Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday!

*Blog is a work in progress--the template I like didn't work, grrr.*


This week I have another snippet from Refugees On Urloon

 
“Isn’t that a First World Planet? I remember learning something about Urloon in first school,” another crew member said.
A com tech’s finger glided over the com board. “Yes. Urloon. Settled by first wave Terran settlers but was left isolated for centuries while Terra fought the Terran Civil War. Water… Wow! Water-adapted humans live in domes in the warm seas. They have developed their procedure down to the  DNA level so that their young are born  ready to live in the sea.”

  1. Good snippet, though might want to watch the repetitive words and other editing (unless this is still draft material, in which case, carry on).

  7. Well, they say humans come from the sea, why shouldn't they evolve to go back to it?

    Good snippet. I like your concept.

  8. Watch the spelling! Bear young, not bare. But the idea is good.
