Valiant: Thunder and Lightning…The Day Varence Came to Earth… Origins…

*SONG* “Will You Be There (In the Morning)” by Heart
(Please listen to the song first.)

The tranquility of their shielded world somehow
Felt like an abyss sometimes…
Perhaps it was that Technicolor scientific
Wonder of the blackhole that held Tellus in suspension,
Who knows…All that Apollo knew was that this
Was his first eager assignment…Yes, a professional
Position, but still it offered the best reward ever…
A ticket out of that surreal paradise world where
Everyone was too happy all the time…
He didn’t even care that the job put him in one
Of the most dangerous areas of space, some
Small blue planet at the edges of neutral territory
Along a very heavily travelled trade route…
He studied one of his data cards he scanned
For the name of the planet that would become his new
Post…his new ‘home’…Then there it was, Earth.
Where did that name come from exactly?
He would discover soon enough…

Before long the transport was docking at the ship…
The Lion Men guards moved to assist with
His bags, but Apollo was too proud to
Allow for that…He hadn’t packed much to bring with
Him anyway, he
Was sure to acquire more interesting things at his
New post regardless.
Apollo stood, grabbed all two of his simple small
Bags then immediately marched through the doors
Onto the ship…He set the bags down
Just inside the door…And as the Lion Men guard
Began to follow him, he stopped, turned and held
Out his hand and told them, “There’s no need for
You to follow me further. You’ve brought me to my destination,
Now you may go. Thank you.”
It was true what he said, so they pleasantly
Followed his orders and left. Then Apollo was left
Free to study and learn his new surroundings…
He already knew his two other team members
Were already here…The ship had been posted there
Following the last cataclysm…an over abundance
Of new life had exploded on the planet of all
Shapes, sizes and nature…It had happened
Too quickly, suspiciously…And the volume of
Life coupled with the abundance of resources in its
Present territory and influence of the Dark Empire
Could only mean one thing…The planet was
Being prepared for farming…Thus the council
Voted that a Watcher’s ship immediately be posted
To study any and every detail of goings on with
This new planet…

Apollo was too eager to waste time inspecting
The ship, instead he went straight for the
Bridge to begin his work; at that point he was
Well programmed for protocol.
On the bridge he met his two very predictable looking
Teammates…Both were blonde in the same
Blue uniforms and no doubt the same bloodline as
Many of the Danu on Tellus…But their attitudes
Were surprising.

“Why hello,” the first officer, to the right, with curly
Dark blond shoulder length hair and this strangely
Cocky handsome, sharp face. “You must be
Our final third, our new wise leader! Our
New superior officer! The great and legendary Apollo!
Why it is so nice to meet you, sir. May I
Be permitted to introduce my humble self…
I am but the meager 2nd seat, Observer of
Lesser beasts and things…I am Zinn.”

Apollo’s eyes went wide at the introduction. He
Had not expected that attitude at all. Obviously
This young man was posted here for his
Proverbial personality and not his skills.
“Greetings Zinn.”

And then Zinn jumped to his feet and
Stood center of the room and gestured to
The left, to the quiet young blond man
Seated at the end very humbly… “And
This is our resident naturalist, Camlo.
He is very wise but short on words, so
I would advise you to speak carefully
To him so as not to waste his time. He
Does not like to be disturbed.”

Camlo grimaced at the wordy introduction;
Zinn never ceased to get on his nerves. “Hello,
Apollo.”

“It’s good to meet you, Camlo.” Apollo said…
First impressions made, this was going to
Be a very interesting trio…The assignment
Would certainly never be quiet. But it was
Nothing Apollo couldn’t handle.

“May I show you to your seat, sir?” Zinn
Asked, eager to fill the air with noise.

Apollo entered the room and took the higher
Held, captain’s seat…which was reserved for the
Chief task. “I believe I know where I sit,
Thank you.”

“Why of course you do, sir.” Zinn answered.
“Your job is the most important after all, we
Would be so lost without you. No one else
Could do what you do…That’s why we are
But your humble assistants.”

Apollo curled his lip…Now he knew he had
A reputation…That his training had imbedded
Within him patience that he never knew he had…
That by far most on Tellus were to say the
Least…tame…quiet…boring…but this Zinn,
How he had never heard of him? Was he raised
In the Paladium with the animals and he
Never knew? “Zinn, are you always this
Way?”

“Whatever do you mean, sir?” Zinn asked. “Have
I said something inappropriate?”

Apollo made himself comfortable in his chair
Without meeting eyes with him. “This performance
Of yours? Is this your natural behavior
Or do you merely strut and make a fool of
Yourself on purpose to play mind games on
Everyone you meet?”

Camlo laughed quietly to himself.

Zinn smiled. “I’ve heard about you, the wild
Boy of school.” He crossed his arms. “I merely
Wanted to greet the legend as he should
Be greeted.”

“You think I am some wit-less fool?” Apollo
Asked. “Let me save you a lot of time…
You’ve already spoken volumes of who you are
Just now…To do that so fast…gives me, a
Whole lot of time and power when you should have
Kept it calm and polite. Actions speak as
Loud as words…Do you honestly think you will
Surprise me from now on, ever?”

Zinn just smiled, nodded and bowed. “We are
To be together here a long time…Everything
Becomes a game after a while…it helps to keep
The mind…alive.”

“Ah.” Apollo said, finally looking at him. “So
You like showing off. I see now why you are
Posted here.”

“Grant me a score,” Zinn laughed, “It won’t
Be boring.”

Apollo laughed. “True, I will grant you that…
With you here, Zinn…I am sure it will be
Entertaining…Now if you will allow me to review
The state of this planet…”

Zinn went to his side to watch Apollo’s reactions.
“Ah, to see what your thoughts are…Forgive
Me, I cannot resist.”

Apollo started reviewing the data on the
Armrest…The continents… “I don’t understand?
I thought this planet was undergoing some form
Of reconstruction? New life?”

“More or less.” Zinn said. “Life is evolving fast.
Plant and animal life…is insane.”

“What are these…things?” Apollo asked,
Reviewing the same data over and over. “The life forms,
The key components of these ecosystems…They are
All reptilian?”

