Helm of the Elizabeth Swann, Master & Commander John Storm, British Royal Navy, hails the 'KoolArctic' Antarctic survey ship.

 

 

Commander John Storm RN, hails the 'KoolArctic' British Antarctic survey ship from the helm of the Elizabeth Swann. John, Dan and Charley, are adjusting to the sub zero South Pole temperatures, by dressing in warmer gear. John has always been a fan of the famous explorers: Sir Ernest Shackleton and Captain Robert Scott. Unlike Dan and Kitty (John's faithful tabby cat) he loves the breathtaking scenery and bracing cold air. He never thought he'd be a naval attaché for the British Secret Service.

 

 

 

 


<<< NO REMORSE

 

 

CHAP 21: EPILOGUE & DEBRIEFING - Commander John Storm filed a final report with MI6, also advising the United Nations via UNESCO of a great loss to science. An evolutionary missing link, not for the involvement of military staff, due to obvious conflicts of interests. Bound to seek to bio weaponize, for biological warfare.

 

He suggested that the South Pole should be examined further for clues as to how and when these animals evolved, lived, and survived in the ice. Cautioning that only fully vetted and trained archaeologists should complete such a study, not the military, who should be prevented from accessing sensitive areas.

 

These scientists would need to be briefed by him and sworn to secrecy, and the location should be designated Antarctic Area 51.

 

He did not include in his report the few touching moments that he and Charley Temple had experienced with the Sectasaur, he called King King. Or the fact, that the creature they engaged with was extremely intelligent, caring and kind. Even protective of human life. He (they) doubted anyone would believe them.

 

In the weeks following this adventure and death of the subject, a ghost fishing net is discovered off the east coast of America, prompting renewed calls of the United Nations to force tagging of all fishing gear. The discarded (ghost) fishing net contained the half eaten corpses of the KoolArctic crew, who had all been trapped in the netting and drowned, earlier, than if they'd been free swimming aiming at an ocean green lane, or huddled together against the cold.

 

The Report was headed "Top Secret." Only for the eyes of the director of MI6, and the Secretary General of the UNESCO arm of the United Nations. Including the IOC and GOOS, oceanographic observation platforms.

Suki Hall is a marine biologist and oceanographer, normally, specializing in cetaceans. She is intrigued by the find of previously unknown species in Antarctica. Wondering how they grew so large, and how they survived in the cold.

SECTASAUR™ - CHAPTERS (APPROX 5 MINS PER SCENE)

 

PART 1

 

CHAPTER 1: US ARKTOS 1838 EXPEDITION - The ice melts at both poles revealing features on the land not seen for thousands of years. A converted Frigate, the US Arktos is discovered at the South Pole locked into melting ice, then freed.

CHAPTER 2: TUNNEL COMPLEX - Discovery of a labyrinth of tunnels beneath the ice, dated by scientists to be many millions of years old, is leaked to Jill Bird, BBC world service, via Sky news and Discovery Channel. Supporting John Cleves Symmes theory of 1818.


CHAPTER 3: GOLD RUSH - Three expeditions launched by competing concerns, Swedish, Multinational & Cathy Carter, backed by the CIA. The third funded by Chinese, Lin Po Chang. Land grab for mineral rights and archaeological exclusivity, prehistoric insect DNA. King Kong.

CHAPTER 4: U.N. CALL FOR JOHN STORM - MI6 and the UN decide to send in John Storm and the Elizabeth Swan. Dan Hawk and Charley Temple speed from the Southern Ocean to the Weddell Sea and there to Deception Island, an extinct volcano.

 

CHAPTER 5: IT'S MURDER ON THE ICE - Several fatal accidents occur in quick succession, then an egg clutch is discovered in a section of a tunnel. Chang eliminates the remaining opposition. Then nurtures one thawed egg through a simulated incubation.

CHAPTER 6: BOUND FOR ENGLAND - The creature is smuggled aboard Ice Patrol survey vessel 'KoolArctic' bound for England, eats two crew members. Second mate on KoolArctic reports the chaos aboard vessel to the British Admiralty, abandons (scuttles) ship.


CHAPTER 7: BASECAMP - John's team set up camp onshore, locate the excavation site, using the 'Ark' (a DNA database). Storm finds dead explorers & uncovers disturbing new evidence to support theory that dinosaurs were not entirely wiped out by a meteor striking the earth. Suki Hall is contacted, RN approach John.

