Robo Cop – Movie Review

0

SciFi fans,

I have a futuristic fiction cop movie review that you’re sure to like. The setting is Detroit Michigan.

RoboCopWe meet Pat Novak; The Novak Element. Tonight’s State of the Union segment he’s joined by General Curtis Monroe live from the war room in the Pentagon: General Monroe is live. Monroe explains in detail his operation. He shows the green ED-209’s. The purple EM-208’s. Security drones at work in Tehran.

Operation Freedom Tehran; Kelly Perkins. ED-209’s are keeping the peace. EM-208’s are mopping up the mess.

General Curtis, “We had Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan. Never again. From a military perspective this has been invaluable. No loss of American lives.”

During the live broadcast there is a terrorists attack in Tehran. The terrorists are quickly killed by the large ED- 209’s and the human looking EM- 208’s. Pat Novak wants to use the machines here in America to keep the peace. He says America is robophobic.

Raymond Sellars, entrepreneur and true American, invented the robots.

Senator Hubert Dreyfus has a bill that prohibits the use of drones on U.S. soil. The American people support the Dreyfus Act.

Pat Novak supports Mr. Sellar’s efforts to make our country and our viewers safer. “What’s more important than the safety of the American people?” Novak asks.

Police Chief Karen Dean, of the DPD

Police Chief Karen Dean, of the DPD

Detroit Police Headquarters – Detective Alex Murphy works there. He got a lead on Antoine Vallon. He talks to his boss, Police Chief Karen Dean, of the DPD. She wants to know what the lead is. “Ok Alex Murphy, tell me,” Karen says.

Jack is Alex’s partner. “We got a line on some guns. We met up with this low-level G called Jerry who ends up havin’ a piece he’s not supposed to have. Where the hell you get a gun like that, Jerry?”

Jerry replied, “I can get you two whole crates full, man.”

“Two crates?” Murphy asks.

Jack, “No disrespect, J, but how a clown like you get so much product, man?”

“What’s it matter where it comes from?” Jerry.

Murphy, “No dirty guns, Jerry.”

“These guns got bodies on em’ Jerry?” Jack.

The meeting quickly becomes ugly. Jerry says, “Man, I work for Antoine Vallon.”

Murphy to Karen, “I ran the serial numbers on the rifles. The guns are supposed to be in our evidence room; not on the streets. The intake papers are blank; no signatures. Vallon thinks me and Jack are gun buyers; he bought it.”

Earlier – Upon investigation, Murphy discovers the guns are indeed missing from the evidence room. “How could this happen? Inside job. Dirty Cops; but who? Can’t trust anyone.”

Vallon was tipped offed just before the deal was closed. Someone informed him that Murphy and Jack were cops. “Make sure you kill them both!” Vallon yells angrily as he exits the building. The gun battle begins as Vallon flees the sceen.

(Jack) Lewis is shot in the gun fire. “Officer down! Officer Down! 331 Hamilton. This is Detective Alex Murphy. Need immediate medical assistance. 331 Hamilton Rd.

Back at Police Headquarters- Police Chief Karen Dean tells Murphy, “It’s up to IAD to determine if officers are supplying Vallon with police guns. I’ll handle it.”

Senator Hubert Dreyfus At Washington Senate

Senator Hubert Dreyfus At Washington Senate

Washington D.C.- Mr. Sellars and Liz Kline are speaking before the Senate, “My droids feel no anger, no prejudice, no fatigue which makes them ideal for law enforcement.”

Senator Hubert Dreyfus, author of the Dreyfus Act, “72% of the American people are against these robots. They feel nothing if they kill an innocent child.”

Omnicorp Headquarters; Detroit – America is their most valuable market and they can’t touch it; a $600 billion per annum market. They’ve tried to buy Senators to revoke the Dreyfus Act without success. “So unless we sway public opinion, the battle’s lost. An aggressive new campaign, wow factor off-the-charts.”

Liz Kline, “Sir, there are No loop holes in the Dreyfus Act. We can’t put a machine on the streets.”

Raymond Sellars idea, “We’re gonna put a man inside a machine.”