“Monstrous, aren’t they?” Zinn laughed. “The
Size and variety…The behavior patterns…The
Violence is at an epic scale…Nothing is
Small here…”

“Yes I see, but…” Apollo scowled. “What are
These things? These bipedal life forms? We’re only
Supposed to study planets with advanced civilizations
Or rapidly developing civilizations…There are
No life forms capable of that here? Only these
Strange…bipedal creatures?”

“Yes I know.” Zinn smiled.

“But they should be of some reptoid species…”
Apollo scowled. “These bipeds…These aren’t
Natural…The DNA sequences are too strange…
They were made? A Sirian-reptilian hybrid?
What, to create some new form of biped…
Simian? Primate? That’s what the computer
Calls it…There’s no functional evolving advanced
Brain here…it’s all too corrupt…Why would
They post Watchers here for such a crudely
Created experiment?”

Zinn only smiled. “Someone obviously knows
Something that we do not.”

Apollo kept studying the readings. Everything
His eyes told him was ridiculous. “Look
At this! Ages of empty years with this monstrous
Animal life…Then all of a sudden a new
Genetic element is introduced and bipeds suddenly
Pop out of nowhere? Why push the limits of
Size this way? It makes no sense!”

“Not unless you study the effects of such
Gigantic life forms on the planet itself long term.”
Zinn suggested.

“What?” Apollo asked.
But before he could receive an answer there
Was an alarm…All three of them immediately
Found themselves studying the
Same signal at their stations.

“It’s a ship.” Zinn said first.

“It’s positioning itself over one of the lusher
Continents…” Camlo then said. “It’s scanning for
Resources…Very efficiently too, I might add.”

“Can you see what they are looking for
Already?” Zinn asked.

“By the approach of the vessel, the continent
They chose…” Camlo said… “I would say
They’re looking for gold…specialized minerals
And gems…They’re looking for advanced fuel
Sources…That is no common ship…”

Apollo too was studying the vessel, but his
Eye for details far outmatched theirs…
His mind sought details the other two
Never looked for… “They’re humans…ALL
Men…That’s a slave ship…”

Zinn and Camlo quietly turned to listen
To Apollo’s analysis…

“They are descendants of the First Home…
Very pure blood…SAVA…I would say they
Were probably taken from the original Homeworld…
Blonds…Prime form…They are marked…
This is a life time vessel…Like we were
Taught about…Meant to be self sustaining…
For deep space operations…A mining ship…
They search and seek out the highest quality
Fuels…no doubt to periodically return to
Some base star…for the Empire…”

“All men?” Zinn asked. “A life vessel?
That means…”

“Yes Zinn,” Apollo said calmly, “It means
They are asexual or homosexually programmed…
No females…All new slaves born on this ship
Are most likely raised artificially…preselected,
Specially bred males…”

“Why are such slave ships male?” Camlo asked.

“Some are female.” Apollo answered. “The Empire
Does this to rest control…Single gender slave
Ships are more easily programmed…They are
Probably secretly being experimented on as well
Without them knowing it. Every detail of their life
Is monitored and recorded without them knowing it.
They can be raised any way imaginable
On a single gender slave ship…Tame, timid,
Brute strength…all behaviors can be studied…”
Apollo froze as his eyes fell on readings he
Could not believe…

“What is it?” Zinn asked.

Apollo hesitated to answer… “There are Lion
Men on that slave ship…”

“But I thought they were extinct outside
Of Tellus?” Camlo asked.

Apollo’s eyes were wide. “We may be looking
At one of the last slave ships…with Lion
Men…And the name of the ship…It’s an
Adam Ship.”

“Adam Ship?” Camlo asked.

“An all purpose mining ship.” Zinn informed
Him. “A slave ship specially tasked to mine
All precious fuel resources…My that is quite
An interesting arrival to match yours.” He
Said nodding to Apollo.

“There are no coincidences.” Apollo said with a
Low voice as he studied the readings. “Display the
Ship on the view screen.” At once the screen
Displayed the odd shaped, the elongated octagonal
Ship hovering over the planet. Apollo’s eyes greedily
Took in the details. “I have got to get over there
And see this for myself. I’ve heard of these ships
But never seen one.”

“You have only just arrived yourself?” Zinn
Laughed. “You wish to go over there, what for?
Delight in their particular entertainment?”

“Don’t be ridiculous.” Apollo snapped. “It’s the
Nature of the slave ship…And Lion Man? How
Do they still have them, and why?”

“Shouldn’t we report this to the Postulate?”
Camlo asked. “The Lion Men will want to know…”

Zinn laughed. “With their protocols? They won’t do
Anything. With Dorin in command, he will
Never let the Lion Men on Tellus know for he
Knows they would intervene immediately. There
Will be chaos! Anarchy!” Zinn paused with
Wicked delight. “Oh how I wish I could
Contact BR’Riel at the Paladium… There
Would be revolution! They will insist on an
Intervention at once!”

“In other words…We sit, watch and do nothing.”
Camlo replied quietly.

Zinn smiled sarcastically. “Exactly. That’s what
We do.”

“Well I’m taking one of the Astral Crystals,” Apollo
Said, “So I won’t be seen but I will be able to
Observe more closely.”

“You are seriously going over there?” Zinn laughed.

“I’m leaving now.” Apollo said, pointing his
Finger as he grabbed the Astral Crystal with his
Other hand… “Say nothing!”

The Adam Ship…
Born in deep space…at one of the Empire’s
Great star stations at the far side of the universe…
Was in fact a ship of men…Programmed slaves.
Descendants, survivors of the conquered Sava…
A handsome blond race of the Danu…
Most renown for their good looks and
Generous IQs…They were excellent multitaskers,
Good at many things…generally kind in nature,
But could be temperamental…They were not
Known for psychic abilities, however some children
Were born with such abilities; though rare…

The Empire designed the Adam Ship to mine
For precious fuel sources…especially gold and
Diamonds…The ships were filled with the genetically
Bred slaves…slaves born artificially…using prime
Female host eggs…fertilized by finely
Selected males…to create healthy, fit, versatile
Slaves…
A human female was kept in suspended animation…
For egg harvesting…with ideal males kept the same
Way for semen fertilization…All slaves were born
In artificial chambers with accelerated growth
Rates…where they emerged at approximately
15 years old…for labor…

