NSpock7Live Long And Prosper… Leonard Nimoy… You Have Been… And Always Shall Be… My Friend

In the last 6+ months I’ve lost two of my favorite people on the planet

Robin-Williams-robin-williams-23183012-2000-1330August 11th, 2014 – Robin Williams

And now, Leonard Nimoy

The truth is, I was so upset about Robin Williams, I couldn’t talk about it for months

But when I found out about Leonard Nimoy today, tears rushed to my eyes

There are people who inspire, and touch us in our lives

And he and Robin did

Robin has probably brought more joy to this world, than just about any one other person

And Leonard Nimoy

Well… He was a philosopher

Because this just happened today… I shall keep this brief

And I leave you with this

by DarkJade

Episode One

His Name Was McCormick

He Was Like No Star Pilot I’ve Ever Seen

Like No Star Pilot Anyone Has Ever Seen

But He Is Not An Easy Man

CAPTAIN ERROL FLEECE JUNUPO

MARS ATMOSPHERE

THE YEAR, 2144

BATTLE CRUISER XX7-5

CONFERENCE ROOM

“Carnos, Edden And Reno, the other three Fighter Pilots of Quadrant 6, were all dead… And I just sat back and watched them die.”

Captain Errol Fleece Junupo sits distressed, and sweating at the conference room table, awaiting his superiors arrival to the chamber.

Suddenly Admiral Essex’s, and his 2nd in command Captain Tri, arrive through the sliding door, accompanied by four other Star Cruiser Officials.

“I’ll spare you the details, but basically they didn’t hold me accountable for what had happened on the Mars surface, they just wanted a first hand account.

Whether it was the Zi-Qi, destroyers of our Earth, or the Quenlen, our once allies, now vanished into space, that killed our Scientists and Pilots, the fact remains, there’s nothing on Mars that can help us.

The colony is space ash.

Something did happen today that was interesting though… In order to replace the other three pilots in my Quadrant 6… They released three of our prisoners.

Oh, and they appointed me Captain of Quadrant 6.”

QUADRANT 6 QUARTERS

Two fairly regular looking blokes arrive, and introduce themselves.

“I’m Jenus… And this is Cole…” Jenus reaches out and shakes Fleece’s hand.

Cole just nods.

“So, what were you two in for?” Fleece asks as he sits back on his cot.

“Food fight…” suddenly speaks the quiet Cole.

“Food fight?” Fleece seems surprised.

“Yeah, we struck the Admiral in the back of his head with a food tray… Short story short, he locked us up for the last month,” interjected Jenus, as he too sat on his own cot.

Cole laid down as well.

“But where was our fourth pilot?”

FOUR HOURS LATER

As the three men sleep, their chamber doors open up, and two Star Cruiser Security escort in the final Pilot.

“You be good now McCormick… None of your funny business,” spoke one of the guards as he uncuffed the Seb 1 Handcuff Unit from behind McCormick’s back.

Now McCormick wasn’t a very tall man… But he wasn’t short either… Around 5’9″… But as he was released, his eyes glimmered, and gleamed, which Fleece caught a glimpse of as he was awaken by the men.

“McCormick… I can’t believe it… He’s been locked up for the better part of two years…”

Soon it was just McCormick and I laying their awake in the dark, while the other two men slept through the whole thing.

“Names McCormick…” spoke McCormick.

“Captain Junupo… But you can call me Fleece,” Fleece replied.

“You’ve heard of me I take it…” McCormick continued.

“Definitely…” Fleece replied.

“Good… Than you know not to count on me,” McCormick finished as he rolled over and fell immediately asleep.

CAPTAIN ERROL FLEECE JUNUPO

MARS ATMOSPHERE

THE YEAR, 2144

BATTLE CRUISER XX7-5

Upon the bridge of the XX7-5, Admiral Essex’s blood boils over as his 2nd in command, Joseph Tri, reports their findings.

