“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..

It was time to author a science-fiction short story.
What caused this time travel vortex that seemed to only be in Dane’s Captain’s quarters? Why was he drawn back in time to be with his father?
As an update to this post, this story is now public. It’s called ‘The Right Timing’ – A Father and Son Time Travel story.
