COSMIC SWAN
Sebastian Lopez, contributor

Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

Synopsis of Cosmic Swan The COSMIC SWAN, based on the science-fiction novel of the same name, can be a stand-alone epic film or part of a film series in the tradition of action-packed science fiction stories of the future such as Star Wars and Star Trek. In the story, an intrepid geologist investigating earthquakes in the Himalayas discovers devotees of a cult led by a gorgeous priestess who says the earthquakes are caused by the birth of a great being. As a scientist and he insists they are caused by some natural phenomenon. Which story is right? Thus hatches the adventure. As the story begins, a colossal bird-like flying planet is born from below a holy mountain, but his birth triggers powerful earthquakes that terrorize Southeast Asia. Geologist, Mark Joff, comes to the Himalayas to investigate the earthquakes, where he meets a beautiful priestess, Kusoom, who has dozens of devotees to her cult. She claims the earthquakes are due to the birth of a great being, called a Cosmic Swan that will take them to the heavens. Mark doesnโ€™t believe her and insists his instruments will reveal the real cause, but eventually, he is persuaded when he sees its giant crystalline eye in a cave beneath the mountain. When the cosmic swan breaks out of the mountain, it is attacked by the Chinese military who try to destroy the Cosmic Swan, believing it is a monster like Godzilla. Mark fights to protect them, is wounded in the battle, and is taken onto the cosmic swan. Mark, Kusoom, and the devotees barely escape the attack but are saved when they are lifted up into space by the mother of the cosmic swan. Free to fly they hope to live peaceably in the beautiful land on the back of cosmic swan. But along the way, they face many challenges, including surviving a dive into Neptune to refuel, an attack of ice dragons, and encounters with beings from other planets. They also have to convince a Galactic Council to save the Earth from extinction by an exploding star, Betelgeuse. As the first episode ends, the Galactic Council refuses to help them. Will they find another way to save the Earth? by Bill Copeland, M.S., Cybernetic Systems CosmicSwan.com 5588 Palm Avenue Fresno, CA 93704 (650) 283 0506 cyberdrax@cosmicswan.com NOTE: A more detailed synopsis is available in the Show Bible.

geologist investigating strange tectonic phenomena discovers a mind-blowing secret under a mountain

in Tibet. For unknown reasons, the planet has been plagued by a seemingly unending string of earthquakes. To get a better handle on what’s going on, his superiors at the U.S. Geological Survey send geologist Mark Joff to Mount Kailas in Tibet, where the Indian subcontinent meets the Asian landmass, the apparent epicenter of the strange seismic activity. There the locals inform him that they have met a cult of otherworldly bluish people meditating in a cave opened up by the earthquakes. The cultists claim that the earthquakes are not caused by a rising magma plug (the leading scientific theory), but by the emergence of a Great Being, an enormous creature hatching from beneath the Earth’s crust after gestating underground for millennia. When the cultists show him the creature’s eye, Joff’s scientific skepticism rapidly gives way to concern for what the world’s governments might do when faced with the prospect of an enormous creature bursting through Earth’s surface, likely taking a large chunk of China with it. Meanwhile, a comet recently discovered by a pair of young astronomers shows signs of sentience as it hurtles toward Earth. In fact, it seems to be communicating with the Great Being emerging in Tibet. Joff joins with his new Tibetan friends to save the Great Being while he and other earthlings must decide whether to mend a broken planet or forge a new path. Copeland’s plot is well paced, with action that builds as the climax approaches. The characters are likable and ably fleshed out, and the overall conceit, if outlandish, is interesting. The author’s prose is fairly tight, but drifts somewhat when characters engage in quasi-scientific planetary speculation.

Well-written, with a unique cosmic and spiritual dimension.
