Contest Brief

Hey,

I’m looking for ideas for a action/adventure/military scifi series. Our main character(man) somehow ends up in a situation where he goes on adventures that involves a spaceship and him saving the day, earth, the galaxy. He can start alone or be part of a crew. It can start in the present day, but then there has to be a plausible scenario on how he comes in contact with advanced technology or start in the future at a point where humans on earth are advanced enough to travel space. The focus is on fights, challenges and conflicts that will have to be solved.

Below are a few possible titles which might spark your imagination, you are free to develop a plot based on these titles or another of your own:

Chronicles Of Mankind
Diaspora
Spaceship Graveyard


Here are some examples that fall in line with what I’m looking for:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B099LJNCHQ
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09XKPYVFF
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09QJLVWKR
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08VHNNG5W
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09MZLQSXY
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09VBGTKVW
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CIXX144
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZTNXCDD


I dont want ideas to include:
- Aliens are only robots/AI
- Aliens want our water
- Aliens want to steal/harness the sun
- Time travel/parallel universe

I’m looking for a few paragraphs in which the general idea for the series is written down with a few key points(how the story begins and a little background information).

What is actually happening in book 1 of the series? What is the problem that has to be solved, how is our main character involved in this? Who are the enemies, what is their motivation? Whats the overall plot for the series where the main character becomes important on a bigger scale like saving the planet, galaxy etc.

    You all know the chances of any of you winning this contest is less than 0.5% right?

      Not a lottery so probability calculation does not apply here. Since regular feedback is being given, and by extending the deadline the CH has already demonstrated that any entry submitted before the latest extension is no longer in the running, the chance of winning is still wide open. and TBF any entry that's rejected (198 and counting) is no longer the provenance of the CH and can instead be used/repurposed by the contestant for their own novellas.

      Gokul.....how can you be so sure that the rejected entries have not at all been used by the CH for his own "novellas"?

    There is no way to tell which entries are being used to "develop" the ideas and which are being left out.

      Piero, since you continue to impulsively represent the CH here.....despite your claims otherwise.....why not show some proof that none of the remaining entries have been used in sparking up the CH's "writing" skills?........And feel free to stop anytime you find your replies are actually immaterial, as I won't be telling you to do that.
