I walked across a desert as a school of thirty-foot long magenta and iridescent blue fish, perhaps a vision, swam past me. More glided by. I stuck my hand out—it went inside a fish. Much to my surprise, all of them became transparent and disappeared. This was a dream, a realistic event.

It started raining. Not far away, in the darkness, an unknown Aulew man glanced at me. Suddenly, the rain and the Aulew crumbled.

Now I was at the top of a snow-covered mountain. I continued on, then paused near the edge of a cliff. Above me, clouds broke apart. To my left, several feet beyond a boulder, a hundred and eighty-foot diameter disk shaped ship, an alien white vessel without any windows or hatches, a craft that didn’t resemble IN5, touched down. The peak and ship dissipated.

Instantaneously, I was inside a room. Outside a window, a dust storm moved across a desert. The window vanished.

Far away, a bird flew over a mountain. Within seconds, both exploded like fireworks—the pieces morphed, becoming pink sunflowers. Much to my surprise, they enlarged until each flower was forty feet high. They faded. A sandstorm swept across a desert, toward many stovepipe cacti. All the cacti moved away from me. Soon they got bigger until they were six thousand feet high. When they were several hundred yards farther away, they changed into different shapes, hazy skyscrapers. All around them, a desert went out of focus.

The skyscrapers and desert disappeared—were replaced by several six-foot tall orange humanoids, all of their faces cast in shadows. I looked closer, noticing they didn’t have any eyes, just empty eye sockets. Without warning, the alien’s deep-set eye sockets, a charcoal gray, changed into a different color, indigo. As I watched in amazement, their bodies began morphing, turning into humanoid shapes covered by small oval facets. Soon the beings, entities surrounded by fog, lightened until they blended in with the background.

Someone tapped my shoulder. My eyes opened.

Beneath a dimly lit ceiling, I noticed Onen’s head, a silhouette, his face hidden in darkness.

He stepped back. “Although we’re a long way from Rhol, you need to get up. You’re infected.”

I climbed out of the chamber slowly, feeling groggy.

“What’s the problem?” I yawned.

“When you were asleep on D three P, a worm burrowed into your wrist and laid several eggs. They are almost ready to hatch. I’ll have to cut them out or else you will get mutated hepatitis B and die in a few days.”

“Did you discover the eggs?” I broke out in a cold sweat.

“No. LR one told me. They appeared during a routine absorption spectroscopy probe. Come with me. It’s time to operate.”

“During the probe, did he use ultraviolet and infrared light to study my molecular tissues?”

“Yes.”

We left the room. On a wall, a tiny hole, a door, expanded. We entered.

I said, an amazed tone, “I’ve never seen this room before.”

“Thirteen days ago, I learned more Woys hieroglyphics. After I rearranged them eleven times, using Woys voice commands, the door to this room opened.”

Not far away, a couple of round shapes came out of the floor. Much to my surprise, they morphed, changing into a two-foot diameter mound and a silver chair. I sat down. At the top of the mound, a vertical slit opened like a mouth. Onen reached inside the slit, pulled a squid- shaped drill out, then aimed it at my wrist. At the front of the drill bit, a one half-inch diameter tube expanded, and attached to my wrist. Somewhere near the front of the tube, a sharp blade punctured my skin.

“That hurt,” I blurted.

Onen examined my wrist. “Was it extremely painful?”

“Yes, but it only lasted a second. Are you finished?”

“No.”

“Owww!” I howled at the top of my lungs.

“It’s almost over. I altered this Woys drill, but it’s the first time I’ve used it on a real patient.

“I thought it would be painless.”

“Considering that I ripped out a one inch diameter chunk of flesh and part of your ulna, and replaced them, it could have been a lot worse.” The tube retracted. He placed the drill inside the slit. “All the eggs have been removed.”

“My wrist stings. It hurts like hell.”

“Understood. If it doesn’t get better in a couple of hours, I’ll look at it.

“Now, let’s discuss a more important topic. During this trip, your body has evolved. Several images, the results of an absorption spectroscopy analysis, are available. Would you like to see them? “

The adventures of Darius and his friends, inhabitants of another universe.

Darius and his friends, occupants aboard an alien space ship one these cloned humans landed on when they were infants, are headed for an unknown destination.

The early morning sky was clear, without a cloud. Close to the horizon our sun, the star S4, was shining brightly. My thoughts shouldn’t have been so somber.

All thirty of us twenty-year-olds had been living on this small island, Hopely, in Ori’s northern hemisphere, for most of our lives.

When all of us were sixteen, everyone began dating. Just over three hundred sixty-five days ago, each couple moved into their own tent because they wanted more privacy.

