...................................ON THE L-1 HOME PLANET..............................
I m so sorry Cloe...
It was nt meant to be that way...
It s just so horrible Curt!
such a terrible secret, our family, all our friends...
our home planet, we ll never see again!
I never wanted to travel in space...
I don t know if I ll ever make it...
I was so shocked when the Prince told me..
a 10 year mission was difficult enough, but, never to see you again was unbearable!
I was so relieved when he told me he arranged it so that you could join me.
Working at security in a ship will be different than at the science complex,
the Blacktrons are sure to try something, their spies are everywhere,
I will be on edge for the whole trip, oh, how I miss peace time as 40 years ago...
The Blacktrons are not so smart, we might yet make it without incident, besides,
once we re out of the quadrant, we ll use the new drive, and we ll definitively
be out of their reach.
Spies and saboteurs are what I fear most, they always seem to find a way to infiltrate us...
The personnel has been checked thoroughly, Commander Redgraves has cleared them himself,
no one can get past him.
I know, I wish he could have been there for those poor people on the Melancor...
We re arriving at Scientifica, the Prince is waiting for us, hopefully he will
put your doubts to rest.
The Prince... I have never stood that close to him before,
and we might never see him again...
this is all so unreal, I feel like I m in a nightmare!
now we can begin our tour!
Good morning my Lord!
please meet Cloe, my life partner!
Delighted to meet you miss Cunningham!
I am sorry it could nt be in better circomstances....
I am honored my Lord, and I am very grateful that you have granted me the privilege!
Now that you are here, and about to embark, I can disclose ship details,
your main ship, the 'Colonial prime', has been set in orbit last week,
you will get onboard your shuttle, the 'Light sword', which is stationed at
the space dock, we are currently loading the last cargo trip, which includes
Everything was so secret, I can t believe the day finally arrived!
Secrecy and security are at the highiest level for this mission, most inhabitants
of L-1 have been kept in the dark, they will only learn about it once you
activate the plasma drive, and are safely underway!
Hopefully, it will be enough to avoid trouble...
Before we lead you to the dock, I have prepared an equipment demonstration for
you to review!
all are exclusive and classified for the Alta-5 mission!
I cannot wait to see it!
We have arrived at the simulation lab, follow me!
Now, we can commence the simulation!
The Major has yet to arrive though...
He was not feeling well, I will assume his post.
Start simulation please!
A Blacktron team has installed a small outpost on a moon...
Defended by their strongest weapons....
Radar, power generators, they exploit it s resources...
Introducing the new R.A.T.A.V., equipped with a radar scrambler, and heavily armored.
New armed space buggies...
The new M.A.T.T., also with radar scrambler, medium armored, troop transport,
equipped with smart rockets!
We enter the theater of operation with the R.A.T.A.V., destroying the power generators
to decimate their defenses...
Assisted by the M.A.T.T., and the buggies to clean resistance...
We send our army shock troopers, leaving our enemy no choice but to surrender!
ARE YOU INSANE????
Is it the Major?
Unfortunately, yes, he is not well, I had to relieve him of his functions...
I will take care of it!
Is he drunk?
Come my friend, you need some rest!
You think you can stop the Blacktron?
do you think that they will use such relics???
What s wrong with him?
The Blacktron have killed his lady life partner...
but, he has captured their latest space fighter prototype,
and he has important information concerning the latest Blacktron activities,
we treat him as a hero, and overlook his present condition, please be comprehensive,
he will join your journey only as advisor.
Please continue the simulation!
Once the Blacktron forces are completely in our control...
We send the construction-cleaning robots with workers-engineers...
Then, we start dismantling the existing outpost with heavier equipment...
With heavier equipment, we require more power, so, we send in a mobile
To re-enforce the location, we send in a mobile command center...
With that much men on the field, and plenty of power, we now send the mobile
air recycler, which produces the much needed fresh air!
Special heavy mining equipment is brought to the site...
A deep drill is brought to extract the most precious elements of the moon...
Mobile conveyor robots are then finally sent to quicken the operation...
Finally, the prisoners are 'shipped' to the nearest command center, and we can
Very effective simulation your highness!
Thank you, next, I will show you your ship shuttle!
CREATOR S LOG;
ok, it took a while to make another episode, by looking at the vehicles, I guess
you can see why...
but, also, I have been working on some 'scene panels' which just swallowed my 2 weeks
vacation, the next episodes should go faster, and easier for me,
it should nt take me 3 weeks to post the next ones.
of course, I will need to 'photoshop' some episodes for Genesis, as it happens
in space, and I know squat about doing so, but, I ll try to do it gradually,
so that it does nt take me a month to release another.
Quoting Sasch Weidler
thank you very much Sash! this vehicle was inspired months before it s actual construction, I just knew it would rock! you will have a chance to see it again, as I kept it built for a future episode.
