After seeing that artwork with some kind of poop monster in a fancy hat and smoking a pipe, I'm all in to read whatever you can share! =)
But seriously, I'll send you a preview or something--because the writers have given me the go-ahead to present their work online.
I'm not sure how exactly, though I'm thinking of serializing the script along with the relevant visual material. I will, of course, keep everyone here apprised and continue to upload tidbits. Speaking of which ...

This is some awesome stuff you got ProfKSergeev. I'm looking forward to seeing and reading more as you post it here. Woohoo!!!
That story, from what I've read would have been immense! Maybe one day we can see it in comic form. Now, If only I could do it some justice...
Will definitely do some concept doodles though :P
This was recovered from a 3.5" floppy. The filename allowed me to match it with the relevant passage from the script, which is excerpted below.
EXT. MARS – DESERT – JOHN HENRY – DAY
John Henry’s galaxy of sizzling impedance pads wheezes under unimaginable tonnage, flattening the Martian chaparral. Angry scanning clusters find the Volante, a distant speck.
The two EXODES, bulbous protrusions dominating the machine’s upper half, crack and fizzle. Teal-green static lightning pulses across their crusts.
From an early draft that took place on the Moon:
EYES. Delicate, curious, female. A beautiful peridot green.
WIDE--they belong to a diffident girl, keeping her distance, half-hidden behind a pillar. We’re still in the operating theater. Turquoise EARTHLIGHT pours in from an oculus. The instruments are off.
The girl is called Margarete, or MAGGIE, age 14.
Great artwork, love to see more!
First pic looks kind of like a speeder bike.
I've found that this episode is quite different from TAWKI, or Trek As We Know It, often with fascinating results.
Just found this thread (don't hop into this section often) - very interesting read so far.
One more from the floppies:
Soon, we're hoping by next January, all of this material and more will be archived on its own website. This will be the last update until then.
In the meanwhile, if you have any questions, please direct them to Syd Bodeen.
We'll look forward to seeing the new site then, thanks for the preview.
Can't wait to see it all. I hope that one day someone can turn it into something, like an animation or something.
Definitely deserves its own website. Please let us know when it's up.
