Science Fiction Internet Drama

I got an email from a guy called Rupert informing me of his new sci fi project on Kirill Fascinating is a word Science Officer Spock uses when unpredictable circumstances strike him with wonder and I have to admit the Vulcan is one of my favourite Star Trek characters.

The green blooded mortal Spock is famous for his pure logical reasoning and scientific deductions; however our friend is tormented by his human emotions which he struggles to maintain with his strict Vulcan disciplines. Mr Spock is only half Vulcan and from time to time his inner conflicts do get the better of him. Dr Leonard H. McCoy never lets him get away with such outbursts and always reminds him of his human half.

However Spock's legendary cool calm "inhumanness" as Dr McCoy describes him is remarkable. When interrogated Spock will explain using well organized logic that the circumstances were so hopeless that the only justifiable course of action was the act of a desperate man. Logical decision logically arrived at.

You can image my delight when I discovered Stuart Patrick. He’s also a believer in logic, order and theory. He’s also a computer geek just like our pal Mr Spock! Stu has his own problems too; he’s misunderstood, ahead of his curve and frightened. But what’s he frightened of? The end of the world, killer cyborgs, or aliens from outer space or maybe it’s the No 1 rule on Kirill’s list. Never open the box.

Here is a man whose pain runs deep. His name is Kirill. Look deep into those tortured eyes. Behind those eyes lies a secret message. Remember Sybok from Star Trek V? Picture this scenario. A vulchie guy like Sybok with telepathy has the powers to free peoples tortured minds from purgatory. Let’s call him Carlos. He encounters Kirill in his underground chamber of horrors. Carlos advances towards an astonished Kirill who’s locking out his computer database with an unbreakable encryption code.

"Who are you?" demands Kirill who had until now, remained hidden from the evil chaos sweeping the world above.

"Do not fear me,’ says the vulcan calmly. "I am Carlos. Each man hides a secret pain. I can read your thoughts. You carry a heavy burden. Share your message with me and gain strength from the experience."

"Never, stay the hell away from me," cries Kirill reaching for his gun.

But the vulcan is persistent "Listen to me friend, each man hides a secret pain. Share your message with me and I will free your mind."

The stars are not on Kirill’s side and the situation is grim but stay alive he must for the fate of all humanity may depend upon him. Living in constant fear of discovery takes its toll on the human body but it can be good too. It keeps the senses sharp.

"I don’t believe you. You’re one of them aren’t you?" yells Kirill frantically.

Carlos holds out his hand in friendship. "Who do you think I am?"

Kirill follows a set of rules which have guaranteed his survival so far. He is unconvinced by the man’s monkey tricks and decides enough is enough.

"I don’t know how you got in here assassin but stop right where you are." He pulls out his gun. A flood of emotions overwhelms the scientist making Kirill’s trigger finger really jittery. The gravity of his situation is beginning to dawn on him, if this guy found him, it wouldn’t be long before the enemy discovered his den.

Carlos laughs. "What you fear is the unknown....."

"Spare me the double talk." says Kirill cutting him off. Suddenly a loud metallic noise reverberates throughout the room. The sound is unmistakable. Kirill smiles for the first time. “Listen to me assassin. I will feel no remorse over your death.” Carlo’s green eyes begin to glow venomously.

Where does Vivienne Villars fit into all of this?

View episodes 1 and 2 on Kirill Uncovered. Episode 3 is due out on Monday 10th November.

Live long and Prosper Trekkies, Niners and Trekkers.