Quoting Marc dZ
merci Marc! I was really inspired to do this serie, I had thought of it for a long time, I knew precisely what I was aiming for, it should be interesting to follow, as I have plenty of ideas to make stories for years with it.
I do not know what struck me most... The submarine pics? The blacktron settlement? Each one of your build would deserve a mocpage: the RATAV, the MATT, the impressive mine-driller and the dismantler. Like very much how you mixed old sets with your own design => the mobile command center. Awesome global job!!
Quoting Commander Alexander.
thank you very much Andrew!
I like it

Sure an amazing creation!! Love he detail and everything!! Great job!! By the way this a creation I dedicated to you because of you're help here in mocpages thanks and enjoy.. www.mocpages.com/moc.php/393025 if the link does not work just check out my newest creation..
It is interesting to see "almighty" BT guys overwhelmed by peaceful-looking CS. Aside from great story, those drilling machines are splendid. Especially that with planet pieces as tires. Your neo-classic space is great with merging original designs with modern theme particles. 5/5

Proper lego, moonstrously entertaining ! well done
Awesome continuation of the story and an impressive fleet of very diverse vehicles - my favourite is the mobile command center as it's very classic - CS styled. The giant drilling machine is interesting too, nice usage of the spheres as wheels. But make sure to keep the liquor away from the Mayor next time ;)
Quoting Ron L. Mitchell
ha, ha, well, I have a big advantage, I have no girlfriend or children, I m totally dedicated in making it happen, + I had 2 week vacation, and spent about 16 hrs each and every single day working on the vehicles and scene panels, you have only seen a part of this work yet, more will follow in the coming weeks, I cannot wait to see your stories though, thank you very much Ron!!!
I really do not know how you do it! I have spent the last several months building and developing a series of short stories and still have yet to get one of them off the ground ( I am close)! You seem to roll them out like casks from the brewery...
Oh my god! I was excited when I saw the Battrax, but then all those CS style ships and drillers and tanks and THE 928. I especially like the M.A.T.T. for some reason. ;) Your pacing of the story is wonderful and I love how your characters are developing. Love the Major, I see a lot of Rutherford in him. XD Wonderful!
I must say that EVERYTHING IS AWESOME !! The backdrop is amazing along with the vehicles. An inpiration to us all. And the simulation: Just excelent! But as we all know, the simulation is not the real thing! I guess the Red Prince is up for a surprise? :) Looking forward to the next episode... 6/5..
Ah, excitement for both the visual and the mind! Excellent work on all those scenes. I think my favourites are the tube-transporter and the mining machine, with cunning use of the SW planets as humungous wheels!
Hey, smart thinking, building all the vehicles first! Now you can concentrate on the story and add 1 or 2 extras as needed! Love all the types of large tires on all the rigs too. I especially liked the aqua viewing/transport tube. :)
Of all your stories your working on this is my favorite except the ones with the Alta-5 batman of corse. I was waiting for this next episode, and it's fantastic! All the new vehicles are classic space awesomeness. I especially liked the M.A.T.T. And the R.A.T.A.V. The heavy mining and the vehicle with the dual drills. It's all here a desperate mission to save a world , a leading man and his girl and a saboteur lurking in the shadows. It's cinematic brilliance! I can't wait to see the next episode , shuttle and the ship itself!
Wow, this is an amazing episode, full of A LOT of building and a great selection of spectacular vehicles. I agree with David, the heavy drill with Death Star wheels is the pick of the bunch! I'll be looking out for the next episode...
An amazing collection of CS style vehicles. I like the long, blue one with theold-style tyres on rocking mounts but my favourite has to be the drill on title page. I love the retro looking, twin bubble canopies and the use of Death Stars is brilliant. It would great if you added this creation to this group: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/21377
Quoting James Dart
thanks James! yeah, I know how you feel, I went to bricklink to decide on my designs, and saw my childhood kits, of course, none of it stands in my present collection, all of my cs kits where bought recently, at high price you understand, but, at least, I have a decent army now, maybe you should try to get some like me, you would nt regret it if you still have the cs flame!
Oh my goodness. I'm ...speachless. Very wonderful mixture of Classic Space and other. I recently (eh, i guess a year ago isn't recent) rebuilt all of my "Classic" sets and forgot how much I really enjoyed them. Though I always wanted the "ships" I never got one. :( Too bad the 6 year old me didn't respect his legos as much as the 42 year old me. heh. Good Work.
Quoting Stephan N
thank you very much Stephan! it took a while to crank that much vehicles, I hope to find more cs printed parts and yellow trans so that I can make more on the mission, like, space fighters.
Ahhhhhghhhhh ---- OMG CS heaven! Hahaha, amazing work and a cs vs Blacktron battel royale. MAn this has it aall. Your vehicles were SO cool. I love that world wheeler, and well, all of it. Great work Frank.