“The colony is destroyed sir… Hard to say if the Zi-Qi did it, or…”

“Or what Tri?” the Admiral responds impatiently as he runs his large hardened hand over the top of his bald head staring at the large screen looking upon Mars surface.

“Well… Some of us feel it may have been the Quenlen on the way out of our galaxy… Sort of a farewell, and ##$@ off! If you know what I mean sir.”

With this Admiral Essex turns and faces Sergent Tri, “You think our allies of 50 years not only left us out here to rot, but took out our Mars colony as well…” the Admiral’s temper rises even more.

“It’s just a theory sir…” replies Sergent Tri.

“I don’t want theories son… I want facts… Now send down our science crew, and four accompanying Star Fighters,” and with this the Admiral left the bridge.

“Yes Admiral,” replied Sergent Tri, though the Admiral was no longer in ear shot.

Anime_Pilots_Starship_053113_“The Battle On Earth Had Been A Nightmare… So much so, that it was not allowed to be spoken about within the walls of any of Earth’s Star Cruisers.

This Is When I Came Into The Story…”

PILOTS QUARTERS QUADRANT 6

“Four pilots resided in these chambers… Four out of the 91 on board the XX7-5.”

Captain Errol Fleece Junopo lays on his cot silently, with his black, with green stripes, Star Fighter helmet over his face.

Star Pilot Sebastian Carnos enters the chambers… Standing 6’6″, he is a force to recon with.

“Fleece… Get up… Quadrant 6 is escorting a science vessel to the surface…” speaks Carnos.

“Alright…” replies Fleece, barely audibly.

ENTERING THE ATMOSPHERE OF MARS

FOUR STAR FIGHTER SHIPS, AND A SCIENCE VESSEL

“The Whole Thing Just Didn’t Sit With Me Right…

Why Did The Quenian Just Up And Leave Us.

Something’s Just Not Right…”

MARS SURFACE

WHAT’S LEFT OF THE MARS COLONY HALACRANE 12

The science vessel lands first, followed by the four star fighter ships.

Three of the pilots accompany the science team into the half destroyed entrance building.

Fleece remains with his ship, and lights up a shambo stick, something like a cigarette… The smoke is sucked out of the air, and goes out into the mars atmosphere.

“Something’s Just Not Right…”

Suddenly what’s left of the colony entrance building, explodes!

“Holy @#$%!”

Fleece ignites his engines, and lifts off the surface.

“MISSION IS ABORT! I REPEAT, MISSION IS ABORT… SCIENCE TEAM AND OTHER THREE QUADRANT 6 PILOTS KILLED WITHIN FACILITY… I AM OUT OF HERE!”

The Black Sand Castle rose as if it was some Dream Manifestation…

The Guards took the walls, their lives dedicated to their Queen…

Ambral…

Ambral, clad in black, with long black hair to her shoulders, strutted across the black sands that surrounded her castle…

Within the walls, her brother Eline would soon set march, 1,000 men strong, against the the White Clad Robotic Beasts that surrounded the Domed City of Ram Do Pla

Ambral knew that this was not right… That her brother would fall, or be taken prisoner, and tortured to death.

But Eline would hear no part of it…

Once his mind was fixated on something, there was nothing save death that would stand in his way…

Death would indeed.

Or so she had seen…

Meanwhile, some 120 miles away, the Maroon Armored Soldiers of Horden dropped from their ropes atop Ram Do Pla’s Dome, in an attempt to penetrate it… And make the city their own.

Three tribes would battle this day, and many other smaller tribes would wait to pick up the pieces, or form alliances with the victors.

Ambral’s eyes glowed Dark Blue Black as the visions filled her mind…

Horden’s men would fail…

And Eline would seem to be the victor, until the Equalizer Jarom would step in…

“I will never see Eline again…” she said out loud to herself as his armies formed, and departed for battle.

