That's all I see now a day. White. I'm not blind, mind you. But I see loads of white. It's chilly. Not too cold. But maybe that's because of my insulated suit. It's white too. If I could see myself, I probably couldn't. Ya know, because there's so much white.
I like white. Oh, but you're here for a story.
Welcome to the S. S. Skeld. Some joker put a U between the S's. Wait, not that ship? Oh
WELCOME TO S S PONYVILLE! DWADWADWADWAAAAA
That was a trumpet noise by the way. My notebook, my sound effects. I also got BUDUDUDUMMMM
Maybe that's too much. Excuse me while I scribble a picture of me playing a trumpet.
Yes I know it's a 1 man band but hey, its my notebook. I will doodle dinos if I want

Pretty good dino if you ask me.
Spike sat on the ground beside Boss. "So, when will they get here?" Spike asked, looking up at the stars.
"Few months. Longer if no one regularly holds the wheel straight for hours on end." Boss said.
"Oh..." Spike continued to look up in the sky. "It's gonna be hard to wait."
Boss nodded. "Often is. But at least you got some friends here."
"Yeah. Pinkie will probably throw the biggest party ever when they get here." Spike said.
"Yeah... So long as she can find the time to clean up her mess." Boss replied.
"Stargazing?" The two looked down, seeing a waving Shotgun. "Mind if I join ya?"
Boss pulled out a notepad. "No, it's everyone's day off." he said, tucking it away. "Jachion should be here soon with lunch."
A small red crewmate ran up, with Doctor Cyan behind him. "I found Little Pistol here trying to sneak some cookies." Cyan said.
Charlie and Jake walked over, holding hands. "We got the telescope!"
Missy, the janitor nodded. "And I cleaned it!" she said, her halo gleaming.
Lilly walked up, only a helmet on her head. "Reporting for duty, SIR!" she said in a gruff voice. "Actually, call me Sir. That sounds cooler than a flower name." he said with a nod.
"We already call you Sir, sir." Brian said. Behind him was his trusty robot Quebur, and the blue dog Nurse.
A black crewmate walked up. "Anyone else got a bad feeling about that Carl?" he asked.
"I think you're just paranoid, Jeffery." Spike said. "Looks like everypony's here!"
"Tu m'as oublié! I brought the food!" Jachion walked up with a platter of small treats. "Enjoy!"
Spike took a snack, before looking up. "I wonder what they're doing right now."
"Probably having a party! With this Pinkie gal you keep talking about, they're sure to be having a great time!" Missy said, before shoving her snack into her mouth. "Yummy!"
*S. S. PONYVILLE*
"It means..." Twilight gulped. It means..." She took a deep breath and finished her words.
"There is An Impostor Among Us."
Trixie's ear felt numb. She heard the words. It sent such a cold feeling up her spine. Yet she did not know why. She heard conversation, but was in too much shock to listen to any of what was said. She vaugly heard something about names. Choose easy names to remember. Trixie nodded, before noticing everyone moving out and about. She got up, before wandering down one of the halls.
A sudden tremor was felt throughout the ship, and the lights went out. The red emergency lights activated with only the occasional beam of light shining down, like a spotlight, or moonbeam. Trixie nodded a few times, before fainting away.
*A FEW MINUTES EARLIER: ELECTRICITY
"What are ya, some kind of guard dog?" Applejack asked.
Big Mac seemed to think for a moment. "Eyup he said with a nod, pointing at Applejack.
Applejack frowned. "You're guarding me?" she asked, skeptical.
"You got any more words in your vocab, or is that it?" Applejack asked with an arched eyebrow.
"Eyup. Yup. Yes. Enope. Nope. No." Big Mac answered with a smirk.
Applejack smiled. "Name's Ap Jack. Or A P J K." She extended her hoof.
Big Mac pulled out his ID card and showed it, before putting it away and shaking her hoof.
The two gave a single, firm, shake, then Applejack reared onto her hind legs and shook Big Mac's hoof enthusiastically. "Pleasure meetin ya, Big Mac!"
"Eyup!" Big Mac said it return, a large grin on his face.
*SPARE KITCHEN 4
Carrot Cake entered the kitchen, blinking slightly. It was overly bright. He walked to a cupboard, searching them for food. Out of the corner of his eye he noticed a somewhat chubby pony in a blue suit. Said pony had her head in the oven. "Hi! I'm C P C K!" Carrot Cake said politely.
"That's interesting!" Cup Cake said with her head in the oven. "My name is C P C K!"
The thin yellow baker's eyes widened at that. "We might be siblings!" he said, excited that there could be someone he could trust.
Cup Cake pulled her head out, and both regretted it and didn't. Before her was a pony she could only describe as extremely handsome and cute. She felt her heart skip a beat as she discovered she instantly had a crush on this stallion. "S-siblings! Yeah!" she stuttered. Carrot gave her a unsure look. "Uh- Oh! I can't seem to get this oven working. Think you may be able to?"

Carrot Cake shrugged. "I'll do my best!" He inspected the back of the oven. "Here's the problem! The plug's wire is broken."
"We need to find some tools to fix that..." Cup Cake said.
"I got tools!" a Pink 1 said, poking her head in. She jumped from the doorway, over to the oven. "Wow! This kitchen is huge! And hurts to look at with how white it is." The Pink 1 headed to the back of the oven. "Okay, so I just gottAAAAA!!!"
The Pink 1 had reached for the wires, when her suit suddenly did something she didn't expect. The pink hoof covering folded up in a mechanical like manner, exposing her hooves as she grabbed the exposed section of the still plugged in oven. The electricity traveled through her, before the power shut off to that room. The oven had a small fire that provided light, showing a Pink 1 with singed hair. "Ow." she wheezed.
Applejack turned to look at the panels. "Huh. A switch flipped." Applejack flipped it back on.
*SPARE KITCHEN 4
The oven exploded as the light shorted out, sending the Pink 1 into the wall. It and something else bounced off the walls, leaving separate streaks of blood and ash. The voices groaned.
"Oh my goodness!" Carrot Cake exclaimed.
"Are you alright!?" Cup Cake asked. The to rushed over to help Pink 1 and the new person.
The red emergency lights turned on. Cup Cake and Carrot Cake quickly backed away. They watched as a creature of blackness and blood started to shape itself. It shaped itself into a pony, before the blood changed into a suit. A single white bulb flickered on, showing a crewmate, with a unique suit. It had wing covers on the back that would allow the user to fly. The right forehoof was painted white. The creature pulled back it's helmet like it was a hood. "Howdy. My name is Cygow." the pony said, her pink face bearing a jagged claw scar in the appearance of an odd X but with six lines. Oddly, a small fez floated just above her head.
Carrot Cake promptly fainted.
