The Cape Coral Heroes
The city of Cape Coral, Florida is a very quiet town. There usually is not much going on there other than little things usually happening. Disputes from store owners to store owners, cops and a scattering of small time robbers, some teenage kids doing stupid pranks or something like that but generally seldom did really serious things happen here. Our hero David and his lifetime female friend Cressida work at the Cape Coral Senior Citizen Complex. It is a nice, neat, tidy place where elders live with wide, open spaces and within complexes with a lot of room. There are volleyball courts, pools, yoga, palates and other classes. The pools indoor and out are wide but not too deep. There is a large building containing a dance and recreation center. There are a lot of TV’s here, all on different channels. The town and senior facility can be explained as nothing less than a golden ager (or as some would say – matriarch) utopia.
But, like here and everywhere on the planet now and again really crazy disasters would hit like a falling building, an attack from some oversized ocean creature, a tumbling communications tower and any manner of disasters that could result in mass death and destruction. If it were not for our embedded super hero (Safety Goggle) especially here in Cape Coral I’m afraid any sense of heaven on earth could simply not be possible. The question you have to ask yourself is who or what is trying to destroy a person, place or our Cape Coral Garden of Eden? Secondly, what is going to happen to either resolve or contend with these strange and ever increasing seemingly targeted events trying to wreak havoc on an otherwise community most people only ever dream about?

A Tethered Web of Evasion: A Science Fiction Adventure
Since the space lift was first conceptualized in 1895 by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the idea of a space elevator has intrigued and challenged scientists. Suddenly, technical aspects are resolved, and the construction of a space elevator promises to open up the Solar System to all of humanity. Seems that soon, Satellites or other payloads will be “launched” into orbit – without rockets, merely by attaching them to the tether with a machine that climbs – hauling the payload to the end of the cable and then letting it go into space. It will be that shimmering bridge between Earth and space that mankind will climb to the stars!
The scientist that announced the solution to the last challenge in the building of the elevator tether is treated as a world hero. Meanwhile, the head of the military starts receiving data that suggests something else is going on in our outer atmosphere and begins researching deeper. It is discovered that there are aliens in orbit around the planet. The military also discovers these aliens had made contact with the hero scientist while he was performing duties at the ISS. They suspect that meeting was related to the tether and the advanced technological information exchange had a deeper and subsequent evil meaning.It dawns on a handful of scientists and military members that the aliens could use the tether and the climbing machine to overcome their inability for their cargo craft to penetrate Earth’s atmosphere and “come down” once the first payload is brought up. Will the launch happen? Are the aliens really preparing to “come down” the tether? What is the end game really on either side of the developing situation?

The catastrophe did not completely destroy Earth and some inhabitable areas remained. A new government is created on Earth, separate from the laws and government of the orbiters. Laws include it being illegal for any of the orbiters to return to Earth unless they are married to someone on the planet. Despite it being 200 years later, relationships are strained but fairly peaceful and lines of communication remain open. Finding a terrestrial (Earth person) to marry online is one legal ticket home.

The Mars Colony Geminate: Humans Meet Interstellar Explores
Danyon Daimler is an 11-year-old prodigy child who left his life on Earth. His parents were selected to be a part of the colony that was based on Mars. When not in school Danyon explored the water caverns and water system that the colony uses to sustain their Earth-based resources. Advay is a Martian humanoid that Danyon meets in the water caverns and befriends. Advay reveals that they are part of a race that colonized Mars (or as they call it, Rugben) many decades prior to the technological colonization of Mars by the humans.
Advay is therefore not a true “Martian”. The Talby’s had setup a design of living that was based underneath the planet’s surface, as such the humans were none the wiser of their presence and the Talby’s had the opportune advantage of observing these fellow colonizers. Danyon and Advay talked about their race’s characteristics for two years. The meeting of Advay and Danyon resulted in the eventual peaceful introduction of evolving humans to superior interstellar existence.
