S E C T A S A U R™ - RESCUES JOHN STORM
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.
CHAP 15: SECTASAUR RESCUES JOHN - The insectoid feigned recovery, when John panicked and again went for the axe. Also as a reflex action the dino ant lashed out at John, throwing him backwards over a ledge, and Charley sprawling through some undergrowth. John managed to grab hold of a few roots, but was losing his grip and the plants he had a hold of were coming loose from the ledge - he was now at the mercy of the creature.
you've got me, it's your call. I didn't mean to hurt you, it was a
reflex action. Charley, run and get help."
Meanwhile Territorial Army reservists (deputized government troops) are closing in from the Southampton maritime squadron, Royal Logistics Corps. Sergeant Harry Windsor (Rhino) and his men sees what looks to them like a struggle, so increase their pace determined to kill the creature.
The highest ranked in charge of the Army Corp is Sergeant Rhino, a brute of a man, solid muscle, but not overly endowed in the brains department, and somewhat short sighted. Though loyal and dependable, which makes up for his lack of strategy on occasion.
John grasps the Sectasaur's leg, and it pulls him up to safety. "Charley, forget about getting help, we seem to have an accord."
"I noticed John," somewhat taken aback at the turn of events. "Forgotten."
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.
Following the amazing discovery of a clutch of Sectasaur eggs, Lin Po Chang plots to eliminate the competition
SECTASAUR™ - CHAPTERS (APPROX 5 MINS PER SCENE)
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.
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.
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 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.
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
The huge insect puts itself at risk to pull John up to safety. Meanwhile government troops,
Territorial Army reservists are closing in.
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.
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.
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.
