The Reflection

The space ship reminded him of a hall of mirrors. Every surface was polished to a sheen. Intriguing reflections came back at him from the highly polished surfaces. Bizarre images, outlandish shapes, joined by strange sounds and even stranger smells.

His host seems super confident and basically ignored James, he appeared to fear nothing from a specimen from such a primitive planet.

Managing the transportation ship had become routine for Zorran, for the hibernation cells kept the specimens calm.

A relaxed Zorran smiled as a Vulcan with pointed ears was beamed aboard.

Spock looked towards James. The battle could begin.



A follow up story from two earlier stories: called Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and The Cell. Hopefully I will complete this saga!

    Dear Michael,

    Fortunately this bit stands on its own. Given the number of stories each week, I don’t try to keep up with sagas and series.Fun. Mr. Spock was always my favorite Star Trek character.



    1. Michael Humphris

      I loved the main characters in the early Star Trek series, and Spock brought them all to life.

    It’s life jim, but not as we know it

      To true, I don’t remember them meeting James Bond

  3. Iain Kelly

    Woah, hold on – have we just crossed Bond with Star Trek! Where next?!?

      Thank you so much. Mike

    Agree with Rochelle. This does stand alone. And frankly, I cannot get tired of Star Trek!

    1. Michael Humphris

      I have always enjoyed some types of Sci Fi, especially Star Trek. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Mike

  6. Sandra

    Original take – well done.

    Like our exalted leader, I do not follow serials, but this stands nicely by itself.
    Oh, and Mr Connery will whup Nimoy, nae problem!

  8. draliman

    Ah, so that’s how he’s going to escape. With a little help from his friends!

    1. Michael Humphris

      I hope so.

  9. tedstrutz

    Nice take.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Now for the difficult part, how do I get James back to earth. You know I have no idea’s at the present time.

    What a great idea, loved it!

      Thank you so much for your comment. Mike

    I love the opening line in this tale. It made me look twice at the lake.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you very much for your support. Mike.

    Spock’s the best! Interesting idea to mix Bond and Star Trek. 🙂

    1. Michael Humphris

      Leonard Nimoy played Spock to perfection.

  13. rgayer55

    An interesting take. I wonder who has time to polish all those surfaces? Perhaps they captured Mr. Clean as well.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Now there’s a question. I don’t think that I meet Mr Clean yet.

    Awesome interpretation, using the reflection of the water as a jumping off point. I’ve not read the other pieces, but this works well on it’s own. (My own story is a character development piece of the MC in a sci-fi story that I’ve been sorting out.) There seems to be a bit of head hopping in the first paragraph, from James to his host. Otherwise, an excellent tale of post-capture to the brink of escape (one hopes)!
    Happy trails! 🙂

      Some days it seems like this writers mind goes to sleep. Then the grammar goes out of the window. Sorry.
      Thank you for letting me know, I do value that, for I may reuse this piece and now I know I need to tidy it up.

      1. The Mom Who Runs

        I’m just glad my feedback is useful. 🙂 I know I’m guilty of the same or similar in my own work!

        1. Michael Humphris

          thank you mike

  15. magarisa

    Great sci-fi story!

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you, I am not sure yet where this story will end.

  16. lingeringvisions by Dawn

    LOL..I enjoyed the Star Trek references

    1. Michael Humphris

      I am pleased about that. Thank you. mike

  17. gahlearner

    Star Trek, yay. Mr. Spock may be in for a bit of a surprise with James though. Great story.

    1. Michael Humphris

      thank you, I have yet to know how this story will work out.
