“Red Dots” JUST RELEASED NEW SCI-FI SHORT STORY
Deep Space One was sent on a one-way mission to save the people of Earth. Their mission was to find a new home for the survivors of the dying planet Earth. They trusted each other and the importance of their mission. What they found out en route was not expected and the information they learned changed everything for them and the people they left behind.
Ray was born in New Hampshire, received his Bachelors of Science in Aeronautical Engineering from Arizona State University, and now retired from an influential, multi-decade career in aerospace,
Ray realized there was a niche that was calling him as he began to write deeper characters, create more sophisticated stories and realistic situations for Sci-Fi fans to relate to.
Initially attracted to heroic characters with powerful weapons taking on hundreds of aliens, Ray began his literary career with a desire to extrapolate Sci-Fi stories with a touch of everyday reality that most of us experience in work and our everyday lives.
His literary work is thoughtfully enriched by his decade long experience in the US Air Force where he flew C-130s on missions to 27 countries, and T-38s while training the best pilots in the world, as well as the first female US Air Force pilots.
During his 28 years at Northrup Grumman, Ray worked on some of the most top-secret military aircraft projects in the world including the F-23, F-35, B-2, Global Hawk and many more that can’t be named.
He is grateful to his wife, Charlene and his two daughters, for her support on this new journey.
Other Sci-Fi authors have used a scenario where a crew on a long flight is overcome by technology. I liked the concept, but I wanted a twist. I blended the story with typical human nature and a little surprise. I hope that you like it.
This story has been in my “Projects in Work Folder” for a long time. I thought the basic story was interesting, although it has been used by other authors. I wanted to find a twist, and it took a while, but I think I found a good one.
