Chapter 1

The docking ramp from Mudd’s ship retracted and Michael hailed Harry and said, “Thanks for the help Harry, I owe you one.” Harry said, “No problem Mikey boy! You don't owe me anything!” There was a short pause and Harry said, “Well, maybe...” Michael stifled a laugh and said, “Bye Harry.” After they said their goodbyes Harry’s ship turned away and left the asteroid field as Peter came to the bridge and said, “Dude where did you get this ship?” Michael replied, “It was a special project Zhargosia Space Command was working on before this chaos started. When Lord Serenity announced himself and started tearing apart both Zhargosia and the Federation the long distance shuttle was shelved. I had some of my contacts within SHIELD dig it up and were able to finish it and drop it off here.” Peter said, “Heavy stuff bro. What are you calling her?” Michael replied, “I think Runabout would do nicely.” Michael pressed a few buttons and said, “Okay Peter, where is your ship?” Peter looked at his console and saw a star chart and Peter scrolled through until he found a nebula and said, “The Gashula Nebula, no more than a day away.” Michael pressed a few buttons and said, “Course laid in. If I was all of you, you better put your seatbelt’s on because Its been a long time since I done this on my own.” Peter sat next to Michael as Chloe sat to Michael’s left and Gamora sat at Peter’s right while the rest sat in the lounge. The Runabout left the orbit of the asteroid and the asteroid belt and Michael pressed another button on his console before pushing a lever forward and he said, “Warp 5 to the Gashula Nebula!” And the stars in front of the Runabout turned into white lines and the Runabout went into warp.

Michael got up from his seat and said, “That wasn’t so bad. I don’t know about you but I am starving!” The others followed him as he went to the lounge and he stood by the food replicator, pressed a button and his food came out before he sat. Peter looked astonished and said, “Dude, that thing makes food that you want?” Michael said, “It’s called a food replicator and it does. You can order anything that you want, so long as its in the computer banks and the food banks are full.” After Chloe order hers the others ordered their’s but stood hesitantly as they watched the replicator reveal their meals before they sat down and ate. After they ate Gamora and Drax spent their time sharpening their blades while Rocket modified his rifle as Groot sat in one of the rooms and slept while he snored and Peter sat in the bridge listening to his walkman while Michael and Chloe slept.
