Morning Shift by MeckanicalMind Morning Shift by MeckanicalMind
Love me some dark Sci Fi. Inspired by all those classic hard Sci Fi jobs that everyone has to do and no one enjoys. Largely influenced by the Alien series, as well as other Sci Fi from the 80s.

Maybe not every Weyland-Yutani operation ends in a total disaster.

I don't quite understand how this has anything to do with ponies :O
Not that everything should, just wondering why it's in couple of pony groups =P

I'm not sure how it was submitted, I guess I blindly accepted the request. Ponies can be in space?

LOL 80s scifi. LOVE IT.

You ever read, like, the 30, 40, and 50s scifi? That stuff is WEIRD. AND AWESOME. And you might like it; it's more about plot than anything, and it doesn't go into characters that much, and the computer stuff is REALLY bad.

Actually, read Clarke from BEFORE 2001: A space odyssey, like Childhood's End. IT'S REALLY GOOD, AND REALLY FUNNY (also, it's funny not BECAUSE it's meant to be, but because IT'S SO OLDSCHOOL. lol) ^^ enjoy!

Awesome work. I like this one a lot and have to say, that's a funny thought about Wyland-Yutani but I guess anything is possible. Being a huge fan of the franchise I think it's cool you added that in as a theme. I look forward to checking out the rest of your work.

Just another day at Weyland-Yutani's mining colony on Procyon 472's second largest moon!! The rocky landscape is being swept with ammonia sleet and a dim blue sun barely illuminates the desolate towers of the mining colony- tough working conditions, but the heavy-duty mining rovers can more than deal with it. Above, Procyon 472 looms ominously, obscured by the hazy sky. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. :)
