The Adventures of Captain Anoxia and the Space Centipedes, 5: Space Honey

In other news, astronauts have discovered a colony of Space Bees on the Moon. Soon we’ll all have naked Space Honey on the ends of our spoons!

Unfortunately, as these were merely imaginary astronauts, no-one can work out how to get all that yummy Space Honey back to the Chimeric homeworld.

Fortunately, as Captain Anoxia no longer believes he exists, we should be able to get him up there in no time. The Space Honey shall be ours!

Implanted in Captain Anoxia’s transporter dust is a disintegration code enabling the Ministry to dissolve n recall him at a moment’s notice.

Reports are coming in from our Remote Dreamers that parts of Captain Anoxia have begun manifesting all over the lunar surface.

The body parts look like ersatz jade crystalline formations with occasional vestiges of a limb or feature. The good news: they’re all alive!

We believe Captain Anoxia’s scattered limbs are attempting to locate each other in a Herculean feat of individuation: a true Chimeric hero!

Urgent semaphore messages are being sent to our allies the Moon Rats. It is vital no part of Anoxia falls into the hands of the Cicadas.

*

As we should have thought of that possibility earlier, the Minister for Extraterrestrial Affairs has been liquidised as a Salutory Measure.

*

The Minister for Oort Cloud Trade has been instated as a replacement – its experience in the Space Centipede Wars will prove invaluable.

This just in: in an unprecedented intervention, the Space Bees have taken all known fragments of Anoxia to an audience with their Queen…