This Adam Ship was equipped with 10,000
Fully matured male slaves…of prime form,
Each pre-programmed with skills for appointed
Jobs…communications, technicians, mining skills,
Data acquisition and construction. Obedience
Was engrained at birth. Rebellious nature was
Strictly repressed…however nature always rebelled
Allowances…
And lastly…this Adam Ship, was the last
To retain Lion Men slaves…approximately 500…
They escaped the culling since the ship had been in
Deep space for so long…
It was on its last generation of artificially born life
Slaves…And somehow had escaped the Empire’s attention
Of any importance…
And Apollo was about to find out why…

Apollo materialized invisibly on the ship…and at once
Studied everything he saw…
There were men of good form everywhere…in tattered
Worn, re-used uniforms…
All were very well built, some more than others…
All were blond…
Their facial structures were similar, all could have
Been from some shared family bloodline; or a very
Limited parent host was used to make them.
Some had straight hair, others curly…
Some had blue eyes, others green or gold…
There were a number of older gray-blond haired
Men who seemed in charge of stations, more
Bossy…arrogant, louder and more dominant over
Others…
The youngest seemed to endure the most abuse,
Pushed around…dominated…They carried themselves
More weakly…
But the general population ranged in ages from
30-40ish looking…and displayed all types of
Personalities…from aggressive bullies to friendly
And gregarious…

Apollo sought the best way to understand the
Ship was by seeing the bridge…There he found
The Commander…A gray haired, well built and well aged
Man, who literally called himself by the ship’s name…
Commander Adamman. He was strong, cocky,
And scowled constantly. Barked orders. And
Wanted everything immediately.

He had 2 supporting officers…
Hollis, a well natured, good looking younger
Officer…who the Commander favored…
And Cain, who was bold, loud and a bully…
This was his 2nd officer…

Apollo positioned himself silently amongst them and
Watched…

“Have you found me the statistics of the planet yet?”
The Commander barked.

“The science teams report vast gold and diamond
Deposits below…ripe for humanity.” Hollis told
Him.

“Excellent.” The Commander smiled, folding his hands.

“Do we begin to drop ship crews?” Cain asked. “Or
Do we wait for further analysis of the environment?
They report hostile life forms.”

“How hostile?” The Commander questioned.

“We cannot get clear readings on dangers on the
Surface.” Hollis told him. “Although the climate
Is breathable…”

“I do want to know more about the life forms,” the
Commander said, “I want to know what we will be
Dealing with…How fast can you get the information?”

“I can inquire with Jansen?” Hollis asked.

“Another excuse to play with your partner?” Cain
Snapped; some jealousy there.

The Commander laughed. “Yes, of course. Go ask him.”
He smiled. “You are very lucky to have such a
Relationship…Go on, go ask him…”

At that Hollis left…a little too happily…some
Secret smile on his face…

Apollo noted, Hollis acted different than the others…
He was content…seriously content…like he held some secret.
He followed Hollis as he left the bridge for
The lower decks…

Apollo noted all sorts of things!
There were disgruntled, busy workers…
Men laughing and joking around…
Rooms where sex games went on so commonly it
Was done without a shock…or reprimand?
Some seemed to play around during work, while
Others were bullied into sexual acts…And yet
There were places where everything was
Serious business and messing around was tolerated.
Apollo saw no sense to any of it! How was
This ship functional?
He could not understand how these men managed
Work and sexual antics together and managed
To get anything done? It was like some strange
Zoo.

Slowly Apollo understood…There was
Some kind of class system…The workers, who
Were professional…And the ones who hated their
Jobs, thus played around and bullied…
It was a very unsettling atmosphere…

Then it struck Apollo…it was the aspect
Of the single sex environment…
Rivalry…bullying…wit, wisdom, strength…
Friendships shaped things…
Special bonds were rare…

Finally Hollis arrived at the science deck…
Where he found his busy partner, Jansen…
In the arboretum…A very quiet, professional place…
All the men there were calm, behaved…pleasant…

But Hollis just stood there…quietly watching
Jansen, smiling…Jansen was very handsome…
Carried himself strong, but kind…he was different
Than the others…He would smile and everyone would
Smile…There was something different about him…
And it was very clear Hollis noticed it, admired it,
Respected it, valued it…and quietly and deeply
Loved it.

Apollo sensed it with fascination…Hollis was sincerely
In love with this man! In fact he felt it so strongly
That he never said it out loud, he was too afraid to.
He was too afraid that the animalistic pride of his
Peers would see it and descend upon it, and destroy
It.

Suddenly Jansen noticed Hollis standing there
With that secret smile on his face. “What are you
Doing here?”

“I told the Commander I could find out more
About the surface of the planet if I came here.”
Hollis answered…still smiling…

“I’m not working in that department today.” Jansen
Laughed… “Markan and Jasaph move us around…
Today I’m in the arboretum…lots of plants.” He
Laughed…but watched his partner. “What’s with you?
This smiling of yours…you’re always smiling lately.”

“I’m just happy.” Hollis only said.

“You’ve been this way ever since we started sharing
Quarters…” Jansen laughed… “Lots of the crew
Share quarters.”

“I know.” Hollis said.

“But what is it?” Jansen asked.

“I’m just happy.” Hollis said, slowly moving toward
Him. “And I just like being happy. I’ve never
Felt this way before…I don’t know what this
Feeling is but I like it.”

Jansen laughed as he plugged seedlings into flats for
Shelves beneath the artificial grow lights… “Shifts
Are nearly done for the day…Did you want to do
Something?”

“No.” Hollis just kept smiling.

Jansen laughed. “How are you going to get the information
For the Commander then?”

Hollis’s eyes looked down timidly. “I know.” He
Noticed others were watching…They were all friends
Of theirs, and they were all smiling…They all seemed
To know…what Hollis was afraid to say.

“Go find him his answers before you get in trouble.”
Jansen laughed… “I’ll see you at our quarters…
I will…I’ll be there.”

“Ok.” Hollis said as he turned to leave…then
Stopped…then turned back… “Jansen?”

“Yes?”

“I like you making me happy.” Hollis told him,
Then left…

Jansen laughed, shook his head and turned to
His co-workers and friends. “What’s gotten
Into him?”

