      INTRODUCTION / CONCEPT / BACK STORY FOR  SEASTAR 5 INVADERS FROM THE ABYSS

 

 

  COPYWRITE OCTOBER 2012 RICHARD DIXON ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

 

 

Many miles deep in the oceans ot tomorrow.......where sunlight of the surface world of our Earth never reaches...a secret war is in progress.......so secret that few people on the land know of  what is being kept from them of Earth's true history of mankind.

 

The dark world of the abyss , where large sea creatures of legend roam through the depths , alien deep sea races , descendents from the ancient continent of Mu and Lemuria plan to conquer the surface of our planet......to make it part of their world .

 

  Few people have seen the sea people ,  but the threat from below is real .

 

It has existed for a long time throughout history as two intelligent races of man evolved on this world. One on the surface of  the planet and the other beneath the oceans . Neither race having contact with the other's existance , with only brief encounters happening between the two during the passage of time .

 

In the 21st Century our explorations into the underwater realm go ever deeper . We seek out more riches on the continental shelves and beyond , the balance of the ocean world is slowly being changed .

 

Our search into this deep world which we no little about , is now looked upon by our neighbours below the seas as a threat to their existance .

The growing threat of conflict between different worlds comes nearer by the day .

 

 

In the modern world the first knowledge we may not be alone came in the late nineteen thirties with a crash in Freiburg , Germany of a craft of unknown origin .

A disc shaped machine with strange markings .

With more of these machines being seen in the sky through out the years of the forties , people began to ask questions .

 

The crash at Roswell  in 1947 made the United States take the view that the truth should be hidden from the public . A cover story was concieved and given to the press that a secret weather balloon system was responsible for the incident near the desert town .

 

Stories of flying saucers and encounters with alien beings were everywhere in the popular press . Scientists on orders from the Governments of the world dismissed the news reports . They gave any explanation they could to explain away these encounters as pure imagination in the minds of the individuals who had spoken out to the press .

 

Operation Cover Up was in full swing everywhere a sighting occured , the real truth of what was out there would be  hidden at every turn , carefully managed by secret Government Agencies around the world at all times .

Our first true indication of the high technology we were dealing with took place in 1963 off Puerto Rico when the U S Navy Aircraft Carrier WASP on navy exercises received a demonstration of ocean power from the sea people .

A large unknown underwater craft was detected and tracked for several days by the US Carrier at a depth of 27,000 feet at a speed of 150 knots.......a speed three times faster then any known submarine of the time.

 

 It  was the start of more sightings of strange craft in and out of the oceans by the navies of the world . Disc shaped machines with incredible displays of speed and changes of direction capabilities in flight that our present military craft could not match .

 

A military force , Operation Paper Clip sailed south from the United States into the Southern Ocean . It was suddenly recalled after a large force of flying saucers gave an example of their fire power and stopped the navy ships off Antarctica .

 

We finally  accepted that we are not alone on this planet and that some form of intelligent life exists beneath the waves and land areas of the Earth.

 

With the number of  missing ships growing , oil platforms sinking in calm seas , remote island villages being attacked from the sea by unknown forces.....something has to be done.

 

The Leaders of the World meet in secret and it is decided to set up an international underwater defense force to protect our shores. The force will operate in secret as long as possible until we are sure what we are dealing with before making any public information available.

 

MIDAS...The Marine International Department for Aquanaut Sciences in Hawaii will be appointed to be the public face for the secret elite protection force which will patrol the undersea world and guard our deep ocean frontier .  

All information on the problem beneath  the oceans will be controlled by Agency Director , Ben Franklin . 

He appoints U S Navy Admiral J P Henry to take charge and form a special combat unit , the Marine Aquanaut Rangers Command for this new underwater frontier force .

 

Admiral Henry decides to base his new unit at Omelek Island , an existing U S Navy Test Centre  in the Kwajalein Atoll , part of the  Marshall Islands Group in the Pacific Ocean .

