alien recreation:

"Well, that explains why one of the soldiers reported in a pink tree-headed dog in the ufo we were recovering, and asked for permission to open fire..."

laser rifle:

"They'll never take it from us... never... Right, my love? It's ours! My precious...."

For Alien Recreation - "And Mom always said TV rotted my brain. What would she possibly think of this?" - Private Newton Minow, European Forces

(Background for those who don't get the joke: Newton Minow is the guy who, in the 1960s, gave the (in)famous Wasteland Speech (linked to the text), which decried the state of American TV as of 1961. At the time, he was chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, which (among other things) regulated the TV networks in the US. He also helped found PBS, America's public TV broadcaster, which is famous for such things as "Sesame Street".

Now, the TV rotting your brain quip...who's mom hasn't said that to them at least once? :) )

That's classic, mikker! LOL

And the best thing is that it can be used for almost any text! So if there's a decent laser rifle fluff, "your preciousssss" can be saved for another fluff. :P

"Laser rifles are so precise that you could use them for eye surgery. Well, except the fact that the beam would go through the eye, the head, and half of the back wall..."
- Dr. Gabrielle Fitzpatrick, Head of Laser Weapons Development

I'd rather use this, IMO it's funnier :)

"Back when the first one was build, [x] came in and wanted to be psi trained. I don't know exactly how, but he got addicted to it, and we wern't able to save his sanity. He now lives in the closset, so when other soldiers start to get addicted, we pull him out, and suddenly, they don't want to train anymore." ~ [y]

Laser Rifle

"Note to recruits. These are not the laser pointers you are used to"

Hi Historian! Nice to meet ya! :)

Adding to Historian's fresh fodder for the fluff machine...

(an attempt at a more serious fluff)

"Dammit!  What good are we supposed to be doing?!  We sent those boys in with our latest laser prototypes, and what do we have?!  Ten more names on our MIA list, ten more honest fellas at the mercy of those damned Aliens!  ...After all our work, our best tech... it's still not enough!  What's wrong with our design?  Why wasn't it enough?"
"It was the best we had, Brand... it was all we could've done..."
*sigh* "...yeah..."
"...c'mon, dear, it's late.  We should get some sleep."
"You're right, hon... maybe things will look better in the morning."
"Of course they will, of course they will.  We've got a lot of work ahead of us..."

- a late night conversation between Drs. Brandon and Megan McKenna, leading experts in laser weapons design

Hm... maybe it'd be better for the laser pistol?

That means that by the time you've researched that, some soldiers are dead without your learning that? :NoNo:

Aaaaand welcome back to "Fluff the unfluffed" the show where everybody gets to laugh!
Today we have a very difficult candidate! Candidates! Prepare to fluff!
Todays CT without a fluff is "Gravity Distortion Launcher/Drone"! Aaand go!

Of course I have gone mad with power! It would be completely ridiculous to go mad without power!
And no, this is not a quote from the Simpson's movie, I want it on paper, that I actually wrote that quite some time before the movie came out.

:D Not bad, let me rephrase it a litlle... What do you think of:

Well, our avionics guy assured me he fixed that drone returnig to launchpoint thing, too bad he catched the flue now that we're gonna test it...

Actually, it was meant to be an in-joke. The "Mark One Drone" is the Blaster Bomb launcher (which I believe is the equivelent of the Gravity Distortion Launcher/Drone.)
The bug is the well known problem with programming a BB with a route with 90 degree turns, and the programing department is the Xenocide programming department.

How about:

"Rincewind assures me that he's solved the bug in the Mark 1 drone's navigation system that caused it to return to its launch point and explode when attempting a 90 degree turn.  However, he still refuses to test the fix in person."  Capt. R Knight, weapons testing.

Don't know why, but my silly brain came up with a silly fluff text for the Xenium CT...

"Okay, let me get this straight. The aliens have a working knowledge of what you call 'Silly String Theorem' that allows them to tie the Superstring Theory into knots. These superstring knots then take the form of Xenium. And then when the aliens unravel the knot, they get energy?"
