A day on the Demeter . This is the kind of ship I always wanted to build when I was but a wee lad: lots of minifigs and lots of cool features and playability. So here it is, in a short story format... . Remember that last image here? After some months of gathering dust, I finally got around to making something with that box of assorted white and blue pieces. I built this all in one day. A particularly rainy day. Down on the barren surface of Yotytiis II, a reconnaissance vehicle makes its way... "Demeter, Ground One here. Scanner's picking up a signal. Looks like a very rich seam of some unknown material. That stuff is dense!" "Transmitting the data to your ship now for analysis." Somewhere in orbit around Yotytiis II... "Analyzing data. Wow, this is some interesting stuff! Could be cummingtonite, or possibly bastardane. Or even some compound we haven't seen before." "Ground One, this is Demeter. Data is scanned and high density is confirmed. Could be interesting. We're setting a course for your location now." "Search light on. Landing boosters on!" "Extend landing feet. Landing in 4, 3, 2..." "...1! We have touchdown." "Ladies and gentlefolks, another happy landing for the Demeter." "Shut it, Michaels. Becks, give me a status report!" "All systems nominal, sir." "Okay people, let's get cracking! I want a full exploration team on the surface in ten. And someone wake up our little princesses...and that one other dude. On the double!" "Tyler, you man the scooter. And keep your eyes open!" BUUUZZZZZ! "Oh, hell. What now?" Eight minutes later... "Come on, people. Assemble below the hatch. But don't stand in the way. And stop fidgeting with your instruments, Reed... I saw that, Reed!" At the same time, on the other side of the Demeter... "Scooter's good to go, sir!" "Alright, go check out the location." "Hey Ground One, could you point us to the spot?" "Sure thing." "Ooh, this looks interesting indeed! I'm taking a sample to take with us." "Report in. What does it look like, Michaels? Are we happy?" "Very happy, sir. Looks like a big chunk of arsole crystals." "Good. If that's true, we will contact headquarters and a mining division will come here. Mark the spot." "And bring me a piece of that stuff!" "Okay, return back to the ship. Our work here is done. Great work all around, people!" "Transmit data to headquarters" "Okay, that was a job well done, people. We've earned our existence once again!" "Someone clean up that mess in the hallway!" Well there you have it. As I said above, this is just the sort of thing I wanted to build when I was younger, only to be stopped short by a tremendous shortage of parts ;). This is also why I wanted to keep that classic space feel, without limiting myself too much to the classic colour scheme. I particularly like the interior, with all the computers and the working hatches and scientific area and sleeping quarters. And I'm also rather proud of those landing feet, although they may not look like much. They fold inside the ship almost completely, and when they're folded out, the ship stands very sturdy. I could even build the ship while it was on its feet, with no extra support. Oh, and one more thing. The silly names for the chemicals actually all do exist. Just don't comment solely about the chemicals. I no, rite. ++++BONUS IMAGES++++ Hephaestus. A pink ship! I don't know what happened to it either. But this is about as far as my pink/purple collection reaches. And to quote Monkey Island: "But it'"