The tall curly haired, broad built Jonath smiled
And laughed, lifted a tray of seedlings to a shelf
And said… “Oh I can’t imagine…”

But Apollo knew…even he had to admit, it
Made him smile too. There was something endearing
About this unique behavior…he hadn’t seen anything
Like it on the ship…in fact all the men seemed semi-
Distracted by a testosterone fog amidst their work…
Deeper emotions were rare…

Jansen turned to his friend Jonath for answers…
“I don’t understand, did I do something wrong?”

Jonath only laughed…he was a big soft-hearted man
Yet looked fierce… “You really have no idea?”

“No…”

Janeth, another friend and co-worker…wavy blond hair,
Well built, as they all were…came up to them laughing
And put his arm on Jansen’s shoulder. “Jansen…
My friend…you’re so pretty.” He laughed.

“Pretty?” Jansen scoffed.

“It’s that sweet handsome face of yours…” Jonath
Teased.

“What are you talking about?” Jansen demanded.

“Jansen…” Jonath said seriously… “Hollis…1st
Officer…one of the best known playboys of the ship…
The former bad boy…rebel…Haven’t you seen, haven’t
You noticed how he’s changed?”

“Huh? Changed how?” Jansen asked.

“He’s so well mannered…The man is even polite
To crew now!” Janeth laughed, as he shook his head.
“The effect you have on him…”

“What?”

Jonath looked at his friend kindly in the face…
“Jansen…Hollis…is in love…He loves you.
Don’t you see it? Everyone else does.”

“And some are mighty jealous.” Janeth added.

“Loves me?” Jansen wondered… “But…how?
I don’t understand…we’re just…together…lots
Of the crew pair off…”

“I think you make a sweet couple, a handsome
Couple,” Jonath smiled, “Far, far better than
Many others…It’s just something you have together…
Furthermore…I admire it, respect it…envy it…
And I think…No, I know…you feel it too…
Because you’re not rude like so many others…You
Have a warm nature…Who wouldn’t love that?”

“Really?”

“Jansen…it’s a rare thing in this place.” Janeth
Agreed to it. “Treasure it. But my God, see it…
Go with it…This life we have will eat you alive…
Something like this…is the reason to live…so
Live my friend…live.”

Apollo watched as the men finished their duties
And their shifts ended for the day. He decided
He would follow this Jansen and Hollis for his
Notes…They were the only two he had seen of
Interest so far…First the Adam Ship…
No coincidence upon his arrival…and now
These two men…Hollis and Jansen…There
Was something significant about their roles here
He could feel it…Something was building…
And they were key players…

He followed Jansen through the halls, studied
Him…He did have a nice face, chiseled strong
Yet there was this glow of kindness, a gentleness
In his eyes…He was unique, even among
Those Apollo knew…Not weak or frail, kindly
Strong…and a smile that even made him smile…
Now as a man Apollo knew men…The silence,
The brooding, the wit and need to show off their
Intelligence, attributes…This Jansen was not like
That…He was an interesting subject to study for
Sure…In fact he didn’t seem to belong there,
On a slave ship at all…He would have fit
Better back on Tellus…

Jansen went to his quarters, as most did after
Their shifts…
Apollo noted the wild carnal activities that
Seemed common to the men on this ship…odd…
But Jansen went quietly into his quarters…
Where he undressed his uniform down to simple
Undershorts…then sat at a table grooming
Some potted plant…

Apollo hovered invisibly…studying, waiting…He
Still wondered on the whereabouts of the Lion Men
On the ship…Where were they? What purpose did
They serve? He tried sensing Jansen’s mind…
He saw images of the Lion Men…Gold and gray…
Yes, the man knew of them…The Lion Men
Were kept in caged dens on the lower decks…
They were brute workers…used on mining missions
For heavy labor…They also entertained the
Crew with bloodsport battle games…
Gladiator-like games held once a week
Where Lion Men were pitted against each
Other in fights…It was awful, bloody…

The Lion Men were also used as a form of
Capital punishment on the ship. Disobedient crew
Who broke laws were given to the Lion Men…
To play with…As a form of wild justice…if
The Lion Men saw the offender as bad…it
Could mean death…Or, it could mean nothing…
Some were spared, some were abused…and some
Were simply torn apart. The Lion Men were law…
The crew feared them…Jansen was scared
Of them…but also, he greatly admired them
And felt sorry for them…Yes, Jansen was a
Unique man on the Adam Ship for sure…

Then the door opened, and there was Hollis…
A quiet moment as entered the room
Then bolted the door…Hollis watched his partner
Sitting there at the table with the plant, in his
Shorts…He could only smile…

Jansen looked up…innocently, shook his head,
“You’re still smiling. What is it with your
Smiling all the time?”

Hollis removed his tattered over-worn officer’s
Jacket…hung it on the rack…went to the
Nourishment dispenser and requested a cold
Drink…He was choked for words. “So I’m
Smiling a lot…is that wrong?”

“You said I make you happy?”

Hollis took a drink and froze… “What?”
There was a long drawn out reply…

“What are you afraid to say?” Jansen asked
Curiously.

“Afraid?” Hollis looked everywhere about the room.

“You are.” Jansen said. “You are afraid to
Say something! Normally you talk and talk
About yourself.”

“I do?” Hollis had never realized before.
Suddenly he was becoming aware of many things…
Especially of how reckless he had been in the past…
And how absolutely lonely and miserable he had
Felt his whole life…

“Just tell me.” Jansen asked.

Hollis turned to him…saw his face and suddenly
Felt absolutely powerless…weak…and terrified
Jansen would not say what he hoped he would.
“I…”

“Yes?”

“I want to keep feeling this way. I don’t
Want it to stop. I’ve never had it before. I’m,”
Hollis choked, “scared to lose it.”

Jansen squinted, shook his head. “Lose what?”

“You…” Hollis finally mumbled…His
Face to stone…his eyes like oceans that
Might suddenly open…

“Me?’ Jansen asked… “I make you
Feel THAT strongly?”

“Yes.” Hollis gave in, bowing his head…
Trapped, wanting to hide…afraid of what
Words might come…or not…He grabbed his
Face to hide his tears.

Then Jansen stood…went to Hollis…grabbed
Both his shoulders. “Look at me.” He waited
For Hollis to look. “I’m not going anywhere.
I’m with you. For as long as you want…I’m
With you…Always.”

