Spintax uses his arcane power to raise the dead (Salmagundi) and compel the living (Off Book's Jess McKenna).

Space bunker

Craig and PV348 have made their way into the Space Bunker but it's dark and quiet. Craig suggests that PV3 turns on his flashlight function so that they can get to the command deck and put the power back on — PV3 is offended that Craig thinks all robots have flashlight eyes. Craig is still picking up readings of about a hundred corpses, but that's not the weirdest thing he's seen in the Space Bunker. Before the transmission begins, strange noises can be heard in the distance.

Craig discovers that there has been extensive damage to almost every subsystem but he manages to get auxiliary power going. PV3 points at something in surprise, but Craig informs him that he won't look at it until after he has read the credits. Once that's complete, Craig realises that this isn't good ol' Space Bunker Zeta, it's Space Bunker Epsilon. He brings up the last log entry to find out what happened.

This is Captain Leonard Bernard of Space Bunker Epsilon and this is likely to be my final transmission. It's been three weeks since the eggs hatched; nearly the entire crew is dead. Our distress call to the High Command has gone unanswered. I'm shutting down the main power grid to prevent the creatures from accessing the upper decks. In one hour, I'll lead a small cadre of survivors on our final assault. If I don't make it, whatever you do, don't engage auxiliary power. I repeat, do not engage auxiliary power. May Space God have mercy on our souls.

Craig is shocked: the bunkers are supposed to have crews? No wonder he was always overworked. He think it sounds like the crew ate some bad eggs. Once again, we hear the mysterious noise somewhere in the bunker.


  • This episode of I Am Spintax! was released free on the main Hello From the Magic Tavern feed as part of the week-long Five Years in Foon anniversary event. That release featured a new introduction by Craig, who was revisiting the episode due to a case of Time Flu.
