Incoming transmission
We put 31415926535897₉3238462643383279502884197169399375 banana peels in the Radian's path. Human, you are safe in the banana storage room.

The Randians are ignoring the banana peels! They've got someone onboard who just invented device that disintegrates banana peels in a wide radius.
They're also ignoring the red stop signal at the FTL beacon, citing that "The Comet Fighter is never late!"

But don't worry, there's a Numberwang Army Special coming on the other side.

Bad news... the FTL beacon was destroyed by that awesome explosion! How can we jump away from the Rebels now?

Human, the answer is simple. Launch the 100000 Banana drones onto the enemy ship! Then shoot them with the Banana beam and Banaucan, and Bananak mk 1 and Burst banana CXXVIII. And power up the Super Ultra Mega Banana drive. It can acess Bananaspace and we can use it as a shortcut through space time!

Very good. Let's get out of here and to another sector.

Hang on ,what's this incoming transmission? It's all garbled up and appears to be coming from Lanius space. We need someone to translate it.

Wait... could it be?

It is!! Our long lost gorilla ancestors! Hello! How's it doing?

Incoming transmission (in a language only monkeys and gorillas can understand)
Hello. We came here to restock our supply of bananas. Can we agree to a deal? Say, you give us 1000000000000 bananas and we ca give you our most sacred peice of technology! How's that?
Transmission End

Human, what do you think? The gorillas are exchanging their piece of sacred technology for some bananas! We are having a vote. So far it's neck and neck! So, what do you think?

I say give them the bananas. If it's junk, we only lose a lot of bananas. And what's a bazillion bananas worth when you have Numberwang and Wangernumb?

Accepted. Transferring bananas..
Wow! It's an augment that gives us infinite bananas! That was well worth it! Hold on... if they had this, then why did they need bananas?

it reminds me of that tale where a guy gets a device that generates infinite food and items and all he had to do was exchange some food for it.

Or perhaps that one time I sent a repair drone to fix up a space station on fire. They gave me a repair drone as a reward. And a Fire Suppression augment for my ship.

Speaking of which, is that a heavily modified Kestrel? What's that doing so far away from Federation space?

Don't know, maybe it's a science vessel.

Incoming transmission
Hello. I have been decoding a strange code ever since I came here. I met an AI called Collosatron that went on about something called Numberwang and Wangernumb. Can you help me deduce this meaning?
Tramission end

On another note, amazing that this post had 100+ posts with just four people :lol:

Great Scott Marty! I think we went back in time!

What does this mean?

It means... Numberwang!

8-)

Funny indeed how 4 people made 100 posts out of this. Although honestly I'm getting bored and want to see some actual plot, not just everyone (including me) Mary-Sue up the place.
