Overview

What did our ancestors dream of when they gazed up at the stars and looked beyond the present?

A Journey in Other Worlds races far ahead of the nineteenth century to imagine what life would be like in the year 2000. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, Earth is effectively a corporate technocracy, with big businesses using incredible advances in science to improve life on the planet as a whole. Seeking other planets habitable for the growing human population, the spaceship Callisto, powered by an antigravitational force known as apergy, embarks on a momentous tour of the solar system. Jupiter proves to be a wilderness paradise, full of threatening beasts and landscapes of inspired beauty, where the explorers must fight for their lives. Dangers less tangible but equally deadly await the Callisto crew on Saturn, which yields profound secrets about their fate and the ultimate destiny of mankind.

    The First,And Last Time

    Saturn walked into the room,and to her horror she found dead bodys of little girls...they looked like...her...only different ages. Saturns took a stepped back from the carcassiz,and bolted for the exit but the exit sealed shut,leaving her in the dakr room with the dead children...one looked as if it were five,another seven,another nine,another eight,another ten,and one that was older than Saturn,about fifteen. The room was charred and sad looking...a screen sat above a large computer,which was cracked,and the computer was charred and broken...Saturn manuvered her way past the dead bodys,trying to get to the computer...she sat in the torn chair in front of the computer and ran her hand down the computr keys...."this tech is pracitcly ancient..." she murmured to herself...the computer screen suddenly lit up,frightening Saturn for a second. A woman appeared on screen. She had brown hair,a yellow and silver coat(not winter coat,a fasion coat.),and her eyes were closed and a smirk covered her face,her hands were in the shape of a triangle...the strange woman lifted her head and opened her eyes. They were brown. "Hello Serena,my dear." Said the woman,looking straight at Saturn. "I knew someday you'd find my old lab...there is something i wish to say,serena. These r all u,at different ages. They all didnt turn out right,they didnt quite pass the test...they were all not perfection,in my eyes," Said the woman. "Until i invented u...the perfect girl. Then i had no need for these,obselete robots. So i shut them down and destroyed this lab...the very brith plce of u." She said woman,looking straight into Saturn's eyes,the woman's gaze was piercing. "I want u to see it,for the very first and last time,my dear. Before i must destroy it,and its contents...look around...i give fifty seconds..." said the woman taking out a stop watch...Saturn lookd around. There was a table,it looked like a bed of some sort. Next to it were mechanical tools. The bed was charred. "TIMES UP!" Declared the woman on screen. Then the screen went black. "Se destruct in twelve minutes." Said the computer blankly. The door opened,and Saturn looked at the young and old girls with pity. She picked one up,and hauled it outside...then another,another,until all the dead bodys were outside of the lab. Saturn sighed in dismay,and closed her eyes. Then walkd into room,then something sqeaked. She stepped on a squeeking child toy..."9,8,7,6," said the computer blankly. Saturn cleared the room of its valuble contents(child toys. xD), and ran outside,and shut the door...then,a loud boom echoed inside the room,and the door fell off,revealing a charred,empty room. Saturn looked at were the screen was,and were the dy on the screen was. "Who..r u?" She said aloud,then looked down at the dead bodys. "I'm sure crimson can bring u a back,youll see." She said to them,as if they could hear her..
