The JET Trilogy Synopsis
The Jet Trilogy starts with the main character Sirk Notaani embarking on a voluntary one-off mission to visit another planet, that allegedly supports humanoid life. Crash-landing on arrival he has to battle with fearsome 3 metre long beetles, after which he finds a settlement inhabited by dwarfed human life, and discovers he is in Scotland, the only race to survive the holocaust created by UWF and Cathan hostilities. Finding artefacts from his own time in a strange and vast museum confirms his suspicions, and Sirk discovers he is over 100,000 years in the future on his own planet! Realising he’s been duped he finds a way to repair his ship, The Diamond Dart, and return home. Determined to take revenge on those responsible, and hopefully save the world from pending disaster he faces The World Council, but they are not in a mood to listen. Jeered at by members of the auditorium, after his final plea fails Sirk makes a snap decision that will change his, and the lives of those he loves forever!
Earth to Earth
By contrast Earth to Earth begins with Sirk, his beautiful wife Cita, and his friends settling on Urf (as the Men call it) to start over, but this time Sirk is determined to make Earth a better planet to live on. Setting up home in the village with the Men they start out on a mission to rebuild their lives, and to improve those of the Men. having found a replicator in the museum, the ever resourceful professor Patenil adapts it to produce dome shaped housing for everyone. Cita is thrilled to find she is the cause of a happy occasion, and nine months later she gives birth. Six weeks later tragedy strikes when a mysterious disease takes the infants life, and distraught beyond belief Cita thinks she will never recover, but there is worse to come. The deadly disease that killed their baby now threatens to envelope the village, but Sirk’s quick thinking saves them from certain death. Matters then take a turn for the better, and settling down to everyday life the community begins to thrive and grow.
The last book in the trilogy starts with Smiffi and Donut, two erstwhile ne’er-do-well scavengers who are part of a team that scour the Universe and time for valuable artefacts, their employers Intergalax then sell them on for vast profit. Commissions earned from these artefacts can sometimes make the finder wealthy overnight, and allow the them to literally retire on one find! Deliberately paring Smiffi with Donut, their leader Haak finds his arrangement highly amusing, but Smiffi was not! Although he didn’t dislike the little guy, he found Donut hard work, but would never see harm come to him. Giving them Sector seventeen as a joke, Haak knew it had been cleaned out many years earlier, but the joke back fires on him when they come across the Diamond Dart. Initially Smiffi is content to return to base and claim his reward, but after finding a note in Sirk’s dead hand he realises that he has to return him to his own planet. In a clash with Laxxus, one of his bitter enemies Smiffi almost loses his life, but thanks to Sirk he emerges triumphant! However, you will have to read Eskhatos to find out how Sirk did it. This book draws the trilogy to a close.
