Stars 'n' Stuff

Post by Nobody » Tue Aug 10, 2010 8:22 pm

I was working on a series-y thing on Scratch similar to Star Trek, but Scratch is apparently both evil and not on this computer (the broken one is the one I used), so I guess I might as well post what I had in the Scratch program here, as well as other stuff.

CHARACTERS AND THEIR RANKS:

Captain Sam, first name Sam, last unknown. Captain, but not very qualified or anything like that.
First Officer, name unknown, his sanity and stuff should get him his superiors job, but it doesn't. First Officer, of course.
Random Woman, name unknown. She's just a random woman who is the second officer.
Wimpy Wally, first name Wally, last name unknown. He's not very strong, and he's scared of LOTSA STUFF, so naturally Sam made him the main security guy.
Strong Man, name unknown. He's unnaturally large and muscular and aspires to be a security guy. Sam gave him the job of Button Presser.

I might try to thin up some names before posting the altered version of the premiere episode: Orange Planet.

Of course Wimpy Wally and Strong Man get opposite jobs of their professions. :P

Sounds interesting, looking forward to stuff. :D

Which format should I go with?

go to x 0 y 10
show
wait 4 seconds
say yes for 2 seconds

glide 2 seconds to x 0 y 15
say YOU ARE A BANANA!!! for 2 seconds

(scratch code)

*a living banana appears

[CAPTAIN SAM]

*approaching it*

YOU ARE A BANANA!!!

[BANANA]

Yes.

(script)

Then a yellow thing appeared, which turned out to be a banana with a face. The captain approached it, and said loudly that it was a banana.

"Yes," said the banana.

(story)

A wild banana appears!

Captain Sam runs on scene!

Captain Sam says: "YOU ARE A BANANA!!!"

Wild Banana agrees!

Sam stood on a square pad with a design on it. Then his friend came up.

"Sam! You're getting a ship, and it's landing here now!" exclaimed the friend.

"WOOHOO!!!" said Sam.

"No," said the friend, "you're standing on the landing pad."

"It's the launch pad."

"No, no it's not. It's the landing pad, and you should get off."

"No. It's the launch pad, and I'm going to stand on it."

"You have no reason to stand on it if it IS the launch pad-"

"-which it is-"

"anyway. And it's not."

"IT IS THE LAUNCH PAD!!!" yelled Sam, before nearly getting crushed by his own ship.

"No, it's not," said the friend.

*opening scene here*

Orange Planet

"Today we are going to investigate an orange planet! Cool first mission, eh?" said Captain Sam of the Horsefly. "Me, my first officer, and my security guy will all come."

"I'm security, right?" said the Strong Man, a huge guy with big muscles.

"NO. Wally is."

This surprised most of the people present. Wally was the second smallest guy on the ship except for the children. He was also afraid of the enemy, and lots of random other stuff as well.

"You can press buttons," said the captain.

"Buttons..." said Strong Man. "Right..."

Later, in the transporter room...

"Are you sure it's safe?" said Wally nervously.

"OF COURSE NOT!" cried Sam, as Wally backed away even more nervously. "What did you say?"

"I said," said Wimpy Wally, "are you sure it's safe?"

"Oh. Then yes."

So Head of Security Wally, quite nervous after the captain's assurances that the transporter wasn't safe, stepped towards the transporter.

Down at the planet....

"Stay right by my side!" commanded the captain, proceeding to smell the air. "I SMELL ORANGES!!!" he said, zooming off.

"That was ironic," said his First Officer, possibly the most normal person on board.

"I'm scared," said Wally.

Up at the ship, a Random Woman was left in charge, enjoying the view. The planet's orange surface looked spectacular from above. But there was trouble. A deep blue ship with a green ball of plasma surrounded by red dots on the tip was landing on the planet. "What is that landing where three of the most important guys are?"

"An EVIL SHIP OF DOOM, sir," said a guy on the bridge.

(I'll post the rest later.)

(Yay, the ending finally)

The Random Woman then sent two extra security guys who appeared a little way from First Officer and Wimpy Wally.

"More security!" said Wally, "Now I'm less scared!"

"We came because there was an EVIL SHIP OF DOOM," said the security guy.

Wally replied, "Now I'm more scared!" (I honestly had no plans past this point, so forgive any low quality)

The four searched for the captain for a while but couldn't find him. Suddenly, EVIL ALIENS OF DOOM surrounded them. Wally's hand shook as he and the other security guys pulled out their Laser Things. He fired, accidentally gripping the Laser Thing too tight, and a tree fell, bridging a gap to a forest. "DROP YOUR WEAPONS AND DIE," said the aliens.

