The Holy Compass, John Storm cures Pope Peter-Benedict of cancer







Following China and Russia plotting together to destabilize the world economy, to their advantage. China timed the release and propaganda drive, to push the west to virtual lockdown with their COVID 19 virus.


Ramping up borrowing, Australasia, Europe and the Americas falling for the Red feint like a ton of bricks, predictably, the west lining their pockets with procurement backhanders, blinding them to the realities.


In advance, Russia built up their supply of gas and oil, making Europe dependent on cheap Red energy, also hypnotizing India, who gorged on discounted crude and fertilizer. The agenda being to strike when the economies of their adversaries was at the weakest, allowing Vladimir Putin to walk into the Ukraine unopposed, as part of their imperialist empire building. While China angled to invade Taiwan having financially crippled the USA, so cornering the computer chip market. Or, so they thought.

Fortunately, the West tumbled the plan just in time to prevent complete economic meltdown and Communist domination, recognising that appeasement policies had utterly failed. Escalation, almost ended in thermonuclear annihilation. But a warrant for the former FSB officer, was enacted, with Putin being charged as a war criminal.


It would be a long uphill struggle to quash cyber attacks, and rebuild equitably. All the while searching for an edge. Enter John Storm and CyberCore Genetica. The answer to a maiden's prayer.




In this (fictional) John Storm adventure, the ocean adventurer is also an amateur Paleo Anthropologist. He is near obsessed with his DNA collection called 'The Ark,' that is safely stored onboard his trusty ship, the Elizabeth Swann, protected by an armory of security measures.

Having been injected with a super virus, John Storm became DNA enhanced. This was during his efforts to save a replicated Cleopatra VII, after her sarcophagus is discovered by a group of scientists, bent on displacing the present corrupt systems of government, with a new species of super-human, incorporating the Macedonian royal bloodline, ruling class of Ancient Egypt.

Our hero also recovers a super-nano-computer called CyberCore Genetica™ which, when coupled with Hal, the Swann's onboard AI, John Storm recognizes that he can recreate virtually any species of flora or fauna. Including splicing and defect corrections, an act of creation.

Following this extraordinary discovery, John realizes that it is theoretically possible to halt the ageing process. Meaning that everlasting life is possible. Incredibly, a distinct possibility, over and above mere superstition and spiritual hocus, pocus. This is scary real science in the making.

In addition, the replication of the former Queen of Egypt, serves as proof positive, that there are several potential routes to achieving everlasting life. A prospect that would seriously disturb the Vatican, Catholic Church and many other religions. Giving man, the divine spark, in the process diluting absolute divinity. Making John and Cleopatra somewhat sought after for their DNA, potential gods, rather than mere mortals. Although, they are very much mortal.


The concept is put to the test, as John and his crew cure Pope Peter-Benedict of stage four cancer. Convincingly demonstrating that the technology works.

It is an interesting concept, that our hero is having difficulty coming to terms with. Being a naturalist, John leans towards maintaining the status quo. Not interfering with nature. And not allowing any group, agency, or government to control such technology. Where power corrupts, and absolute power, corrupts absolutely. To wit, Henry VIII and Adolf Hitler proclaiming their word to be law.

In this series, the CIA had already tried to kidnap Cleopatra, conspiring with MI6 and other agencies. It is not long before some of the mega-rich retirees, and other wealthy world leaders, attempt to steal the Ark and replication cloning technology, to give themselves another lifetime on the planet, or even a shot at everlasting life. But there are other factors.

John and his crew do not have long to dwell on this, when a new adventure begins. A quest to put replication out of reach of the antagonists, plotting to acquire what they see as the Holy Grail for themselves, the Cup of Christ, and the one thing that they could not buy with all of their money; eternal life. In preparation for future struggles, John corrects the defects in his new genome, to create a new species: Kanis Rex - Homo Sapiens Superior, or king of the apes. Significantly speeding up human evolution in the process. He is going to need an edge.




His adversaries combine to destroy John's credibility with a malicious prosecution, alleging heritage theft. The aim being to obtain confiscation and tagging orders. Hence, defeating the lofty ideals that prevent John from being corrupted.


Following the discovery of Captain Henry Morgan's treasure, a legal battle royal ensues, where opposing claimants try to force John to reveal the location of the treasure trove. But John refuses to disclose the hiding place, because the claimant's various will not negotiate reasonably. Ultimately, John wins the case, where his opponents cannot prove title to any of the treasures, by way of providence. Their claims are struck out, John being awarded all of the pirates bounty by the International Court, with the proviso that he donates any archaeologically pieces, to an appropriate museum. Something, John had suggested to the Court, by way of compromise. The verdict makes him a very wealthy philanthropist - and psuedo officer of the court, much to the delight of George Franks. When John only started out to survey Port Royal for Blue Shield, as a good deed. Franks is very helpful as an online Mackenzie Friend. 

This infuriates the CIA, MI6, and several mystery bidders, one of which is the richest person in the world, Musket (Klusky) Meloni, whose legitimate (name your price) offers to purchase the life giving technology, are turned down. Mainly, because he has abused his position of trust in the banking world to profit by the labours of others. John is opposed to financial slavery. Indeed, any form of slavery, and most especially cruelty.

Ignoring President Lincoln Truman's order to leave John be, the mystery (so-called) bidders bribe the military in positions of great trust, to help them steal, what they cannot buy.

Whereas, the military want the tech for themselves, to be able to hack the computers of other nations, for superiority in times of aggression, mainly against the unerring Red contingent. Aimed at eventual world domination for the west.


Thus, a double cross is on the cards. Musket Meloni's country estate is targeted, his henchmen machine gunning the intruders. Meloni installs robotic machine gun sentries and SAM missiles. Realising the weaknesses of ordinary accommodation, Meloni sets up a secret bomb proof bunker, equipped with the more powerful AI his money could buy.


Musket Meloni, tries to hack into Captain Nemo, and Hal. A Cyber War ensues, with the richest man in the world throwing all his AI resources into trying to take control of the Elizabeth Swann. And, he is winning. Meloni manages to plant a virus in Hal, that almost succeeds in stealing data from The Ark. Fortunately, Dan uses CyberCore Genetica™ to reverse the virus, Enigma fashion, feeding the Billionaire bogus information, then turning the tables, finding the billionaire's camouflaged steel reinforced concrete lair. In Donald Trump fashion, Homeland Security act on information supplied by John, to arrest Musket Meloni.

Where John, Cleopatra, and the Swann were hard targets; capture or kill. The tables are turned, with President Linc Truman tuning in to thank the adventurer for heading off yet another catastrophe, and re-affirm his continued alliance with John.




The Foundation is eager to begin on this story as a movie screenplay. It's also deemed ideal for networked TV serialization. (Subject to change in development)
