Having returned in triumph from Little China, I am expecting to be given a new assignment in my new position as a paranormal investigator; but instead I find the university abuzz with news of impending planetary disaster. The astronomers in our physics department have discovered a giant asteroid heading straight for earth. An emergency meeting has been called to figure out how to avert this catastrophe; and of course, with my stellar track record of beating insurmountable odds, they want me to be involved. Can we save the world? I hope so — all my stuff is there! If we succeed, we will be heroes; if we fail, it will be … Armageddon.
All the best minds at the university have gathered to discuss possible solutions to the impending apocalypse:
Then a late arrival to the meeting makes a startling suggestion:
Once he has clarified that he means to set charges on the asteroid to destroy it, and that he doesn’t mean we should blow up our ship, his plan suddenly makes more sense. But can it work? What sort of massive explosive could possibly destroy an asteroid that big?
And so the plan is set. Now we just need a ship. I offer the use of my trusty Doghouse of Justice, but NASA has different ideas.
It’s a brand-new shuttle, backed by Toyota’s legendary reliability, prepared and ready to take us into orbit, once our astronaut training is complete!
With this crew and all the brilliant planning and technology that has gone into it, there is no way this mission will fail! Especially not with me aboard — because I am Dennis the Vizsla, and I never give up!
