“It wasn’t a question, pilot.” the acting CEO of Damu’khonde said to me flatly, tilting his head downwards slightly, his brow furrowing together with a growing impatience.
“Understood, sir.” I replied, reaching my hand to my Neocom, accepting the incoming information from the datapad he held. I saluted crisply, which only received a stronger scowl, my CEO shaking his head negatively as he turned and walked away.
I had been verbally reprimanded for my recent behaviour towards another Damnu’khonde member, who was still in the infirmary healing after the brief but vicious bout I had with him.
“I’m damn sure that type of behaviour wasn’t acceptable in your military service, and it sure as fuck isn’t acceptable here. How you ever made it to Matar Colonel is beyond me, but pull that crap again and I’ll have you airlocked faster than you can say ‘oh shit’. Understood?” That was how our conversation had began only minutes ago.
From there, the conversation had turned to suggestions of taking some leave time, sorting myself out; null sec took a toll on pilots, especially virgins to the region.
I had responded negatively. I didn’t enjoy being talked down like a green recuit, but I suppose the truth of the matter was that I still was very inexperienced in nullsec space.
I looked at my NeoCom. All expenses paid trip to Vitrauze Theme Park & Resort, care of Damu’khonde. Well, at least they punished their pilots in style, I thought to myself.
“Aura, what the hell is the Vitrauze Theme Park & Resort?” I asked my NeoCom.
A cursor on the screen blinked twice before displaying the query results:
The Vitrauze Theme Park & Resort (or Vitrauze Theme World or Vit World for short) is the universe’s largest and most visited recreational resort, covering a 30,080-acre (47.00 sq mi; 121.7 km2) area of Vitrauze XI Moon 8, Essence Region and encompassing four theme parks, two water parks, 24 on-site themed resort hotels (excluding 8 that are on-site, but not owned by the Vitrauze Theme Park & Resort Incorporated), including a spaceground, two health spas and fitness centers, and other recreational venues and entertainment. It opened in YC 37 with only the Magic Kingdom theme park and has since added Epscot (YC 80), Vitrauze’s Celebrity Studios (YC 82) and Vitrauze’s Animal Kingdom theme park (YC 85).
This world famous resort was inspired by the dreams of Walt Maynard and his creation of Maynardland in the western continent on Vitrauze VI. Its original theme park, Magic Kingdom, is designed similarly to Maynardland. Walt Maynard created “Vitrauze World” in order to have a vacation resort that was much different from Maynardland’s one-day visit; this includes a much wider variety of sports, recreation, uniquely-themed resort hotels and entertainment.
Seven days to live in a grown man’s childhood fantasy. Lovely.
