Invasion

"Lieutenant, are you ready?"


The young officer turned to face his 
commander. It had been a swift rise. His 
position had only become available a few months ago and it was up to him to run the control board and orchestrate the overall invasion. 


"Ready for your order, Sir."


"Begin."


The Lieutenant pressed the big red button. 
Nothing happened. 
It was supposed to flash and then burn bright.The salvos would then fall from the bomb bay 
doors and the attack would commence.


"What's going on? Why aren't we firing?"


The officer scoured the control board. 
Everything checked out. The Lightdrive was 
functional, Life Support- fully operational, 
even the Food Reclamation System showed 
optimal. 


"Lieutenant?!"


"I don't know, Sir, I've checked everything."


"Have you turned it off and on again?"


The Lieutenant half smirked and then realised he was being serious. He reached for the power button and flicked it back and forth. 
The system shutdown and then the lights 
followed suit. 


"Lieutenant?"


The young officer stared at the screen in 
front of him and pondered the question that 
flashed up.


Your operating system is out of date, if you 
would like to proceed with this invasion,

He clicked.


Please input your credit card details.


The officer groaned and reached for his 
wallet. Somethings never change.