I thought about our guardians, three four-foot tall male human-like robots, Onen, Dost and Tryss, silver androids whose tiny internal nanomotors, photonic computers, photonic conduits, and cables rarely malfunctioned and were easily repaired. I wished I knew who had created those brilliantly well-designed robots.

Another topic crossed my mind. For several years, our interferometric telescopes had picked up radio signals, messages coming from a mountaintop about 22 miles from us, beyond a channel. One signal, “Ri Na ii,” confused us. We couldn’t tell if it was the name of a planet or a star. Unfortunately, the rest of the signals resembled the first one. According to Onen, our telescope’s software, an application that searched through 310 language databases, including English and Gost, couldn’t translate anything.

There was another mystery. The messages were sent out randomly, not on any specific day. According to our galactic charts, just over 2,104,000 miles from us, there was a planet named Biuus. Had we picked up part of several messages that came from Biuus? Perhaps we had only picked up the lower end of the radio-interferometric spectrum.

Other signals were sent to a location that was close to Ara, a star. Unfortunately, the telescope created hazy star maps. It was impossible to tell if the messages had been sent to a moon or a planet.

Was a human, an alien or a robot transmitter sending out a beacon, hoping we would find the source of the signals? Or were they trying to speak with someone far away?

There was another possibility—perhaps the signals were a warning, telling us to stay away from the mountain.

Onen came up to me and said, without preamble, “Fiman, now that you are old enough, it is my duty to tell you more about Dr. Upton’s plans. You must discover the source of the signals. His team sent you into this universe because they wanted everyone on Hopely to meet other sentient beings. Although we haven’t met anyone yet, we must not lose sight of our goal. Everyone should leave this island because we need to learn more about Ori and the adjacent planets. Every couple on Hopely must eventually have children. They should interact with other races and have children. The loss of Laiplen’s entire population must not be repeated.

“First, you must find out whether Ori is stable. Are there any active volcanoes that can destroy the planet? Is it about to enter an ice age? You must find more than one stable planet.”

The DNA of cloned humans, inhabitants of a dying planet, was placed aboard a spaceship. The craft landed on a small island, one located on a  new world. Now that these refugees are older, they must find a better place to live.

Will these refugees survive?

Next to LR2, several feet above the floor, a 3 D holographic replica of PRG, her supine figure, materialized. Much to my surprise, the replica’s skin began sagging, the results of aging. In an instant, the replica turned to dust.

PRG scowled. “I don’t want to grow old that fast.”

LR2’s tiny mouth got bigger. “This is only a simulation, a teaching tool that shows what would have happened if you used the old chambers. Because the device’s neural networks were outdated, microtubules, micron size structures within your cytoskeleton, were adapting slowly.

So we created new chambers. As a result, every one of you will live longer. Unfortunately, because you are the first humans IN5 has ever encountered, I can’t tell when you will die of old age.”

Greg tapped his fingers against his teeth. “That was an extremely detailed replica. Is it based on x-rays and Doppler imaging?”

Near the bottom of LR2’s forehead, floating point numbers moved across a screen. “No. After discovering that those modes alone don’t provide enough accurate information, IN5’s software decided to use absorption spectropy, a instrument that can detect the sound of turbulent blood, a beating heart, cell division and every sound the human body makes, all the time, not intermittently.”

Darius and his friends, occupants aboard an alien space ship, one these cloned humans landed on when they were infants, is headed for an unknown destination.

In my dream, Fiwo smiled.

“Fiman, let’s go for a walk along the shore. I’d enjoy your company, and we can look through the telescope. It will be fun!” Above her, small puffy clouds moved toward the horizon as warm afternoon light moved across my arm.

Behind me, Lawrence said, “I tried to catch that fish, but it got away.”

Close to him, Lisa began laughing. “You’re hopeless! Try again tomorrow.”

Lawrence grinned, “Okay. Okay. I’ll use better bait.”

Fiwo leaned over a fire and lifted a pan of frying potatoes, which smelled very good.

To her right, Ben smiled and spoke quietly, “Beea, you look tired. Didn’t you get enough sleep last night?”

She glanced at Ben. Then Beea giggled. In the distance, the ocean roared faintly.

Afternoon shadows moved over Adam’s head. He said, “Atta, I love you so.”

She smiled. “How sweet.”

Lawrence gently grasped Lisa’s hand and began whispering to her.

Mary ran her fingers through her hair, flirting with Mark. She said, teasing, “Don’t you ever get tired of me?”

Mark frowned. “No. That’s an odd question.”

Mary pouted, “You spend so much time studying. Talk to me.”

Through the sunny afternoon, Nara and Nick kept strolling, headed for a palm. Nara murmured, “I like it when you look at me. It makes me feel special.”

Nick smiled. “I hope so.”

