I'm thinking of doing a Futurama prequel set in the 2030's and revolving around Phillip Fry II and the crew of the IESS Aloha Mars.

Characters:

Phillip 'Phil' Fry II

Named after his uncle, who vanished after returning from a narwhal hunting trip to the North Pole 20 years ago. Phil is the Captain of the Aloha Mars the first spaceship capable of traveling from planet to planet in mere weeks due to the invention of the Hyper-Slipstream Drive.

Laika Smirnova

A Russian-American scientist. Laika is the second in command of the Aloha Mars.

Ray Rodreugez

Founder of Rodreugez Robotics, expert engineer abord the AM.

Hugo Wong

Son of Theodore Wong, CEO of Wong Astronaughtics Corperation. Expert on the Hyperslipstream Drive.

A cookie to the peron who can gues what Laika's name is a reference to.

In case youre wondering about Hugo Wong: Yes, he is Amy's great great ect grandfather.

More characters:

Njord Halsdottir

Wife of Phil and mother to Felix. Works as a secertary for WongCorp.

Felix Fry

Son of Phil and ancestor of Professor Farnsworth. Wants to be like his father when he grows up.

Gregori Tarunga

Russian genetisist with a shadowy past, married to Laika.

Randall Baxter

Financial Adviser to Theodore Wong. Was sent by Theodore to supervise the Aloha Mars crew. Is disliked by everyone.

Eugene Brannigan

Head of Operations at 'Mission Control' just as arrogant and dimwitted as his decendant.

Errrr, Nijord and Laika are female.

Any way I am working on the Pilot episode script and I'll put it up when its completed. Another thing is that this will not be like Futurama:

1. It has a multi episode storyline
2. It is a lot darker than Futurama
3. It will explain certain things that you see in Futurama.

A bit more info regarding the plot:

'In 2027 NASA was falling on hard times, a series of failed missions have resulted in funding for NASA being withdrawn. The government began to seriously think about dissolving it all together. However, an enterprizing Chinese businessman, Theodore Wong offered the government with a solution, he would take NASA off their hands-for a price. The government reluctantly agreed and NASA became property of Wong Astronaughtics Corp. Little did they know that the fineprint of the agreement was that WAC would, by default, own and take credit for, any discovery that NASA makes. In 2028 WAC/NASA began conducting research into the Hyper-Slipstream Drive, a device that would enable ships to travel from one planet to the next in mere months. The man who invented the drive was Cyrus Lauderdale, as a result, the Cyrus Lauderdale Institute of Technology on Mars is named after him'

Yes but with less sex.

I would describe it as a comedy-drama like Futurama, but with more emphasis on drama.

[A shot of the Aloha Mars as it flys through space. It looks like a futuristic version of the space shuttle only sleeker and with engine nacelles like on the Nimbus.]


[the bridge]

Phil: Captains log. Stardate......what the hell is a stardate anyway? Is it just a bunch of random numbers?

Laika: In the orginal series of Star Trek Gene Roddenberry did not want the series to be dated so he invented the term 'stardate' to get around it.

Phil: Oh. Well srcew that. Captains log, Stardate July 23rd 2035. It has been five years scince my historic and career defining jaunt on the Martian surface-

Laika: Ego much?

Phil: Now, the Aloha Mars is returning to Mars to oversee construction of the first martian base, Olympus One. There we will meet up with the British scientist Professor Hayden Aaronson who is an expert on the technology to make planet-based research stations and helped build the base on Luna. He is also a patronizing limey jerkoff who thinks that just because you havent invented a thousand things by the time you were thirty you arnt worth anything!

Laika: Do I detect a hint of dislike in your voice?


[Enter Ray]

Ray: How are you two lovebirds doing?

Phil: I assume you didnt walk all the way from the engine room to the bridge just to crack some yucks so whats the engine status?

Ray: Engines are running at peak efficency. At this rate we should be at Mars by the middle of next week.

Phil: Next week?!

Ray: Look, Phil, I am pushing it as it is. Anymore and we will resemble tomato puree by the time we get to Mars.

Phil:*sigh* Fine. [gets up] If anyone wants me I'll be in my quarters.

[leaves]

Ray: Whats with him?

Laika: He and Commander Aaronson have a bit of a history. Aaronson joined the Astronaut Cadets as part of the International Space Agency Student Exchange Program. Long story short, Phil and Aaronson were rivals.

Ray: Oh, is that it? Some sort of high school esque fued? Great, our first mission together in five years and its 'Class Of 2028 Reunion' Fantastic.

[cut to Rec Room]
[Hugo and Asimov a prototype robot created by Ray are playing cards]

Hugo: Ok, your turn.

[Asimov slams a card on the table]

Asimov: Snap!

Hugo: Oh for the love of- for the last time, Asimov we are playing Poker!

Asimov: This 'Poker' you speak of is too hard for me to play, as I have no clothes to strip off.

Hugo: This isnt Strip Poker, this is just regular Poker. No nudity required.

Asimov: To quote my creator: 'If a card game does not have the word 'strip' in the title then it aint worth playing'

Hugo: And yet you are the first robot with Artificial Intelligence, I weep for the future of Cybernetics, I really do.

[enter Ray]

Ray: Hey guys. Whats the haps?

Hugo: I am trying to teach this robot of yours to play poker.

Ray: Why?

Hugo: Mostly because I am bored but mainly because I think it'll increase his brain power. Right now his IQ is on a level with someone who watches Sex And The City.

Asimov: The only reason I watch that show is because I think Sarah Jessica Parker is hot.

[there is a pause as Hugo and Ray both stare at Asimov]

Asimov: What?

Ray: First thing I'm gonna do when we get to Olympus is have the technicians take a look at your CPU.
