[stereo-eyes-ed '3.5D' movie-version rating: PG/13]
story by Mr. Raymond Kenneth Petry, Strategic-Director
[science fiction] ... 16 years later the real planet Pluton has
been found beyond the edge of our Solar system, and 29-year old Mi-Kee
(Michelle-Keela) Thomaine, grown-up long since her 8th grade virtual command
aboard her summer-fun ride at the NASA Deep-Space Simulator-Trainor Facility,
returns as a qualified NASA captain, albeit pregnant ... and this trip
is for real: A month from Earth, in deep-space they rendezvous with Pluton,
and begin the search for newEarth and Jehovah's people, or whatever space
aliens may be found way-out there. [The concept
is that StarTrails II is the reality follow-up to a thorough virtual training]
[The music exampled and specified in the following screenwrite is
the Strategic-Director's selection from hundreds of CD's of existing works
by artists whose orchestral timbre and lyrics fit each on-screen activity,
and is not otherwise representative of project SesQuaTercet and its purposes]
[sandstorm follows, then the rebel forces herding the assault on newEarth]
INT - SPACESHIP COMMAND DECK - DEEP SPACE, PLANET RE-NEARING
a sand storm follows from behind the in-coming comets, then non-ballistics,
spaceships, MI-KEE orders communications, nav-radar, engineering beacon,
science-scan all shut down electro-optical transmissions
<new storm looms on DISPLAYS>
<to display, then keys>
We've got more incoming!
But nav-radar can't resolve it!
Captain: We have a sand-storm, in-coming!
Hang in tight: Shield us with the big iron!
<EXPLOSION-FLASHES BEHIND BIG-IRON>
We have reacceleration of the big iron!
Helm: Keep us ahead of the changes!
<SHIP REACCELERATES to match big-iron>
Well: Now we know how they accelerate the comets.
They take a huge asteroid, a hundred kilometers across, drill-out perforations
around a central circular projectile-mass, sink a nuclear device down to
the bottom of one of the holes, wait for the right aim, and when it detonates,
it shears the projectile-mass at its perforations, and shatters its base
into sand and gravel, thrusting the big main mass forward: a crude but
effectual nuclear cannon.
Think they'd do that with a moon of Neptune? Or Pluto and Charon?
That's an interesting speculation....
The sand storm has cleared.
<pause then continues>
Maybe Pluton was denser at one time.
More likely they find big asteroids further out here in the Kuiper Belt.
<music new ominous tones>
Shut-down all electronic transmissions!
<SEVERAL DISPLAYS SHUT-DOWN>
<passive displays show UFOs sidling-up>
Do you think they know we're here?