“What a sad, and useless day,” she concluded, as she made her way back into her castle.

Japan

The Year 2080

A Small City In Japan

Arata’s Home

Just After Midnight

Tokui quietly enters Arata’s house where he is staying.

To his surprise Arata is asleep on the lazy boy chair, with a huge Slurpee in his hand.

Tokui smiles slightly.

The room is a lit by the blue glow of Arata’s television.

Tokui tiptoes into the bedroom where he is staying.

Fortunately Arata has two bedrooms in his place.

Tokui takes off his shirt, and though his physique is in shape, there are many scars upon his upper body.

Around his neck is a black strip of thin leather, with a silver key hanging from it.

He takes a black metal box out of his military duffel bag, and sits it on the desk in the room.

He then removes the necklace with the key, and opens the box with it.

A luminous orange glow comes from the inside of the box…

Inside are some 50 or so small vials, filled with a liquid giving off an orange luminescent light.

Just as he’s about to take one of the vials out, Arata steps into the room rubbing his eyes.

“Well, well, look what the cat dragged in…” he says barely opening his eyes.

Tokui quickly shuts the metal box, and turns to face Arata.

“Sorry I woke you,” he speaks.

“Ah, nah man, you didn’t wake me… Hey, I have some turkey subs in the fridge, you hungry?” asks Arata as he steps out of the room, and into the kitchen.

Tokui follows.

Arata opens the refrigerator, and tosses Tokui a sandwich.

“Thanks man,” replies Tokui, who pulls off the paper wrap from one side of the sandwich, and starts to eat it.

“What were you doing in Tokyo City?” questions Ataka.

Tokui tosses his Hydro Bike’s keys at Arata, who barely catches them.

“Go take a look…” says Tokui.

Arata looks at the keys, then steps outside, only to see a brand new yellow AION 8000 Hydro Bike.

“Wow… Are you kidding me? An AION 8000… Those things are fast man,” he tosses the keys back to Tokui.

“And expensive…” adds Arata, as he closes the door.

“Don’t you wanta try it out?” asks Tokui.

“Not tonight man, it’s after midnight… Some of us work for a living,” they both laugh.

Tokui sits on the black couch, and Arata back in the lazy boy chair.

“How’d you afford that on what the military was paying you man?” asks Arata, as he eats his sandwich.

“I was sent a check for my father’s house, which was sold at a ridiculously low amount of money… Yet, enough to get that bike… And a bit more,” explains Tokui.

“I see… I’m really sorry about your father Tokui,” replies Arata.

“I know Arata,” replies Tokui.

They both eat, and don’t talk for a moment… Until Tokui finally breaks the silence.

“There’s something I need to tell you Arata,” speaks Tokui.

“Shoot,” replies Arata.

“There might be some trouble coming my way soon… And I don’t really want you to be put in any danger,” explains Tokui.

“Eh heh,” replies Arata.

“I wanted to stay with you for a while, but I suspect it’s going to be coming sooner than anticipated,” continues Tokui.

“What kind of trouble?” asks Arata.

“Lets just say, I suspect foul play was involved in my father’s death… And I’m not going to sit back and take it,” concludes Tokui.

“Well… It all seemed strange to me… I mean, your father really knew his work… And it just never made since that he died on the job,” replies Arata.

“Right… Well-” starts Tokui, but  Arata interjects.

“You’re staying her Tokui,” he says, then stands.

“Arata-” Tokui tries to speak again, but Arata stops him again.

“End of discussion… I’m going to sleep, you might consider getting some yourself,” is the last thing Arata says, before he goes into his bedroom and closes the door.

Tokui smiles a bit once more, then puts the second half of his sandwich in the fridge.

Tokui’s Room

Moments later he’s in his room again with the black bock open again.

He takes out one of the orange glowing vials, and swigs it.

The room spins, his eyes close, and he falls face forward onto the bed.

“I have failed you Kin… And now with both you, and Father gone… I am lost.”

