “Oh, sorry. I wasn’t expecting you so soon. I’m Walt.”




Doog: “Is this your home?”
Walt: “This old junker? Nope. This is my mobile lab.”
Doog: “Lab?”
Walt: “It’s where we make Ice.”
Doog: “What‘s that?”
Walt: “It’s what we nicknamed Everblue Sap…you know, since it’s so cold here. Come with me, I’ll show you.”


Walt: “Succus is home to unique tree-like plants that we call Everblues. Their blue coloration allows them to maximize the little light they receive.”
Doog: “And you collect sap from these trees?”




Walt: “Yes. These trees must survive long cold winters. Every time this moon orbits behind Bruma IV, it gets extremely dark and cold. To survive these winter periods, the tree stores nutrients and sugars in its sap. Their sap is very rich, and it makes us rich too.”
Doog: “Really? It’s valuable?”
Walt: “Very. Well…once it is collected and cooked up. Come on, I’ll show you.”




Walt: “Collection is easy. We bore into the tree’s trunk, install taps, and the sap drips out into collection buckets. The sap spoils quickly, so it needs to be cooked up soon. That’s why we have a mobile lab. We collect from several hundred different trees. If we took too much from one tree, we could possibly kill it. By the way, be careful not to get any on your clothes. It stains. Alright, let’s get this sap to the lab.”




Walt: “This is it, the mobile lab. Here we purify and cook the sap. We want 100% pure Ice. Nothing else will do.”




Doog: “How does it all work?”
Walt: “First we pump the sap out of the buckets. It then goes through filters to remove particulates. It is then pumped into beakers where it is cooked. Cooking it removes the water and makes it thicker. It also removes any bacteria.”




Walt: “All that’s left is transferring it from the beaker to these little jars.”




Walt: “Ah, pure Ice. They are going to love it.”
Doog: “It’s a drug, isn’t it?”
Walt: “Excuse me?”
Doog: “It’s pretty clear. You work in a small backwoods trailer cooking up some sort of sap than I never heard of. You take pride in its purity. You say the people are going to love it. I don’t know. It just seems pretty shady. “
Walt: “Ha ha! That’s great. Wait to the other villagers hear about this! Hey, Jesse, fly us back to the village, they‘re going to want to hear this!”
Doog: “There’s a village? I thought it was just this trailer?”
Walt: “I told you, the trailer is a mobile lab. The sap spoils quickly, and it needs to be processed on site. We farm hundreds of trees spread over several miles. We don‘t have enough time to fly it back to the village.”




Doog: “So, there is a village. You were right, but that doesn’t explain the other irregularities. Why did you say the people were going to love it?”
Walt: “I didn’t. I said ‘they’ were going to love it. Not people, the Succan Yaks.”
Doog: “Yaks? I’m so confused.”
Walt: “Come on. This way.”




Walt: “These creatures are native to Succus. They feed on the sap. They use those long horns to pierce the tree, then they lap up the sap. We are farming them. They have lots of great meat.”




Doog: “Why do you feed them purified sap?”
Walt: “Better quality meat for one, but more importantly, it fattens them up. Their stomachs only hold so much. We stuff them full of the more concentrated sap.”
Doog: “Yeah, I guess I was way off.”
Walt: “Not even close.”


Doog: “Well folks, Succus is not as interesting as I thought. They don’t make drugs; they farm yaks. By collecting the native trees’ sap, they are able to fatten up these yaks quicker and produce better quality meats. Agriculture…why couldn’t it be drugs.”

Awesome! I really like the space trailer-home, and the yaks are interesting too. The snow really adds to the atmosphere, and the everblues are a great idea!

I like how the note casts doubt on the innocent explanation, just as we were all kicking ourselves for being so cynical.

Thanks to that last part, I now have Tom Lehrer's 'Elements Song' on a loop in my head. I think I need to call my lawyer, Saul Goodman, and see about a pain and suffering suit against the LIU...~H

looking at the winnebago,I can t help but to think about spaceball, xd, I like the scenes, it s funny to take the maple syrup technique, and apply it into an other planet, although creative, I wonder if you could nt have made it funnier by making drugs, xd, where s the LIU when you need it, xd.

Hmm. I'm guessing the outdoors is inspiring you, eh? Nice work as usual, and lets hope that weather clears up. Or maybe not; we got more LIU Atlas that way ;-D

Haha, love the LiU AtLaS bit at the bottom. Great homage and episode, the trailer design is top-tier inside and out. Nice use of dark tan for tree trunks as well, I haven't seen that done before.

Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus Wow man, what is with the speed??
I have nothing else to do. Snowed in. 12 plus inches of snow has pretty much shutdown my area. Besides, the first two were built during the break between seasons.

Quoting Yuri Fassio "Li U At La S"? Why? lol
You figured that out quick! LIU ATLAS. Because some parts of this episode is a take on the TV show Breaking Bad, which uses chemical elements in its name.

"Li U At La S"? Why? lol
