Review: The Contact: Episode One
The Contact: Episode One (of four) tells the beginning of a first contact science fiction story. Something has entered the solar system and was accelerating until it used Saturn to slow down and then took up orbit around Jupiter.
Natural objects don't do that.
Two young student-scientists are the first ones to realise that the object is an alien vessel and that it is trying to make contact. An international team of eminent scientists is gathered to decide how to make contact with the craft.
The end of episode one happens just as the first communication is exchanged with the unknown ship.
It was very well done and almost realistic in how it is portrayed. The first part, which I read, is free. What happens next, I dunno until payday.
I give it a thumbs up, it's just far too short. Each of the other parts are also as short and are about $1.69 each, making it about $5 total.
(I could not link to the cover from the website, this seems to be an earlier version)
