Mission to the Unknown- Act 2

Mission to the Unknown

ACT TWO – The unknown always leads to speculation, be it today’s society or three thousand years ago. Mankind has strived to explain the unknown, either by religious manuscripts or by science.

[Note : Before reading please read the beginning Chapter “The Black Stream of Energy – Act 1 ]

It wasn’t any different on May 30th, 2031 either, as astrophysicist Dr James Filmmore sent satellite CANUSA 1 into the unknown phenomenon only three light years away from earth. The whole world watched in awe, as CANUSA 1 entered into the fluctuation of space, only known as Dark Energy ( a cloaked wave of energy). With all the UFO sightings in the past 4000 years, its been loosely speculated, it could be the hide out for our alien visitors. However, the religious community strongly denied such a thing. The scientists were baffled, but were determined to explain this strange phenomenon with the help of science. As always, the various media used their spin on it, promoting more viewers to their platform. Media wasn’t about reporting the truth anymore, they were concerned in attracting an audience. In turn, advertisers would fund their objective goal of making money ; as long as the companies would see a return on their investment.

So you see. There it is. Our society ran on half-truths and the constant greed of the all-mighty dollar, believing what suited them the best.

Dr Filmmore’s goal concentrated on the hard science and only the science, to explain the unknown. However, after six months of loosing CANUSA 1, without receiving a shred of evidence, he had his doubts. How can a high tech state-of-the-art satellite send nothing back ? It was indeed baffling, to say the least. He knew he had to send humans, to get to the bottom of this ; James understood it had to be him, along with a committed team, because he couldn’t live with the thought of loosing anyone else. After loosing his daughter Jenni, it would be inconceivable to loose anyone on this mission. They had to be strong and have determined willpower, to make this mission successful. It was clear, Dr Filmmore and a small crew had to make a sacrifice for the betterment of mankind.

Three years past before James could find anyone crazy enough to fund his bizarre mission. He was all about to loose hope, when the most unusual source decided to take on his request. Entrepreneur trillionaire Mr Wiseman was well known for his 30 billion Vegas Resort “ The Wiseman Casino & Resort “ featuring science-fiction themed rooms on each floor, dedicated to Star Wars, Star Trek and the newest trilogy known as “Black Angels”. Apparently Black Angels related to a storyline about our ancient alien ancestors who discovered earth and were responsible for genetically transforming Ape-man into Homo-Sapiens. Black Angel fans were adamant the backstory was the gospel truth ! Mr Wiseman was extremely candid about Black Angels background, saying it explains why mankind are who they are today.

James Filmmore is a scientist and the mere speculation of another species on earth, wasn’t scientifically proven, as of yet. However, James wouldn’t turn down a trillionaire, no matter how eccentric he was. Any means of funding was essential to answering his “Black Energy Theses”.

It wasn’t for another two years before the legal requirements were ironed out, and it still wasn’t clear what Mr Wiseman motive was behind the funding. No matter. James and space engineers spent the next five years developing ‘Pegasus’, the most efficient streamlined spacecraft to ever be made in the 21st century.

Finally! On May 1st 2039, Pegasus was ready to launch on the aging Moon base ‘Lunar Surface Asset Deployment’ first built in 2029. Since then, NASA’s moon base now houses 3000 souls with diversified careers, from engineers, scientists, architects, to a brigade of chefs. It was an obvious conclusion, it would be a lot cheaper to send a spacecraft from the moon then to worry about the fuel costs and the constant gravity strains on earth.

Pegasus

Pegasus’ featured :

Nano-Mag – the newly development of magnesium based alloy with nanotechnology, changing the very fabric of this new flexible metal. In 2019, Magnesium based alloy was considered the World’s strongest and lightest metal until the nano feature made it stronger and lighter. In fact, it was so light, the membrane could easily be stretched by hand. So thin, the membrane was calculated in micro-milligrams ; thinner than human membrane cells.

No Windows – although it didn’t have the conventional gold-plated windows, it’s AI computer would allow any pilot to see the exterior with its new imaging system. First developed in 2020, VR ( virtually reality) by game developers, such as XBox and PS4, investors took the next step to using it for passenger airplanes. In 2025, commercial aircrafts saved money by introducing this new technology.

Computer-voice operated – the pilot can easily instruct the spacecraft by merely giving it a verbal command.

Ion Thrusters – “ionizes a neutral gas by extracting some electrons out of atoms, creating a cloud of positive ions. These thrusters rely mainly on electrostatics as ions are accelerated by the Coulomb force along an electric field. * “ Top-of-the-Line engine.

Interior Gravity Force – After NASA studies of humans-in-space, it was clear bone density and long term solar radiation greater effected the astronaut crew, that head to Mars in 2030. Therefore, it was essential to have artificial gravity within the interior of the spacecraft.

Lumbar Sponge Seats – a new form of nano-sponge, automatically shapes to any human form, causing less discomfort on our backs and tailbones. First designed by NASA and used by Tesla in 2030, it made long distance trips strapped to a seat more enjoyable. However, crew members had their own private quarters to catch-up on their sleep, so it was indeed something Dr. Filmmore insisted on because of his poor back.

