SPACE ZOO SAFARI - Sci Fi Adventure

Updated on July 30, 2010

Year 2030...

"Come on kids, the ship is packed." Zabno and Frion were so excited about going to a new place! They could not wait to go on the Safari in space. Zabno had so many questions, "Mom, have you ever been to this place before?" She did not know how to answer this question since things were different now. After the takeover twenty years ago, nothing was ever the same. A lot of people died....so did the forests and a lot of animals too.

Children were sent on ships to other planets and some of them met an early death because they could not be found. Others were lucky enough to have kept their signal patches intact so that their parents could find them. Atleast whatever parents had survived the war. The cyborg population on the planet were able to track their other coded series models by attaching "spider timers" that sort of acted like compasses and signal magnets. The problem was that some of them decided to go out on the outside of the ships to send signals and met their doom from the intense heat and air flushes. They were still considered antiques and were created at the beginning of the war. Some of them made it and were now at the zoo and museums on the new planet.

Cherish Cosmo was a survivor. She knew that her days were numbered and she promised herself that she would take her kids to the Space Safari before it was gone for good. She knew how important it was for Zabno and Frion to see animals or whatever was left in the universe before they joined forces with the new world. A world where machines killed anything that had visions of how the world used to be. Where people would no longer have compassion but just a plan for survival whatever the costs. She spent everything she had in her life savings to protect her son's from dying young. They had already been equipped with the Metro Chip that would secure their survival on the planet many space miles away. Now, they would be able to breathe and adjust to the air, toxic fumes from the river and time machines that will give them their life source energy for many years to come.

Cherish was now broke and sick from a disease she picked up many years ago when she escaped a near death experience. Her husband was killed instantly when the plants around their home started giving out toxic signals and eventually came inside and took his life while he slept. Cherish had gotten away but only after she had been contaminated. She saved her sons and rushed them over to the CyberMet Hospital and spent her life savings to make sure that they would live for atleast another fifty years on the new planet. Even if there were no more "part" humans left there. She succeeded but she was starting to feel like she was going down. it happened little by little in her sleep and while she was in training at the underground mega dune where there were only a few humans left. Then her vision was starting to go and she took the final steps to make sure the boys will not have to worry.

Today was a day that she was waiting for and thought of everything she would say while they were there. She was so happy that one elephant had survived the war even if he lost a leg. No other animals did except for a few monkeys, but they had already been implanted and although they looked normal, the chips were already changing their DNA. But that didn't matter, she would pretend it was like it was when she was a child "way back when." Just for this final trip with her son's she could leave an amazing memory that the chip would never erase. She may save someone from an early death because of this. Right when one of her son's wants to pull the trigger of their killing machine, they may just take that moment to think. One more "part" human is better then none at all. After today she will know she did the best that she could.

When they arrived on the planet and the ship came inside the Tripno building, the boys got out and ran towards the marine building. Cherish worried about what would actually be there after all of the waters and seas killed every bit of marine life there was. Oil spills and then chemicals eventually killed everything and there was nothing left to save or eat. When she arrived there the first thing she noticed was the mechanical fish with their blank dark eyes. Sort of like dead robots swimming along. The boys loved it because they never saw real fish. "Cool!, Zabno yelled. Mom, this is fantastic!" Then they walked over to the robotic jelly fish with electronic lights in them. Cherish thought about the time she was stung by a real one in the ocean a long time ago and started to weep. She longed for everything to be real again, but the world was a different place now.

The most shocking of all was the robotic leopards and bugs. All machine and all made by cyborgs. Nothing real at all anymore. Cherish got a bit depressed but tried to put on a brave face for her children. They both ran back and hugged her and she felt her knees get weak. Her time was coming soon and she needed to make sure everything was in order. "Mom, Frion said. Thank you for bringing us today and doing everything you did for us." She felt her boys slowly changing little by little. The implanted chips were working just in time for her to leave them. There would be no sadness when she left them. This she made sure of when she paid for them to be implanted.

Cherish held them close to her and as she looked around, the monkeys all came to the glass. She has a tear in her eye because she knew they were the last one's left. Her son's would be alone for a long time now. They would have compassion for any survivors that they run into and that had to be enough. She had to believe that. That was all that she could do.

      And so it is written! Seeing what may very well be the future of our Universe - but, a Mother's love for her children prevails - to the end; her end!! BUT, will her love for her children, implanted in their souls, eventually overwhelm the implanted chip for survival by "automation," so to speak, and bring "Mother's Love & Humanity to the planet they are now going to inhabit? How wonderful it would be for them, once again, to be called Human!

      GPAGE, your gift of writing transcends imagination with what may very well be - our reality!! You give us much to think about - how much we have destroyed of our beautiful planet - its inhabitants - !!!! Your wake-up call is CLEAR! You have started to write a significant piece of "Science Fact!" Your love for your children flows deeply through all paragraphs on the page. Hil

      prasetio...thank you so much! I am not a fan of spiders either, but cyborg spiders would be worse!!!!!! ha I hope the world never gets to this place where all animals are extinct. But I have to say, it does not look too far away. I try to get people to support any organization that funds defense funds and wildlife. It is very important. Thanks for stoppin in my good friend. G

      Nice story, my friend. I can't imagine this world fulled with animal cyborgs. Maybe in the future, people will take care of an artificial animal. Like on the pictures above. But for spider, no thanks. I little bit phobia with spider. Good work. As usual, rate this Up. Have a good day!

      Intersting - a world where people have to remember what it is to be human in terms of some very fundamental emotional principles. Not as far fetched as it would seem. Sounds like today and yesterday for some.