Omnicorp Foundation Rehab Ward – Dr. Dennett Norton Ph. D – “You’re not you because of your legs, your arms, your hands. You’re you because of your brain. It’s your brains capacity to process information that makes you who you are. Relax and do what you’ve always done, Micheal.”

Micheal is learning to play the guitar again with his new artificial hands. He’s attempting to play the CONCIERTO DE ARANJUEZ.

Dr. Norton and Raymond Sellars at Omnicorp Rehab Ward

Dr. Norton and Raymond Sellars at Omnicorp Rehab Ward

Raymond Sellars comes to Omnicorp Rehab Ward to speak to Dr. Norton. He wants Norton to develop combat applications. “I can put real revenue stream behind your research and save thousands of lives in the process.”

“Vallon, Lewis’ hospital. Alex is stopping by this afternoon. Detective Murphy’s a little impulsive. Do you want to send flowers?” Vallon listening on his cell phone.

Vallon replies, “I kill a cop, I’m lookin’ over my shoulder the rest of my life. That’s not good for business.”

“Who do you think’s gonna be investigating you?”

Later – Alex Murphy visits Lewis at his hospital room. He’s going after Lake and Daniels; arrests in a month, he feels confident.

Marcus reports to Vallon as he approaches Murphy’s car. He puts an explosive device in the left front wheel housing of Murphy’s car.

Later at home- Murphy’s car alarm goes off by itself. Murphy investigates. When he opens the car door; BOOM!

Alex James Murphy the Patient

Alex James Murphy the Patient

The Patient Alex James Murphy at Omnicorp Rehab Ward and Dr. Norton – “Alex suffered 4th degree burns over 80% of his body. His lower spine was severed. He’ll be paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. Blind in one eye. Deaf. If he survives.”

3 Months Later – Alex Murphy is dreaming he’s dancing with his wife, Clara. She’s wearing a sexy evening dress. Frank Sinatra is singing.

Alex Murphy -The Fraction of A Man

Alex Murphy -The Fraction of A Man

He wakes and is shown what he has become. He’s a robot; a metal man. He escapes Omnicorp. Soon, Dr. Norton shuts him down and has him brought back. “I want to Die!” he says when he sees how little is left of him. He is only a fraction of a man. “Never show me this again.”

Murphy quickly learns how to use his suit and weapons. He also begins to investigate his own assassination attempt. He learns that the Detroit PD has let Vallon off the hook; lack of evidence. Closed the case.

Omnicorp Testing Facility in China

Omnicorp Testing Facility in China. Alex is transported there for testing. EM-208’s attack with .47 caliber rifles. During the battle, Alex is programmed so the machine within him takes over. It’s an illusion for the American people. In reality the machine is fighting inside him; not him. Quickly and easily Murphy wins the battle and the test; destroying all the EM-208’s.

Alex Murphy visits Home

Alex Murphy visits Home

Back in Chicago- Alex goes for a difficult but long overdue visit to his family. The visit goes well. It’s good for his son to see his dad. Now he’s going after Vallon.

Detroit Police Headquarters – He’s given instant access to criminal records plus archive of CCTV footage from 2011 to present. Kim uploads the footage. The entire DPD database into his brain. He has a seizure. His dopamine levels are dropped to 2% to stop the seizure. “Now he’s only a machine,” Dr. Norton orders.

Meanwhile Outside: Mayor Durant is about to speak on the stage and introduce Detroit’s new weapon on crime. Murphy walks out on stage, past his wife and son without acknowledging them, and analyzes the crowd.

Pat Novak; The Novak Element reports, “He does recognize Thomas King, the convicted felon, from the DPD data base; wanted for arson, murder, and rape. On the loose for six years; apparently hiding in Detroit. Detective Murphy brought him down immediately. Robo Cop is here. In 60 seconds, Detective Murphy brought him down. Men weren’t up to the task. Robo Cop was. Robo Cop is on the job.

The Novak Face Off

The Novak Face Off

Now, the CEO of Omnicorp, Raymond Sellars is on The Novak Face Off. Omni’s stock is through the roof. Robo Cop is a Big hit. Detroit has a brighter future. The senate has agreed to vote on the repeal of the Dreyfus Act. Mr. Sellars wants all Americans to be safe.

