Well, this whole project is quite vast, and more than anything I'm doing it not necessarily meaning for it to come to full fruition, but thinking on how great it would be if even parts of it could be put into action in animation.

I reviewed the first couple of pages and realize now that I really didn't explain much about this whole thing, except the very beginning of the storyline, sooooo... I'll throw some more out here for folks to chew on.

Referring back to the first message that explains the beginning....

"Our hero" finds himself returning to the "dream" when ever he sleeps or sits idle for awhile, undisturbed in his world... Early on he sees a reflection of himself when exploring the space station (called "Project Asteroid"), and sees himself wearing the rather goofy, but all-too-real space suit portrayed as "Corporal Cosmic" in the comic book and strange black-n-white commercial that seems to air itself quite a lot on his television.

Exploring the space station, "our hero" discovers The station is built into an asteroid either orbiting one of the gas giants of our solar system, or within the asteroid belt. It has the appearance of being recently re-activated after decades of abandonment, what with calendar and clock-equipment not yet repaired/reactivatged having been stopped at some point in the 1960s. As the main character finds notes, files, and other clues, he discovers that there really was a Terran Space Force that was established to defend the Earth against alien incursions and invasions.

The main character discovers that his grandfather (recently deceased) was the last survivor from the Terran Space Force, who had managed to start working on re-activating "Project Asteroid", with information indicating that an alien invasion is eminent, and that an alien base dedicated to the invasion is nearly complete, orbiting Earth on the far side of the moon.

Notes, clues and such reveal that mankind has had numerous encounters with life from space over the centuries... "Our hero" discovers that science fiction/fantasy stories such as H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds" really did occur. In fact, that event was the last major attempt at alien invasion, after which the world's nations used the alien technology left behind to create the Terran Space Force in the 1940s. Further, while the "League of Nations" worked together to form a coalition of nations to protect Earth, other nations had their own plans - Nazi Germany, etc.  There are several extremely intriguing and strange storyline ideas tied into Nazi Germany alone.

But why does mankind have no recollection of such things as being real? Well, with the development of radio, and moreso, television, humans have "forgotten" the truth about such things because signals have been broadcast subliminally to brainwash people over time to remember a "different history" (meaning the history we know of today). Subtle influences by alien meddlings have turned humans away from space exploration as it "really" occurred, and efforts to end nuclear weapons, etc., are all part of weakening humankind for the planned invasion.

I forgot one other twist to things is when "our hero" discovers that he is not really physically visiting and exploring the "world of Corporal Cosmic," but is rather having his mind broadcast into an android. Originally, he thinks he is somehow physically in the space station, etc., simply wearing a full-body uniform/costume. One thing that keeps him from trying to remove his helmet, gloves, etc., is that he is made aware of the fact that the space station has no air currently circulating within. Since he cannot see his face through the helmet's faceplate he has no reason to question the possibility of being simply remotely controlling a robot body until he comes upon defunct/broken "bodies" that look like his, but are clearly mechanical constructs of wire and tech. At that point he does figure out a way to open his faceplate while looking at his own reflection, and sees machine-eyes and parts gazing back.

I feel it worth mentioning that I had this idea written into the storyline for this game/movie/whatever over three years past, before I had ever heard of the now-blockbuster hit movie "Avatar."

Those ideas are very good, Arik. =] I see no flaws, or anything that could contradict or something.
The last part on the above post has a lot of possibilities for a 3D animation! When he sees himself in a reflection, it would be awesome. Especially in "3D" 3d. ;)

Ever thought about writing this story? If you weren't able to finish everything in 3D, it would make an awesome book! Or book series. ;)
Although, if you aren't good at writing, then I guess not, huh? :P

I'll keep looking here, can't wait to see more. =]

Already written out in text and outline form, with option for book, series, and video game possibilities being explored over the last couple of years.

alien eyeball... for those wondering, it is all anim8or... the iris is a texture made using anim8or for the ripples and pupil, then rendered, worked a bit in GIMP to fine-tune the edges of the circle... and applied as a texture in anim8or.

oooh yer right! It does! Gotta love the hypnotoad... I had considered making some Futurama things at one point...

Well I have a couple of uses for the eye, one being for being in this storyline as the eye for a race I call the "Blobtonians"... the other for use with a creature I am working on for another thing... if anyone knows what Cthulhu is... well, it's a spin-off of that, a video clip I'm making that ties into my AEWAKENED project.

Anyway, updated and showing the "fleshing out" for the AEwakened version, just to be that way... the green skin (no longer attached) was in object mode, the brown skin in scene mode.
