Book Recommendation! Atlas 2

The second most impressive modern military science fiction novel to hit the shelves or at least the audio book shelves.

You are following from the perspective of the two main characters from the first novel who have now split. It was a wonderful surprise as was the first.

Rade or as his call sign goes “Rage” is a broken hearted member of the worlds most elite force known as the “Moths.” They make the “special forces seem like Girl Scouts,” as it says in one or two parts.

Rage is a distraught individual due to the lost of his childhood friend; both grew up together as orphans. To add on to his already battered mind, the love of his life, who Rage believes is dead, is actually alive and surviving on her own.

This story is vivid and well thought out. I recommend all who like MSF to jump in and get you in on some Moth Action in an Alas! Well at least imagine it.

Keys To the Universe: “Tier IV”

Welcome back to another feature of the Terran Myth Universe. Officially Dubbed “Keys to the Universe” (it just sounds catchy.)

The Development Tiers: Part 1 of 4.

Here I will discuss the different levels of development between factions in the Terran Myth Universe. These levels are divided into Tiers; I being the lowest developed while IV is the highest developed. Of course I will only mention those that are introduced in book 1.

I have already introduced you to the Nation of the Tireh, which is a Tier IV level of developed society. Their military power is also a very considerable threat to anyone opposing them. You can find information about the Tireh Faction with one of the following links Tireh Part I, Tireh Part II.

The break down is simply based off the level of technology and its frequency of implementation into the society as a whole (meaning even the common folks have easy access to the advance tech). This is how mankind grades them.

TIER IV Factions: What to Expect.

Highly Advance Power Capabilities
Highly Advance infrastructure (Civil and Marshal)
Highly Developed Supplies In a vast array

Details of what to expect in Factions of Tier IV:

-Sophisticated Development of power sources from commercial scale all the way down to personal scale. Normally Antimatter.

-Normal Society is linked via wireless implants, with normalized capacity for internal implanted devices that replace the use of datapads. They interact with these through a head ups display only the individual linked to it can see.

-Energy weapons are their BASIC form of weapons.

-Instantaneous Communications through sophisticated networks of communication platforms. (Usually Within their territory)

-Faster short forms of travel. (Either by FTL or by other means).

-Advance Weaponry (examples: advance battle armor, enhanced battle suits, vehicles, ships, cloaking devices).

-Genetically enhanced Soldiers. (Speaks for itself)

– Usually a Capacity to create clones at will (which normally does not happen).

Not to cause any shock. They Usually own thousands of star systems.

A Good Surprise

So as most of you know, or if you have you will now, I work a hefty load of odd hours. Unfortunately they won’t allow me to read a book but they do allow me to listen to audio books. Hence how I have coved over 120 books since January. (I lost count after 120, safe to say I’m somewhere between 140/160)

Well I started a new one yesterday. A MSF novel called “Atlas by Isaac Hooke” and I like it. The narrators voice (I forgot his name- whoops) is dark and heavy so it adds a bit of “dangerous feel” to the story as it flows. The first 2 chapters will be a bit iffy but once you hit chapter 3 it gets interesting.

As for all of you who read heavy into science fiction, specifically MSF, keep an eye out as I’ll start recommending novels by a lot of main stream authors and dozens of indie authors.

Rogue Intelligence Update

Today I have successfully finished the outline for the fun little short story called rogue intelligence. A future partner of mine wants to write it. He feels he has something to prove.

How will he do? Honestly I do not know. If he does good, then you will see it released on Amazon. If he does bad, I’ll write it and then you will still see it on Amazon (shooting for January on this one).

Now don’t lose hope. I can pump out a 40k short story in less than two weeks if circumstances call for it. All these rather small shorts you see on my blog were all written in a day. (No rude remarks about them, I know I never revised them *guilty smile*)

Stay tuned!

New short story to come “Rogue Intelligence.”

I won’t lie.

My last post about the artificial intelligence was not completely a new idea. The idea had already been in the making but I just never had anything to source information from or even get a perspective to “motivate my mind.”
I make original work that I craft on my own. I do not take people’s stories. (If I did I would make a lot of them a hell of a lot better than they are now.)
Anyways the short story will be worked on on the side as well as 2 others that have been sitting in my document folder collecting virtual dust.

It will feature a 7 man command team who will be freshly minted out of Command school Space Academy based on Vallara, a averagely developed planet in their neck of the core worlds. They feel unlucky and upset that they are assigned to an old AI and old ship, who hasn’t seen a refit in 2 decades.

They are shipped out to the rim/fringe/frontier cluster of space where the naval forces there are in need of their most adaptable and quick thinking commanders for their AI assets.

