The spidering resumes! » « Book Giveaway #2! Maybe I can spend my summer eradicating the threat of space piracy My last lecture of the semester was finished today, so I got to take a few minutes and resume my true calling: SPACE PIRATE.

Don’t forget the terrestrial pirates, accoding to “Atlus Scratched” there is a dangerous one called Ragnar the Pirate.
OT: I think you wrote about David Sabatini and his departure from MIT for sexual harassment, and then being hired by NYU. Turns out maybe that isn’t happening: NYU Backs Down on Hiring a Star Researcher and Accused Harasser
Is there grog in space? Are parrots dangerous in enclosed capsules because the H5 thingy? Davy Jones locker is far more vast out there. Time to raise the Jolly Roger. Shiver me timbers nearer absolute zero. Enough pirate ships in space could reduce global warming.
Didn’t the 60’s Canadian band, The Guess Who, have a song by the name “Space Pirate”?
Oh, wait. It was “Sky Pilot”.
@hemidactylus, my timbers are shivering, although my skin is stuck at 2 Kelvin.
Still, resistance is character forming, so the Space Farce is launching their Colon Snipers to intercept. We’ll protect the Confederacy of Impotency or no money back!
Although, space in some parts is decidedly moist and oh! An ethanol cloud, I’ll BRB…
Everyone’s invited to our Space Karaoke! We’ll get to those pirates later, hit them with the souper dooper pooperscooper missile…
As I recall from “Spaceballs “, the space diners sometimes serve tainted food, leading to explosive chest-busting. So make sure to cook your own food.
Aachen on the Plains says
It’s been about four years—has the game seen some of the mysteries clarified?
I’ve been thinking about checking the new content, but there are so many other games!
If space is getting boring you can always fire up Minecraft and jump on Sitosis – on the current map we have lots of farms and resources available so you can build a new home there as safely and quietly as you want.
…and while you sit in front of the console, you can chuckle about Putin’s latest misfortune; 22,000 Russians are in danger of being cut off at Izyum after their upper chain of command got disrupted by explosively dying.
On the topic of food in space I can highly recommend the comedy sketch “Dearth Star Canteen” by Eddie Izzard. Darth Vader getting lunch and while there is no chest bursting, there are other problems involved.
Glad you’re playing this again! Have fun, you deserve some.
PS. Knew Ted Cruz would get a mention, sure enough right at the start!
PPS. “Base Terminus” – so I guess set in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation ‘verse then? Is Trantor there somewhere too I wonder? ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galactic_Empire_(Asimov)#Trantor )

Yes! That is a classic.
Why does a spaceship pilot need a cape?
Before venturing into space, piracy or not, one should consult the historical documents about the dangers lurking therein.
@ Artor : Because warmth. Space is cold. Also to disguise themselves as and blend in with space vampires.Plus to hide behind from the Ravenous Bugblatter Beasts of Traal. ( https://hitchhikers.fandom.com/wiki/Ravenous_Bugblatter_Beast_of_Traal )
Would love to see you try Kerbal Space Program some time.
Of course, I am ashamed of my ignorance. It’s not a cape at all, it’s a towel.
-To be aware of all the dangers in space, you need to be well informed about the shape-changing Jewish space lizard people (yes. They are a thing).*
