Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.
From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.
But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!
The Transcript For This Page
Cut to the corridor just outside the control room. Hugo is trotting out of the room, with Murphy close behind.
Murphy: What do you mean, 'we're stuck'?
Murphy: You said all systems were on-line.
Hugo: I don't understand it. I need to look at the drive.
In the Engine Room. The Displacement Drive mechanism is an object about the dimensions of a small car, supported by various struts. There's a control console on one side and Hugo is at it, with Murphy behind him.
Hugo: This makes no sense. The indicators are all good.
Hugo: But for some reason the probability-shifter is not engaging with the brane interface.
Hugo: As I said, 'we're stuck.'
Murphy and Hugo.
Murphy: Could that new tech you installed have anything to do with this?
Hugo: Possibly. Or, it could be the result of jumping out of that tractor beam of theirs.
They'e moved around to a different part of the engine. Hugo is removing an access panel.
Murphy: What if you can't get it working again?
Hugo: Then I suppose we'll have to get along with the gravity and fusion drives.
Murphy is dumfounded.
Murphy: Are you serious? How far away is the nearest star system?
Hugo: Oh, there's a red-dwarf system only about six light-years from here.
Hugo: We should be able to reach it in about, oh, eleven years.
Murphy smolders at Hugo.
Murphy: Eleven years.
Murphy: Do whatever you have to, to fix the damn drive.
Hugo: Yes, dear.
