Synopsis

Planet X91 the beginning is a sci-fi adventure series.

On board shuttle number one in hyper sleep is Clay Silver 16, Florian Fawkes 15 Josh Quinn 12. They wake five minutes before they crash. The three have to be a team to survive. What dangers will they discover? Will they be rescued? One bad mistake and the newest human colony of three will be extinct. Two questions remain. Who did it and why? Clay, Florian and Josh make a pact to vote on everything do. To guarantee Florian survives her safety is put first. Every move they make has to be planned. The building they landed near turns out to be a spaceship. Reading the ledger on what species of animals were on board the craft the trio uncovers the secret of what had been in the cages. For twenty years the animals have roamed free. Now they are hungry for human blood. Abandoned and alone the three young adults have to fight to survive.

Excerpt:

FIVE YEARS from earth’s orbit found the USS Lock almost halfway to their destination. Overhead lights flickered on, highlighting five hundred cryogenic freezer tubes in a large rectangular shaped room an area the size of four house blocks. There were ten rows of the tubes side by side. Inside each tube, behind the frosted glass a single person lay frozen.

But with the threat of death constantly barreling down on her, and with menacing contestants looming around every obstacle, she realizes the chances of her getting killed are far greater than her chances of surviving and attaining her freedom.

The frosted glass dome on top of one of the freezer tubes slid back. A metre tall cleaner robot near the tube didn’t look up at the noise. His job description; vacuum the entire ship.

Nothing else moved in the ghostly quiet.

A lone figure blinked. He stretched his arms up and slowly lifted himself from the deep freeze of cryogenic sleep. Stepping out of the unit his smile looked slightly crooked.

In silence he moved about the area set aside for the crew. His footsteps were deliberate. He walked past several frozen women crew members, hesitating only long enough to give them a sideways glance before moving along the rows.

The buzz of the cleaner robot coming closer forced the man to stop. He watched it slide past. A red light on the side of the unit signaled it needed to get back to its magnetic compartment to recharge the batteries. In around twenty hours it would start its cleaning duties again

The man walked on.

He changed direction, deciding to march towards the right hand side of the ship designated for the children. The metal shutters protecting the portholes were closed. The figure didn’t slide one open to see the view.

The second freezer tube he stopped at contained a teenager. He unplugged the unit and wheeled it towards the shuttle bay.

He picked out two boys, one twelve; the other sixteen. He knew the female was fifteen. Each person was allocated a number. Hers was 16494. The other two were 27459 and 18450 consecutive. He wheeled them into maintenance shuttle number one. He could have picked any one of the small twenty ships, but he didn’t want to waste time. The closest one would be suitable for what he needed. The man silently walked out of the air lock, pushing a button to close the hatch. Wearing a satisfied smirk he walked back to his freezer unit, changed the date to correspond with the other five hundred freezer tubes then slipped back inside. He watched the frosted glass dome close. He closed his eyes and went back to a frozen sleep.
