Benny Tests out Nineteen Eighties Something Industries latest Spaceship, "The Bulldog: B13-A22"
About this creation
Astronaut Benny, The Nineteen Eighties Something Space Guy is called in to The Classic Space, Space station on the ice planet of Vechs Davion. His commanding officer Paul Jr. has a new mission for him. Given the recent attacks by the Blacktron, Benny fears that it could be relating a possible battle...
Here we have Benny, our Gallant hero!
Paul Jr: Benny, I have a new mission for you. You will be sent to the planet, Jsano in sector 19 where it is rumoured that the Blactron are amassing a force for all out war. You will take a Spaceship to the planet, I'll fill you in on more details on the way... Remember Benny this is just a scouting Mission, you need to see if these rumours are real. Good luck Benny...
Benny: Spaceship? SPACESHIP!
Paul Jr: *BZzzzZZPP* Can you hear me Benny? Good. Alright, The ship you are piloting is, "The Bulldog: B13-A22" A new model for our Classic Space Fleet.
Paul Jr: The Spaceship is based purely on defense, while it is capable of offence, it was designed to be able to take lots of hits, perfect for your scouting mission.
Paul Jr: Your mission Benny is to find any traces of the Blacktron on the Planet. If they are there, then it is indeed likely that they will be amassing an army for a future war against us.
Paul Jr: Previously the Blacktron have attacked other bases of ours, do date they have killed 35 innocent lives in these attacks, we cannot allow them to kill any more!
Paul Jr: According to our spies the Blacktron have a new weapon to use against us .. anyway I'll talk about that later, I need to fill you in on the planet you're on, standard protocol.
Paul Jr: You are heading to planet Jsano in sector 19. The planet has a swamp like surface which will be difficult to land on. All that mud on the planet is sticky and will prevent take off once you have landed, make sure to land on rocks, if you do indeed need to land.
Paul Jr: The area you will be scouting is known for it's small trees, so you won't need to worry about hitting anything, so feel free to fly low.
Paul Jr: A Fun Fact for you Benny, these trees were discovered by one of our own scientists! A Doc M. who today is turning 77. A good man indeed!
Paul Jr: Despite the terrain being terrible for ships to land on, people and walker based vehicles can move freely in the area you are scouting. Scientists can't really prove why this is so. Anyway be on the look out for Blacktron scouting parties.
Paul Jr: In the past our Spaceships have been destroyed from the inside by a breed of Zistonian Glow Spiders. These suckers have eaten engines on our past spaceships, leaving the pilots stranded! But don't worry Benny, Ethocorp has fitted your Spaceship with devises that'll make these suckers think twice before even sniffing your ship!
Paul Jr: I just spoke with Scientist Doc M. You know the one who just turned 77. He was telling me he also was the one to discover the species of Fungus that grows on this sector of the planet. He's recently named it the Millbee Deathbell Mushroom.
Paul Jr: Ah now the new weapon to be developed by the Blacktron. They Call it the W92-FrightKnight Walker. I hear it's actually a pretty good model, very lightweight and perfect for combat. Apparently it's weak spot is it's backside.
Paul Jr: This Walker shouldn't be a problem for you, however try not to get hit by it, as we still know very little about it.
Paul Jr: We do know that's it's weapons are two dual-Firing Pro-cannons. These suckers shoot anything you load into them a good 20 miles, so try not to get too close to one of these walkers Benny!
Paul Jr: According to the public brief by the FrightKnight Walker's developer Blingmart, The walker is an AI and is not piloted by a human controller.
Paul Jr: We've only recently seen these Walkers in combat in the last strike by the Blacktron, so it's quite likely they may not even be on the planet, but you can't know till you get there!
Paul Jr: If you do see them on the planet Benny, they will most likely be with a scouting party.
Paul Jr: One issues you may face while flying is the rock formations. The planet is known for having some big ones, you won't need to worry about that too much in the sector you'll be looking in though, but do be on the lookout.
Paul Jr: Well Hopefully you'll be reaching the planet soon, once I'm done giving you the brief I'll be headed off to my Cousin's house for a party. He lives over on planet Mhykol, you know in sector 345. Hopefully the weather's good there... Gee I normally forgot the planet he lives on, glad I remembered this time!
Paul Jr: What's that Benny? Oh you've reached the Planet? Excellent!
Paul Jr: Well according to protocol I've gotta give you a run down of the ship itself. Better get started!
Paul Jr: You're piloting "The Bulldog: B13-A22" This puppy is built for defence. In testing it's taken 27 shots from one of our tanks to penetrate the armour, pretty impressive huh!
