Earth Search 1003

Hello, as autumn really starts impacting on the northern hemisphere and days are shortening noticably and tempertures drop, once again the time has come for humans to shine and warm their surroundings, automation will never be able to replace that. The Japanese might be clever at building demurely smiling female robots, but all that proves is the level of fake respect they have been giving and getting in their 'emotionally empty' society. It should hardly come as a surprise that it has the highest suicide rate in the world, on the otherhand they do respect their elderly consequently Japanese live longest or maybe thats because of all the fish and whale they comsume, likely a combination of the two. Oops drifted off a little here because this audioseries is all about the search for home, even if they haven't got a clue as to what it really means ..home..Frank Zappa told us once under the moniker of Joe...Home Is, Where The Heart Is...very poetic..

The Setting

Some years before the story opens, the huge Earth starship Challenger, on a mission to find Earth-like planets for colonization, encountered a meteoroid shower that killed all of the adult crew and seriously damaged the ship. The only human survivors were four babies - two boys, Telson and Darv, and two girls, Sharna and Astra.The four have been raised from childhood by androids and tutored by two disembodied voices called Angel One and Angel Two. Most of the humans believe the voices are real angels, but Darv is more suspicious and believes they are actually computers.

Darv is correct. The Angels are the Challenger's ancillary control computers. Due to a fault in their design they have become megalomaniacal and want to return to Earth and rule it. It was they who deliberately manoeuvred the Challenger into the path of the meteoroids and shut off the ship's defences. Unfortunately for them, they underestimated the amount of damage that would result, not only to the ship but themselves. As a result they have lost an unknown amount of potentially vital information about the nature of space and time.....

The starship Challenger has returned home and the crew have discovered the Earth has vanished and been replaced by the moon, not only that they find their lives in peril from a once benign force.
