Major Tom

28 Feb 2021

On 20th January, of this year, CMDR DsTrbD NrD was playing around with CMDRs Gareth Shieldstryke and I am Bob Dobbs in system Flyiedgiae QN-T D3-17 planet AB1 whilst on one of the many Colonia Cruise pitstops. DsTrbd decided he wanted to have some fun with launching his SRV into space, much to the crazed looks of everyone around him. The CMDR decided to jump onto his ship, and then promptly dismiss it, causing him to launch high up into the sky… except the CMDR didn’t account for gravity and ended up continously floating upwards. After about 6-odd hours, his buddies decided to ride with it and occasionally “nudged” him higher into the stratosphere, ultimately ending up at a whopping 2.75ls off the surface of the planet, all the while popping on his favourite David Bowie CD and singing along to “Space Oddity” as the whole scenario played out. Thus, with suggestion from several CMDRs, we therefore dubbed him “Major Tom”.