Senator Hubert Dreyfus, also a guest, has an entirely different opinion.

Sellars, “One system has cut crime by 80% in one large American city. Imagine if we put 100 systems into place in America.”

Pat Novak closes his show with the question, “Has the U.S. Senate became pro-crime?”

Vallon

Vallon

Vallon speaks to his police friends , “$5000. I want protection. Robo Cop’s hurting my business. I can’t move any product.”

Murphy begins to overpower his programming. His dopamine levels begin to stabilize within normal range. He’s going after Vallon. He’s solving his own murder. Vallon has a plan to stop him; .50 caliber aimed for Robo Cop’s head. Quickly a vicious gun battle erupts. Automatic weapons are firing everywhere in the night.

Detroit Police Headquarters – Murphy, “I recovered 26 guns from Vallon’s warehouse. I lifted John Lake and Andre Daniel’s prints off some of them. Thirteen serial numbers matched weapons missing from police evidence. Daniels panics and implicates Police Chief Karen Dean, “Karen was in on it too. She tipped off Vallon.” Murphy kills Lake and Daniels. At gun point, “Karen Confess! Confess!” He’s taken off line before he can kill Chief Dean.

The Next Day – The vote for the Dreyfus Act takes place in Congress. 63 for repeal 22 against; The Dreyfus Act is repealed.

Dr. Norton wants Murphy’s family taken care of beyond their wildest dreams. Full funding. Ten years. New staff, all my own people.

“Deal,” Raymond Sellars says.

ED-209’sRaymond Sellars calls Mattox; his hit man, “Dennett’s on board. Get it done.”

“My pleasure,” Mattox.

Sellars tells Murphy’s wife her husband’s dead.

Mattox shut Murphy down before he got a confession from Police Chief Dean. Dr. Norton removed his transmitter. He can’t be shut down again. Sellars can’t afford to wake you up; he wants you dead.

Robo Cop

Robo Cop is on the Job!

Alex is going after Sellars. He enters Omnicorp and fights ED-209’s. He’s injured in the battle. Lewis, Murphy’s partner comes to his aid; he gets shot.

On the chopper pad Murphy shoots Sellars as Sellars shoots Murphy. Murphy’s wife and son are there.

Alex lives and Dr. Norton gives him a new suit. Soon he’s back to work.

The president vetoed the senate bill and upheld The Dreyfus Act. Much to Pat Novak’s disapproval.

This is one of the most interesting movies I’ve ever seen and one of my favorites. Could this be the future of law enforcement? I wonder?

Hope you enjoyed my review. Thanks for stopping by.

Dr. Rewqust and his Researchers are Mad Scientists!

0

Greetings Coteries in the Milky Way, it’s J.A. Ireland,

There’s been a lot of disturbing news from Dr. Rewqust and Qashlet lab recently. The words, Mad Scientists, are being used again in an article by Veem Weazan of The Wet Lands News. It seems, Xuro Qashlet and his team of scientists are unconcerned about the consequences of their genetic code modifying experiments. I’ll let you read this alarming article.

Dr. Rewqust and his Researchers are Mad Scientists!

The Wet Lands News:

Inside Qashlet Lab

Inside Qashlet Lab

Dr. Rewqust and his team of researchers are reportedly engaging in numerous experiments involving genetic code modification and have been for some time. It has been reported to us that Xuro Qashlet, the owner of Qashlet lab, his instructed his team of unethical and unscrupulous scientists to do whatever is necessary to further their horrific research into genetic code restructuring.  It would seem Mr. Qashlet sees monetary advantage in this pursuit. Their frightening work is under the umbrella of improving hatchling counts, which all Sesleans need.  All coteries are plagued by low hatchling yields—some more severely than others.

The Secret Room In Qashlet Lab

The Secret Room In Qashlet Lab

By means of DNA gene modifications, the lab is experimenting on un-hatched embryos.  It is believed that the lab is attempting to alter the genetic code chain of embryos causing a new creation or frightening mutation.  There have been reports of mutated embryos hatching while assuming grotesque forms. These horrific, mutated embryos don’t live long.  “Many citizens fear these radical experiments will become a reality.”  There are reports that these mutants are already surviving.  If that’s true, they could become horrific criminals or worse, they could become mutated zombies, or grotesquely disfigured cannibals.  What will we do then?

