Round 4... Yikes!

Years and years I've yearned to...

Sorry, no time for witty yarns (couldn't resist one more!). Time for some serious brainstorming!!!

Luck to you halfbeak, and more to me I hope!

Head to head battle of the Canadians. Hmm Simon is Canadian too. Are there any other Canadians in the final 8? I smell a Canadian conspiracy. Nope sorry that was just bacon and syrup, my bad.
Yea, though I walk through the valley...

Can you imagine the amount of apologizing that will happen after this round?

Winner - "Hey, sorry for winning"
Loser - "No, it's fine. Really, I'm sorry for trying so hard."
Winner - "Me too. I guess I tried too hard, sorry about that."
Loser - "Hey, no need to apologize, you had a really good build. Sorry, I meant GREAT build!"
Winner - "Yeah, I guess it was pretty great. Oh, sorry, I shouldn't boast"
Loser - "No, I'm sorry, you have every right to be boastful. Good luck next round!"
Winner - "Thanks. And good luck to you next year!"
Loser - "..."
Winner - "Sorry, did that sound kind of harsh?"
Loser - "Yeah... it did"
The loser proceeds to jersey the winner, who drops his gloves and they go at it until the refs tear them apart.

Fin.

No way a Canadian is ever going to admit that

I ought to say that I'm not Canadian but a Brit (also French), and a guest here in this fine country on a work visa! Of course, since arriving here my Canadian hosts have taught me a thing or two about politeness!

Just be glad you're not in Minnesota. All the politeness of a Canadian (and the accent) mixed with the arrogant jerkiness of an American!

Hello All, after some seriously intense building this week here's the Y-Wing, and little backstory to continue the saga of Pokludix Zaa...! I hope you like.

The "Bladewasp" Y-Wing, manufactured by Bacrana Shipyards, was a small, agile but very long-range starfighter. It was equipped with a pair of light skirmishing lasers but it's primary weapon was the monstrously powerful Apocalypse Fabrications Mk.1 "One Shot", a single anti-matter warhead (with a correspondingly huge blast radius) fired towards its target at relativistic speeds.

The Y-Wing's hyperdrive - the Force U-Proxima 2.0 - was also a little different from the conventional. It's core was a containment field of pure midichlorian plasma that used manipulations of the Force itself to translate the starfighter across intergalactic distances far quicker than a standard hyperdrive. Unfortunately this precluded anyone with Force sensitivity from piloting the craft as the intense Force emanating from the midichlorian drive plasma would cause seizures and then rapidly after, madness, in even the most weakly Force-attuned being.

The Jedi order had acquired a Y-Wing for a special mission - to use its One-Shot weapon to take out one of the main suppliers to the Imperial battle fleet, the Corellian Engineering Corporation. But who to fly the mission? The choice was clear... Master Yoda himself said, "The Force in Pokludix Zaa non-existent is. Safely fly the mission he can. Our only hope he is. Hmmm, hmm."

So Pokludix takes the controls and somehow succeeds in setting a course for the Corellian system. The U-Proxima drive engages and Spacetime folds around the Y-Wing in a globular fizz of electric blue lightning. Will Pokludix Zaa manage to loose off the One-Shot at the time and hit his target? Late on Friday evening know, we may...

Over at her Mum's house, with a mug of whisky-spiked hot chocolate, worrying (with good reason)...

I am in full agreement with halfbeak, it was quite an intense week of building, rethinking, second-guessing and retooling. In the end... here goes nothing (consequently, great minds think alike!)

Sorry no backstory this time. Kid’s crying upstairs and I’m running out of time.

Luck to you halfbeak, and to me as well!
