Flashing Light The First 21 Episodes are pretty much done and locked in place. Flashing Light

  • EPISODE 1 -
    "Episode One"
  • EPISODE 2 -
  • EPISODE 3 -
THREE HOUR PREMIER - Episodes 1, 2 and 3 take place back-to-back, spanning the first Three Days of the Series. Where Episode 1 ends, Episode 2 begins the next morning. Where Episode 2 ends, Episode 3 picks up its next morning. Though not intended to be a Three-Part Episode (Example : Part 2 of 3), they do air back-to-back and are intended to air back-to-back for its premier, possibly edited together for its debut broadcast (only) as a movie length feature, such as Battlestar Galactica's 3 hour series premier in 1978 was. Together, these three episodes introduce the Premise, Setting, main Space Vehicle, and all but 2 of the large cast of Characters.
13 EPISODE STORY ARC - The first 13 episodes occur in the same Solar System in space. While the Series Premier sets up the series premise and the main (human) characters on our space vehicle, the 13 Episode Mini Story-Arc sets up the first batch of (alien) characters out in space that we will be dealing with for a few years. While the aliens are first encountered, the 13 episodes will have us begin exploring the lives of our main human characters onboard.
EPISODE 2 - The first alien race the crew encounters are introduced in Episode 2. It is our "First Contact", and we botch it.

  • EPISODE 4 -

    EPISODE 4 - The second alien race the crew encounters are introduced in Episode 4, along with the last two of the main characters.
    There is a Guest-Star character known only as "Mysterious Man".


  • EPISODE 5 -
    NO Guest-Stars.
  • EPISODE 6 -
    NO Guest-Stars.

"Space got rippled up for a moment, followed by a flash of light. Then the stars shot by and disappeared. Then I got hit on the head."
- A Lieutanant Commander from another Starship, describing to the Chief Engineer what he saw in a previous episode's incident.



  • EPISODE 7 -
    Part One of Two.
  • EPISODE 8 -
    Part Two of Two.

  • EPISODE 9 -

"You can't go down to those planets! There might be aliens down there."
"Well of course there might be aliens down there. They're alien planets. What did you expect to find down there? Amelia Earhart?"
- The Captain to a crewmember, in Episode 9, after he finds out the main Space Vehicle is returning to a previously encountered planet.


"They out gun us. They out speed us. The only thing we can do is run and hide, and we're not very good at that."
- The Lt. Commander to the Captain, in Episode 10, trying to figure out what their next action will be when aliens attack them for the first time.


"How long until we can repair the damage?"
"We can never repair the damage."
- The Lt. Commander to the Captain, in Episode 10, referring to the state of the Main Space Vehicle after their first alien attack.

  • EPISODE 13 -

    EPISODE 13 - Episode 13 brings the end of the 13 Episode Mini Story-Arc to a conclusion.
    NO Guest-Stars.


  • EPISODE 14 -

    THE PILOT EPISODE / FIRST SEASON FINALE - The first complete episode intended to be produced, Episode 14 is a self-contained story, featuring only 2 of the main characters. Budget-wise and quality-wise, the production of Episode 14 is the equivelant of an "Afterschool Special". Based on my past encounters with PBS Executives on the lower local levels, it will shock them to learn that the Pilot Episode of the Science-Fiction Series actually contains no Science-Fiction elements in it at all (because the local PBS people can't see past the Doctor Who Monsters). And yes, the Pilot Episode will also be the First Season Finale.


SECOND SEASON ONWARD:

    Part One of Two.
  • EPISODE 16 -
    Part Two of Two.

"That wasn't Bright. Do you think that was Bright? That wasn't Bright."

    One or Two Guest-Stars.
  • EPISODE 18 -
    Featuring Guest-Stars.

"You're not making him a Yeoman."
"Yes I am. Captain Kirk had a Yeoman and so can I."
- The Captain to the Lt. Commander, in Episode 17, deciding what to do with someone onboard the main Space Vehicle.

    No Guest-Stars.
  • EPISODE 20 -
