Star Trekking

I like watching Star Trek. Here is the first part of my own Star Trek story.


It was a quiet day on the U.S.S. Enterprise. Captain Kirk was talking to Spock.

“Last night,” he said, “I heard a strange rumbling, like a big stomach was hungry. Did you hear?”

Spock raised an eyebrow. “No, sir. I didn’t hear it.”

Then Uhura, who was passing by, said. “I heard that noise too, Captain.”

“Maybe it was just a little problem with the engines. I’ll ask Scottie about it later,” said Kirk.

But some time later as they were entering a new Galaxy, Snowdfarsia. The whole ship shook violently. Spock fell off his seat and Zulu slipped down the steps. Captain Kirk was coming back into the bridge and bonked his nose on the doors which didn’t open because of the shaking.

When Kirk recovered, he rushed into the bridge. He stopped suddenly and looked up at the huge window.


The whole sky outside had turned bright green like the fresh grass in a meadow. Kirk didn’t faint but he was so surprised. Spock and Zulu had now stood up and they stared with eyes as big as pineapples at the strange sight. The ship began to shake and wobble and tremble. Everyone grabbed for a seat or a desk or anything they could find.

Spock suddenly spied a black hole in the middle of the green space with white spikey edges that pointed up and down like teeth of an ancient T-Rex.

“Sir, I think we may have been swallowed!”
