“Can you imagine?”
“Sure, what am I imagining TW?”
Imagine that you find this guy really hot. This guy is so cool that he has no clue he is cool. You watch him work on things, and you admire the way he thinks. He is kind to you but does not come on to you in any way.
Imagine you work with this guy for months on end, and you don’t think he is noticing you but, he has no ring and never talks about anyone in his life.
Ok, he is single, why? The guy is built, smart and dedicated to his work. You see him working on a pet project that his company allows him to do, and you ask him, ‘what is that for?’
The guy turns to look at you as if for the first time. His eyes relax, and he smiles as he begins to talk with you about his hobby of technical rock climbing.
‘That explains why he is built the way he is but ‘rock climbing?’’
You can tell from his relaxed way of talking about it that if you want to get into his life, you need to try and understand what makes him tick.
You make a note to research rock climbing so you can engage him with more than a passing interest. That night you talk to your friend, who was your roommate in college. She tells you that there is a place not far from her that teaches rock climbing.
Now imagine you are kind of afraid of heights and yet pull it together and learn how to not only master your fears but, you can get to where you are not scared of dying.
With these new-found skills and understanding of the hobby, you began to engage Elliot, Omicron’s ‘fair-haired boy’ regarding a project he is working on. He tells you that it is a device that destabilizes the atomic bonds of the rocks in a narrowly focused beam, making it super easy to place a hold.
Your job, however, is to report back to the owners of Omicron what he is working on. They, of course, see this ‘toy’ as a weapon of immeasurable value. Copying his notes and designs they are sent off to a facility deep within area 51. Elliot is very much against building weapons, and that is why they hired Susan.
Back in 1947, this alien craft supposedly crashed in Roswell. What they didn’t know it was not one but three. Two scout ships crashed just, and one, a much larger intergalactic spacecraft returned into the time-space continuum of the earth, forcing millions of metric tons of rocks to eject from the ground, looking like some kind of geological anomaly. The place is, of course, the ranch where Elliot’s parents were both living when the crash occurred. It is also where they mysteriously, disappeared.
Onboard this craft under the rocks is a sentient computer, much like HAL in Space odyssey. Unlike Hal, this computer can tune into the human brainwaves from quite a distance. That computer takes an unhealthy interest in human sexuality and develops a few quirks along the way. (All characters must have a flaw, right?)
Susan convinced Elliot to let her accompany him on his vacation. She is giddy as she thanked her one day and called her ‘honey.’ ‘He does notice me,’ she thought.
While Susan is in hopes to snag the heart of Elliot, Elliot is in hopes of finding the mystery of where his parents disappeared to, hence the entire interests in rock climbing. Whey they disappeared, that was not one shred of anything left of them. Footsteps that just ended or a mysterious note left in the sand.
On this trip to the back of his ranch, while rock climbing, Elliot would dislodge some rocks that fall into a crevasse, and when they land, they make a mysterious ‘clunk.’
Ok, this is you. Whether you are Elliot or Susan, what happens next is an adventure into another world. What will you find, and what will you do?
The military has a listening post not too far away, and that all plays into this adventure, which starts out ‘Under Roswell.’
