Somewhere, inside a giant robot's body, in a galaxy far away, a loud voice blared on the speakers of a remote launch base: Delta Control.
[Hello! This is Krika, Chief of Delta Control speaking. Countdown will commence in 3 minutes and counting. All crew members of spaceship “Flying Madu” report to launch site. I repeat all crew members of spaceship “Flying Madu” report to launch site. Thank you.]
All around the bustling complex, toa, piraka, matoran, and various other beings were running here or there, or typing at fast speeds numerous number sequences in 4 different languages. Through large glass windows a tall, cylindrical structure could be seen, which resembled a cross between a giant cordak bullet and a zamor sphere. Ladders extended from the sides, and two large sliding doors were near the base, and a ramp ran up to them. If any of these busy beings had chanced to look up, they would have noticed a huge package with holes poked in the sides being roled up the ramp by Vezok. Something that would change the fate of our brave crew members forever...
A few minutes later, with the crew inside the spaceship, the countdown began:
Krika: [20...19...15... 14... Oops. Sorry, I skipped a few numbers. ... I'll make up. 13...12...11...10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2...1...1...1...1....... 0! I mean, blast off!]
(The large spaceship left the launch pad with with all matter of flames and smoke.)
Inside the spaceship Flying Madu's main control room:
Hakann: All intelligent crew on board? Did we miss anybody? (Hakann looks hopefully at Vezok's chair as all crew members answer “yes” to his first question.) Gaaki, please begin making checks.
Gaaki: To who? For how much?
Hakann: Nitwit! Engine power?
Hakann: Course computer on?
Hakann: Ship on course?
Krika: [Delta Control here. Check. Over.]
Hakann: All crew in correct stations?
All but Hakann: Check.
Hakann: You are now free to roam around the cabin. Tahu, go sweep the floors. All others are dismissed.
Tahu: I should have gone into welding when I had the chance...
(Many of the crew head off to their bunks within the ship. Vezok heads towards the engine room. Hakann, Kopaka, and Gaaki remain in control room.)
Gaaki: Did you see Hahli leave? She was hiding something in her hands and she had something stuck in each of her ears.
Kopaka: Probably one of those iBricks. She's always listening to one.
Hakann: But electronics were banned on the ship! They could cause interference with the computer! Kopaka! You find Hahli and deal with this!
(Kopaka walks up to the door to Hahli's bunk room, walks in, and finds Hahli lying on her bed with an iBrick.)
Kopaka: You know those aren't alou-- Hey, I'll make a deal. I won't turn this in if you let me listen.
Hahli: Well... I mean... my music hasn't been filtered and it might not be appropriate for a toa of your maturity... and it's by After Dark...
Kopaka: But I love unfiltered music! (He grabs her iBrick and listens.)
iBrick: Flying out of the sun, the smell of toast is in the air. When there's a job to be done, the flying toasters will be there! And it's flap! Flap! Flap! Now help is on the way. This vict'ry song they sing: We pop up to save the day, on mighty toaster wings! In brightest day or After Dark, when times of trouble are at hand... The Flying Toasters set a spark, and hope is blazing 'cross the land! And its flap! Flap! Flap! Salvation from above! This precious gift they bring: Gleaming angels of love, on mighty toaster wings!
Kopaka: What is this junk? I'm going to go listen to real music on my iBrick. (Kopaka throws Hahli's iBrick on the floor and goes away to listen to rap.)
Hakann: (From the Flying Madu's speaker system.) [All crew members please report to control room! An emergency meeting will be held at once!]
(Inside the control room, after all crew members but Vezok have arrived.)
Hakann: We can't wait any longer. We'll start without Vezok. I suppose you understand why we are here?
All but Hakaan and Vezok: No!
Hakann: (Pointing to controls.) Look at this radar screen. Those blobs--
Tahu: You mean blips?
(Vezok runs into the room, looking rather nervous.)
Hakann: (Glaring at Tahu and Vezok.) Yes, those blisps are a meteorite storm. In three hours we will arrive in it. All emergency maneuvers must be--
From engine room: BANNNNG!!!!!! CRASH!!!!!!!! KABOOOM!!!!
All: What?!!! Ah!!! Help!!! Mata Nui!!
Tahu: That was three hours already?
Hakann: No. It couldn't have been a meteorite. We're still three hours away and there's no other meteorites on the radar.
Computer: ERROR 294! ERROR 294! ENGINE DAMAGE! ENGINE DAMAGE! ERROR 294! WARNING!! WARNING!!
All: OH NO!!!
On the next chapter of Bionicle: Mission Space:
What will happen to the crew of the Flying Madu now that their engine is damaged?
Who is responsible? And how will they be punished?
And what about that meteorite storm?

As I have a long way to go to get to the new chapters, I will not be accepting guest stars at this time.
