Insert Taidan Title

I was half expecting that the metro station access would be guarded by military grade turret installations but as it turns out bullets are still more expensive than thick metal bars. To get on the metro you must enter a little metal cage and present method of paying for the fare.   Looking at the […]

Where the Taidan things are.

The Police Chief’s Hologram sizzled trying to keep cohesion as the airlock replaced the poison with breathable air. The glare on his face conveyed both his ignorance of the law and his inability to work with the anonymity features of his Holo-avatar.   He disappeared without another word. The other side of the airlock hissed […]

Something something Taidan

It took me a few minutes to get into Hiigara’s sphere of influence, bending space within a solar system has been tested since it was invented with no obvious issues. Often the gravity well of a solar mass offsets any disruption, however the gateways between systems are kept well away from any planetary body just […]

I dunno, A Taidan thing

Hyperspace transit isn’t the only way to travel. Obviously I could have just as easily fired up my own hyperspace drive to fly to the Taidan system. It just would have taken me a few months even with the fastest drive on the market.   Top speed for a hyperspace drive is relative in the […]

Space police in space

They say that fifty percent of all humans are trapped in the Matrix. Not trapped in the, they can’t get out, kind of way. Just in the, they don’t want to leave, kind of way. The Matrix is virtual world, they say it was named from an old movie but it’s really from something even […]

Low Dopamine

“What am I doing here?” Charlie asked himself. The driver couldn’t hear him and had stated as much when she picked him up. There was supposed to be a phone call coming through to him that was apparently classified. The driver didn’t appear to be military but something about her demeanor made Charlie both fear […]

The wizard of Coz

I always loved taking the subway, the cool clean Oz of the recyclers, the whooshing sound of the water in and out of the airlock at each station. I haven’t been on one since I was a child. My mother worked at the government building in the centre of the city, far from the Agropolis […]

The future is all long hallways

The city’s police department took up one of the largest buildings in the city, not including the housing Agropolises. It doubled as a civil defence base with the firepower of a capital class ship. Capable of lifting off the ground and leaving the atmosphere in the event of planetary emergency. Unlike other buildings, which had […]

I love a rainy night

This is kind of a continuation of ‘Taidan for fear’ so if you haven’t read that one, I suggest you go back and do that. Nova turned away from me, giving away the truth of her appearance. She became a flurry of random pixels, a ‘snow crash’ was what I’ve heard some people call it. […]
