Whether the critic sets her sights on a portrait, a sonata, or a play, the task is always that of turning poetry into prose. The critic, in other words, must extract content from form—and making content and form inseparable is one of the goals of art.
Throughout the annals of history, there come moments where the entire fate of the world can be changed in a single day. Tours, Trafalgar, Stalingrad, each and every one set the stage for the years and decades that followed and forever changed the course of human history The United Nations stands as the rallying point for those nations that stand against the Augments of Khan Noonien Singh, two powers locked in a titanic clash of nations that sees entire continents turned into battlegrounds.
The very future of mankind. It was a war that the United Nations would ultimately prevail in, at a heavy price in bodies What if it was not the United Nations that emerged the victor, but Khan?
Part timeline and part story, Khan Victorious aims to explore what happens in a world where the science of genetic engineering is not abandoned by mankind, but elevated and embraced to its full potential, a world where Augmentation is given to the entire world, from the end of the Eugenics Wars to Star Trek Nemesis and beyond.
Right, so this story has been going for quite a while now before it was ported to Ao3, and I've been meaning to rewrite some of the details in this part to better fit in with how things have been written later on, but for the most part everything here should either fit directly into the main story or be addressed in later parts, so for now just read this one and I'll get around to replacing it with the final version later on!
The First Few Years. Jeff Carlson took a breath and sighed as he looked out towards the dark horizon, watching for the telltale flashes and thunder that had become the greatest sign of Khan Noonien Singh's armies sweeping away every last piece of opposition in their westwards march from the east coast, millions of men and thousands of tanks brushing aside the demoralized remnants of the last of their opposition.
It was a vessel like no other, a craft capable of not just travelling to Earth's moon or to Mars or to any of the other planets in the solar system, but able to cross the interstellar void to another star, a sleeper ship that would carry a hundred men and women on a voyage that would take the better part of a century to complete, every last one of its passengers having undergone an extensive background check to remove any question as to where their loyalties lay, and even more thorough were the tests and examinations that confirmed that they were all in good health, unaffected by that which had already claimed the rest of the world.
I want to take one last look before we leave. What is your name, anyway? I helped my father with the computers We wouldn't have been able to build her if it weren't for his chips.
To boldly go where no one has gone before No man has ever left the system before, hell, we've never even been past the Moon before, but I'll be damned if I let that stop us. I'm old," Jeff answered. As if it would make a difference if something went wrong. Khan's surprise had proven to be impossible to cure and almost so to prevent, but its presence could be detected with a good enough air sensor.
You've heard the news about LA already - everyone in the damned city is infected. In reality, the place was almost entirely a research site for next generation military hardware, stealth bombers and the like, with anyone who thought otherwise being often dismissed as a crackpot conspiracy theorist long before the war had started.
But Jeff Carlson knew otherwise, even though he had been sworn to secrecy and to never say the truth - he had seen a craft of extraterrestrial origin for himself in '47, a small pod that had held three big eared aliens. I'll take the secret to my grave, as Faith did But I guess this is goodbye.
I don't want Khan or anyone else finding out about this ship, and the longer we take the more chance they get.
As soon as the two men were inside, the last of the Botany Bay's passengers to board, he pressed the cycle button Jeff sighed, and with nothing else to do, he looked at the metal etchings.
Before the disease had begun to spread through the ranks of the combined armies of the United Nations, Khan Noonien Singh had been on the retreat - the overwhelming power of the combined industrial might of over thirty nations was beginning to show, with every tank, plane and ship they lost being replaced by twenty more, and a devastating offensive pushing through Europe had seen the last of his allies in the region crushed and the opening of yet another front in Anatolia, all whilst he lost the Pacific one Indonesian island at a time.
The noose had been tightening, and it had been known across the world that it would only be a matter of months before the war arrived at Khan's doorstep and entered India itself, where his war machine had its heart, and there were more than a few who had already started to lay out the plans for the post war world, so certain that the Augment armies were finally spent First unleashed on Ascension Island, the place from which the virus would get its name, the disease had first arrived in the form of a cruise missile, fired from a submarine off the coast that remained nearby, waiting and watching to see if the Khan's surprise had succeeded.
At first, the missile's strike had initially been dismissed as nothing more than a strike intended for the Wideawake Airfield that had went off course or as a terror mission, but barely a day after strange symptoms had begun to appear in the population - men and women of all ages were tiring more quickly than was the norm, a symptom that was quickly followed by chills and fits of coughing and sneezing and a sore throat along with a variety of other aches and pains, but - as was quickly deduced by the island's physicians - nothing particularly dangerous by the standards of what was clearly the deployment of a biological weapon.
Confident that the Khan's latest scheme had failed, life continued as normal after a day or two's panic, with the hospitals of the island reporting that the island was safe and that there was no need for more than a few days quarantine at most, treating it as though it were nothing more than a particularly potent strain of influenza Though the pattern of symptoms had not been known at the time, an abnormally large number of women had came into the hospitals and clinics complaining of aches and discomfort in their lower abdominal area, the only obvious symptom that had told of what the disease's true target was.
A few days later, the submarine still in hiding and still observing, a plane carrying men on leave from the frontline would arrive and be given a welcome fit for the glorious heroes they were, veterans of the Battle of the Suez Canal.
A happily married young woman called Elizabeth would welcome her husband home, and barely two weeks later found out that she was pregnant. Delighted by the news but concerned by the risk of deformity brought about by the news of regional nuclear exchanges in other parts of the world, she headed to her local hospital for an examination as quickly as she could.
Her child had all the markers of an Augment.In what follows, I will propose at least one answer to this:Shakespearean tragedy works through the loss of any “given” — nature, or God, or “fate” — that might explain human societies, histories, actions, destinies, relationships and values.
