I’m a fan of Star Trek ever since I was a kid. Today, we’re thrilled to be continuing our Star Trek Mission with the new TV Series ‘Star Trek Discovery’. In Season Two, I found similarities with my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ to the “New Eden” Episode 2 #StarTrekDiscovery
OK – Where do I begin: Believe vs Science – the two are my life’s goal & written screenplays, to the age old question,”Who made us ?”
Twenty years ago I began writing my thoughts of how religion controls the masses vs an Intelligent humanoid species who came to earth 100 – 300,000 yrs ago, changing ape-mans DNA. This has followed me ever since I began questioning the roots of man-made religion, when I was 10 years old. It was only when I was 30, where my thoughts appeared on paper.
Fast forward another twenty years later, I have finished writing my screenplay ‘BLACK ANGELS’ :
LOGLINE : Drug addict war hero seeks revenge for brother’s death, risking his crew in mining expedition on planet ALPHA XL-420 for priceless Red Crystal, essential to saving their species from deadly virus.
It’s the beginning…
BLACK ANGELS is my take on an Alien Intelligent Species coming to earth in haste, to save their species from a deadly virus. To use, control & further their DNA; in fact, the Sirian species crossed their DNA with Ape-man.
However, because the Sirian Species altered the evolutionary timeline of Ape-man, human beings today have serious emotional side-effects, such as anger, hate and so on… but that’s another story.
In my screenplay I answer what happens to our ancestors. For example,”Have they even left or are they still monitoring their DNA creation today ?”
‘BLACK ANGELS’ is only the beginning, as I explore the possibilities, not just from our “Past Ancestors”, but as well as the “Present” and “Future”. With adjoining science-fiction stories, I have explored many avenues, such as Alien Abduction Report – Earth Missions 2013.
Getting back to “New Eden”, Season 2 – Episode 2 on Star Trek Discovery, I thought it was interesting #StarTrekDiscovery writers explored “New Eden” using the “Red Angels”, while my story is related to “Black Angels”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT implying they’re stealing my storyline. It’s just coincidence, simply because we’re all thinking about how religion came about vs the science. As science-fiction writers, we speculate & explore all possibilities.
In Episode 2 ‘New Eden’ I would like to think, is a continuation from my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ in a future setting. It’s goes in correlation with my theory on our founding ancestors, who started the genetic process of mankind.
IF you’ve watched Episode 2, ‘New Eden’ it explores the mysterious ‘Red Angel’ removing a group of humans off earth during WWIII, placing them in a new world, light years from earth, where Captain Pike & crew happens to find them by a beacon. It’s illogical to assume humans had warp capability until “First Contact”*, therefore there must of been some sort of intervention from an intelligent alien race.
As said, in “Black Angels” my story starts in the very beginning of mankind’s existence. An experimental “Eden” took place, as the Sirian Gods altered Ape-man into the Homo-Sapiens we are today. Here’s an introductory video I made.
In conclusion, it’s nice to see Captain Pike again on Star Trek and I certainly love how the writers are going with Star Trek Discovery.

* Star Trek: First Contact plot starts in the 24th century when Captain Jean Luc Picard “disobeys orders and heads for Earth, where a single Borg Cube ship holds its own against a group of Starfleet vessels.” It’s then they continue its pursuit on the Borg only for them to disappear.
“As the sphere disappears, Enterprise discovers Earth has been altered – it is now populated entirely by Borg. Realizing the Borg have used time travel to change the past, Enterprise follows the sphere through the vortex.
Enterprise arrives hundreds of years in its past on April 4, 2063, the day before humanity’s first encounter with alien life after Zefram Cochrane’s historic warp drive flight; the crew realizes the Borg are trying to prevent first contact.”
