Also probably not an Industrial piece. But I put it together from construction site samples, so eh.
Once upon a time, there was a spaceship propelling itself towards a distant sun. It was halfway in between Sol and Alpha Centauri when a rift, caused by a passing time machine, broke open beside it. The rift was pretty friendly, and offered to take the spaceship right to Alpha Centauri right there and then. The crew accepted, but unfortunately the rift miscalculated and the spaceship was taken to Alpha Centauri in the distant past. So they decided to settle down and send a ship back to Earth early, just as soon as they could. But they ended up making time machines instead because their head inventor couldn't keep his mind on the job, and so they went and caused the rift that made them arrive in the first place. They also made the Crab Nebula explode. They eventually died out because someone had the bright idea of making the time machines nuclear. But hey, at least they didn't paradox the universe to death like some people we know.
That completely unrelated piece aside, please be nice and review when you vote. The two are not mutually exclusive.