Emergency Sub-Craft “Gemini” – in case of emergency, a backup mini craft with a beacon was necessary. Its automatic trajectory was earth.

Of course, the Pegasus had all the necessary supplies, firearms, tools, and scientific equipment for any long deep space voyage. As well, the ship was capable of travelling at an nominal speed of 140,012 km per hr ( 87,000 miles/hr) expected to reach its destination in 2.6 years. Pretty much like satellite CANUSA 1 did previously. This time (with humans aboard) it was crucial they didn’t disappear without a trace, like its predecessor.

THE MISSION

The crew of four were trained in long distance space voyages. Of course, Dr. Filmmore was the lead astrophysicist in charge of the whole mission. After 5000 specialized candidates, three astronauts were selected.

Doctor Zulu : He’s an esteemed specialized Geneticist and physician in his 40’s, African-American, who seemed more carefree then a man of science. However, when it came to the nitty gritty, his genius kicked in. His nickname is “Dr Gene” for his noble prize in genetics. On his birth certificate, it’s Femi Zulu Mud. Femi apparently means “adored by god”.

Twenty pounds overweight (by NASA’s terms) but he won out due to his skills.

Navy Flight Officer Devyani Stone : Devyani is of East India descent from Canada 🇨🇦, who became a Navy Flight Officer, simply because she loves to fly. She is the best-of-the-best when it comes to flying any craft on earth, only in her 30’s. Her name Devyani means “ Like a Goddess, Serving the gods, Chariot of the gods, One invested with divine power (Daughter of Shukraacharya); Like a Goddess“.* Without a doubt, she was indeed a Goddess with her charm and stunning looks. Due to her Emerald-green eyes, everyone close to her, nicknamed her “Jewel”. Along with jet black hair, her complexion stood out. A strong intellect with a passion in ancient history. In this mission she is the Pilot controlling the craft.

Biologist Alisha Forman : Last but not least , Alisha is dedicated to the scientific study of life and all living forms. Original from Sweden, she graduated from Cambridge with a PHD in molecular biology. In her late 20’s, Alisha has a strong love for animals, caring and fighting for. Due to her beliefs, she refuses to eat meat and an activist. Not liked much for her strong opinions, she’s still considered the best biologist in the world. Unfortunately no one has ever given her a nickname. Dr. Filmmore is only concerned with her expertise.

The crew is ready for the long mission ahead. It will take every ounce of sacrifice to make this a successful mission. The mission to the unknown has just begun!

Holocaust against Humanity – Phase One

Holocaust against Humanity

FORWARD : I wrote ‘Holocaust against Humanity’ back in 2015. After what I see happening with our recent series of events in United States, it’s alarming how our society is becoming cold and calculating, with both sides, using defensive children as bait. As young as 5 years old, children are pawns intertwined with a political agenda.

It’s becoming an inhuman society, based on greed, entitlement and money.

Once you’ve taken the conscious step to cross over the line, you now have become this evil entity within.

Please enjoy my science-fiction horror ; it just may be closer then you think.

YEAR : 2075

The robotic revolution was upon us.

It was common place to see androids from all walks of life, from space exploration to household protectors.  The world reknown Dr Ford created the first entertainment park called WESTWORLD.

Back in 2015, Steven Hawkins warned us,” Artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race”.

But no one took Steven’s advice.

At first androids were clumsy, to the point of even being comical. So, the thought of androids controlling mankind was preposterous, to say the least. All the ‘Terminator Trilogy’ movies heed caution, but again, it was just a bunch of science fiction.

Really, what could possibly go wrong?

Celebrations bringing in the New Year 2045 started off very promising, with new heights to space exploration.

Mankind had finally established a Mars colony after three failed attempts. Galileo III ( predecessor of satellite Galileo) explored our cosmic gas giant Jupiter for a third time. Scientists knew from previous missions, Jupiter didn’t have a land mass like earth, but were amazed to find a massive ocean swirling beneath the volatile atmosphere composed of hydrogen, helium and nitrogen.

The next question on everyone’s mind,” Could life really exist on Jupiter after all?”

After the discovery of sea life on Titan, it was logically the next step to assume Jupiters oceans could also be teaming with an alien form of life.

Exploration was going as planned until the fateful day on July 10, 2045, historical became known as ‘Black Friday’ when everything suddenly came to an immediate halt.

Life on Earth changed drastically, after our moon barely recovered from the most disastrous collision of any asteroid before it, appropriately named ‘Black Death’.

Black Death hit the side of the moon on July 10, 2045 at exactly 14:01 hrs PST.

It was only 20 meters round, but it’s composition of solid black ore pulverized our lunar satellite at speeds calculated at over 60 kilometers per second. It literally knocked our moon off its axis, catapulting precariously into an irregular elliptical orbit around earth.

The newly formed moon colonies never had a chance.

Earth’s land mass changed drastically due to the new gravitational pulls on our ocean tides. New lands were formed while existing land formations, such as New York, succumbed to the unexpected tsunami waves. Four million souls lost their lives that dreadful day in New York alone, but they weren’t the only ones effected. Vancouver Island, Baja California, San Diego and half of L.A. disappeared. Worldwide, 600 million people were swallowed up by the sea.

