In a distant future China has assumed control of most of the world by capitalizing on our sun disappearing. However, A young scientist discovers that the sun problem can be solved, thus initiating another World War.
It explodes, thus leaving the world sunless i didn’t want to go into the sun disappearing too much because it part of the setup in the actual story. Basically ( I know i’m fudging science a bit) the nuclear fusion rate inside of our sun suddenly accelerates making it die faster.
great idea, Gman
A think its a little to wordy.
being sci fi – just saying “disappearing” seems vague. Are Aliens involved? Is our solar system dying? etc. If the sun is dying or about to die, tell us. No need to go into sci fi detail in the logline, leave that for the script.
Does your scientist have a flaw? Arrogance, loner? etc
Protag- Young scientist
Antag- china (Military leader) or rival scientist selling idea to china
Goal- restore life to sun
Inner Conflict- ? Time? Rival scientist or close friend?
Outer Conflict- battles china, WW3
Genre- Sci Fi
play with the words some more. Best of luck.
The fudging of the science does make it a bit hard to grasp for me but there is promise here I feel. You mentioned in a post the sun explodes? Maybe it should implode to avoid vapourizing at least half of the solar system? Could you word it something like…” China holds the world hostage by monopolizing a technology that protects the earth from a dying sun. Only one young and naive Australian scientist knows the secret but he must battle a Chinese assassin to get the secret into the right hands” My version is wordy and not spot on but maybe you get the gyst of what I’m trying to say. Good luck and good start! 🙂