The First Officer saw an EVIL ALIEN OF DOOM by a nearby tree and fired before throwing his weapon into the gap. He missed the alien, but the tree fell and the EVIL ALIEN OF DOOM dodged it as Sam fell out. Some of the EVIL ALIENS OF DOOM left to recapture the captain while the crew members got into a cliche fight scene, except for Wally, who ran away. Wally and the captain beamed up while the First Officer and the other security beamed up. THE END until next episode which will hopefully be better.

Is it in one single continuing storyline or do the Episodes all have different plots?

In general different plots, but with the same characters and setting including maybe some recurring less main characters.

Some ideas:

-Wimpy Wally and Strong Man attempt to switch jobs in a variety of antics
-Captain Sam eats a 4-century-old bagel and gets sick and should be cured using a rare Magic Bagel... found on Planet Brr.

OK. I guess after Orange Planet comes The Bagel Theory.

DP.

Evidently we're the only ones posting here.

ANYWAY:

It was on that day that Captain Sam wanted a donut. "Which button gets me a donut?"

"No idea," said the Strong Man. "Someone else would be better at this job, I'm skilled at security." The captain studied the control panel.

"I would be better at this job!" said the captain. "That button right there is labeled DONUT PRESS."

"No sir, that's DO NOT PRESS."

But it was too late. The captain pressed the button eagerly. "Total systems failure in one minute. THAT INCLUDES THE ONES YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT, HA HA HUH!" said the computer.

"EVERYONE EVACUATE!!!" said the First Officer.

"I'm higher rank than you," said Sam, "and I'm not leaving without my donut!"

*opening scene here*

The Bagel Theory

"THE SHIP IS GOING TO SHUT DOWN!!! YOU'RE NOT GETTING A DONUT!!!" cried First Officer.

"The button said DONUT PRESS," insisted Captain Sam.

"Fine then," said the First Officer. Thinking quickly, he pressed more random buttons. "I just did a scan of the nearby planets. There's a donut on Base 32 on Graidiyenz. Come on!"

Later, at Base 32 Museum...

"This was found on Earth during a recent dig," said the tour guide. "It's shown to be from 2010, exactly 400 years old. Around that time bagels, a wheat-based food shaped like an O, often spread with cream cheese, were still in production on that planet. This tradition died around 2222, and bagels were replaced by Bagmorestuffels which didn't have that annoying hole in the middle."

The captain, however, paid no attention. "THIS IS THE DONUT!" he said, taking a bite out of it.

(I'll post more when I think of more, but I have to go now.)

"NO!" said the First Officer. The Captain paid no attention and ate the whole bagel, collapsing to the ground and groaning. "Never eat something that old!"

"What?" said Sam, "It was just a donut."

"Ugh, this is all my fault. Is there a cure for eating this, sir?" asked the First Officer.

"Yes," said the tour guide, "theoretically. Robert Williams' Bagel Theory says that if you eat something as old as a bagel, it is a bagel itself that can help you. Bagels are being infused with magic on Planet Brr. Cream Cheese of Bunny Blasting actually helps you blast bunnies, Cream Cheese of Sickness Healing when applied to one of these bagels might work just as well. I happen to have some Tomato and Herb flavored Cream Cheese of Sickness Healing. It's really quite delicious."

"Button Presser," said the First Officer to the Strong Man, "this kit will keep you alive 15 minutes. Can you restore the systems required for survival by then? If so, the rest of us could come on and join you in restoring the rest. Hopefully in time to get to Planet Brr.

Strong Man took the kit and went on board. Five minutes later he didn't have anything up. Another minute, he had one system. One more minute... one more minute... by then he was panicking, but was still making progress. Another minute... another minute... another minute... another minute... another minute... he was almost done, but was running out of time. At the last minute he got the important systems up.

Well it took 14 minutes.

Unless you mean reading it, in which case I didn't have any better ideas about that.

I have plenty of ideas for this, and some Episodes will indeed have connected plots, but not for this Episode. Although I have plenty more ideas for concepts:

-The Fairest One of All

-Runs in the Family

-Distress Call

-More Episodes to put distance between the events of Distress Call and the events of The Deal Part 2

-Switch (Your second idea)

-The Deal Part 1

-The Deal Part 2

-Possibly more episodes to put distance between the events of The Deal Part 2 and Paranoia

-Bad Fruit

-Paranoia

-More Episodes

The problem is, I don't know how to progress THIS Episode.
