...Masqua, I'd say the experiment has been a success so far!

And look at the guinea pigs involved, cage-crazy and wild-eyed!!!

Way cool - thanks again to Masqua for ‘starting’ this whole thing!
And of course to the writers for continuing.
Sounds silly - but thanks most to the characters.
Yeah, they’re real.

Sorry we're taking so long to fall in on you but... The two are still getting to know each other all over again. But they'll be there soon - maybe tomorrow!

By the way - who has Sslar?
Where might she be?
I remember she was on a transport rig - but from there?

Eeek! She was right there in front of my face - I'll add a link for reference.


Good day ya'll!

Looks like they're going to have to drop off BIAD Jr. on the doorstep like a foundling!

I just wonder how BIAD would handle THAT?

Well! Gears seem to be cranking again now, guys!!!
Rough hiatus.

Hope all of you are well.

I suppose the question is...
do we look to BIAD or Neno to breast-feed the youngster?

Answers on a postcard please.

oH my. THAT was a visual I did not need in my head. I haven't even finished my first cup of tea!

Cool read for a Sunday afternoon. Great to see things up and running again.

So Neno - you've got Sslar and Newman - that's great news.

Let me go back and re-read what you've all posted, think on it a bit and go from there.

Oh and Neno if you find Silo between now and whenever? Watch out. I've a feeling once she's freed from those vines she's going to take it out on the first thing she can - her 'savior' or no!

Hi all, sorry I have been shirking here....
I'm starting to feel the flow again based on BIAD's brilliant posts ... but I don't know what happened to Wild, or quite how it all fits in yet.

Any suggestions? Anyone?
Think of you all fondly and often!!

I am interested in your new direction with the vines and Allena, silo....watching for more info...
I'm still here, just in 'listening' mode...

BIAD, just re-reading the sequence from the 6th and 7th....we've hit a couple of tumblers on my locked brain, but it still needs picking!!


looks very intriguing. I'm thinking Wild is going to be whisked away to Avalon. Perhaps she is Nimue?? Now I have to review Avalonian legend. I know Nimue was Merlin's daughter by - who was it? Morgaine? Gha, I have to go back and look again. Maybe even read The Mists of Avalon again, which would be fine, but take me a week or two...

Hi Hi -
So Newman's with Neno and Sslar and Silo's out there somewhere in the wilds of the planet with a band of? We'll, we're not sure yet, but she's out there. I should have another post up in a day or two explaining with who and where she is. Posts are written but I have to sit on them for a day before editing.

I was going to suggest Wild meets up with Silo - then I read your next post about going to Avalon. Have a kicker there!

The other thing about the vines - etc.

We’ve all heard about how big and bad Neno’s planet it - but we’ve not really seen an evidence of it.
I’m not going to go all out and start up mammoth monsters and plagues etc - it’s not my planet - and I don’t feel comfortable writing about it in a grandiose way. But vines? They’re little. Not quite harmless but little and easily remedied so that’s not too drastic an addition.

Ready to post but waiting for some news back from questions I threw at Neno.
Basically I'm still needing some info on the planet before I go farther.
Hope you are all having a great Spring. Hope to see you back soon.

How... odd.

My son clued me in to a new movie that's coming to theaters at the end of this month. It's called "After Earth", and has Will Smith and his son in the leads.

It looks to me, from the trailers on the internet, to be a pretty straightforward retelling of the story of neno's crash on Khalamzadar - right down to the fact that every living thing there wants to eat you. The only real difference I can see is that "Khalamzadar" has been changed to "Earth", but a thousand years in the future after mankind has left the Earth, and everything on Earth has evolved to want to kill humans.

Other than that, pretty much the same story. Did NOT see any Uktena's in the trailer, though.

There DOES appear to be some big assed cats with really long teeth. *cough, cough*Sslar*cough, cough*.

I've not watched ANY of M Night Shaymalan's recent work, because I thought his first 2 or 3 movies were completely dismal. Did not like them nor care for his style at all. I hear that he's improved over time - I dunno. However, you can bet whatever you hold dear I'm going to be going and checking THIS one out.


They really ought to be sending a check, I tell ya! *grumble grumble grumble*

Heres the trailer - you decide.

OH! Any lavender (or 'Violet') haired chickies in this flick?
I want a check too, lol.
And to think Silo's just about to be dragged off Neno's planet. Hmmm, gives me something to think about.

Hope all is well with you and yours - and all the others here on the Opera!

Cripes-a-mighty I should a watched that trailer before responding to your post.


When he says 'this is earth' - I‘m like - LET‘S GO BABY! Wow!

IA lot of my reaction comes from - I still thought that's what your planet was. Earth.
I know it has a different name and isn't even close (relatively) to Earth - but I still have it stuck in my head Neno's planet is a 'type' of Earth, maybe that‘s a better way to put it.

And yeah - that was Sslar. Those big butt baboons would so have to go though.

Hmmmm, maybe Silo will stick around Neno's planet for a bit after all.

Yeah. Khalamzadar is a "type" of Earth, but of a more primitive sort - or more advanced, depending on your perspective. It's hotter on average, has a thicker atmosphere, and is covered in jungle - the REAL result of "global warming" - desertification doesn't merge well with increased temperature, which increases humidity. Think of Earth during the Carboniferous. Increased temperatures and a four to eight fold increase in carbon dioxide caused jungles to pretty much eat the entire planet. Those jungles are why we have coal today. Where I live now was at the equator then, covered in jungle, with an average temperature of 104 degrees farenheit. Sometimes a little hotter, sometimes a little cooler, but right around that on average. The overall temperature of Earth was 14 degrees (F) hotter then than it is now.

We had centipedes here 6 to 8 feet long (arthropleurids), giant salamander looking things everywhere (including some salamanders that looked just like snakes now), and BIG bugs - foot long cockroaches and dragon flies almost 3 feet from wingtip to wingtip (meganeura). 3 foot long scorpions. Nice jungle we had here. Good eatin'.

When Earth started COOLING, during the Permian, was when deserts started spreading. Cooling precipitates humidity out of the air, puts it back into oceans, and the resulting dryness spreads deserts. I have NO fear of famine from "global warming" - it makes plants grow better, not worse. Living on a coastline, or below about 60m/200 feet elevation, could get a bit dicey, though. around half of the current world population lives within 50 miles of a coastline, and that's why they get their panties in a bunch over global warming.

Like Earth now, Khalamzadar had a prior civilization that has now vanished, leaving only ruins and things that want to eat you. On K4, it was a zombie apocalypse that ended civilization. Shaymalan apparently wants to make a political statement about global warming, so THAT is what ends civilization on his Earth, and drives mankind out to the stars, as I understand it.

The sun for K4 is slightly hotter than our sun to begin with - G0V there as opposed to G2V here. It's around 40 light years away from Earth, towards the Ophiuchi constellation. The star I picked for it is a real star, and actually exists, but it has no name now, just a number.

The civilization that existed before on K4 are the ones who named it "Khalamzadar".

Those baboons - they look like good eatin' to neno!
