The Encounter
Copyright (c) 2007

A screenplay has been written for this one

A large Galactic Empire, for centuries, has known of our existence. We were of little interest to them until something happened in Earth's solar system to attract them back.
A small tear in the fabric of space formed a portal to the past. They used this natural phenomenon to observe Earth through time. Now another species is looking at Earth to establish a foothold along the Empire's frontier.
Because of their long distance, but somewhat personal attachment to human kind, the Chancellor of the Empire has sent an envoy, his daughter, to coordinate the events required to make contact.
As with all heads of state, her father has enemies. Circumstance brings her and a human named Lawrence Casey together and plunges them into Earth's past just ahead of a band of mercenaries sent to deliver her to her father's enemies.
The year is eighteen seventy-five. The place is Wyoming. Our time travelers land in the middle of a range war between the mountain and valley ranchers. Taking sides sets in motion future events that lead to the destruction of a third of Earth's population.
There is a chance to fix it if they can avoid capture by the mercenaries or death at the hands of the valley ranchers.
This action/adventure story blends science fiction with the feel of a good western and a story of discovery between two very, very different people.
