The Seed - Sample Treatment

Opening credits are shown as a gigantic bight magenta and bluish ball of electrical pulsating plasma races through space. It passes at high speeds, wonderful spectacles and places never before seen in the universe. It glows brightly in the night sky as it is seen from various alien planet surfaces. As it begins to slow down and enter into an orbit around a small seemingly lifeless planet as the credits end and the light engulfs the audience and we now enter inside the glowing ball. It is, in a way, a space ship. A scientific research vessel. The inner surfaces are solid but seem organic as if the ship were living. The walls pulse with electrical energy. A humanoid male shape appears to float in the distance and makes it's way down the dimly lit corridor. A female form meets him. As they become clearer it is seen that the two humanoids are floating in a liquid. They wear simple loincloths and a device over their faces. Together they enter a tube that leads upward. Jazani'ah and Ashtoreth exit the liquid filled tube and enter a small room. Several large crystals contain what appears to be scientific equipment and computers. Jazani'ah is a male in his late twenties. Twenty-nine to be exact. He has long flowing hair, pain skin and over sized, but soft eyes. He walks towards and opens in the wall and grabs two white robes. He hands one to the semi nude female Ashtoreth. She too is in her late twenties but a year younger that Jazani'ah. Her blonde hair should be wet from the liquid but it dries before she has time to remove her facemask. She has over sized alien eyes as well but they are warm and friendly. Her skin is fair and pale. Both figures are thin and tall.

"Are you at all excited?" asks Ashtoreth.
"Indeed. The possibilities of a life form on a sulfur and carbon dioxide planet this far from a sun are astounding. I may actually log some laboratory time." replies Jazani'ah.

"You know what I speak of, do not avoid the question." Ashtoreth says with a slight smile.
There is a short pause. Then Jazani'ah smiles.
"Of course I am excited!" He says.
"I too can not wait for my birthing!" Ashtoreth comments.

A shadow moves behind them.

"It is an endless cycle that brings us much joy!" says Quar.

An elderly man steps into the light of the room. He is old but in good health. He shares the trait of the larger eyes but his look is less compassionate than the two younger members of this species. He touches Jazani'ah and try's to smile. Jazani'ah touches his hand with compassion.

"I am sorry Master, had I know you were here…." Says Jazani'ah
"Think nothing of it Jazani'ah. I'm have come to terms with my birthing….or lack there of." Quar says walking towards a small screen.

"Master, what is it like to face death?" Ashtoreth asks and is shot a surprised look by Jazani'ah.

"I face it with as much anticipation as young Jazani'ah looks forward to his birthing. This life may end, but I will live on. I fear not. My lineage will continue. On our home world, I am a young man writing poetry and creating works of art. Only this body faces death here." Quar responded half-heartedly.

"Have your years given you a better insight Master?" Asks Jazani'ah
