I tried to write a fan fiction for this. Got 80% done and stalled.

I'm a USS Macon fan.
I'm an aviation fan.
I'm a Daring Do fan.

And then I stumble upon *this*?!?!

This picture might just be one of the most epic I've laid eyes on.

"This is why ponies don't come to Earth any more. They always want to help. But whatever it is, they'll never have their complete victory. They can't save us, not in the way they want. And whenever they have even the smallest victory, it gets torn down within days."

"Ponies should have stayed myths."

Haha yes nice to see someone who knows their obscure history! This is actually odd because I've also seen the Akron referenced in pony content.

Ah, so it was the one that crashed. Are you insinuating that ponies caused the crash?

Man...this is like an opening scene to a Daring Do movie and then she flies inside the zeppelin and the bad guy is there like:

"Small world, Dr. Do"

"Too small for two of us."

"You've come for the journal of Starswirl The Bearded?"

"That belongs in the Canterlot library!"

"So do you!!"

And then they have an epic fight that ends with the zeppelin blowing up.

YES! And then Daring escapes with the book and as she flies she looks back at the burning zeppelin and sees the bad guys singed hat floating in the air.

The Macon was filled with helium. Helium doesn't burn. The Macon crashed because of a design flaw that weakened the tail fins. The top one blew off in a sudden gust of wind, pulling the control cables with it which tore open three of the eleven gas cells in the tail.

And then we cut back to the university, where she gives the book to her professor friend. and then she's told a pony wants to talk to her about an old stone engraving.
