Project Genesis

Project Genesis – Commander’s Journal Entry – 24th August 2012 – Earth Time:

‘Nineteen capsules were successfully dropped on to the planet’s surface at exactly 1300 hours. ‘The Mist’, code name XZ345BT, spread rapidly. Our scanners indicate the entire planet was engulfed within 23 minutes. Initial signs of panic amongst the population soon dissipated once ‘The Mist’ began its work. It is now 1400 hours and all signs of life have been extinguished. Our intensive cleansing process has been completed and we are in the process of sending in teams to prepare the planet for it’s new inhabitants. Their ETA is 1900 hours.’

  1. Do you know I can just imagine that happening here – in fact haven’t there been a few sci-fi films recently with this as the central premise. Really well done, I sort of want to know what happens next though ….!

      1. I agree with that wholeheartedly, I only have to remember watching programmes like Tomorrow’s World in the 1970’s to see that what we thought might never be possible, actually is 🙂

  2. i’m wondering if the humans are doing the exterminating or are being exterminated – either way the official tone of this communique suggests the Commander has no sympathy for his victims. Scary stuff here.

  3. What will they do with our planet? Repopulate it with plants and animals with which they are familiar? Strip mine it? Good thing I was living under that rock in that cave so now I can be man’s last hope, except the whole inability to have children thing.

  4. This is too creepy and too realistic. Enough to scare the begeezees out of me. I sure hope no crazed “end of the world” scientist reads your story and decides to experiment in his lab….otherwise we are truly doomed. I’m #36 on the lsit.

I look forward to reading your comments
