The Right Timing – A sci-fi short by Chris Jones

The Right Timing

“That’s my father!” Captain Dane Briggs said as he stared into the time travel vortex. Dane did not realize he was about to become part of his father’s famous space battle.

…a third warship hovering down from above struck Dane as odd.
“That’s… not how the story went.” Dane thought.

Starship Captain Dane Briggs finds himself back in time 30 years, on his father’s ship during a now famous battle in which his father was victorious, but something was not right here, and it wasn’t the fact that he himself was ‘out of time’ on his father’s ship.

..Is my being here, back in time, somehow causing the change?” Dane thought as he faked like he was doing his job..

..he only had a short amount of time before his father would enact his original plan and get them all killed..

Sci-Fi Short Story close to release

The Right Timing

Updating this post I’d like to say that the short story is close to release.

I’m quite proud of this.

Here is a small blurb from it.

“What Just Happened? Just then the intercom in the Captain’s quarters beeped. Dane responded with “Briggs here, what is it?” His First officer, second in command, came on and said, Happy Birthday, Sir. The Crew would like to wish you a Happy Birthday in person. There’s a cake with your name on it in the lounge”.

Watch for updates here.

Let’s Make a Game

Chris Jones Gaming

Chris Jones Gaming was founded in Late 2006 by Chris Jones and Mindwipe. Chris Jones had been a well known member of the Star Trek Gaming Community for a number of years, modding games in the Starfleet Command series and 2002’s Star Trek: Bridge Commander.

It wasn’t long before Modders who’d known him in the past joined Chris Jones Gaming and began work on the Ultimate Universe Mod for 2006’s Star Trek: Legacy.

The team grew to a respectable size and the Ultimate Universe Demo was released just four months later. Over the next four years, the Ultimate Universe Mod and Chris Jones Gaming continued to grow, releasing expansion packs to the mod in between the feature installs, which were named Ultimate Universe Version 1.0 and Ultimate Universe Version 2...

We are going to make a game.

Heading up The Ultimate Universe Mod starting in 2007 was a fantastic experience, and I believe it to be the time right to create something brand new.

There’ll be more on this as it progresses.