Here they will meet the aging Admiral Rence L. Coopet, who hates his dwindling command over a lawless sector of space. Even though he hates his job and all the political scandals that come with being in his line of work, he maintains a profession command structure.

His force isn’t what most would call a fleet because it is scattered across a large area of space. The number of ships under his command is around 57; ranging from a handful of capital ships to large cruisers as patrol vessels. Majority are patrol vessels. These patrol vessels are meant to operate independently to maintain order and keep the peace. Using all means at third disposal. (A usual friendly AI control assault force and special ops force. – Yeah I like the sound of that!)

Our team rendezvous with the older departing crew and are insured that their job will be more exciting than anything back in the core sectors.
Their first mission? To find out the cause of a vast network of Corruption that is leading to mass murders, unsettling crimes against innocents and setting a frontier planet on the verge of anarchy. Can they solve it in time!!!? I don’t know, I’m not writing it but someone I know will be doing a ghost write for me. If it’s good I’ll publish it, which he will be given due credit. If it is writing like the plot I created or better than I’ll send him back to the drawing board or I’ll just write. Sooo what’s next?

Stay tuned! And you’ll see.

Sci Fi thoughts

So, I have been doing a lot of basic intros into our galaxy. Not just the aspects of how science fiction is incorporated but how you can make believable fiction from facts. Soon, and I mean very soon, you will take part of a combined universe (if you care too). I began with taking the realities of politics, governments, and the drastic seperation of advancement of civilizations and how they control power.

The Everyday Soldier (OF)

Part of their longest aspect of training is discipline; through tolerance, ignorance or any other conflicting factors that would agitate the everyday soldier.
The more elite sections of the military cannot stand the idea of being detached/attached with lazier groups of soldiers for lacking appropriate amounts of discipline.
The Old Force Operators are trained to integrate with whom they’ll be tactfully inserted into; therefor their superior levels of training and sophisticated technologies allow them too remain immune about the deficiencies of the everyday soldier. Through months of training they are taught the ways for the position in which they will migrate into. Many would consider it a more in-depth acting class, but the OFO must go through the phases of training that mirror the everyday soldier. To capture a vague feel of what the everyday soldier went through.

You only know the Old Force exist, when they want you too.

Old Force Operators

Members of Old Force (OF) are highly trained operatives that function in the everyday routine of “the normal soldier.” Once a Operator is selected into the Old Force they undergo a vigorous and life threatening genetic enhancement. Some do not survive. They are interfused with a liquid nanotechology that coats their skeletal system intensifying the characteristics of the human body. They become faster, smarter, and undoubtedly stronger.
Years of training allow them to grasp these new capabilities that make them the nearest mankind can come to a superman.
Each of the operators are trained to operate as lone entities to enact the ruthless effectiveness of a entire combat force. However they are trained to operate as units if (only in extremes cases, which is never) it is ever require.
Biologically integrated with Internal Heads Up Display (iHUDs) that allows them to wirelessly connect, hack, and over ride all known systems in use.
Operators are efficient, ruthless, and care only for the orders of the Old Force Commanders (OFC), men/women who are held to a legendary standard.
However each operator seeks to preserve the stability of the MWF. They believe in this without a doubt and understand that preserving the MWF means there is often no difference in friend nor foe and there is sometimes no limit to the collateral that is required.

What’s to Come!

Cheveyo is part of a highly developed covert organization that operates through the ruse of false Identities. These operators are imbedded within units across the controlled sectors of MilkyWay Forces (MWF), the governing faction that was created after the Soul System Conflict.
The Old Force, as they call themselves, operates disguised in the shadows to preserve and protect the MWF from enemies; exteriorly and interiorly. They are form from the ashes of the Sol system conflict; existing now and forever to prevent any further destabilizing attempts which was experience in the Sol system. With no government to answer too and only one goal, everyone is safe but at the same time, no one is.

The Old Force Creed

The Old Force Commander stood before the soon to be new freshly minted operators of the Old Force. He starred down at the small group eyeing them firmly. “Repeat after me,” The OFC said unemotionally. The new operators showed no emotion in return. As he said the following, and a cold echo repeated his words.

“From the shadows we operate, for the galaxy we protect.
We stand amongst you, with a faceless silhouette.
The things we are, are for things best left unknown.
We are the guardians of the night and the protectors of all homes.”

After a brief moment of silence and motionless statues of the new operators, the OFC’s deep voice broke through the still air. “Carry out the tasks assigned to you. Dismissed.”
The unceremonial event came to a conclusion and the still emotionless Old Force Operators dispersed from the room.