“So if I say,” Hollis said with a shaky voice,
“So if I tell you that I love you…”

“Then I say,” Jansen said with a kinder,
Sincerely firm voice, “I love you too.” They laughed
And smiled. “There now why was that so hard?”

“There is nothing harder to say.” Hollis
Said as he hugged him tight. “Now I
Need to figure out a way to make this
Permanent.”

“You really want to make it permanent?”
Jansen asked.

“Yes, yes I really do.” Hollis confessed. “I really,
Really do.”

ALARMS sounded…A red light flashed
In the room…

“What is it?” Jansen asked as he watched
Hollis shake himself to wider senses.

“Something’s wrong.” Hollis said…They could
Hear the echoes of voices of the crew in panic…
In the halls…men were racing.

“All senior officers report to the bridge
Immediately.” The Commander’s voice ordered
Over the com system…

“Get dressed,” Hollis said, “Come with
Me…I have to get to the bridge.”

Apollo watched the two men uniform themselves
Then quietly depart for the main bridge…
There was chaos across the ship…men
Running…shouting…broken phrases…
Rumors were flying?
Apollo could not make out what the
Excitement was about…he had to know!

On the bridge, the chaos was worse.
Hollis and Jansen entered to greet the
Commander and 2nd officer Cain…Both
Held stern, confused faces…

“You brought your partner?” Cain snapped.
“How NICE.”

Hollis was fierce. “Issues Cain? Or is it lack of?”

The Commander slammed his fist down on
The strategy table in the center of the room.
“We have a situation.”

Hollis could only wonder, “That is?”

The Commander pointed to the view screen
Hovering over the center of the room…ALL
Eyes were locked upon it…
There were whispers…inaudible speculations…
Hollis and Jansen looked to the screen…

“What is that?” Hollis asked…

“A ship.” Cain hissed sarcastically…

“What kind of ship?” Hollis asked… “We’re
The only ones in this quadrant…”

“THAT…” The commander said… “Is an
EVE Ship!”
Silence followed…

Apollo stared at the screen…his mouth
Fell open…Now he knew…Everything was
Becoming clear now…An EVE Ship! Now
He knew why his arrival was timed so
Well on Earth…An empty world…Giant
Monsters? Ape men? HA!
First the Adam Ship…A ship of slaves…
Blond, handsome men of the Sava…
With the last labor lot of Lion Men as well!
And now this…An Eve Ship…
A ship of exotic beautiful women…another slave ship…
Two ships meeting by chance in deep space?
Both bred as single sex societies…never
Knowing what the other sex was like?
The Adams had never seen women before…
The Eves had never seen men before…
Yes, something was about to happen…
Something BIG…
He saw it coming…felt it…That planet
Was the magnet of an epic about to unfold…
Apollo grabbed his crystal and returned
To his own ship at once…

Zinn immediately greeted him… “Did
You see what just arrived?”

“Yes.” Apollo only answered.

“Well?” Zinn eagerly asked…

“Get ready,” Apollo said, “A show
Is about to begin…”

“Finally something interesting.” Zinn said.

“Interesting?” Apollo wondered. “The
Details to come…scare me.”

  1. That was DEEP! Thanks again Bill and Lida, Heres a new video I just put out. Used a song Bill used some weeks ago. Good inspiration!!

    • That’s funny dreamwalker!! But rest assured….Bill has not painted himself into any ‘corners’. He knows exactly where this is going, cause it’s been in his head for months. It was picking the right time to put it out there….
      Like Varence…it is all about the timing.
      I thought it was a fantastic tale. Thought provoking, timely, well stated! And logical.
      (yup, I love my Spock-isms!)
      The best is yet to come….
      Stay safe everyone, we are in for one BIG ride/show!
      Lida

  2. Thank you Bill, Lida, Dreamwalker and to all the others for the good topics that alert interests and help with this journey. Hugs and love for all of you!! I’ve got to say that the past two months or so have been intense and interesting to say the least as why of my silence. I felt the need to withdraw and introspect and find my own truths.. I have recently been severly attacked again, I was working a night shift at the hospital looking after confused male patients one of them attacked me physically and assaulted me.. he tried to strangle me wich i managed to fight off and kicked me on my back, i have now to be off work and on pain killers as my spine is constantly spasming.. but apart from that all is good and i feel as if i learnt a lesson and finally got the balls to go and try to find a diffrent job as i wont be able to work in nursing again with my back injury.
    But enough of me hope you all doing better and keeping safer than me lol.

    • A big hug to you, Terraseed. That was some intensely bad thing you went thru. I certainly understand your need to withdraw, but please let us know you’re better.
      A couple of words here and there.
      More hugs, courageous Lady !

    • Dear Terraseed, yes, we have been thinking of you. Thank you so much for your sharing, particularly in your such difficult circumstances. Though I cannot do anything substantial, but would like to let you know YOU ARE NOT ALONE, and how much your being here is treasured !!! WE ARE HERE TO BE YOUR SUPPORT, COMPANION WITH OUR HEARTS !!!

      That kind of malevolent interference, even attacks, affecting whatever about ourselves, or our entourage, material stuffs, our way of reading and interpreting the messages, any kinds of materials, our senses, aiming on leading us towards misunderstanding, separation just have never ceased. It has occurred among the spiritual ones, without saying the general ones. Ill people generally get more vulnerable, even temperamental. How much I understand what the angels dedicating in hospitals can confront with. But what happened to you is really tooooooo much !!! When we are still in this matrix, it’s just so hard to keep ourselves out of it in which some many things are so programmed, aiming for purpose of manipulation.

      I guess we all are confronting with the very difficulty right now. I personally have in fact been beaten down so many times, and then could finally met you, the precious ones here, who not only gave me a hand, supporting me to stand up again, but keep charging me the very energy, hope, knowledge, enlarging my perspectives, getting the missing parts of memory, even show me the way with your torches.

      Anyone of us could have difficult time, that’s why this tribe is so precious to me, for there are just still the ones who are sane, even strong, wit and wise, realizing the very situation and would like to give hand, light, remedy, any kind of nutrition/elixir in time.