This reporter doesn’t have to remind anyone of the effects of genetic restructuring when it comes to the sea doxer.  Many wet landers are concerned that these experiments are having a similar result.  As we all know, the many Sesleans that have mutated due to doxer fever are frightening, grotesque mutants and are confined to mental hospitals or asylums.  Will Qashlet Lab produce evil, horrific mutants that our asylums and hospitals cannot control?  Will they create mutants that attack and eat Sesleans?  This reporter is fearful.

This leads me to my final question that many coteries are asking.  Are Dr. Rewqust and his team of scientists mutating embryos for profit without concern?  Thus creating a more frightening and horrifying strain of mutants that our society cannot control?  Are Dr. Rewqust and his scientists a team of mad scientists?  Concerned citizens want to know.  I want to know?

Written by Veem Weazan

J.A. again; there you have it. Many citizens of the wet lands and the desert are concerned about what the scientists at Qashlet lab might be creating. Rumors have circulated for years about a secret room where Rewqust performs genetic code experiments; this room has never been seen be anyone.

It is mine, as well as other’s belief that the Gang of Five, the heinous mutant group with super intelligence, is a product of the mutation experiments of Qashlet lab; possible created in the secret room?  If our suspicions are correct, what else will they create? The thought is horrifying.

I’ll keep you informed of further developments. Until we talk again.

May good fortune guide your path.

Rosetta’s Comet Races Through Space

0

Space Enthusiasts,

Isn’t it fun to track asteroids,comets, and ships in space. I’ve been a space fan since my youth. This includes scifi books, movies, and TV shows; Star Trek being one of my all time favorites.

COMET SINKHOLES GENERATE JETS

COMET SINKHOLES GENERATE JETS

Another thing I’m keeping a close eye on is the comet, Rosetta. It’s racing through our solar system along with everything else. Here’s some information from Nasa’s website. nasa.gov. about Rosetta’s Comet.

A number of the dust jets emerging from Rosetta’s comet can be traced back to active pits that were likely formed by a sudden collapse of the surface. These ‘sinkholes’ are providing a glimpse at the chaotic and diverse interior of the comet.

Rosetta has been monitoring Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s activity for over a year, watching how its halo of dust and gas grows as the comet moves closer to the Sun along its orbit.

From a distance of a few hundred kilometres, Rosetta observes an intricate pattern of the dust jets emitted from the nucleus as they stream out into space. But now, thanks to high-resolution images from the OSIRIS camera from distances of just 10–30 km from the comet centre last year, at least some of these dust jets can be traced back to specific locations on the surface, the first time this has ever been seen.

In a study reported today in the science journal Nature, 18 quasi-circular pits have been identified in the northern hemisphere of the comet, some of which are the source of continuing activity.

The pits are a few tens to a few hundreds of metres in diameter and extend up to 210 m below the surface to a smooth dust-covered floor. Material is seen to be streaming from the most active pits.

“We see jets arising from the fractured areas of the walls inside the pits. These fractures mean that volatiles trapped under the surface can be warmed more easily and subsequently escape into space,” says Jean-Baptiste Vincent from the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, lead author of the study.

Scientists analysing the images think that the pits are formed when the ceiling of a subsurface cavity becomes too thin to support its own weight and collapses as a sinkhole. This exposes the fractured interior of the comet, allowing otherwise hidden material to sublimate, thus continuing to erode the pit over time.

Active pits medium

“Although we think the collapse that produces a pit is sudden, the cavity in the porous subsurface could have growing over much longer timescales,” says co-author Sebastien Besse, of ESA’s ESTEC technical centre in the Netherlands.

The authors suggest three possible ways the voids are formed.

One idea is that they have existed since the comet itself formed, as a result of very low-speed collisions between primordial building blocks tens to hundreds of metres in size. The collapse of the roof above such a void could then be triggered through weakening of the surface, perhaps by sublimation or via seismic shaking or impact from boulders ejected from elsewhere on the comet.

