About

It may be an imperfect future, but it's ours.

On a planet formally known as Earth, The planet’s nations observe the 20th anniversary of the “Rapture.” The event that saw the exodus of most of the planet’s inhabitants to outposts such as the Moon, Mars and Europa. With the Earth’s resources effectively expended, the world’s “First-world” nations and their support nations left for "curated" outposts where their environments were altered to be inhabitable.

With the “First -world” nations abandoning Earth, many of the first nations people’s reclaimed their former countries.

Almost immediately after the ratification of the “Turtle-Island Accord”, the Earth started to recover. While still a hostile place to live because of extreme weather, the Earth was healing.

Where did the first nation’s peoples get the finances to build infrastructure etc.?

Before the Rapture, a group of prodigies, geniuses and brainiacs, with the help of a tribal grant, made fantastic inventions and breakthroughs. These breakthroughs led to technology being sold to the governments of the world and life the world over changed almost overnight. This company becomes the most well-known and profitable business of all-time, StarBridge Systems.

The Brat pack 

The group of megaminds tasked with inventions devised a method to store information and energy within Dark Matter. There was no need for physical servers or ‘clouds’-data and energy, knowledge and power could be hidden in a magical dimension it seemed.A company was formed with the money and brain-power. Starbridgesystems was born.

Trillions poured into the coffers of several first nations and with the money they were able to research and develop their own space programs and achieved energy and financial independence.

With the technology created by the Bratpack, countries created weapons of war called Mayga-Mega. Immense space-hopping craft powered by some sort of dark energy through the use of Darkmatter .

Tensions in space quickly escalated and a war nearly broke out. As if by divine decree, the Sun erupted in a fantastic flash that is known as the ‘Great Spark’. The strange materials that made up the Meyga-Mega were obliterated and everything that relied on the Darkmatter technology was destroyed or useless. Much of the world’s recorded history was lost. After all the technological advances humans made, they were done and thrown back into the industrial age.

S9is a salvage craft owned by Doty. The skipper's family makes money by salvaging Meyga-mega and other abandoned space-junk. They have a lead on a job that could set them for life when their diver and father, James is killed in an accident in space. Doty is forced to take out a large loan from a shark in ABQ and has but days to deliver the interest to the loan. If she can make it to the salvage soon, she and her family could be set for life. But before she can claim her treasure, she must find a space-diver to excavate. If she cant find a replacement diver, she will lose not only S9 and its Gospel lander, but could risk her career as well.

How does she handle a space-wreck, a space pirate named Shaggy,a universe wide conspiracy and family problems? 

“With wit and grit" as Doty likes to say.

 I want to tell a little family story, in a little corner of this vast universe. A family story with comedy and people can relate to. We have this amazing stuff to play with politically, entertainment-wise, philosophically.

I have several episodic arcs laid out and have the inked pages for 10 pages of the first issue. I would like to tell another story in the back of each issue as a backup story. It is about one of the inventors of the dark-matter tech who goes missing when he grows up.
