Story Type: Combination of Original Story and Fanfiction of sorts.

Critique: Constructive criticism welcome. Yeah...I know...I'm probably breaking some copyright laws here, but what the hey. I'm not planning on publishing this.
Summary: A message that a starship's captain delivers to new passengers via intercom.
Thanks to drl909, vince74, and Robin for helping me come up with this idea at the party last weekend. Also, thanks to the members of anime_night on general principles. Anime characters that are mentioned in this story comes from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Elfen Leid, Sailor Moon, and Last Exile. A special thanks to the troll, hobgob, who was plaguing my journal with nonsensical rants a few weeks ago and who single-handedly earned the distinction of being the first person banned from my journal. Without you, none of this would have ever happened...

Spaceship Japan

“I’m stepping through the door
and I’m floating in a most peculiar way”
--David Bowie Best of Bowie “Space Oddity"

“Greetings passengers,

Welcome aboard Spaceship Japan, where it’s everything Japanese, all the time. This is your captain, Troll Hobgob, speaking, and I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to your crew. Second in command is an esteemed colleague of mine, Major Hentai, who holds a doctoral degree in mature anime. Gendo Ikari is chief engineer; Lucy, chief security officer; and Sailor Moon, ship’s empath. Claus Valca and Lavie Head will pilot the ship.

I’m sorry to inform you that we have been having some difficulties with our ship’s computer. As you are already aware, Spaceship Japan is a sentient being, and unfortunately she is going through “that part of her cycle,” so if she’s a little bit short with you when responding to your requests, well, now you know why. Also, please bear with us as we update our translation program. We are currently experiencing a bug that gives messages that are syntactically correct, but semantically bad. We hope to have this problem fixed within the next few days.

We’d also like to inform you that we have a wide variety of anime, manga, and live action series to amuse you during your stay with us. Feel free to partake of these complimentary amenities on the observation deck. Hentai and other adult activities can be found at on the Holo Deck. Last but not least, Level 4 hosts a number of different restaurants serving noodle and curry dishes as well as sushi, shabu shabu, and sukiyaki.

Once again, thank you for flying Spaceship Japan. We hope you enjoy your journey with us, and that you will choose us again on your next interplanetary flight. This is your captain, Troll Hobgob, signing off.”

I did mention this community at a party last weekend, and one of my friends remembers my post about it and expressed an interest in joining. It would be neat if he did because I get the impression that he likes to write, and I have a feeling that he'd be pretty good at it.