Another possibility is the direct sublimation of pockets of volatile ices like carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide below the surface, heated by the warmth of sunlight penetrating an insulating top layer of dust.

Alternatively, sublimation could be driven by the energy liberated by water ice changing its physical state from amorphous to crystalline then sublimating the more volatile surrounding carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide ices.

This is fascinating stuff. While we’re on the name Rosetta, there’s also a satellite by that name. I took this information from nasa.gov as well.

Rosetta the satellite began her mission of traveling the galaxy in March 2004. The journey began in with an Ariane-5 launch from Kourou in French Guiana. The three-tonne spacecraft was first inserted into a parking orbit, before being sent on its way towards the outer Solar System.

Unfortunately, no existing rocket, not even the powerful European-built Ariane-5, has the capability to send such a large spacecraft directly to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

Instead, Rosetta will bounce around the inner Solar System like a ‘cosmic billiard ball’, circling the Sun almost four times during its ten-year trek to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

Along this roundabout route, Rosetta will enter the asteroid belt twice and gain velocity from gravitational ‘kicks’ provided by close fly-bys of Mars (2007) and Earth (2005, 2007 and 2009).

Rosetta Earth Fly By

Rosetta Earth Fly By

Rosetta first travels away from its home planet and then encounters Earth again, a year after launch, in March 2005.

Rosetta remains active during the cruise to Earth. The fly-by distance is between 300 and 14 000 kilometres. Operations mainly involve tracking, orbit determination and payload check-out. Orbit correction manoeuvres take place before and after each fly-by.

After the first fly-by of Earth in March 2005, Rosetta heads to Mars and then returns to Earth twice in November 2007 and November 2009 for its second and third fly-bys of our planet.

Rosetta Swings By Mars

Rosetta Swings By Mars

Rosetta flies past Mars in February 2007 at a distance of about 200 kilometres, obtaining some science observations.

An eclipse of Earth by Mars lasts for about 37 minutes, causing a communication black-out.

The spacecraft goes into passive cruise mode on the way to the asteroid belt. Rosetta observes the asteroids from a distance of a few thousand kilometres. Science data recorded on board are transmitted to Earth after the fly-by.

How Rosetta wakes up from deep space hibernation. After a large deep-space manoeuvre, the spacecraft goes into hibernation. During this period, Rosetta records its maximum distances from the Sun (about 800 million kilometres) and Earth (about 1000 million kilometres). Rosetta wakes up from deep space hibernation on 20 January 2014.

Rosetta arrives at comet.

In May 2014, Rosetta’s thrusters begin to brake the spacecraft, so that it can match Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko’s speed and orbit.Rosetta finally arrived at the comet on 6 August 2014. It is currently making the exciting transition to global mapping, lander deployment and the comet chase towards the sun.

This is so exciting; Rosetta’s Comet is terrific. I’ll continue to follow the comet right here.

The Dunjyn Asylum Escape; Free Today

0

Dear SciFi Readers,

My entire life I’ve dreamed of being a writer. Several years ago I pursued that dream. I created Detective Maxx Zeqster, Sesla…The Enchanted Planet, and a lot of other characters that makes my Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases work.

The Dunjyn Asylum EscapeSesla is a magical planet within the Whirlpool Galaxy; she’s bewitched and beautiful; just as spectacular as the galaxy she dwells within. She loves and provides for her beloved animals, coteries, and plant life that dwells on her surface and in her mystical seas.

Just as the Whirlpool Galaxy is similar to the Milky Way in many ways, in many ways Sesla appears similar to a very small earth—in some ways. In other ways, she’s very different—very different indeed.

Today I’m giving away free downloads of the fourth book in my Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases series, The Dunjyn Asylum Escape. In this youth, SciFi horror book, we join Detective Maxx Zeqster as he travels to the wet lands on a daring, life-threatening, mission to find a cure for Art’s dying parents in Dunjyn Asylum. Will he be successful or will he become another doxer fever mutant?

I hope you take advantage of my free offer and meet Detective Maxx Zeqster, Art Nekuma, and many of the other characters including the Mad Scientist; Dr. Myro Rewqust at Qashlet Lab. 

If you like, click on my book cover and get transported to my Kindle page for a free down-load.
