…Walky’s piloting because this storyline is yet another loosely-adapted computer game story from my high school years.  Specifically, “Walkerton 2: Aliens Took Over SEMY.”  In it…. Aliens take over SEMY, there’s a level where Walkerton flies his squad’s shuttle and fights Alien ships, and ultimately he crashes and has to fight his way back into SEMY headquarters across multiple levels.  Is Monkey Master the final boss?  I don’t remember, and I don’t wanna go find a free download and play through the end to find out.

Walkerton crashing his shuttle was a real staple of my childhood stories.  Like, it’d happen every single time.  He was not great at piloting.  We get a taste of it here.
