DARK MATTER TRANSIT – Synopsis
Away To Travel The Stars
Lurking behind the moon the crew of the giant space ship the QvO is studying the Earth’s surface and, also, recording Earth’s public broadcasting entertainment channels for home consumption when they return to the Ongle System Of Planets.
The crew of the QvO are descendants of Earth people who were captured by the Rap empire from ships of sail on Earth and they were transported to be bred as slaves for the Raps. Eventually, through insurrection the slaves overthrew the Raps and subsumed their empire. Their interest in monitoring the Earth and its flora and fauna is pure nostalgia.
Through an accident of technology and nature a lone Earth man is transported to the QvO. There is no way back and he joins the crew of the ship and becomes involved in their many adventures in space. This includes a secretive defence of the planet Earth against a Rap-Terrabot fleet which is using to possible annihilation of the Earth as bait to bring the Ongle System of planets and their allies of Ambrocognia-Mundi into an unequal contest
Dark matter has no length, no depth, and no width, and it is the only constant in all universes. Dark matter obeys its own physics and does not share them. Travel via dark matter is not as in A through to B because dark matter has no dimensions………..
There is a sequel to the book, too, which has just been released