 

Under a veil of secrecy an underground complex is slowly built on the island . With no surface activity to be seen of what is being constructed below . The new base , STAR KEY begins to grow and spread beneath Omelek island , out into the Pacific on the sea bed .

 

On the island's surface lies the new Lavelle Marine Laboratory . This will be the surface cover and above ground entrance to the underground base below .

 

The Admiral  begins his search for an international group of dedicated individuals to be trained over a period of time to pilot a new fleet of super submarines .

 

A fleet of new dynamic , advanced supersonic speed capable - supercavitation atomic powered submarines will be built to deploy anywhere in the underwater realm to counter any aggression from beneath the sea .

 

 The SEASTARS , six hundred feet long , the biggest submarines ever built by man......Carrier Battle Cruisers will be our defence to protect the surface world .

 

  The fight back to secure our future existance has begun.

 

 

 

 

Planet Earth.....our land and oceans , home in this Universe for the Human Race .

 

Our history covers many years and people in different countries , over continents we all know .

 

But beneath our feet another history has existed on this world for thousands of centuries .

A secret world history sometimes only known or recorded in myths and legends throughout time .

 

The greatest secret of man's existance is that he may not be the only human species on this world .

What if we are not alone , that two races of man have co-existed for centuries , with one common ancestor .

One on the surface lands , the other beneath the sea , in caverns of the underworld of legends .

 

Both brothers of man having only brief contact and knowledge of each others life throughout the years .

 

A secret knowledge closely guarded and past down through individuals in Governments the world over , kept from us so we know only one history of Earth .

 

With close encounters with the sea people below increasing , their existance is slowly being revealed .

 

Now an ancient race from the stars is starting the return to the earth , to reclaim its lands beneath the surface and oceans they left millennia ago .

 

 The Dragon Lords of Lemuria have returned and the balance of power on this world may soon be changed for ever .

 

 One man will soon see the truth and find his destiny in manknd's greatest secret .

 

Matthew Adams , former Navy Officer and now a marine salvage adventurer will begin a fishing trip off Hawaii that will change his life for ever .

He will make a close encounter with a member of one of the underwater races that inhabit the seas of the Earth .

Learning of the threat to our existance from the Invaders from the Abyss .

 

 

 

 

 

FRAME 9

"Hi Sammy " said Matthew Adams as he dismounted from his motor bike at the entrance of the Boat Yard .

" Very good Matt " replied his old friend .

 

" The Sea Mist is ready for you , new parts arrived yesterday and I've fitted and tested them . Everythings good for your trip " said Sammy .

FRAME 10

 

" It's been a while since I took her out  . Been diving off California the last few weeks and got back a few days ago " said Matthew Adams .

 

"Have you seen your old man since you got back " said Sammy . " No , our paths have not crossed yet , hopefully catch up with him tomorrow " said Matthew Adams .

       "How the new parts working , I hope she's quicker than the last time I ventured out " said Matthew .

 

" You will notice a quicker power surge when you open up the throttles , watch your gauges for any signs of over heating . Should be okay , performance on test gave no problems  " said Sammy .

FRAME 11

        " The weather is good for tonight Matt , with calm seas , excellent for fishing my friend " said Sammy .

FRAME 12                                           

   Matthew Adams steps aboard his power boat , the SEA MIST .

"Its good to be back Sammy"

"I should return early morning , I'll contact the Coast Watch Tower at Pearl with my route and position" he says to Sammy standing on the jetty .

FRAME 13                  

Sammy takes the ropes off  the boat's anchorage ropes as Matt Adams starts the engines.

FRAME 14                                       

   The boat slowly leaves the jetty as Sammy waves goodbye ." See you in the morning Matt "says Sammy as the sleek black power boat leaves the mooring .

FRAME 15

Moving into deeper water in the after glow of sunset . The boat is off the north of the island of Oahu , Matthew Adams picks up his radio mike and calls Marine Coast Watch . "SEA MIST to Coast Watch Matthew Adams calling , over ".