On the beach, Laura was massaging Lenny’s back. She grinned. “Does that feel good?”

Lenny purred, “You know it does.”

Not far from them, Cathy and Carl were running up a steep path. Cathy shouted, joking, “I’m faster than you!”

Eve was watching a screen with Ed, studying Beyo’s outer orbit, trying to find out more about this planet.

Jane and Jim were talking about Uis, one of Ori’s moons, wondering if we would ever go there.

As always, Ora and Orson kept arguing. She wanted to remain on Hopely. He felt that it was best to search the entire planet because there might be a better place to live.

Candied yams, a fragrant meal that Nick was preparing, were cooking slowly.

Lisa was complaining, telling Lawrence that he was too lazy to clean.

Fran was listening to Frank as he talked about our optical interferometric telescope, hoping it might help him find Laiplen. Behind them, sunlit palms shifted in the wind.

Gina and Gary kept complaining, “Fiman, if we leave Hopely, we’ll die in that jungle!”

I shuddered as the dream collapsed, remembering that most of my friends were gone forever.

 

A war is raging on Noqa. Will the refugees survive?

After boarding an alien spacecraft, trying to find a safer world to live on, refugees reach the planet Noqa.

Fiman and his friends are being chased by Ro15 spacecraft. Will the Ro15 catch them? 

Several yards in, I saw tiny fish gliding down a dimly lit hall, a corridor filled with water. My screen materialized and dissipated, destroyed by the water, useless. I kicked harder and shoved kelp aside. Within moments, I veered right and went through another entrance, hoping that this poorly lit room, a place filled with waist-high piles of kelp, was X41’s bridge.

Beneath me, indigo-green vines rose and started wrapping around my leg. Not wanting the Ro15 to hear me, I grabbed my air gun—a quieter weapon that fired razor sharp v-shaped blades—and squeezed the trigger, several times. They hit the vines. Just a few came off. I lowered my left hand, the one that wasn’t holding the gun, and said, “KN.” A power-knife, a weapon with moving teeth along both edges, popped out of my left sleeve. I started cutting other vines with it. In moments, they fell off.

Kelp moved toward me and wrapped around my left wrist. I aimed, squeezed the trigger, several times, and hit some. I stuck out my hand and ripped the rest off. Soon, rockweed started crawling, headed for my ankle. I aimed down and pulled the trigger. I struck the rockweed squarely, and it came off my ankle. I bumped against waist-high kelp, but it did nothing. I passed it by.

In front of me, a mound of vines rose. Suddenly, I realized the mound was on my chair. This was the bridge. I had found it!

A crab-like creature jumped out of the mound. I blinked, surprised as the crustacean swam away. Beneath the flashlight beam, a plant like sea staghorn slithered around my waist. I stopped, trapped, then I aimed down and pulled the trigger. I hit the staghorn, but it didn’t move. I started cutting it with the knife as the kelp began coiling around my right arm. Within seconds, vines started coiling around my legs until it was impossible to move either one!

“X forty-one, it’s Fiman. Help me,” I said, speaking within my mind.

Silence. It wouldn’t respond.

Fiman and his friends are being chased by Ro15 spacecraft.

On screen 92, 122 miles per hour, X41’s current speed, decreased as it entered Faw’s thin atmosphere.

Text appeared, inches above Voih’s lid—she was waking up. But her chamber wasn’t programmed to do that until X41 reached Osae. If she did wake up, would this threaten her digitization or her regeneration afterward?

“Hellllll…” a voice in my earplugs whispered. But the voice faded quickly, and the radio interferometric telescope couldn’t tell if the signal had come from the valley.

Was a cloaked ship following us?

On screen, Voih’s face, like everyone else’s aboard, stretched out, pulled by extreme deceleration. Then our bodies began shaking, held in place by straps and the internal gravitational field.

X41 slowed down, and the results of a recent Doppler scan enlarged. According to it, Voih and everyone else were safe, no injuries of any kind.

Now X41 was just over 25,000 feet above the valley, coming down fast, headed for the dome, a structure that was two miles in diameter.

An 11 foot by 11 foot by 11-foot grid, a 3D holographic guide, equipment that X41 didn’t create, materialized.

Who sent it?

At the top of dome, an entrance slid open. Our ship went through it. Beneath us, ghostly buildings—including towers and pyramid-shaped dwellings—turned opaque. X41 had just uncloaked them. Between many buildings, I noticed empty streets, no pedestrians or spacecraft anywhere. X41 veered port, flying toward a town square.

Our ship touched down on a launch pad, blowing dust off it. No one had used this pad in a long time, maybe months or years.

Is Osae inhabited?

Fiman and his friends reach the planet Osae, then land on an island, hoping to find out who has been sending radio signals.
