COSMIC GENTEN OVERVIEW

Allow me to give you a little overview of the setting of my new space opera book, Cosmic Genten, now that it is out. The story takes place in the year 3789 A.D. where humanity has colonized most of known space. Since space travel was invented, there were several technological innovations over the years. For instance, there are robots working in every household and business. Another example involves terraforming, which is how humanity was able to colonize so many planets. A third example involves vaccinations that allow colonists to survive deep space travel. The vaccinations came with a couple of side effects. Even though they survived deep space travel, some of the colonists underwent several mutations that turn them into humanoid beings that range from being reptilian, bird-like, and so on. Another side effect of the vaccinations results in ten percent of the population developing psychic powers. Over time, these psychics get conscripted into a military law enforcement program known as the Bushi. The word “Bushi” is Japanese for “warrior” and refers to samurai who follow the code of bushido. Eventually, some Bushi refuse to become tools of the government and desert in order to become warlords in the criminal underworld. These rogue Bushi are referred to as Ronin, which refers to samurai who have no master. Eventually, the Ronin unite with ambitions to conquer known space and so they go to war with the interstellar government known as the Consulate. Now, the story of Cosmic Genten revolves around a battle over a strategically important star system. As this battle commences, all kinds of characters will be fighting over this star system from pirates, smugglers, militia, psychic warriors, robots, and even civilians.

The main characters are in a race against time and one of the fleets is in disarray. Overall, this chapter will be an adrenaline-filled thrill ride.

Now, the aftermath of the battle is about to unfold.