Mankind adapted, but Earth was never the same.

Earth was a colder place, as moon dust surrounded our globe, hiding our precious sun. The race for survival and humanity, quickly produced new technology, from automated unmanned vehicles called ‘Spinners’ to more efficient military androids to control the masses.

Everyone marvelled the massive Spinners swirling about, like beacons of stars, preformed to dissolve the dust crystals within our stratosphere. The filtration system effectively allowed our Sun to shine on earth once again.

But, politics had changed for the worst.

After the disaster, worldwide sects of survivalist tried to rule the earth, each with their own fascist dictatorship. Religious groups banned together, forming from the ‘Christian Knight Saviours’ to the muslin ‘Revelation Crusaders’.

All believed they were the RIGHT PASSAGE TO GOD.

It was true, as said in the verse, 2 Timothy 3:1-17

“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.”

Hundreds of thousands died by the sword of RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Governments with large enough military forces barely survived, while the weak failed miserably. United States banded together with Canada while all of Europe formed their own allegiance. South America and Mexico became known as the ‘Savages Territory’, completely ruled by drug cartels and sect dictators.

United States formed the strongest military opposition ever seen before.

The newly appointed female President, Christine Jefferson was sworn in as the 60th President of the United States on November 20, 2060. President Christine Jefferson introduced a Bill, referred to as the Committee of Automation, whereby congress quickly approved, in order to begin immediately production of the military androids. It was their only recourse to maintain control of the government.

After a bloody war against the fascist religious sects, it was sworn man made religion would never be a part of mankind ever again. Only a spiritual GOD was allowed within the new DARK society.

With complete military rule, it was hard to believe it could possibly get worse, but it did.

On August 7, 2065 President Christine Jefferson appointed in a new list of judges who were NOT human. The new Supreme Court Judges were athletically logical, and completely android with the most sophisticated AIA brain, capable of making any judgement in seconds.

They surpassed human judges a thousand times over.

There were Ten Appointed Judges, each with a selected name:

1. Titan – Judge of Warfare

2. Zion – Judge of Apocalypse

3. Damian – Judge of Deceit

4. Zeus – Judge of All Rules and Final Convictions

5. Athena – Judge of Fairness

6. Aphrodite – Judge of the People

7. Cyprus – Judge of All Land

8. Calypso – Judge of Scientific Discovery

9. Atlas – Judge of High Court

10.Prometheus– Judge of Exploration

The first five years, the android judges did a remarkable job, cleaning up the riffraff of society causing serious harm to others. A select marketing team started a campaign across the world, referred to as :

“Androids Now! Securing your countries future. Isn’t it time YOU feel safe?”

The campaign made a bold statement how an android judge would help lock in security, adding a better quality of life. And, as an added bonus, each country who orders in the next 24 hours will receive an army of precision androids, at no extra cost. (*Shipping and taxes NOT included)

Countries scrambled to place in their orders, no matter what the cost! The unruly chaos made it a no brainer.

Soon, without anyone realizing the consequences, carbon copy android judges ruled each and every country across the world. Activists were swiftly silenced where hundreds of thousands mysterious vanished off the face of earth.

Rumours began to spread.

It was said children were taken away from their parents, shipped off to Mars to work in slave camps, mining precious minerals.

To keep the masses calm, an officially statement was released by Aphrodite herself; after all she WAS the, ‘Judge of the People’. Aphrodite was the most pleasing android of them all, fair skinned, brilliant sapphire eyes, athletically formed female body along with long braids of beautiful synthetic gold hair. Her soft voice added a sense of calmness, captivating any unsettled audience.

It was hard NOT to like her, in fact, most adore her.

Aphrodite announced to her people, ” Please do not be alarmed my children. I’m here to protect YOU and your future. Those in question have been detained in a federally inspected compound secured within an undisclosed area on Mars. Don’t worry, their needs are well looked after. It’s in the interest, welfare and safety of my beloved children.”

The crowd swallowed it up, hook, line and sinker.

It was rumoured the room was filled with a calming drug known as Oxycodoise, a derivative gas forming agent from the original Oxycodone. Like heroin, it’s sedative effects created a euphoric state of complete calmness.

With all the restrictions and techniques used to calm the masses, humans were still hard to control. Officials struggled to control a radical underground group known as, ‘The Freedom Fighters‘. THEY whispered the words, “These judges are nothing more than Executioners of the Free World”.

The word, “Executioner” went viral.

Freedom Fighters began spreading the word of fear across the world, stating unruly people were being rounded up and disposed of by means of an electrical gas chamber, as their children were rounded up to become slave labourers.

It was said to be the new Holocaust against Humanity – Phase One.

This holocaust made all other genocides in the past look like a picnic.  By 2070, the Executioners took away the freedom of expression and by 2075, they resolved the governments of the world, bringing in a military ruled government completely controlled by the Ten Judges.

It was named, ‘The United World of Americas’

Human Beings were no longer in control of their destiny.  Mankind became slaves to their own creation. It was the beginning of our Living Hell.
