I've been researching AI and figured out how to layer a few things onto each other to produce some fiction. Nothing exceptional, but it does work. Had fun doing this.


Jordan Blair sighed as he docked his ship, the Apocabra, at the spaceport. He had just completed a cargo run three systems over and was looking forward to some rest. However, his plans were quickly thwarted when one of his passengers, a middle-aged man named Marcus, approached him with a complaint.

"Captain Blair, I need to speak with you," Marcus said, his voice tinged with annoyance.

Jordan raised an eyebrow. "What seems to be the problem?"

"Well, for starters, there's no drinking water in my module," Marcus replied. "I'm parched and I need something to drink."

Jordan frowned. "I'm sorry about that, but we're currently out of extra water. There's no drinkable water available on the ship at the moment. It was in the fare contract that You're responsible for supplies above two packs."

Marcus scoffed. "So, what? You expect me to pay for a service that you can't even provide?"

Jordan clenched his jaw. He hated it when passengers tried to take advantage of him. "Look, Marcus, I understand your frustration, but the lack of drinking water is not a reason to not pay the fare. We'll be reaching our destination soon, and you can purchase water there."

Marcus shook his head. "I don't think so, Captain. I paid for a service, and I expect to receive it in full."

Jordan took a deep breath. "Marcus, I'm not trying to cheat you out of anything. But right now, we're in a situation where we can't provide you with water. It's not our fault."

Marcus rolled his eyes. "Whatever, Captain. I'll just have to take it up with the authorities when we reach our destination."

Jordan gritted his teeth. "Fine, do what you have to do. But I'm not going to apologize for something that's beyond my control."

With that, Marcus stomped off, muttering under his breath. Jordan sighed and rubbed his temples. He hated dealing with difficult passengers, but it was all part of the job.

A few hours later, he set the ship on autopilot and headed to his quarters for some much-needed rest. He hoped that when they reached their destination, Marcus would have calmed down and realized that he was being unreasonable.

But for now, Jordan was just grateful to finally get some sleep. Tomorrow was another day, and he was sure that it would bring its own set of challenges.

The next day Apocabra arrived at its destination. The RTT Mining company station 57 was growing bigger through the visors by the minute. A few minutes later he was docked and labor bots started unloading his cargo. He went down to the personnel airlock to finalize the tickets of his passengers. They checked out one by one, leaving the ship. Marcus was the last one to leave.

"Goodbye, Captain. I hope we won't meet again," he said with a smirk.

Jordan didn't reply and just nodded. He watched Marcus walk away and then went back to his ship. He was relieved that the trip was over and he could finally rest.

As he was about to enter his quarters, his comm unit beeped. It was a message from the station authorities.

"Captain Blair, we have received a complaint from one of your passengers regarding the lack of drinking water on your ship. We would like to investigate the matter. Please report to our office as soon as possible."

Jordan groaned. This was just what he needed. He replied to the message, agreeing to meet with the authorities. He had nothing to hide, but he knew that dealing with bureaucrats was never easy.

An hour later, he was sitting in the office of the station manager, explaining the situation. The manager listened patiently and then nodded.

"I understand, Captain. Unfortunately, we have to take these complaints seriously. However, based on your explanation, it seems that you did everything you could to provide your passengers with the necessary amenities. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I don't see any reason to take further action."

Jordan breathed a sigh of relief. He thanked the manager and left the office. As he walked back to his ship, he couldn't help but chuckle. Sometimes, things worked out better than expected.

He boarded the Apocabra and headed to the cockpit. He was ready for his next adventure, whatever it might be. He knew that in space, anything was possible. And he was ready to face it all.
