SOLDADU
« on: June 29, 2009, 04:27:45 PM »
Actually, cerita SOLDADU dah lama dah aku pendam kat kepala. So kat sini aku post 1st draft background story dunia SOLDADU ni ngan satu sinopsis cerita SOL yg aku tengah buat sekarang ni.

Aku ingatkan nak keluarkan kat Pekomik antologi tapi aku nak kena rombak sikit cerita ni dulu. Bagi hati aku sedap/puas baru boleh share ngan korang. Kat FB aku ada preview pages yg aku dah buat. Korang boleh tengok kat situ.

So nanti korang boleh refer kat sini utk latarbelakang dunia SOLDADU aku ni bila the actual story keluar nanti.

Thanks.

The SOL era

The world is in energy crisis. The race for innovations and technological superiority has left the earth dry of its natural resources. Not enough energy to power plants, process foods, generate electricity and whatever necessities that required energy. With the banning of nuclear energy in the 21st century, thanks to the space technology and aviation breakthru in the 22nd century, now the world can look for energy not at the sun but looking beyond it, to the stars.

Corporate bodies around the world has been merged by the world bank to form 3 major factions: The Joint Recon Initiatives (JRI) from the Americas, The Allied Energy Recovery Force (AERF) from Europe together with Russia and from Asia The Coalition of Stellar Industrialization (CSI).The 3 factions objective is to explore the designated space to find the new source of energy and managing the entire process and usage of the new energy.

With all the plans laid out, now the task of protecting the envoy was put into question. Comes the private contractors offering their services.  Each factions were given the authority by the United Nation to appoint or form their own security detail to take the responsibility of protecting and assist the space envoy in their exploration for energy. These private contractors are known as SOL.

The 3 SOL organisations are SOLJAR appointed by the JRI, the newly formed SOLDIKAR for the AERF and SOLDADU appointed by the CSI as their private army.The SOLs are private military organisations or contractors that offers services like any standard government army.  The SOLs are cheap, dispensable, in short notice, deployed anywhere without any border jurisdiction.

With the efforts of the 3 factions and decades of what seems to be an unending search at last bear fruit. On the edge of the galaxy , along the designated lines between the factions lies a constellation of planets known as Idora Major. Within these planets grows an extraterrestrial mushroom, Poppers. Poppers are self productive plants by dispersing particles known as Spores. Spore a single-celled form that can be process into crystals. With that crystal the human can generate energy 10 times powerful and 10 times long lasting.

Thus, a new race for colonization of the planets and the harvesting and the production of the spores kicks into gear. Conflicts risen among the factions whom each desire to monopolize the production of spores. The SOLs were thrown against each other which started the civil war known as “The Lost Souls”. The war lasted for 2 years with the intervention of the United Nation and a pact was signed to limit the military capabilities of SOLs to infantry.

Though order was restored in the Idora Major, little that the factions know that their operations was being carefully watched by other alien race. The turning point of the era came when one of the harvest and production colony on Idora 01 was attacked. That was the day the earth stood still. Not knowing how to response, the old question of whether the humans are alone in the universe has been answered. Initiatives to reason with the alien race known as “The Matriach”  a warmongering civilization govern under a queen was failing one after another. None on both side could understand or break the culture and the language barrier thus the human race enters in their first intergalactic war. Unlike the humans, The Matriach seeks the spore to fuel their weapons of war. Backed with the government hardwares the SOLs once again thrown into the frontline, fighting for humanity in an unending conflict for survival.


Sinopsis untuk introduction episode:

The Final Contract

Being a merc or SOLDADU deemed by most as an easy ticket to get enlisted in the “Regiment”, a government own elite infantry detachment. A 5 plus 3 years contract was never a walk in the park for any SOLDADU. But for a SOL First Lieutenant Andrian Mulluk, the last 8 years was just another note in his report. Going in and out of Idora Major, with combat experience in both “The Lost Souls” war and the current intergalactic conflict and some other non-combat related duties that he would rather leave out in his submission to the Regiment enlist department were just another days work as a SOLDADU. And his report is at its end as this is his final year. Mulluk’s final contract as a SOLDADU.

With no end in sight for earth conflict with the alien race “The Matriach”, Mulluk’s hope that he would continue the fight as a Regiment. But not until his contract ends he is still a SOLDADU and this final 3 months is far more excruciating than the last 8 years. Juggling his mind between home and his final tour has become near impossible to manage. Though his body is at the frontline but his mind always wonder about home and about the only person he cares about, his love for his betroth, Yana.

Mulluk’s aware that his duty as a SOLDADU has to be fulfilled, this is his final tour as SOL First Lieutenant Andrian Mulluk. Though the couple of weeks has been quiet but his guts tells him otherwise, some how he knows that something is brewing and it will not be easy as he notes in his letter to Yana.

Just pray for the best he said. Just pray that he will not expires before his contract expires.


For your information, cerita ni dalam BM. Draft ni aku buat dlm english utk memudahkan aku berfikir.

Know that u read it (SOLDADU) first here.

...enjoy!!!!

this reads like an awesome story, macam saga Dune sikit-sikit. lukisan pun gempak (x reti nak komen pasal artwork :p)

cuma nak kepastian, kenapa The Matriarch tu muncul dlm cerita ni? apa motif diorang selain untuk berperang? kalau tak dikembangkan pasal aliens tu jadi mcm agak one-dimensional and anthropocentric.

hanya sekadar pandangan. can't wait for the finished product!
There were two messengers
They had animosity with each other
They were equally powerful in fight
Here are the corpses.

Humans and aliens are alike...they all greedy. Simple as that. Both species are at their end. So they're there out of desperation...a dire act for survival.

Anthropocentric? It is.....SOLDADU is about human race fights for their sorry ass.

There's a line in the story, it says " Ironic isn't it...We're here to fight for the thing that will ensure our survival & future....and it is exactly the same thing that is going to kill us".
(i dont know how it will translate in BM)

Basically, a potrayal of human race in a FUBAR situation.

Can't wait to finish the product.. :)
