Part 5 of the story was massive, so I split it into two parts. This is Part 5A.
We left off as Barbarella got her ship airborne again only to find out that Mado had accidentally reversed the polarity of the stabilizers. The ship crashed through the planet's surface but Barbarella was keen enough to activate the planetary bore. The ship disappeared below the ice of Weir and soon came to a another crashing jolt as it surfaced somewhere else.
The story continues...