      Here, worth pointing again in regards to the “vintage points.” Again, I cannot but praise Dave enough for his taking this great example of the film “The Beautiful Mind,” based on the true story. This also reminds me of what just not only highly comforted, but also inspired me in a very crucial way, the speech of the once labeled as autistic child, great Lady Temple Grandin to me.

      For the ones who posses that vintage points, aka more pieces of puzzles could make her or his sense that we may be unable to catch, I guess it’s the very situation when we read texts, watch films, listen to the music, not only merely when reading Bill and Lida’s posts and pictures. That’s why it’s so precious to have you, the precious, resonated ones here, for we are working together on gathering more the pieces of puzzles to see a bigger and bigger picture.

      Me, pity that I’m still not that strong, neither wise one, even still weak, but would like to share this here for encouraging all the resonating and resonated ones in this tribe.

      Again, want to thank all the super precious TORCHES here !!!

    • Well good heavens terraseed, what an awful encounter(s) for you while working to help others! You already have read how we all get attacked here, personally, psychically, emotionally, mentally…and physically. It gets so bad some times you absolutely positively must back away and review your options. So you are doing the right thing by looking elsewhere, using your skills, I hope!
      Please know that we, your tribe, are always with you, with support and love…and best wishes. Like all the others have said…I am just adding my voice too.
      Never give up…
      Never surrender…
      Lida

    • im so sorry for what happened to u my dear terraseed =/ and im even upset with me that writing u had slipped my mind for so long =(

      im not saying this lightly… but u know see the new job as an opportunity for a new beginning maybe something u might find happiness and u can unfold yourself…

      little story aside i met once an realy amazing woman that worked in some sort of sense “in public” she had so many interests in the unknown like we do here… i gave her back than tones of material she could go nutz with and read it all and bild her own perspective about this place… a few month later she got fired even booted out of her job and i always felt it was my fault for giving her information about so many things… but u know what she fell right on her feet again… now she is doing what she loves where she can be herself and she can unfold as she pleases…

      anyway think about what makes u happy where u feel good what ur doing… i know its easy said than done… but take ur time find ur true calling 😉 i know u will

      i dont know how long it was ago but when u posted the last time about the bumblebee and the insects… i also noticed something… till a few days ago we had a real absence of insects around here… for example i was wondering that there are very few flies around here normally u always have one or two around here once it gets warm and even other insects… just the last 2 weeks i noticed the flies are back… but for me it was realy odd

      feel ur self hugged =)
      also im gonna cross my fingers that u gonna find something that u gonna love to do =)
      much love and positive energy =)

  3. clif high latest video for those who follow it – he mentions snow! This is unusual for this time of year in the pacific northwest. the type of snow they are analyzing might be an indicator of glaciers forming…

  4. JUST WANTED TO EXPLAIN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE MOVIE A BEAUTIFUL MIND BASED ON A TRUE STORY>
    WHEN HIS WIFE AND OTHERS WOULD WALK TO THE SHED AND SEE JUST PAPERS HANGING IN THE EMPTY SHED, IN HIS MINDS EYE HE ACTUALLY SEEN COMPUTERS AND BELIEVED WITH ALL HIS HUMAN INTELLECT THAT HE WAS DECODING AS MOVIE SHOWED.
    AS MANY ARE EXPERIENCING THE MANDELA EFFECT NOW< ONE CAN RELATE TO ABOVE.

    NOT REALLY ANY DIFFERENT THAN PEOPLE EXPLAINING ALIEN ABDUCTIONS OR PEOPLE SAYING THEY ARE DOING GRID WORK ETC.

    IN ALL CASES IT IS THEIR DEEPEST TRUTH AT THE MOMENT.

    REGARDLESS HOW ONE VIEWS THE NEXT REALM IT IS AN ONGOING LEARNING EXPERIENCE AND ALSO A "SECOND CHANCE" REALM FOR MANY THAT DID NOT OBTAIN THE HIGHEST LEVEL ON THIS REALM. ON THE NEXT REALM EVERYONE WILL BE "LOVE" BASED AND THERE WILL BE MUCH MORE TIME AS WE KNOW IT HERE AND NOT AS INTENSE AS THIS LIFE IS AND MANY MORE ANGELIC HELPERS THAT EVERYONE CAN FULLY SEE WITH THEIR OWN EYES.

    THE KEY IS TO GIVE CREDIT TO THE ANGEL WITHIN AND THANKING THEM AND THEY WILL GUIDE YOU HOW TO BEST WORSHIP THE PRIME CREATOR OR GOD OR THE GOD SPARK IF YOU WILL AKA THE DIVINE MONITOR OR COUNSELOR.

  5. This music “a Hole in the Sun” has such slavic/celtic sound to it, I just cannot get enough of it right now. Not sure I like the graphic, but I do like the Phoenix reference.
    Tumultuous times, indeed. The violin both soothes and energizes.
    Happy and serene Saturday, Tribe ❤

    • Thank you Brianna. I love Two Steps from Hell…they have great music! Sorry to hear bout what happened to you. Hang in there…yes the aggression is really being turned up…but that’s because they are all “dead men walking” their final steps to the electric chair so to speak…they have nothing left to loose, so they’ll try to take as many of us down with them as they can…NOT! It is strange…while I am suffering more chronic fatigue than ever…I just don’t get as upset about it anymore…I KNOW we are winning this!

      Warning…gets pretty verbal…but TRUTH often is…

  6. First…HUGS to the sweet and loving ones….

    To Terraseed, it’s not bad to have a distinct change in our life. I am and we are all with you, supporting you.

    Here is coming this new crop circle which I somehow feel is resonating with something referred in the post !

    Nice to see the beautiful snowy scene with so many precious codes/motives, particularly that “bridge,” “tree” and “moon,” along with that song so sweet to die….just soon after this, I happened to see these delightful works of this Finn-Swedish artist, Inge Löök….feel just like the very various movement of the very sonata !!! These pictures seem depicting two aged sisters who have walked along each other through most of their life. Though their hair is snowy, there is few regret, but cheer which is so magically cheering me up. This is just speaking of some very words on my behalf in terms of your being in my life RIGHT NOW !!!

    The picture below is dedicating to the ones who allow me to find & to be united with, as well the ones who are going to recall….

