Here's some old school SciFi for you.
This is based on a short story I wrote a few years ago.
It's also my third portal submission. My first one is still around, although my second got blammed almost instantly. I put a hell of a lot more effort into this one. And if you guys want to let me know of any ways I could improve on this just give me a shout.
So watch the whole thing before you vote and review.
The characters Pinback and Doolittle are actually a half-assed tribute to the movie Dark Star. But I only used their names, not anything else.
