Captain Empty asked flabort to check Yukovs quarters, e hadn't show upfor dinner. Flabort enterred the one-use override Empty had given him and steppd inside. He flipped the light switch.
"Oh shit." he said softly, blood was all over the bed and dripping onto the floor.
He stepped over to the rooms computer console, and opened a commlink to Empty's quarters.
"Sir, he's been murdered."
"What?! Dammit, I'll be right down there."
Empty ran out of his office, "The officials will have my head for this" he said under his breath as he reached Yukovs room.
He punched in the four letter access code and stepped inside, he gasped in horror.
On the wall was written in Yukovs blood.
"Hell's gates hath opened"
"Jesus christ what is this" the captain muttered.
"I have no idea sir, but I don't like it."
"Call a crew meeting, two hours from now."
Inside the infirmary, the body was looked over by three men.
"Definitely a stab wound" remarked doc525.
"What I don't get, is why he left the body, it wasn't disposed of, there could be all sorts of clues left on it." Empty remarked.
"I don't think the killer, or killers cared whether we found it or not." Hege remarked.
"Agreed, I suspect a mutiny." replied doc.
"We'll see what the crew thinks in an hour at the meeting, I'll see you two then, keep examining the body, let's figure this out fast, before someone else gets hurt."
Empty was in his office, reading through the logistics.
"I have no idea what I'm going to do now, this is going to ruin me."
He looked through the list of supplies and the respective parties who were getting them delivered.
"Nobody will ever charter this damn ship again. Fuck."
He shoved the papers inside a desk drawer and pulled out a bottle of scotch. He took a swig.
"I suppose that doesn't matter though, does it."
He continued to stare straight at the door of his office.
"No. No it won't." replied a voice in the shadows behind his chair.
"The crew will figure it out."
"I doubt it."
A hand extended from the darkness, the pistol rested against the captain's head.
"Well played." Empty remarked.
The hand pulled the trigger.
Empty's brains splattered onto his desk.
The crew gathered on the bridge.
"Where is he?" doc asked.
"I don't know" Hege replied.
"Shit, send someone up to his office, he might be wrapped up in his work..."
"Hey, Temujin, go up to Empty's office, make sure he's on his way." Hege yelled over the discussion.
"Yeah, sure." Temujin headed out of the bridge.
Two minutes later he returned.
"He's been fucking murdered!" Temujin yelled out aloud.
"What!? Where is he?" Hege demanded
"The body is up in the office, oh my fucking god."
"Dammit, okay, I have to bring you all up to speed...
As you've probably noticed, Yukov is not here. He was murdered last night. The captain brought his body down to the Infirmary for examination, he was stabbed in the throat. The captain ordered a crew meeting to determine a course of action. Unfortunately, as Temujin has told us, it seems he has been murdered. We need to figure out a course of action, and we need to do it NOW." Hege spoke to the crowd.
"I suggest we put someone in charge, we should elect a new captain, to lead us against this mutiny, we can't lose morale, if his death does anything, it should band us together and protect us against these murderers." Temujin shouted
"Agreed!" doc yelled out to the crowd.
The general consensus agreed with the idea. They took a vote on who should lead them.
Who's it gunna be folks? Who's our new Captain?
Keep in mind that just because thetwo peopl were in the infirmary, does NOT mean they are the ship medic, all names that are used are chosen from the group as a whole, generally at random, just because a character made a speech doesn't mean he'll make a good leader, you aren't voting for the characters I've written, you're voting for fellow forumgoers, good luck with your decision,and remember, if your mayor sucks, you can eject him tomorrow!