  7. This is to dedicate to my super important spiritual papa…HAPPY FATHER’S DAY !!!

    Honestly, all my life, I’ve never payed attention to this very date, other than that celebrated in my home island. I even have never been aware that people in that mainland in fact celebrate the father’s day on the different day from ours on island. People on that land, as most of the countries, following the US, celebrate this day today this year; whereas in my home island, we celebrate this day on the double 8, for the pronunciation of 88 sounds almost the same as papa.

    Here, I would like to address my highest homage and praise to my spiritual father, the very crucial one who has not only led me, but also accompanied me all along, and our precious Dave, and all the fathers gathered here.

    Without my spiritual father, I would have almost no possibility to dare to enter this garden, without saying the next. As I know he is the best father not only to his two beautiful, intelligent and spiritual boys around him, also to me, this old spiritual daughter. Being his “old” daughter, I anyhow should and would like to give him a very celebration today !!! For he is the very one who dedicate so much to all of us in this garden, whether publicly or privately, giving his supports in various ways, I would like to invite the resonated ones to have fun in this PARTY FOR CELEBRATING THIS FATHER’S DAY.

    Papa…these magical horses are also coming for bringing you more strength….

  8. For the ones who are interested in the nomads, the empire(s) of Steppes….

  9. i finally found that clip that i wanted to share with u folks…

    i urge u to look at this perspective…

    kinda feels like the same story but a different pen 😉

  10. THANKS TO ALL:

    FREUDIAN SLIP–IS THE SAME EXACT MEANING AS A TERRIBLE SWIFT SWORD> I FULLY EXPECT THE LIGHT ANGEL WITHIN YOU TO DEMONSTRATE THIS TO YOU TODAY IN THE MOST GENTLE WAYS> PAY CLOSE ATTENTION AS IT SHOULD DO IT SEVERAL TIMES SO THERE IS NO MISTAKING WHERE IT COMES FROM.

    Freud·i·an slip
    noun
    noun: Freudian slip; plural noun: Freudian slips

    an unintentional error regarded as revealing subconscious feelings.

  11. THERE IS ANOTHER WORD FOR FATE AND ALSO FITS DESTINY AND THAT IS “BY DESIGN” THERE IS A PARADOX INVOLVED THAT IS HARD TO “SEE” A PERSON HAS TO TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY WITHOUT BEATING YOURSELF UP FOR EVERYTHING THAT WENT WRONG> NOT TO BLAME SO CALLED SATAN >THE DEVIL OR ANY OTHER PERSON THAT MAY HAVE TALKED YOU INTO SOMETHING BUT TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY SAYING TO YOURSELF I MADE THE MISTAKE NOT ANYONE ELSE AND FORGIVE YOURSELF OR ASK FOR FORGIVENESS ALSO FORGIVING THE OTHER PERSON OR PERSONS AS WE ARE ALL LEARNING> THE SECOND PART OF THIS EQUATION IS TO LOOK BACK AND RECOGNIZE THE TIMING OF YOURSELF NOT GOING ANY DEEPER INTO THE ERROR AND WHO IT WAS THAT PULLED YOU OUT OF THE FIRE AND OF COURSE THAT WOULD BE THE “LIGHT” ANGEL WITHIN

  12. AMAZING SONGS ROBIN__THANK YOU

    THE BELOW VIDEO CAN BE SEEN IN SEVERAL WAYS BUT MAYBE THINK BACK TO THE BEAUTIFUL MIND MOVIE AND RELATE AS CAN BE SEEN IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS AND ONE STANDOUT PHRASE IS “RULES CAN BE BENT OR BROKEN”

  13. This is a song sung by a very lovely singer in the very “north” that I’ve never known, just shared by a very intimate spiritual family from the “south!” Her voice sounds just like the morning dew.

    This song melody along with that lyrics sounds so sweet…even wheedling? , just like you, my sweet even hot Robin. If I can, when hearing you singing this, I would have no way but just give you big hugs, though there are still things which are just implacable, even incomparable. Anyhow, may this dew-like ambiance wash away your sorrow, your solitude with its magical tender power….for I’m here with you, my super precious Robin!

      • These are very nice Feilla. She has a beautiful voice. I saw an article about the Sami people and their indigenous women elders circulating on facebook last year. Beautiful people. Thanks. Love those pics you posted as well.

    • Dear Nando, seeing this flag, what occurred to me first is YOU!!! I just shared the pictures of stone carving which look like the Mapuche (one of the indigenous people of Chile, according to you, meaning People of the Land, or People of the Soil) Calendar diagram with that Eastern family who just brought me the Red Book by Jung. She told me that in some spiritual forum, she just shared some resonating / similar ancient Egyptian art TODAY on her some app like blog !!!

      Sorry that I don’t know how to post it here, but give some motives in words, such as RED SUN, embroidered with long red rays, flanked with two smaller red discs, respectively carry a scarab and cross inside. Right below the central sun disc is depicted a big tree, escorted at each side by a cross enlaced by a serpent. The motives presented on ground look interesting, Right below the disc with scarab, it’s the biggest blue scarab at left, whereas its counterpart at right is figured as a red disc with a tiny red cross core. Between this right red disc and the serpent coiling the elongated cross, there is the 3rd scarab, but much smaller, even facing towards the ground. On this ground line, both the big blue scarab at left and the the red disc at right are flanked by smaller trees.

      As to the similar patterns, what I can recall and could find on web look like these…


      So….what a super precious treasure you are just bringing to us !!!

  14. Another precious materials just presented by another spiritual family from the other semi-sphere…I would like to spare my humble English writing here in regards to my own sense, particularly I myself still didn’t have time to read it first. May these pictures which look remarkably resonating with this very timing speak of more on their own.

    THE RED BOOK by Jung
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Red_Book_(Jung)

    For preventing the comment from being restrained owing to the overloaded pixels, troubling my papa, I cannot but post each of them separately….


  15. Feilla!! Those images are amazing! and the flag is very special. The stone carving is mysteriously beautiful, and it looks like the Mapuche Calendar diagram. I know much about the Mapuche (meaning People of the Land, or People of the Soil) being one of the indigenous people of Chile, and I’ve been intrigued by them lately.


