The Dragon in Fire

Captain's log: Stardate 6268.42 We found a new planet. We have sent a landing party down to explore it. It can support life forms.

"Mr. Spock," said Captain Kirk. "I think the landing party should be beamed up now."

"I can't, sir," said Mr. Spock.

They were only able to go down because they were forced down. "Forced, Mr. Spock?" said Kirk.

"Yes, forced because of something unknown teleborted them down and we can't beam them up."

Just then Mr. Spock disappeared. The landing party was Mr. Sulu and Dr. McCoy. They had to investigate. Captain Kirk placed the ship on red a lert and decided to go down himself.

"Space - the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life, and new civilizations, to boldly go where ho man has gone before."


"Beam me down, Scotty," said Captain Kirk.Yes si-!?!Kirk disappeared. Kirk fond himself on a cliff above lava with fish made out of fire. Trees were on fire, but still producing air.The ground was 78 degrees. The gravity was x2 of the earth's.

"Captain?" said Mr.Spock. Kirk turned to see Dr. McCoy, Mr. Sulu, and Mr. Spock, chained. In a momant Kirk found himsesf chained. Then, they heared a laugh.

A man with a whip was laughing. The man was in a machine that was in the shape of a shaphere. He told his Dragon that was pulling the machine to eat the now unchained men. Captain Kirk ran wildly away. Spock just used the Vulcan death grip. The Dragon was defeated. Then amazingly they were beamed up.

So, the Enterprise continued.

Chessboards and Chess

Chess is a fun game, and it has a great board.  Different colors in chess are very important.  There are 64 squares on a chessboard.  There are 32 black squares and 32 white squares.  There are 32 pieces altogether.  Sixteen are white and 16 are black.  Two pieces cannot share the same square.  If one piece goes on the square with a piece already on it, you go on it and take away the piece that was on it.  You win the game by getting the king endangered on the square he's on and he can't get away on a different square.

I hope you enjoyed this.  Wait for next time I make a post about all the different pieces.

The Spartan Way

Hello, I am a Spartan, and I will tell you about my city. My city is a war city. We have rivals like Athens. Athens is the capital of Greece, and we are backwards to them. We do Olympics here as in every city. We make the best soldiers out of someone. We do actual attacks against neighborly cities. We learn to be obedient by a lot of punches to the kids. That teaches the kids a lesson! We have porridge for a regular meal. We are brave and barren, but women get more rights here than in other cities. It's the place to be!

Ancient Greece

The ancient Greeks' ways and ideas are very interesting.  In ancient days, they thought a bull called the Minotaur made earthquakes. They thought up gods like Zeus as one of their important gods up on Mount Olympus.  He is the king of all their gods and he is important because the Greeks thought he made thunderstorms.   They are excellent sailors and have been since ancient days.
