[introductory notes to cast and crews][mechanics of screenwriting][project SesQuaTercet][roles]

[science fiction] This story and its sequels turn the whole cosmos inside-out and present reality in a way you never learned it in the ordinary schools: It's about four post-doctorate university researchers, one woman, three men, who slip-out late one night, hop the fence at an obsolete USNavy yard, and peer inside a curious old rusting submarine roped to the dock ... but which is so modern that, one vehicle leading to another, they ride right out of this cosmos - a little astronomical, linguistical, mathematical, and systematical [ALMS Program] exploration. Subsequently returning to Earth, they find Earth-society subtly alien: and they retrace their steps to return to the infinite outercosmos, forever ... but not without leaving a trail - courtesy their college-smart tag-along - and thence commences a cosmic exodus.

[nota bene: some of the scenes-sets are production-identical]

The movie shall be available digitally recorded wide-screen [2:1] stereo-eyes-ed on disk and tape. The initial shoot shall be direct minute-by-minute to giga-byte hard-drive, 4 megapixels/frame, wavelet-compressed, copy-saved to CDROM - the digitized sound and music edited in synchronized frames, fractions of a second - and the final product released on 3D-HDDVideo Disk. The advantage of digital is its reproducibility for the future of both broadcast and movie-house. Image generation shall be further enhanced and assisted by state-of-the-art computer facility. The final result shall be viewable stereo-eyes-ed '3.5D' with white 'sexichrome' or polarized safety-goggles, and (more widely available) HDDVideo, and standard (telecined celluloid) 35mm film, as well as DVD/DTV and VCR.

[The music exampled and specified in the following outline and screenwrite is the Strategic-Director's selection from hundreds of CD's of existing works by artists whose timbre and lyrics fit each on-screen activity, and is not otherwise representative of project SesQuatercet and its purposes ... beginning with a little unstifled oratorio, it jumps right into the modern dance-rhythm musiques: a 'space-bopera']

Mr. Raymond Kenneth Petry, CS, BA, lecturer, is the author of FUNDAMENTAL CONTROVERSES: Christian Science Class Instruction * RKPetry, which takes-up the Holy Biblical Scripture as a synopsis of mankind's Scientific purpose on Earth - it is comprised of about 35 articles. Mr. Petry, 1973 graduate of UCSD, in mathematics, is a former crypto-TEMPEST engineer with Linkabit CORP [now, M/A-COM] of San Diego CA, on digital-radio satellite communications systems for the USA SAC/CommandPost [now reorganized and transferred]. He has served as the Vice President on his Branch Church Executive Board, and is Founder and current Trustee-Director of The Son Dey School of Christ Science and project 'lambhorn'. He has several science-fiction short-stories in his repertoire published at his SesQuatercet scripting site.

Abstract Overview


During a Spring break in our current era, four bright university laboratory researchers - four tall handsome clothes models - venture-out into the night to find happiness among the unknown technologies: Their obstacles begin with highways and mundane fences, and jump right into submarine and nuclear sciences, mathematics, celestial mechanics, astrophysics, cosmology, progressively demanding not only more intellect, but more skills, till they have achieved the seemingly very impossible, and left the entire cosmos itself! But even the outside view looking inward upon our cosmos poses thoughtful dangers, and they return home against a barrage of reluctance, disagreement, resistance, opposition, and ultimately, impossibilities and the new threat of being exposed under immanent alien law!

Mere days later as Spring returns, they must return to their own newly advanced studies - their outward-bound curriculae again - but as they've already been slightly discovered by aliens newly extant, they must drag-along one, a sister replacing their one wayward team-member - again, four tall handsome clothes models. They retrace their previous route with renewed intellectual vantage: looking at their once learned lessons from a perspective of cross-expectancy: and learning twice! This time at the top, they keep going all the way, never to return! And they learn even the very infinite has relative finites to learn, ceasely!

Their sets and settings include, a USNavy dockyard at night, open ocean travel at elevated speeds, confrontations with battleships, the South Pole glacial-ice-flow, and an under-ice research complex,  whole stuffed dinosaurs and un-Earthly animals, an escape-rocket to the backside of the moon, an immense underground space-port-complex full of starships for galactic travel, passing-up Jupiter and Neptune, accelerating to the speed-of-light, a swing-round a point-on-the-space-map, aether-slip-stream travel at super-light speed, an astronomically large metal-ring-city orbiting the event-horizon of a gigantic galaxy center 'black-gravity-hole', a cosmic-elevator, and outside our cosmos, a garden area, curious animals, golden-hued fruits, a sunless day and a focus-blinding-bright single-star semi-night, a sharp-edged sky telescopically speckled with infinitely-many 'black-gravity-hole' stars, a river edging the garden, a distant city, and rockets launching, reached by a golden yellow brick road, but then, their faces and hands glowing in the dark, a two shuttle-craft chase diving for the depths of the ring-city's host 'black-gravity-hole', a barrage of out-coming SafeGuard missiles from the moon, and more missiles from Earth, a crash-landing of the starship in the desert, and a hitchhike home with a famous driver. The retraced route is mostly set-similar until they cross the fields,  enter the supercosmosian domed city, its garden-scaped interior and observatory, and meet supercosmosians.

Back home, on the strangely similar alien Earth, the fiance of the sister follows her lead, and gives chase, taking his university nuclear chemistry class and grad-friends - hundreds of handsome clothes models - with him: Opening at her home cordonned-off by police - appropriately dressed - he discovers a vase with a speck of viable anti-matter, and presents this as a table-top experiment before his next evening class. The grad-friends rush to the desert, ten as an A-I-Response team, rent two helicopters to the UFO landing site where the USArmy investigates, start-up the crashed starship 'UFO', pick-up hundreds more of the students under a barrage of missiles, and relaunch for the moon, encounter a barrage of back-side SafeGuard missiles like a video-game, discover and muse more caverns and launch tens of starships, and the golden flag-ship, for fleet exercises, chase and protect his fiancee's starship when they eventually arrive (they got ahead) and leave the moon for the planets and the swing-point in-space, the aether-slip-stream, the galaxy center black-hole metal-ring-city, where they nuclear-battle space-aliens in starships, leave the fiance in the ring-city cosmic elevator, race back to protect Earth, the fleet battles the incoming aliens approaching and passing the moon toward Earth, they meet the alien survivors, who escape, and they video-link conference with the President of the USA, then leave, forever; the ring-city has been destroyed, and they pick-up a stranded team of supercosmosian data analysts, and head-out for near galaxies.

Roles (Props)

[ordinary persons: normal build, complete outline, erect form, standard height, regular weight]

[actor minima: professors, post-doctorates must have at minimum a degree of Bachelors of Arts or Sciences from an accredited college, plus the equivalent experience of furthering said studies, or highly technical employment, of 5 years - their fields should near the role, eg. emphasis in advanced mathematics for professor of same; graduate students must have the same degree; undergraduates need have 1 year of college sciences or mathematics or calculus - the idea is that actors are regularly intimate with their roles.]
