I simply KNEW that the engine would seriously screw around with temporal displacement devices. I wouldn't be surprised if we find a peculiar British police phone booth aboard as soon as we're underway.
*hobbles up the ramp and into the zeppelin's holding bay*

Or a gigantic slab of ruby, for that matter.  One never knows where a time traveler will appear.. or when, for that matter.

Is there a powder room anywhere about?  I very much need to change into something more appropriate, and I smell of burnt electrickal insulation.

Excellent. Unfortunately I'll have to leave my craft behind. 220 metre long ships don't fit aboard most dirigibles.
Is there any chance that you could fashion a tow-line from the Hindenburg-II to your craft?

No need. I'll simply program the auto-formation device to regard Hindenburg-II as the lead ship in a convoy, then she'll follow on autopilot.

On the whole that would be less disturbing than finding what appears to be the study of a Cambridge don in the middle of the dance floor...

I don't care which form his chronodisplacement engine takes, as long as it's either his fifth or his eighth incarnation.

I'll just go and give the ZEP-01 orders to follow us quietly, near the emergency exit. You never know when some pirate tries something funny.

They should not pose a problem. You may remember the description given of the weapons used by Captain Nemo. A gun-type device firing a multitude of harpoons. I have built and fitted several larger versions to my ship, and in the event of attack she will defend the convoy.

I need my little zep handy nearby anyway. Two ships are always better than one. It would also rob me of the fun ripping gaping holes into the hulls of pirate dirigibles with large-calibre steam powered Gatling guns.

Three ships, however, are better than two. By one, as a matter of fact.
The Zephyr is following us, five thousand feet above, and I've ordered the captain to attack any air-pirates, air-krakens or clouds that come within a mile of us.
After all, there's nothing safer than being followed by a heavily-armed psychopath with orders to shoot to kill. ^_^

Well, Captain Shoggotho, if the Zep-01 is going to follow behind, shall I bring over that case of La Folie I've been saving?

That would be a great idea. Better yet, we could ask our lovely steam faerie to send one of her gorillas for the job... now where is she...?

Just shout, Sir, and she'll come running. (flapping? flitting? will she come at all?)

She might appear, dear Sir. Everything else would be... inappropriate in company.

There is much to be said of exciting the luminiferous aethyr within the gasbags of a sky pirate's dirigible.. especially when hydrogen gas provides the lift for the craft.

You know, I wonder if I could fire the aethyr excitation resonators from the rear of the Hindenburg-II while it was in flight...

*blinks mildly*

Forgive me - I have no intention of doing so, but it is my way to plan for such undesirable occurrances.

I have a broad selection of liquors in the Aethyrjammer that I would be willing to share, if everyone is amenable.
