*the misty force field flickers momentarily, trapping Jchan among the plushies and slowly closes in on him.*

Lisbon! Hurry! I need one of your Portable Holes!
Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

No need, I'll handle this one.
*Pulls up sleeve revealing a sleek purple armband*
Here goes!
*uses armband to teleport inside field*
Gotcha! Now let's make this quick, this prototype can only jump twice a charge.
*teleports out with Jchan before field shrinks and dissapears*
Close one. Though I couldn't save the other half of whatever you were riding...
*notices armband about to catch fire*
Gah! Medic!

Um, Rich, didn't you say the force field was portable hole proof?
Risha and Jay Chan? Yeah, I ship'em.

No one ever said it was makeshift-aeroship-going-down-in-flames...-proof...

*dusts himself off*
Ah well, better get on making a better -and safer- prototype.

When it's malfunctioning like that, it's only Portable-Hole Resistant. I would have been able to reach through and rescue the plushies and Jchan. But when Meep teleported in, he further destabilized the field, accelerating the collapse.

Hey, I did notice a portal leading somewhere while I was in the field... It had 'Dreaker' written on it in sharpie...

Perhaps something with propellers this time? Propellers are awfully cool

Ooh yeah propellers are very cool, if cumbersome. Maybe I should give the next one wheels and just propeller along the ground...

*pushes a new cart oner to Rich*
It doesn't have a force field, but I think it can hold plushies...

I'll begin modifications as soon as I figure out what went wrong.

Spark plugs? We're talking about a force-field generator here, not an internal combustion engine!

Now that you mention it, though, the flow regulator seems to have combusted internally.

So then an enhanced cooling system of some kind on the next model?

Yes. And I'll rig the regulator to be un-bypassable; if the regulator fails, the entire system automatically shuts off.
