2109: Black Sun Rising

This is a Bill Hollweg scripted project for Broken Sea Audio, which may not mean much to you, but those who know him more closely know that he pours himself into his scripts and his production. This is the first arc of an all original pulp sci-fi audio drama adventure, and I have it on good authority that Bill put a lot of heart and soul into this one.

So it’s with great honor that I announce the release of the first episode of 2109: Black Sun Rising. If you listened to the prequel that I co-wrote with Bill, you heard my character, Dyllan Pike, lead the first mission out of our solar system and barely make it back alive. As his hobbled ship limped back home, his fiance was piloting another on the way out. And so opens the first season of 2109.

Please give it a listen and tell Bill what you think. I don’t want to hear what you think, but feel free to heap blind praise upon me. 😉  Seriously, I’m very proud of this and I think you’ll like it for what it is, and the potential for what it may become.

RELEASED: 2109: Black Sun Rising, the prequel logs, episode 7

This is the final prequel episode that sets up the opening scene of the main series which is going into production very soon!

Episode 7 : Some Things Worse than Death

Pike is being sent where the secret truth about the Azimov  1 mission will never get out. But before he goes, there are a few questions to sort out and a revelation that will lead to Veers having Pike dragged out screaming.

These are all very short episodes, ranging from 8-15 minutes, so there’s no reason not to give it a try. It’s a little pulp sci-fi, a little space opera, and written by two guys who have appeared in Star Trek universe fan fic audio dramas and have a deep love for that original series.

RELEASED: 2109: Black Sun Rising, the prequel logs, episode 6

I actually don’t appear in this one, but I co-wrote it so I’m damn well going to link it. Besides, Joe Stofko has performed brilliantly as Fleet Admiral Veers, and you don’t want to miss this performance either.

SIDE NOTE: I had the pleasure of appearing with Joe in another BrokenSea/Bill Hollweg production – The Strange Fate Of Matthew Hornblower – that you’re going to want to check out if you missed it the first time I posted about it. Me with a New England accent is worth a chuckle any day of the week.

Episode 6 : The Coldness of Space

The Azimov 1 has returned to earth. All investigations have concluded. Tough decisions need to be made. Admiral Veers is a tough man.

These are all very short episodes, ranging from 8-15 minutes, so there’s no reason not to give it a try. It’s a little pulp sci-fi, a little space opera, and written by two guys who have appeared in Star Trek universe fan fic audio dramas and have a deep love for that original series.

Episode 5 : Cursed to Live
Even with more food available than originally thought, reserves are tight and long hours on little food is taking it’s toll on the Azimov-1’s crew. When they started home, there was almost no chance of survival. Now there’s a chance, but it’s not a good one.

RELEASED: 2109: Black Sun Rising, the prequel logs, episode 4

This is it. This is the episode I have been waiting for to promo this show to everybody. The first three establish it, and this is where it gets weird! I would love if you would listen to everything up to this point and let me know what you think. Then, if you’re interested, keep your eyes peeled for new episodes every month. It’s all-original pulp sci-fi with a high production value — for FREE!

Episode 4 : Sacrifices
The Azimov 1 is hobbling home across the galaxy. Food reserves are waning. Tensions are high. It’s enough to put the closest of relationships to the test.

RELEASED: 2109: Black Sun Rising, the prequel logs, episode 3

This is the third of seven prequels for 2109 which I co-wrote and voice acted. I’m practically vibrating with anticipation — this is all build-up to episodes 4 & 5. 6 is the denouement and 7 is the epilogue. Then we’re ready for the real story [stories] to begin!

pssst! – rumor has it we may not have to wait a whole month for episode 4, so stay tuned!

How often do you get all-original pulp sci-fi with a high production value — for FREE! — that you can listen to on your commute? And three episodes in the can is a great place to jump in and then pucker up for next month. It’s a win all around!

Also, have a look at the previous episode postings if you want a look at the original script. Since there’s nothing to hide at this point, I figure I’ll post them and going forward I’ll keep posting them a month behind. You may have no use for them, but some people like the extra info, and it’ll give you a point of reference if I mumbled something too incoherently to figure out.

I get to captain a spaceship, this is gonna rock!

Episode 3: The Trip Begins Again
One gravity slingshot and an explosive push later, the crew of the Azimov 1 settles in for the long ride home. The VERY long ride home.

These are all very short episodes, ranging from 8-15 minutes, so there’s no reason not to give it a try. It’s a little pulp sci-fi, a little space opera, and written by two guys who have appeared in Star Trek universe fan fic audio dramas and have a deep love for that original series.

RELEASED: 2109: Black Sun Rising, the prequel logs, episode 2

This is the second of seven prequels for 2109 which I co-wrote and voice acted, and it’s all I can do to not share them all right now because I’m so proud of how they came out.

Episode 2: A Change of Plans
Good leaders have the knowledge necessary to keep things moving in the right direction. Great leaders have solid instincts and the ability to foster unwavering loyalty in their subordinates so that when troubles arise, the group pulls together and sails through. In this episode, troubles arise and Captain Dyllan Pike’s mettle is put to the test.
