FTL: A New Sister

[Part of the Adventures in Space journal]

After somehow surviving and making it to a refueling station they find the populace to be infected with some sort of disease.  Rick assures them it'll be fine and sends Summer to collect supplies they need while delivering his cure-all gel. After she loads the cargo bay Rick takes off without her, as she is infected.

"We can't just leave her!" exclaimed Morty.

"Sure we can! B-besides you... uh we... have this i-important mission to do, right?" Rick countered. He then spoke to Summer over the speaker "Just rub that cream over your whole body and l-leave it on for 2,890 minutes or y-you'll die. Take it off before 2,982 minutes or I-I'll have to come back and kill what you become."

"Wait, what?" Summer asked just as the ship jumped away.

On board, Morty was visibly on the verge of tears.

"Aww c-come on, i-it's not that bad," consoled Rick. "I-I know! Let's get you a n-new sister!"

Rick's natural state.

The mad scientist suddenly landed on a planet to pick up a rock, which he presented to Morty with a huge grin on his face.

"Uhhh... Rick, that's a rock?"


While Morty gasped in shock Rick nodded, "Charlie that's Morty - your new brother! Morty this is your new sister Charlie!"

"I AM NOT A GIRL," Charlie complained. Without missing a beat, Rick pulled out a rod-like device with his free hand and zapped the rock in its nethers as he tossed it in the air. "You are now!"

Insight: Rock crew members move very slowly, which is terrible in all situations. Fortunately they have a lot more HP than everyone else AND are immune to fire.