    The 4 corners are the 4 seasons of the year, spread through 13 moons. It goes clockwise, so they counted the days and knew when to plant and when to harvest, but the Calendar shows many things… solstices and equinoxes, cardinal points, the moon and the stars, the cosmic bridge…


    It also is a musical instrument


  16. SOMETHING TO THINK ON

    MEMORIES AT THE .22 and .25 MARK

    HAVE BEEN VERY OPEN TO ALL THAT I PERSONALLY DO NOT HOLD MY MEMORIES>
    I DO KNOW BUT CHOOSE NOT TO SO CAN LEARN
    OBVIOUSLY TO ME IT GOES MUCH DEEPER BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE FREE WILL

    REVISIT FROM YESTERDAY

    THERE IS ANOTHER WORD FOR FATE AND ALSO FITS DESTINY AND THAT IS “BY DESIGN” THERE IS A PARADOX INVOLVED THAT IS HARD TO “SEE” A PERSON HAS TO TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY WITHOUT BEATING YOURSELF UP FOR EVERYTHING THAT WENT WRONG> NOT TO BLAME SO CALLED SATAN >THE DEVIL OR ANY OTHER PERSON THAT MAY HAVE TALKED YOU INTO SOMETHING BUT TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY SAYING TO YOURSELF I MADE THE MISTAKE NOT ANYONE ELSE AND FORGIVE YOURSELF OR ASK FOR FORGIVENESS ALSO FORGIVING THE OTHER PERSON OR PERSONS AS WE ARE ALL LEARNING> THE SECOND PART OF THIS EQUATION IS TO LOOK BACK AND RECOGNIZE THE TIMING OF YOURSELF NOT GOING ANY DEEPER INTO THE ERROR AND WHO IT WAS THAT PULLED YOU OUT OF THE FIRE AND OF COURSE THAT WOULD BE THE “LIGHT” ANGEL WITHIN

    PAUSE AT THE 2:22 MARK OF BELOW MUSIC AND ASK YOURSELF IF THAT DOESN’T REMIND YOU OF A BEAUTIFUL MIND MOVIE

    • God….my super HOT Robin, you can just keep rocking me !!! Those Eagle and Condor ones seem to have been coming !!! Thanks also to your reminding of Galactic Signature….My beloved ones, pls take a look of your own Signature, taking a check….

  17. Time… and Love (only my gut feeling, use discernment as always).
    I see that 2 subjects are very much highlighted lately. One is TIME, the other is LOVE.

    Love ..well… Venus made her explanations a few weeks (months ??) ago. Your soulmate is not a fusing of personalities, it’s two people complementing each other. Like finishing each other’s sentences… and thoughts. Prompting new ones, ever expanding. It’s also loyalty, true companionship, and… oh yes, a lot of joy and laughter. This real love can move more than mountains, it can move whole planets 🙂 , The real fusion is not that of personalities, but that of shared thoughts and strength which creates the very essence of a formidable force.

    The same essence of shared thoughts happens when the right people come together, as “tribe” if you will. Then there is a bond of sisterly/brotherly love that forms. Quite unstoppable as well.

    I will leave my thoughts about time in a different post, so we have room for comments.

    • dont they say that love is to see an imperfect person as perfect ? like the yin yang symbol… two imperfect parts build one perfect unit/unity…

    • The gooberz book is about this stuff… and I have been pondering this very thing. I think the idea of soulmate is hacked to suggest that there is only one. A similar idea is “twin flame”. Well perhaps there is, but this seems somewhat limiting. As you say I think the idea can be expanded to community – this has been obliterated to keep us all separate “happy” consumers. Step out in the real world – the closer the living spaces are together, the less you know your neighbors.

      Gooberz is more of a “path” – the process of expansion that starts with “self”. It’s not linear. Once you understand “self”, then this can expand to others. Often in the world this is backwards – marriage first, then figure the rest out. For many at this stage it’s only the start of self-discovery… yet they’re rushed into a life-long contract…

      Tribe – well… worth all the tea in China ❤ 😀 😀 😀

  18. Time : (and timelines), lot of fuss around this lately. More and more.

    Beyond the collapsing timelime(s) I already spoke about and the “you can alter time”* whispered a few weeks ago, I have this … image.
    You know the infinity symbol. The loop, the 8. I always loved it. Posted about it once.

    The time of the loop is over. It must be opened. The symbol changes from a closed loop to and opening at one end. And opening that leads to a Star like … thing.
    Call it the Heavens, call it the God force, Source. It doesn’t matter.
    It opens.

    * I DO believe the “you” can alter time is not meant literally as me, but as US. Of course.

  19. I happened to be led by this video….so great, looks corresponding to that Dave posted yesterday and Brianna was just talking about. Brianna, your linguist capability is just so impressive, for you are just so capable to put some very abstract senses into words. This time, you just lifted me up again in a very magical way, for under the super impact of the double solar solstice + full moon, I fin fact felt somehow quite disconnected and disoriented. Pity that this kind of state seems to have already lasted for quite a long time to me.

    Even when posting this, I cannot help doubting myself, do I really make sense of all these from the precious ones.

    Anyhow, may all in this tribe have a nice Wednesday !!!

    • A LITTLE UNKNOWN FACT IS THAT THE HUMAN JESUS BEFORE HE TOOK FRONT AND CENTER STAGE HAD LOTS OF ROOM TO DOUBT. ALSO LITTLE UNKNOWN FACT IS THAT HE WAS THE FEMININE ESSENCE EVEN THOUGH IN A MALE BODY. HENCE THE MIND OF GOD AND THE HEART OF JESUS. STILL LOTS TO THINK ON BUT YOU AND ALL ARE DOING FINE
      THE TWO WITNESSES ON A WORLD WIDE STAGE___COULD IT BE– TO THE WORLD WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT TO SHOW UNCONDITIONAL FROM GOD

      TO BE ANNOUNCED

      • Would the reverse hold true for the Beloved Woman? 😉 ❤ When she comes…she will be able to turn it all around…the " High Stars" have told her so…it is her hope that the pain will be forgotten…but not the lessons…

    • Thank you Dave….these wolves just remind me of our super precious Lisa ! How are you, my angel ? I miss you so badly. Best wishes to you and your family!!!

  20. KEY PHRASE FROM BELOW:
    BUT TO FIGHT OUR GREATEST ENEMY OURSELVES AKA