“It is the Vengeance alone that keeps me going… Keeps me breathing… Keeps my heart beating”

“Though the Blood it pumps be black.”

“I have yet to prove that Mr. Mashahiro is behind both your disappearance, and father’s death…”

“But in my heart… And in my gut… I know it to be true”

“And so I will continue to train… Not as Tukui Shinsou, Military Pawn to a Government out for itself…”

“No… I am free of that now… But with what I’ve learned within those walls… There will be no escape”

“for Mr. Mashahiro… But It must be at the right moment… He is an extremely powerful, and well”

“guarded man… So I shall train hard, but at night, under a new identity… I will be Adauchi…”

“I will be…”

“Vengeance.”

The Year 2080

Tokyo City

Mr Mashahiro’s Home

4:24pm

Mr. Mashahiro is at his desk looking over some documents on his computer screen.

Within his chamber are two well armed bodyguards in white suits, and shades.

A late twenty something year old man in a grey suit enters the office. His name, is Juro.

“What is it Juro, I am very busy today… Trying to run an Empire here,” snaps Mr. Mashahiro without looking up at him.

“He was here… Sir,” replies Juro.

Mr. Mashahiro looks up at him bothered if anything. “Who was here?”

“Well… Not here… But across the street… Tukui Shinsou… Sir.” With this Juro swallows loudly.

Mr. Mashahiro stands, “You were supposed to keep men on him!”

“And we did… Sir… Which is what lead us… Here,” Juro replies.

“He was watching your home… Sir,” he finishes.

“Well then… Send him a singular warning… I will not tolerate anymore of his ‘watching’ me,” Mr. Mashahiro speaks, then sits back down at his desk and goes back to work.

Jiro bows, “Yes Sir… Consider it done.”

Jiro leaves the room.

Katsuo Industries

5:03pm

Tokui and Arata leave work.

“Hey, I’m going to go grab some noodles and fish… Care to join me?” speaks Arata.

“No… I mean… I have something I have to do in Tokyo City,” replies Tokui.

“Tokyo City?” Arata replies back.

Tukui gets on a hovering bus transport destined for Tokyo City, and waves back at Arata.

Arata scratches his head, and waits for his bus transport.

Tokyo City

A Hydro Bike Outlet

6:15pm

Tokui is purchasing an extremely expensive, and fast yellow Hydro Bike, black riding gear, and a helmet.

He pays the man in cash-tokens.

An Abandoned Factory

7:00pm

Tokui is inside an abandoned building training in a Hybrid, Military Taught Form of Martial Arts.

He’s fast… Very fast.

A Busy Nightclub

8:15pm

Tokui arives on his Hydro Bike, and parks it outside the club.

“AION 8000… Not bad,” speaks a man outside the club hanging with his buddy, referring to Tokui’s bike.

Tokui goes in the club.

It’s packed with hundreds of people.

It’s dark, with multi-colored lights over the large dance floor.

He goes to the bar and orders a blue drink.

Woman are all around selling themselves, and sleazy looking dudes are selling illegal stimulants.

30 Minutes later

Tokui has had a few drinks, when two large men approach him from behind wearing black suits.

“Can I help you two gentlemen?” Tokui asks without looking at them.

“Your name Tokui Shinsou?” one of them asks, holding a picture of Tokui. But somehow Tokui looks different than the photo… Darkness fills him, and it shows.

“The name’s Adauchi,” Tokui replies.

The two men look at one another, then one of them grabs Tokui’s soldier.

“You really shouldn’t have done that…” speaks Tokui.

In three moves he knocks both men to the floor, unconscious.

The bartender looks nervous, and several bouncers surround him.

He holds up Cash-Tokens indicating there’s more drinks to be had, and the bartender signals for the bouncers to remove the two unconscious men.

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.

BOULDER COLORADO

FEBRUARY 12TH, 2014

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.
