So the first of the Space books: Space – Houston We Have a Problem is in the bag. The last batch of stories will be read by next week and authors will be notified.
So what next – good point?
Space – The Zeborian Singularity.
“In 1947 an alien craft crash-landed on Earth and the spaceship and its occupants were quickly taken to Area 51. Sadly, the aliens died but not before revealing who they were and what they stood for.
Over the next forty years NASA engineers back-engineered a device found onboard.
On January 28, 1986 the system was loaded onto the Shuttle Challenger and would be tested in space by the crew. The experiment was highly classified.
Sadly, the unconnected explosion activated the Zeborian Matrix and a singularity close to Earth formed. The wormhole provided an easy and quick way to move across galaxies and find new worlds but also it made it more accessible for Alien races to visit and possibly attack Earth.”
So once your ship either goes through the singularity or a ship comes to Earth – your story can start from there. No lines to include in this one.
