[index][screenplay][music][sets&settings][budget][prospectus][roles][casting and crews]
[feature] Cold War was the dish best served with chutzpah. But it's colder and funnier when the tiny duchy of Gran Fenwijk restarts the space race for international prestige by building the world's first nuclear powered skyhook and a traditional spinning roulette-wheel space-hotel at MEO; hires a headwaitress and invites the world's Presidents for its Grand Opening-Up and marriage-made-in-heaven finale... A light-hearted real-science satire. "This time the mouse captures all the world's big cheeses."
This is by design a Hollywood pro forma story expanding one science theory: the efficacy of a nuclear powered skyhook to MEO (middle Earth orbit) on 1/20th the length of a GEO (geosynchronous) elevator cable-- the expansion is what a little motive and effort might thereby accomplish.
The movie shall be available digitally recorded widescreen 2:1 stereo'eyes'ed 4Mpx 30 fps released on 3D-HD-DVD, HDDVideo, standard 35mm film (telecined celluloid), home-theater HDTV/DVD/DTV, VCR etc. (Stereo'eyes'ed 3.5-D is viewable with white sexichrome or polarized safety-goggles; The advantage of digital is its reproducibility for the future of both broadcast and movie-house.) The initial shoot shall be direct to gigabyte hard-drive; wavelet-compressed and copy-saved to DVD+RAM;- the digitized sound and music edited in synchronized frames-fractions of a second. Image generation shall be further enhanced and assisted by state-of-the-art computer facility.
[Music specified in this screenplay is the Strategic Director's selection from hundreds of CD's of existing works by artists whose timbre and lyrics fit each onscreen activity, and is not otherwise representative of project Sesquatercet and its purposes]

Facing a new financial crisis when secret Russian backing is cut-off, the US-dollar market collapses, Sunday morning teatime, in the Duchy of Gran Fenwijk.

The Professor, inventor of the Q-bomb (electrical Q), borrows phrase from his Duchess praising their Son's daily F-23 practice on the woodshed, for pulling their little country forward to new technological heights unforeseen, to invent his amazingly cheap sky-hook-to-space-orbit launcher: and the first space hotel ... it's real-science, real scenario.

The Duchess and Son convince NASA to launch the Professor's "communicationsing" satellite - 90 tons of Russian aluminum, two, thousand-mile coils of centimeter braid borazine-carbide nanofiber in canisters, a small nuclear power generator, and operation radio-controls - to MEO "Middle Earth Orbit".

And, with their one supersonic F-23 national-defense jet, a prior throw-away bargain from the USA, after its manufacturer lost that contract, their pilots fly up to catch the end of the cable, hang on and swing up to orbit, unload supplies at the construction site, and return ... the nuclear power supplying the pull to keep the orbit in full high swing.

The Professor describes his vision to the Fenwijkian building crew: a 100x20m casino-roulettish plate-wheel spinning upright, 1000 mile altitude over a great circle of the Earth, with light-strips up the red and black spokes and along the moss-green annulus. And the Son flies dozens of workers packed by 2's behind the Copilot seat, who remain in space building Gran Fenwijk's Hotel Gran MEO.

Months go quickly, troubles are handled ... a commercial jet gets in their path, and they abort back to Fenwijk; an incoming cometary dust cloud, and Son diverts and deploys a Sidewinder-X missile to fend, but he's diverted into the path of the International Space Station. Dismissing the effusive Fenwijkian apologies for the demise of the Station; the US Senator is suspicious about ex-orbit-ant [clue-word] fuel costs for the Duchess' Son's F-23, which she explains as con-comit-ant [clue-word] with training an additional pilot.

Son takes-in some small fishing; An applicant hires-on through an online advertisement for a cute spacey waitress in a remote diner, and gets the castle tour ... she's actually the US Senator's staid secretary daughter who takes the head-waitress secret-security-job in her bare-midriff miniskirt outfit. They take her up to the near-completed Hotel Gran MEO. She radio-calls Daddy to let him know what's really up.

Then Son takes the Duchess up to Hotel MEO for the Grand Upening, with the Copilot on her lap as she won't sit behind him and she likes flying, now. They settle in national-hotel-emblemed white-jacket dinner-formals as Maitre-de's; Duchess in nouveau spacer-regalia; the Fenwijkian workers reattired as waiters.

Grand Upening guests arrive, Presidents, Senators, Ambassadors, British Minister of Out-There, by orbit-transfer-vehicles capsules from Space Shuttles. The Waitress discovers a transient attired in formal angel-whites trying his Capitol EXtremes Games coin-tokens in keyholes and eating from the workmen's dinners, who'd been stowaway'ed aboard the OSHA Hotel Inspection Mission with a bag of tokens, and wants to go home (a super cameo role).

The Grand Upening buffet is held in the space-view-surrounded Grand Bouffe Room: Its ceiling vaults to top-dead-center view of the gravity-spinning hotel.

Trouble sparks when Grand Upening party cake flags are found switched between the Russian and USA cakes, by the earlier-taste-testing German President, and they stake them on the German's cake, dividing the icing east and west and mock-up nuclear-war over Germany's ignored surrender, posturing massive retaliations, ellipton bombes, new clear-missiles, and developing in the first-ever fork-flung cake-lobbing space-war.

The Russian and USA President climb above the uproar but coming closer in the height lose footing and bounce across the room and roll back down. The Duchess attempts to restore the party atmosphere, pulls out her garter pistol, and waving it, orders a cessation of hostilities. Guests restrain her from using a gun in a space but she blusters a shot at the wall—and ALL STOP as a 6-in. hole behind the Waitress, the air escaping, grabs her skirt, the Son heroically extracts her, and as the air thins, the hole shrieks sucking a bluish dancing vortex, meanwhile an astropilot restuffs a dinner turkey with dishes, and charges--retrograde--flying at his goal-hole, and plugs it--the hole squealing its last--and APPLAUSE! And then, the Son notices the waitress' plight and promptly hides her, begging forgiveness, and proposes, guests encourage prenuptial agreements and fashion a golden tablecloth wedding gown, and the pair join in the first holy space matrimony as waiters roll-out an already-decorated wedding-cake.

The Duchess is all grins as she's gotten two-birds with a single stowin'. And amid opening cans of sodas gushing-up foam, the scene closes on-- the transient playing electronic casino games in the background, jack-pots credits with triple Earth-planets, and bouncily exclaims, "There's no, place like, hoooommme..." (too bouncy for low gravity).

Epilog: The Duchess closes the bedtime storybook for three little gran'children; and the Royal Son and former-waitress Wife live happily ever after....
