Prepare for MOC Speed!
How fast exactly is "MOC Speed"? Show us, and the machine/ship/vehicle/whatevah that can accomplish it!
I chose to explain Moc Speed with Professor Pelew and his maniacal machine.
About this creation
A select group of individuals gather in Professor Pelew's spacious laboratory to witness their not so illustrious colleague's latest discovery.
Pelew: Greetings to all of you. We are gathered together to delve the great mystery of "Moc speed." Contrary to my previous suppositions, "Moc Speed" is a different kind of energy than what we have dealt with in the past.
Dame Lyonesse: Are you going to tell us your theory? Shall we return when you are finished with your dramatic pause?
Pelew: Very well I shall try to speak simply. "Moc Speed" is not the rate of how a build is put together, but rather, the product of a builder's physical speed and his skill. To put it bluntly, "Moc Speed" is equal to the Rate times the Skill of a certain individual. "Moc Speed" is a mental energy that is unique to the individual builder. Once I had a general idea to go on, I was able to build a converter and storage capacitor to hold this mysterious energy.
Pelew: If you will look to the stage you will see the masterpiece of my later years. Let us begin a tour of the entire works. If you all will follow me around the machine, I will reveal the power required for my invention.
Pelew: Watch your step around here there is very little traction.
General Grant: I see you have this connected to the city grid. You certainly have a permit, do you not?
Pelew: Yes, yes its in an envelope on the mantle-piece.
Pelew: As Grant mentioned, I am using the city's power. My own boiler-room proved inadequate for such energy. The machine is connected with a conducting material of my own invention.
Pelew: Note the grating in the floor for extra cooling action.
Dr. Jade: Note it? I almost lost my leg.
Pelew: Well then.
Lets continue. You may return to a safe distance.
Pelew: Here is my masterpiece! it consists of a mind melding device to extract the "Moc Speed" energy and a capacitor to store the special power.
Pelew: With the help of my assistant here, who happens to be a skilled and speedy builder, I will harness the most powerful energy known to me! We are about to behold the very hammer that will crack the nut that is the "Moc Speed Mystery."
Dame Lyonesse: There he goes again.
Mister Hersh: Mayhaps we shall wait hours before finding out if this machine actually works.
Laird Orlando: Anyone pack a deck of cards?

This was built for the "Moc Speed Contest." I had a blast building this and I hope you were able to follow the cracked story-lines from my brain. I was very glad that this category was not microscale and I enjoyed throwing together these figs. Thanks to Flare, George, and Ben and congratulations to the other semi-finalists.
Oh yes, I did take pictures in the snow, so if you see a stray flake in there, ignore it.
Interpretation of Category: 4/5
Quality of Build: 4/5
My Personal Rating: 4/5
Bonus Points: 5/5
This is awesome. The story and genre make this a very interesting MOC.
