A Chunk of SciFi – 2.10 – Wild Space [Location]

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.10 – Wild Space [Location]

“Wild Space? Yeah, I’ve been there. Well, been close to it, never across the border. It’s a weird bit of the universe. Like someone took the rules of nature and decided they would be, well not guidelines, but more like suggestions…”

Wild Space is the common name given to sector EGH-37. It goes by other names; Fractal Space, Choas Zone, Satans Eye and much more. Every spacefaring culture has encountered it or decides to try and explore it. Many do not return. Within this zone, the rules of reality hare mere suggestions.

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.09 – Singularity Rider

Their challenge was simple...

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.08 EngTech Body Spray [Item]

A Chunk of SciFi – 2.08 EngTech Body Spray

“Yes to us that smells weird and musky, but to them, it’s the sweetest aroma…now freshen up, they’ll be here soon”
Moments before the signing of a peace treaty

[No image with this post as I couldn’t find one I liked and could use without it looking like an advert for body sprays]

When humanity first stepped into the galactic stage, there were concerns. What about diseases, culture shock or being outclassed in many technological fields. These were expected and prepared for. What was not prepared for was the assault on our olfactory sense – or, to put it another way…the smell. Every species had their own aroma, from what appears to us to be lilac and vanilla for one, with another species, although incredibly friendly, smelt like rancid meat...