 

PART 2

 

CHAPTER 8: WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH - Confirmed, they lived when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Dinosaurs starve in volcanic/asteroid winter. Sectasaurs have higher tolerance to freezing conditions, eat competition, then hibernate. Suki Hall hypothesis merit worthy, supported scientific community.

CHAPTER 9: WORST FEARS CONFIRMED - From DNA analysis aboard energy depleted Elizabeth Swan, Storm estimates species grew to between 3-5 metres, warm blooded with high tolerance to low temperatures. Team realize danger to humans, alert MOD & CIA to the danger. John made Master & Commander RN.


CHAPTER 10: - ATLANTIC EXPRESS - Storm and crew head to England at high speed, breaking record on hydrofoils. Sectasaur stows away on Atlantic Express. Meanwhile Chang has landed in Portsmouth.

CHAPTER 11: HAMPSHIRE - The giant prehistoric animal jumps ship, feeds on New Forest ponies, gaining attention of Hampshire police, relayed to MI6 and thence to John Storm.

CHAPTER 12: BUCKLERS HARD - Storm heads up the Beaulieu River to Bucklers Hard, following pony corpses toward a wooded area near Worts Gutter (Furzey Lane). Storm calls military for backup. Chang heads to Buckler's Hard, and Worts Gutter.

CHAPTER 13: CAT & MOUSE - Storm and Temple play cat and mouse with Sectasaur - when the giant insect came up from behind over the brow of a ravine and knocks Charley nearly unconscious. Storm strikes the creature with an axe, causing partial shock. 

 

PART 3

 

CHAPTER 14: FIRST AID - Charley and John patch creature's wound with antiseptic and bandages. The giant insect feigns immobility. Understands dialogue between John and Charley is not aggressive or threatening, and marks these two humans down as allies.

 

CHAPTER 15: SECTASAUR RESCUES JOHN - John panics with axe. Creature lashed out in reflex throwing John over a ledge. John at the mercy of creature. The huge insect puts itself at risk to pull John up to safety. Meanwhile government troops, Territorial Army reservists are closing in.

CHAPTER 16: PUZZLING SITUATION - John dusts himself, while magnificent insect cleans itself. John offers hand palm up to the creature. The animal studies with both feelers, tickling him. John's heart pounding, at risk of amputation, enjoying leap of faith. It understands and responds to voice communication.

CHAPTER 17: ALL FRIENDS - Charley joins from bracken and saw the interaction between John and the insect. She proffers her hand, the prehistoric insect smelled her all over with its antennae. Charley giggled at the friendly touch. Temple shot in arm by troops, insect in head. Chang witnesses interchange.

CHAPTER 18: HOSTILE FIRE - Troops fire wounding animal. John & Charley both leap in front of insect yelling to stop firing, but Charley is shot in the arm and screams. The giant insect moves to protect them both from the gunfire, taking more hits and another to the head. It collapsed, feelers limp. Dead. Gone.

CHAPTER 19: ATTACK SUBSIDES - John and Charley shout as loud as they can, stopping firing. They reach insect. They raised its feelers, Charley and John take one each, and the trio embraced for a minute, its antennae were limp - there was no reviving it - tears, anger - it was gone. J&C in shock for a moment.

 

CHAPTER 20: NO REMORSE - John & Charley anger welling up inside, tears gave way to action. A rhinoceros soldier is delighted at kill. "Yes," cried the soldier. "Yes," said John, punching the trigger happy fool out. Up to that point other military thought they had saved their lives. Chang is devastated at loss.

CHAPTER 21: EPILOGUE & DEBRIEFING - John files a report with the United Nations and MI6, advising of a great loss to science. Keep watching brief for any repeats, finds, missing links, etc. Watching brief with increased security, military conflicts. Further investigations needed. Chang vows to return to Antarctica.

The artwork is also suitable for use in "Jimmy Watson's Magic Dinobot." A proposed network TV serialization, about boy who saves his paper round money to buy himself a robot for Christmas. Then, when assembled, it come to life, to become his friend. ARTWORK - Somewhat better than the huge ants in "Them," but perhaps not as good as the CGI in Antman. Now a museum exhibit in Sussex, England. The artwork is based on an Australian Bulldog ant.
