[!2] Mythical Meats:[/] [!0.8]Flavored Mycoprotein
Get Kraken!
Phoenix hot wings!
Yeti in spaghetti!
[!1.6] Behemoth burgers!
Long pig no longer being served
One dragon burger,
one kraken basket and
a leviathan meal.
Anything else?
I'm good. One
leviathan and I'm
done for the day.

There's that smell again.
What smell?
The smell from the alien's suit. Let me have one of those.
That's my kraken.
This is it! This is where I knew the smell from!
Do you think anyone else knows? There's an entirely different set of rules for bringing food on the station than for bringing people on.

It's not like we're eating aliens. We're eating fungal protein flavored like aliens.
What we think is flavored like aliens. The smell is close. The alien might taste different from kraken flavoring.
Could we get a sample? If the cells can be cultured, we can grow enough for a taste test.
If the real thing tastes better, we can use that to make corrections to the mycoprotein flavor.
We should discontinue the flavor. One day, we're going to establish relations with these aliens.
It would make official contact awkward. “We come in peace. Don't look too closely at our menus.”

We need to tell the alien about this.
He'll report it and we'll never have Kraken flavored protein again.

I put your suit in your room.
Thanks. Helix should be here shortly.
I'm here now.
Great. Did you find anything interesting?
I found a tribe of lost robots.
That's frightening, though I suppose frightening is a subset of interesting.

Attention 1071-CCN. Your flight path to the nuclear pulse factory has been approved. You may depart on exit ramp one.
Thank you, P/N junction control. We are moving to depart on exit ramp one.
We're going backwards.
Only relative to the station. With spin velocity, we're actually going forward.
So we're going backwards and forwards at the same time?
Somedays I feel like
I'm living the physics equivalent of “Who's
on first?”

We have exited the station.
No other ships in the immediate vicinity. Drive corridor is clear. Extending radiators.
We'll be accelerating at one meter per second squared. We'll reach our destination
in about seven hours.
Do you suppose the bomb factory gives away free samples?
You know, little ones.
Like maybe a kiloton to brighten up the holidays?
I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Helix, tell
us about the robots you found.
Can you wait until after I take a shower? I want
to hear this.
Why would you need a shower? You were just in the water.
Heavily chlorinated water. Then getting you back to the ship put your scent
all over me.
I smell like a public pool in a seafood market.
I helped create a new scent. If you patent it as a perfume, I get a
cut of the profits!

Don't use all the hot water.
I want to take a shower after you.
When Florence brought me to the ship, she got her fur all over me.
The normal movement of my tentacles is making the fur clump up. If I don't take a shower, I'm going to look like Cthulhu with a bad comb over.

When towels stick to you,
it's definitely time for a shower.
