THE RETURN TRIP – Next to Last Episode
…#The enemies of your United States of America, the United Korean Peninsula would take advantage of Stellar Explorer’s imminent failure…
#When the High Counsel convened, some time ago, we had one specific issue to deal with; the effect of the humans on the stability of our society#
#We were prepared to deal with the introduction of change, until the drumbeat of a young pioneer became deafening. Your son Gus’ reluctance to accept his situation forced us to reconsider some of our positions and we discovered we could solve one problem, the one of temporal tampering.
#We had originally assumed that should Stellar Explorer and your sons be allowed to return to Earth, after we made the necessary corrections to their flaws, that it would destabilize the time-stem they were operating in. What we found farther out in the future changed our minds.
#The enemies of your United States of America and treacherous infection to your planet, the United Korean Peninsula would take advantage of Stellar Explorer’s imminent failure and embark on their own space program, go on to dominate your Solar System, and eventually force its flawed ideology on inferior planets they meet along the way. It is not our practice to tamper with the future, its past or its current, but we could not allow that reality to exist in a galaxy where coexistence is so vital, not dominance#
Memories of the long-past Ÿ€Ð invasion is never far from their minds.
#Gus McKinney travels in a vehicle of which there is no match. He will return to the 2051.025 time-stem without knowing how the improvements came to be. He will experience strange dreams in the aftermath, dreams that will haunt him, taunt him, and cause him to search for their meaning.
#We on Eridanus will be watching and waiting#
Those that Gus leaves behind, the Space Family McKinney on Eridanus stand together, bolstered by the wise Ekcello, pinning their hopes on Gus and his indomitable spirit of exploration.
