Inside Space: Time Warp

Here’s a visual script from a segment I wrote and produced for the Sci-Fi Channel’s “Inside Space” television series back in 1993.

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 12.44.00 PMThe host of the show was Nichelle Nichols.

Nichelle was the actress who played Lt. Uhurah from the original Star Trek television series.

She had he honor of performing the first interracial kiss on television with William Shatner (Captain Kirk).

 

TITLE SEQUENCE

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 12.43.19 PMThe letters “Time Warp” are present through several stages in earth history…

Ancient sand that blows away…

A medieval parchment burning…

A Roman column cracking…

And the front cover to newspaper announcing that man has landed on the moon

THE SCRIPT

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 12.44.17 PMPretend that the entire history of the universe spans only twenty-four hours.

Planet earth forms..

at four o’clock

The big bank occurs the instant after midnight.

But you will have to wait till three in the afternoon for the sun to ignite.

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 12.44.26 PMAnd life arrives in time for dinner…

at 6 in the evening.

With every tick of the cosmic clock…

a new species evolves and a moment later…

their gone forever.

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 12.47.08 PM

With every tick of the cosmic clock a new species evolves and a moment later…

their gone forever.

Just a few minutes before midnight, the dinosaurs appear…

rule the earth and mysteriously disappear.

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 12.47.37 PM

Somewhere, in the last minute before midnight, a hairless ape walks upright.

And in the last second on cosmic history, humans appear, logically contemplating the universe.

Thank you for joining us once again on this journey of discovery.  And I invite you all to watch us next week and every week as we travel again… Inside Space.
