Alpha Seven: The Silica Incident

Alpha Seven: The Silica Incident


Category: Entertainment   Fiction  
Language: English
Author: Clifford Woods
A short Science Fiction tale about an impossibility and the investigation into it. Outer space. Other planets and an interesting Artificial Intelligence. Sample of the Book: "His personal Anti Grav Unit was acting up again for the third time this month and he was not pleased. Just back from searching the Rocklands for evidence of reported Silica migration, it had been necessary for him to repair his AGP unit twice due to dust in its most sensitive parts. It was time to trade it in for a newer model. Taurant Anderson, six feet three inches tall with a rugged but handsome face and a lean muscular body with an adventurous and prankish attitude toward life, was considered "The" Silica expert on 23rd century Earth. It had started off as a hobby in his school years and his insatiable curiosity lead him into the most extensive study of the formation, structure and later the function of sand and rocks, ever done. The profession did not pay particularly well, but he enjoyed his work and was fairly well off. His lifestyle could be considered modest by some, but he was more concerned with how much fun he was having. When he was not out exploring some far off region of the planet, he enjoyed his quiet life in his subterranean complex with his computer and its sophisticated interplanetary links. As a matter of fact he was not really interested in repairing his AGP Unit, at this particular moment, at all. He was actually thinking of the communications and mail that was waiting for him in his computer database. There was a lot to catch up on. With a casual shrug, he stored the unit in his utility closet and headed for the lounge. 'I'll get to you later' he thought as he descended the stairs to his den. The closer he got to his computer the more excited he became. He was eager to find out what was happening on the various planets he was in communication with. At last count he was accessing some two hundred news bases and was inter-linked with seventy-three planets in this sector of the galaxy. Taurant walked up to the smooth titanium security door of his den and entered the seven digit manual code and said 'Access T. Anderson Bravo Delta Two'. The security computer matched the voiceprint of his vocal access code with the manual code and satisfied, opened the door. He entered, said 'lights' and sat at the central console of his interplanetary link and activated the computer as the den flooded with lights."
