----------------------------------------

[Type: Recon Mission Log]

[Location: Great Desert]

[Anomalies: 1]

"Above the KSP's Desert Launch Site, I detected high amounts of radioactive gases and heat coming from the launch pad. The incident only lasted 10 seconds and I am unhurt" - Pilot Alex Kerman 

[Class: Insufficient Data]

----------------------------------------

Deep in the underground complex underneath the KSC, six kerbals sat in a circle around the intercepted report.

"The government's seen us. They will know what we're doing soon."

"It's a matter of time. They will shut us down."

"We've gotten too much progress to stop now! We have all we need."

"Wernher's right. We can't stop now. Project Beakon will continue."

Chapter 13: The Plan

Year 1 Day 129

Elcano update:

In the underground complex underneath the KSC, 9 kerbals sat at a white table. Actually, 8 but that's beside the point...

John: Thank you all for arriving on time. Now let us start.

John: As you all know, kerbalkind has had several near misses over the years...

Gene: Year 2 Day 40 Class B!

Linus: Year 5 Day 167 Class D!

John: Calm down... We have a plan. Wernher here has developed systems for blowing up asteroids!

Wernher: I have?

John: Yes, the super laser pointer. Can you tell us how it works?

Wernher: So it's like this laser pointer here, but bigger. Much, MUCH bigger!

Jeb: That's so kerbal!!! MOAR LASERSS!!!1

Gene: Jeb, please quiet before I turn off the video call from the station!

Jeb: ...

John: Besides, if we don't destroy the asteroid, we can always do plan B.

Jeb: What's that?

John: The Kerbal Emergency Evacuation Vehicle  

Gus: John recently asked me to build a little something...

Linus: Wow, that can take 164 kerbals to space!

Wernher: We don't have the launch systems to take that to space...

Siggel: But what about the ISRU?

Mortimer: I agree. It should have a passenger module and a larger cargo bay like the space shuttle, Siggel should know.

Wernher: Jack of all trades, master of none, it'll be more efficient if we just carry one.

Siggel: I haven't been flying shuttles for 15 years already...

Walt: You could make a movie of it launch, our rep would skyrocket.

John: There will be many types of KEEVs. The ship in the SPH is the Type 1X, which is a crew vehicle. X means experimental.

John: We first have to test it, so don't count your eggs before they hatch. As you know, the government is getting suspicious of our activities at the desert compound.  So keep vigilant.

  Year 1 Day 130

Lefel Kerman sat in the right MK2 cockpit of the Type 1X KEEV 'Static'.

Lefel: I'm underqualified for this!

Lefel: This handles well offroad...

Lefel: Airtime!

Gene: Stop messing around, you might break it.

Lefel: Sorry.

With a successful test of the KEEV Type 1X, the KSC ramps up its factories for more...

Year 1 Day 135

Before long, the 'Rhino' engines had been thoroughly tested on Kerbin and it was finally time for a suborbital flight...

Wernher: This is the worst looking thing I've ever seen! 

Gene: If it works, it works.

John: We just need someone brave enough to fly that... thing.

Dehat: What thing? Is it fun? I want to go!

Gene: We have our victim!

 

Later...

Dehat: This is a strange simulator. Hmm, the doors are faulty. Anyways, what does this button do?

gJ62qlf.png

Dehat: AHHHHHHHHHHHHH HELP!

Gene: Sorry, can't hear you.

Dehat: WHATS HAPPENING?

Me: this would make a nice screensaver.

The other 859 pictures: no.

Wernher: Engine cutoff! Dehat, how do you feel

Linus: She appears have fainted.

Wernher: DEHAT WAKE UP YOUR GOING TO DIE

Bobak: Well, we could use the same program we used to open the solar panels automatically for the seperator on the escape pod.

*BANG*

Dehat: Ow, my head hurts. Where am I?

Gene: well... nothing.

SB1iN9U.png

Dehat: Ya sure? I just heard a big splash.

Wernher: I don't think launching the largest space vessel created by Kerbalkind towards the second largest city on Kerbin was a very good idea...

Back at the KSC

The Imagination Type 1X was constructed as the third Type 1X. It was out-fitted with two grabbers and a large docking port. It is shown grabbing the Static (top)
