Any Good Landing

A Mastodon writing prompt story. These are science fiction short stories (usually 480 characters or less), based on an image generated by EW Doc Parris using MidJourney.

The stories are originally posted on Mastodon via my personal account.

“Isn’t any landing you can walk away from a good one?”

“Um, yeah, about that. You want to lift off and maybe try that again?”

“I will, once I get the stabilizers back online. We had a bit of a problem on approach. The local stellar radiation messed them up. Give us, say, an hour? Maybe two? Then we’ll get ‘er set down proper.”

“Fine. I’ve got to call up the cruiser in the mean time, looks like they’ve got some issues of their own. I hate this planet.”
