Episode One – Judgment Day

A young girl wakes in her bed, sweating and crying… She looks to be maybe 11, with long black hair, with light green eyes.

Her upstairs bedroom is dark, but there appears to be a bright light coming from outside her bedroom window.

Fearlessly, she stands, and makes her way to the window.

Outside her parents two story home, there are six men standing on their lawn… Each of their eyes are glowing, as they look up towards her window.

One of their mouths start to move, but she can not hear them through the glass window.

He then holds out one hand, palm up…

Come with us,” she’s able to make out, before she wakes again… It was a dream… Only a dream.

A SMALL HOTEL ROOM

10:14AM

Twenty eight year old Peter Doran, a reporter from Denver Colorado, sits on the end of his double sized bed in his hotel room in Boulder Colorado. Peter has short blondish, brownish hair, a medium build, and is wearing jeans and a white button up shirt, the top button open.

He lights a cigarette as he watches the news report on the television.

NEWS REPORTER: WE’RE LIVE HERE IN WASHINGTON D.C., WHERE PROCEEDINGS HAVE BEGUN FOR SELF MADE BILLIONAIRE JOHN BLACK, OF MOTIVE INDUSTRIES. JOHN BLACK, ONE OF THE 12 BILLIONAIRES INVOLVED WITH THE PLANNED PRIVATELY FUNDED 2018 MISSION TO MARS, HAS, ACCORDING TO RESOURCES, BEEN CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTING TO LAUNCH THE FIRST PROTOTYPE OF THE SHIP TO BE USED, JUST TWO DAYS AGO, IN THE SAHARA DESERT. NOT ONLY IS THIS FOUR AND A HALF YEARS PREMATURE TO THE PLANNED MISSION, BUT THOUGH HE IS INDEED ONE OF THE 12 FUNDING THE PROJECT, HE DID NOT INCLUDE ANY OF THE OTHERS IN WHAT WAS TO BE AN EXTREMELY EARLY, AND THUS DANGEROUS LAUNCH. NOT TO MENTION EXPENSIVE.

“Crazy billionaires… Think they can do anything,” speaks Peter as he takes a long hit off his cigarette, puts it out, grabs his jacket, and heads out the door.

WASHINGTON D.C.

COURTROOM OF THE HEARING

John black, a 6’3″ man, very handsome, with grey and black hair, 53 years in age. Stands before the court, with six sharply suited lawyers at his side. He himself is wearing an extremely expensive dark blue suit, which has very thin grey pin stripes, barely visible, yet just visible.

His eyes are brown, and gentle, and he has a grey and black goatee.

An angry looking Judge speaks.

“John Black, do you understand what you did is against the law… That not only did you endanger the lives of your crew, by trying to launch a vessel that is not ready, but you were also using a ship which has been paid for by eleven additional investors, beyond your own investment?” speaks the Judge.

John is silent for a moment, then replies. “There were to be 11 prototypes before the final vessel was made… I merely took the first prototype, which is in fact, one twelfth of the over all cost. I simply cashed out early.

HaHaHa many laugh within the courtroom.

The Judge does not look pleased. “Well… Even if that is the case, the fact that you were using a prototype, as opposed to a fully prepared ship, did indeed put others, as well as yourself, in danger.”

“Judge… It is in my strongest estimation, that each of the ships would in fact end up being exactly the same… This preliminary design has been ready for ten years, it was just a matter of finding the right investors… Which, in the end, didn’t end up being a government… And instead, a group of 12 investors. That being said, this ship, once again in my estimation, was indeed ready,” explains John.

“Then why create 12 ships?” replies the Judge.

“A formality, your honor… A precaution… But not a necessity… In my estimation,” finishes John.

The Judge seems stumped.

“Council, step into my quarters,” speaks the Judge, as he steps away from his chair.

NORTH CAROLINA

12:33PM

Little eleven year old Raven, the black haired girl who had been dreaming the night before, stands out in the middle of the street in front of her house, which is a culdesac.

She peers up into the sky… Just staring, for close to a half an hour before her mother notices her from their house kitchen window.

“What is Raven doing?” she asks her husband, who then looks out the window.

He sees several of her friends playing with a ball on the lawn, and Raven in the middle of the street.

“I don’t know? Maybe looking at a bird, or a plane?” he replies.

“She’s been sitting there for a half an hour… Can you check on her Richard,” requests Raven’s mom.

“Sure hun,” he replies, then heads out where Raven is.

“Whatcha doin babe?” he speaks to her, but she does not reply at first.

Then she looks over at him, her light green eyes barely visible beneath her dark bangs.

“How long have they been living amongst us Daddy?” she asks.

“Who hunny?” he replies.

She doesn’t reply, but merely looks back into the sky.
