Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
And We Are Back! [ Jan 3, 2022 ]
Hope everyone had a great holiday. We've got plenty of exciting story ahead for 2022. So, don't miss a moment, because things are heating up.
For those who contributed to our Roswell, Texas Rides Again Indiegogo campaign, we are putting the finishing touches on the book, and hope to get it to press soon.
Cut to another space-scene: a green world is the backdrop of a space battle. Li narrates from a cameo inset:
Li: Barnhill was a pretty good strategist.
Li: In those days the city depended largely on agricultural planets for food production.
Li: So he went after our food sources.
Another space-scene, now captial ships are blasting asteroids.
Caption (Li): ‘They also went after our principal mineral sources.
Caption: ‘At first they captured some operations and kept the products for themselves.
Caption: ‘Later, as they met more resistance, they simply destroyed them.’
Much younger versions of Alyss, Li, Enrique Colón, Kofi Ansari, a human Jorge Ansari, and Hari Copperton gathered in a warehouse, intently poring over data on their screens.
Caption: ‘Everyone looked to the city founders – who came to be called the ‘Pillars’ – to find and obtain new sources for vital supplies.
Caption: ‘Also, to find allies and use diplomacy to end the hostilities.’
Back to the control cabin of Li’s ship.
Bok: Yeah, that’s all in the history files. But what was your role here?
Li: Hey, this is my story and I’ll tell it how I want.
Li: Besides, I was just getting to that.
