THE RETURN TRIP – Episode 255

…the McKinney boys thought that they had just nodded off a bit…

Old Woman Dozing Over a Book by Nicolaes Maes

“Wait a minute Gussy… I think we are leaving out something in all this. Forget about seeing our long dead/gone/whatever parents on this bizarre planet. I seem to remember thinking that we were phasing in and out of reality right after we lit the SOL fuse.”

“That’s right! I was trying to engage the emergency decelerator and my hand could not reach the console,” Gus recounts his frustration.

“At the time I was thinking we had had it, lab-rat hell, how about you?”

“It did not look good did it bro?”

“And that’s about where we stepped in,” Celeste inserts the current time-stem into their recollection of events.

“Are you telling us that we died and you changed history? That is a bit bizarre?” Deke is coming to grips.

That is when Cerella needed to add the perspective of the time-space angle, #You did expire, right after the point when your molecules destabilized#

“Shit Deke, I told you this was a dream!”

#But we noticed that your presence in the 2051.025 timestem was no longer and after consulting with the High Counsel, we decided to save your lives, for the sake of your mother and father#

“I’m a big fan of the space-time continuum, but I’m pretty sure you have messed with Earth history.”

 

#We have not Gus McKinney. Earth has continued on its path, steeped in the knowledge that you expired in space aboard your version of the Explorer#

“Our version… you talking about SEx?”

#Yes, the other ship named Explorer, Sammy Mac has called it NEWFOUNDLANDER, is in the berth next to yours#

It isn’t long before Deke notices that Gus is discussing time-travel with a very different looking girl.

THE RETURN TRIP – Episode 228

…Sam even looks hurt, but looks can be deceiving, and through the mist of this over oxygenated, faraway world…

Hurt by Lydia Farquhar

#As your cerebral opposite Sampson McKinney, your life companion Celeste may soon be capable of making a hyperphysical transmigration journey of this magnitude. If she did at this very moment, she would be devastated and I cannot allow that#

“He is right Sam,” she is bracing him for a mind-stretching concept, “I told The Elders of my wanting to attempt Earth contact. They do not want to forbid me from doing it, our minds are our own, but it will destroy me to do nothing, to stand by and watch as our sons launch themselves into oblivion.”

She may have well told Sampson that she was leaving for good:

 “Have a good life, too bad you didn’t master telepathy.” {hypothetical}

The fact she aspired to go to Earth, after preaching patience to him for years:

“We will be fine on Eridanus.” {over and over again}

 She may have well as slapped him in the face.

Sam even looks hurt, but looks can be deceiving, and through the mist of this over oxygenated, faraway world he makes a mid-course correction, “Just what can you do for them old man? Can she save their lives without changing history? I hope you know what you are getting her into, messing with the future and all! I’ll have you know that I have a degree in Astrophysics, I have read every Science Fiction novel dealing with time, time travel, and time meddling and almost to the book, when you play with fate, fate jumps up and bites you in the ass!”

His emotional outburst is a test of their resolve.

All the while lending a condescending ear to Sam’s taunting harangue, Ekcello dexterously confers with his cohorts about the latest out-of-body reports from Earth, which only serve to confirm his previous assertions.

#The successful test of an unmanned vehicle at sub-light velocities is leading them to the wrong conclusions. The manned test, which involves your offspring, will result in irreversible bodily damage; your world will mourn their loss like they have mourned yours#
