Fortnight 1, 2014: Floatwell

The Floatwell was a ship that sank in a horrible space storm, in 3013, in the treacherous gases of the Sargaseous Sea. [7ACV21] Several hundred people died. Bender's stolen shiny metal ass was on board, having boarded at South Street Spaceport, and the crew went to the sunken ship to recover it.

While they were there, Bender spun the ship's wheel as if it were a wheel of fortune, breaking the skeleton of the late captain. (more...)

Fortnight 2, 2014: Tex 1138's

Tex 1138's.png

Tex 1138's is a redneck bar in New New York. The bartender is a Neptunian. In 3013, the crew went there after Bender stole a cowboy's hat. [7ACV22]

It has a stage for line dancing, which was used by the whole crew, and has a mechanical buggalo, which was ridden by Bender, Fry, the professor, Hermes, and Leela. Whoever manages to ride the buggalo for the longest gets a free steak dinner. It also has a command centre, located somewhere in Texas. When the crew rode, there was a cowboy's skeleton on the chandelier. During Leela's ride, the buggalo malfunctioned, and she was not able to let go, because, due to her squidification, her hand was stuck to the saddle, so the buggalo had to be shot. She rode for 48.3 seconds, winning the prize. (more...)

Fortnight 3, 2014: Bean salesman

The bean salesman is a man who, in 3013, bought the Planet Express ship from Fry at a spacecraft market, in exchange for two giant beans, which he said were magic. [7ACV22] Fry needed money because Leela had to get surgery for her squidification, and the salesman told him that his wife had had the same condition, and that she was cured by the beans.

Later that day, the beans grew a beanstalk that went up to the clouds. (more...)

Fortnight 4, 2014: Momsanto

Momsanto is Mom's floating genetic-engineering facility. It floats because if it were on the surface its experiments would be illegal.

In 3013, Leela climbed a beanstalk in front of Planet Express, which ended up collapsing under its own weight, and she discovered the facility. [7ACV22] Mom's sons captured her, and she was locked in a tower, where she gave a D.N.A. sample. After being rescued by Fry and Bender, she attempted to stop Mom by crashing the facility into New New York, but was not successful. (more...)
