Ladies and gentlemen, as promised, the cover for Hecate, the upcoming Serengeti prequel. Whaddaya think? Seriously, whaddaya think??!!
Oh, and in case you missed it before, here's the back cover blurb to let you know what the story's all about:
Black Ops—the intelligence arm of the Meridian Alliance Fleet. Black Ops came calling with an offer Henricksen couldn’t refuse: a ship—an entire squadron of ships, actually—and crew to command. A chance to get back to the stars.
Too bad he didn’t ask more questions before accepting the assignment. Too bad no one told him just how hinky this particular skunkworks project was.
They call the ship the RV-N: Reconnaissance Vessel - Non-combat, Raven for short. A stealth ship—fast, and maneuverable, and brutal as hell. On the surface, Henricksen's assignment seems simple: train his crew, run the RV-Ns through their paces, get the ships certified for mission operations and job done. But an accident in training reveals a fatal design flaw in the Raven, and when an undercover operative steals classified information from a Black Ops facility, the Fleet Brass cancels the tests completely, rushing the faulty ships and their half-trained crew into live operations. On a mission to recover the Fleet’s lost secrets.
Out of time and out of options, Henricksen has no choice but to launch his squadron. But a ghost from his past makes him question everything—the ships, their AI, the entirety of this mission, right down to the secrets he and his crew are supposed to recover.
You'd be surprised how hard it is to pick a movie for these reviews. I mean, there are so many to choose from and how is a girl to decide? Well, in this case, I cheated. I went back and forth, and round and round, before eventually settling on reviewing a Van Damme movie--c'mon! They're classic! How could I not?--but even then, I was still left with a whole bunch of choices. I mean, it's Van Damme! Every movie he did was awesomely bad!
You see my dilemma.
So, how did I resolve this little issue, you ask? Well, in a fit of brilliance, I outsourced the decision and asked Twitter. And that, my friends, is how I came to rewatch and review that nugget of nuggety sci-fi goodness, Timecop, staring the one and only Kicks Van Damme.