Paul Jr: "The Bulldog" flies fairly fast for it's weight, Despite what you might think the armouring is fairly lightweight and doesn't affect speed too much.
Paul Jr: However it's those engines that make this baby move, designed by Pakratt Inc. these babies are top of the line ... not cheap but so worth it!
Paul Jr: You're not the first to fly this ship though, Captain Jason Guude, took it for a test ride yesterday, got shot at by some pirates, not a big deal though, the ship can take it!
Paul Jr: In prototype sketches behind your cockpit was supposed to be a bed. Sadly that didn't make the finally cut.
Paul Jr: Your ship also has two dual-firing BTC-493 lasers. These aren't the best when it comes to fighting, but it works well for the ship!
Paul Jr: Incase your wondering, Bdubs Building Company supplied the goods for this ship. They may not be the most efficient company, but man do they get the job done!
Paul Jr: Your Windshield is made of Nebris-Plastic, so any dirt that may get onto the windshield won't stick at all. I say this is a bit of a cheating design, I love flying when a can't see, makes you feel alive! Of course if any bird poo gets on the windshield, that stuff will stay and never come off. Dang birds...
Paul Jr: The re-inforced armouring will also protect you from meteors. Feel free to fly right on into a meteor shower, you'll be fine! I think...
Paul Jr: Just a Veteran tip for you Benny. If you do crash the ship, convert the engines into a grill. You can get some beef on that thing and cook up the best Vintage Beef you'll ever eat!
Paul Jr: You'll notice some areas of the ship that have no armour, this is all for some kinda silly aerodynamic thing to make the ship fly faster. Makes no sense to me, I say cover it up! Does look kinda cool though...
Paul Jr: The guns you have on the front fins of the ship are designed by, Professor GenrikBluesman Industies. Despite the crazy inventions that company comes up with, I sure love buying things off them.
Paul Jr: That just about wraps up what I have to say about the ship, so glad we're done!
Paul Jr: Oh almost forgot! Your ship has an Evo-devise that'll allow you instant ejection from the ship in the event of an emergency.
Paul Jr:I've heard it doesn't always work the first time, so do ensure you press it two or three times, otherwise I've gotta fill out a lot of paperwork to let the company know why you died. Eh I always Blame the Contoller anyway, I don't know why you'd only press it once
Paul Jr: Anyway I think I'm done now Benny, you seen anything yet?
Paul Jr: Benny? Are you even there? Did you get any of that?
Paul Jr: Benny?
Benny: Oh Sorry Paul, just tuned in, I'm still getting over the fact I'm in a SPACESHIP!!! SSPPPPAAAACCCCEESHHHIPP!!! Paul Jr: *sigh*
Fourth Wall Commentary:
Well this is my latest system MOC, Another Classic Space themed thing from me. This time I've built a Spaceship, more specifically a Vic Viper. For years I've wanted to try out a Vic Viper and I've finally done it! I'm extremely happy with the end result and really wanna try another one! Also I added in the base for the ship to stand on as I often feel stand alone Spaceships need something else to add that wow factor, hope you like it :)
Also if you spotted the Mindcrack references in the post
1) I apologise for how terrible all of them are
2) None of them are meant to be an insult to any of them, if they seem it I didn't intend it that way.
Anyway next I'll post something Bionicle related. I'm planned on entering the contest in Piece Out on Facebook, so it'll relate to that... STAY TUNED!!!
Hello Ben, Good to see you alive and kicking legos as usual...fun times with MOCpages and you what i still know my password...Nostalgic!...keep up the good work man and dont become part of the dead pages out there like me :P
What a nice spaceship, and the terrain piece was great. I did catch all the references, unless there was a Kurt j Mac one that I missed, and I enjoyed each one! Shiny Benny looks gooood. I know no better way to wrap up this comment other than: SPAAACESHIIP!!!
SO EXCITED TO SEE YOU BACK IN ACTION!!! I don't know when you started posting again but I'm a huge fan and have been for several years now so I just wanted to let you know that you're awesome and I'm incredibly happy that you're building and posting again :D
I'm planning on doing a lot of re-imagining of old themes. I'm planning some more CS, Blacktron, Ice Planet and Rock Raiders. Those and some other themes from my childhood. Glad you'll enjoy them though :)
Whoa, nice work! It almost looks like the ship can pull a Slave-I and flip the wings and tail to become a different style of ship. Thanks for keeping me in the loop, be sure to message me when you make your next post! :)
Awesome! I like the walker and the SPACESHIP!!!! is awesome too. I really like the Classic Space color scheme. I laughed so hard when Paul Jr. said to turn the engines into a grill if Benny crashed. :) Keep up the good work!
