“Upon answering a question each, I shall make you my Knights and you will be the subjects of and be protected in return by the Order of the Pirates’ Pandemonium Resolutions.”
“I’m the commander in charge, they answer my orders, leave them aside.”
“It’s as I say. You’re trespassing on my ship. You submit to my Command if you want me back with you on planet Earth at your estimated year time of 2578.”
Then Captain Sunblast bends on one knee in front of the Captain who raises his sword above the Captain’s helmet.
“Well, well,” the Captain says, “tell me, aside bringing me and my consorts back to Earth, what is your mission?”
“To make planet Earth great again: it is in grave danger. You can help resetting its clock.”
Then the Captain asks Captains Starcrusher and Clusterflame the same question.
“To make this shuttle’s time speeding gear to be the greatest,” Captain Starcrusher answers.
“To make my country great again,” Clusterflame says.
Then the Captain, in silence, gently lowers his sword on Captain’s Sunblast’s right shoulder before laying it on his helmet. Labaguette following the blade’s movement at a short distance, takes up each of the sword’s position, eager to be once again part of this long lost ritual. As the tip of the blade touches the helmet a second time, the helmet cracks open and shatters onto the planks of the Insatiable Princess.
“Breathe!” Captain Traumatic orders as Captain Sunblast opens his eyes wide revealing some state of panic, anticipating his imminent death before uttering a smile, realising he won’t die just yet.
