FF – Make Klaziquarg Great Again!

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. This week’s photo was contributed by Bill Reynolds.

“You forgot where you parked the space module? It’s camouflaged as a truck and it could be on any planet, in any galaxy, in any time period? It could be anywhere, anywhen?”

“Yep. No wait, there it is.”

“What are the odds? Hang on, some bits have fallen off.”

“That’s just the disguise. No wait, it’s the warp drive.”

“Can you fix it?”

“Nope. How will we get back home to Klaziquarg?”

“I have a plan. I’ll put on an orange wig, get myself elected to high office and divert the nation’s finances to fixing our ship.”

“Make Klaziquarg great again!”

    Oh, dear! I didn’t think aliens would stoop so low.

    Sounds extremely plausible to me!

    Political satire works with science fiction

      And since it’s sci-fi I can’t be sued, it could be anyone in an orange wig leading a country.

    Don’t over-expect from Part Two. 😀


    • February 11, 2022 at 11:38 am

      No, I have a feeling his plan isn’t going to work out so well 😮


  5. February 10, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    I always suspected it!!!


  6. February 10, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    That explains a lot!


  7. February 10, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Finally those last 4 years all make sense!


    • February 11, 2022 at 11:40 am

      There had to be something going on behind the scenes!


  8. February 10, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    So that’s what was going on? OK


  9. February 11, 2022 at 6:40 am

    Explains quite a bit.


  10. February 11, 2022 at 8:46 am

    No chance, you’ve pick a rotten plan. It’s the blond wig and fake tan that gives the plan a disastrous feeling.


    • February 11, 2022 at 11:45 am

      Let’s not get sued here. Small details changed to protect… me!

    Knew there was something weird about Trump 🤣


    • February 11, 2022 at 11:47 am

      Not so inexplicable any longer, though 🙂


  12. February 11, 2022 at 11:40 am

    And in no time, the Universe was back to normal. This makes more sense than reality. Nicely done.


  13. February 11, 2022 at 12:16 pm

    Dear Ali,

    I knew there was a reasonable explanation.




    • February 11, 2022 at 4:02 pm

      Dear Rochelle,
      And you heard it here first 🙂


  14. February 11, 2022 at 12:27 pm

    That truck is such a good decoy. I could just see it hurtling through space like something out of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I’ve been feeling rather blessed not to be hearing about Trump anymore and you shattered my serenity. We have our own problems in Australia, although who and what that is depends on your perspective.
    Best wishes,


    • February 11, 2022 at 4:05 pm

      Oh no, I have brought back bad memories 😦
      The truck would look pretty cool hurtling through space, though 🙂

    Huzzah indeed!


    • February 11, 2022 at 4:12 pm

      Such a great word, that. I much prefer it to the more modern “hurrah” 🙂

        Having just watched “The Great”, I am very into the Huzzah! 😉

    Are you sure this actually is fiction?


    • February 11, 2022 at 4:15 pm

      This is the reality “they” didn’t want us to know…


  17. February 11, 2022 at 5:17 pm

    sad to say, but that’ll work in this time and age.


  18. February 11, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Well I snort-laughed. Thanks 😂😂
    I was very captivated by your opening, and how the truck wasn’t actually a truck but a disguise. Clever!


    • February 13, 2022 at 6:08 am

      Thanks, I’m glad you liked it 🙂
      It’s always best to blend in when you’re travelling the universe.

    Hiding a space ship by disguising it as a old truck…GENIUS! We have a lot of space ships in North Carolina! lol


    • February 13, 2022 at 6:09 am

      Hee, you never know which is a truck and which is going to suddenly warp away 🙂


  20. February 12, 2022 at 1:45 am

    Hilarious. I wonder if we could stash a few prominent Earthlings in that spaceship and send them all off to Klaziquarg.


    • February 13, 2022 at 6:11 am

      Haha, I can think of a few that wouldn’t be missed (for long).


  21. February 12, 2022 at 4:49 am

    I’ll pay double taxes to, as Picard says, make it so.


  22. February 12, 2022 at 5:15 pm

    Why go through all that trouble when Jethro’s Filling Station down the road a ways can probably fix that warp drive for twenty bucks and a can of chewin’ tobaccer…


    • February 13, 2022 at 6:14 am

      That’ll be yer flux capacitor, lads. Always goin’ on the blink, them things…


  23. February 12, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    This explains much. SO much. In fact, it explains almost everything. I wonder if the Covid protesters are also a distraction for the Klaziquargian machinations.


    • February 13, 2022 at 6:15 am

      They’ve been pulling the strings for a while. Changed the entire planet just so they can fix their little ship 😮


  24. February 13, 2022 at 2:51 pm

    Now I know what that abandoned truck over yonder is …


    • February 13, 2022 at 5:02 pm

      Don’t get too close, you might get caught in the backwash from its retro rockets 😮


  25. February 13, 2022 at 3:36 pm

    The hidden secrets in plain site. WOW …

  26. February 14, 2022 at 4:39 pm

    Oh my. On the bright side, I would support aliens repairing their ride unlike certain other more evil political goals. So, overall, yeah I might vote for THIS guy. LOL.


    • February 15, 2022 at 7:00 am

      Yes, they only want to go home!


  27. February 16, 2022 at 4:30 pm

    YaY! Hurray for Klazi…who😹 Extra Pawkiss🐾😽💞