 

" Coast Watch Tower , Pearl Harbour , receiving you Sea Mist . Go a head with transmission . " said the voice of the Marine Tower radio operator . .

FRAME 16

" Sea Mist on fishing trip off North Coast , sector 4 , should be here for four to five hours , over " said Matthew Adams.

 

" Roger and copy that Sea Mist , have a good fishing night , Coast Watch standing by and out " said the radio operator .

 

                               "Sea Mist over and out " as Matthew Adams ends his radio call .

FRAME 17

Night falls as Matthew Adams settles down on his boat for a night's fishing using a line and makeshift rod . 

                 Little did he know this night will bring a change to his destiny

FRAME 19

     A liitle time passs by and Matthew Adams hears a strange sound in the distance. He stops fishing to listen .

FRAME 20

The sound gets louder , the sea starts to turn a bright green colour around his boat.......larger waves start to move the boat from its postion at anchor . The anchor snaps and the boat starts to sway from side to side .

FRAME 21     

Out of the night a wave with bright lights behind it of an unknown craft appears heading at speed for the Sea Mist .

FRAME 22

The waves get stronger and begin to violently rock the boat as the sea is engulfed in bright green and yellow light . Matthew Adams stand up in the boat and tries to steady himself . A large wave is coming straight for him with an  unknown craft heading for a collision and he can not stop it  . The sound is all around him.

FRAME 23

Crash ! The unknown craft hits the Sea Mist and a large plume of water rises at the rear of his boat . Metal and plastic bits fly into the air as the boat rocks from side to side .

FRAME 24

     Matthew Adams falls to the deck of his boat as it is knocked side ways with the impact from the collision .

FRAME 25

The Sea Mist is being dragged along at speed . Matthew Adams hits his head on the rear bulk head  as the  boat starts a new journey across the sea , pulled along  by the unkown craft .

                                        Slowly he slips down onto the deck and his eyes close .

FRAME 27

   The Sea Mist is beached on a small stretch of sand . Matthew Adams begins to move at the rear of his boat .

FRAME 28

Picking himself up he looks around and feels his head . He begins to think back to the night before and the collision with the unknown craft .

FRAME 29

                       He begins to remember and looks around to see where he has ended up with his boat .

FRAME 30

"This looks like Kauai Island , I must have been dragged miles across the sea in the night . Someone is going to answer for this and the damage to my boat . But where is the other craft ? " said Matthew Adams as he looks around .

FRAME 31

In the trees to his left ,  blue lights flickering in the morning light . He stands up in the boat . "Right someone's over there in that creek . I'm going over there and get some answers " said Matthew Adams as he makes his way into the narrow creek between the trees .

FRAME 32

In the creek he finds a blue coloured craft . Slowly he walks along side and begins to wonder what he has found.

FRAME 33

"This is not from around here . The shape of the  power screw I've not seen anything like it . The markings of strange symbols , their not ours " he said to himself .

FRAME 34

Looking into the open hatch....."Well that just great , nobody at home . But wait ,  the controls on this thing are like nothing I've ever seen . What the devil have I found" said Matthew Adams .

FRAME 35

"Who ever this craft belongs to can't have gone far , certainly I would not leave something like this around ". He said to himself .

FRAME 36

A lone figure slowly moves towards his back as he continues to gaze at the craft's interior ..

FRAME 37

                            The figure gets nearer and begins to raise a weapon of some kind toward him.

FRAME 38

                   The figure is now only feet away from him . The weapon is raised.......

FRAME 39

            The figure strikes .  Into the middle of his back the weapon spins an electrical charge  .

FRAME 40

          Stunned by the electrical charge which zipped through his body Matthew Adams falls to the ground .

FRAME 41

Will he recover ....who is the stranger with the weapon.....and where does the strange craft come from  ....
