Sometimes, just a few words are enough to build a universe. So take six words of your own, and tell us some science fiction stories!

Maybe you want to write a multiple-part epic, like this chilling little tale put together by two commenters: ("Greetings. We mean you no harm." - acgilson "With the sequel, 'Apologies, we meant you no harm'" - Omar Ghazrain). Or maybe you want to play off of a classic, like this story, presented to us "with apologies to E. Hemingway": ("For Sale: Child's spacesuit (punctures repaired)." - Fear Glas).

Whatever kind of story you plan to tell, condense it into six words and then write it in the comments — and be sure to star your favorites.
