A Protagonist Tells His Story

Sci Fi Story Openers

This is an article written by Michael L Thal, author of the book ‘The Abduction of Joshua Bloom’. As an example of sci fi story openers, I hope you will agree that it is well written and entices you to try and find out more about Joshua Bloom and his experiences when he is abducted by aliens.

The Abduction of Joshua Bloom

Sci Fi Story Openers

I’m Joshua Bloom. The last three years of my life were spent on the Oceana starship Explorer. Oceanians look just like us, but the girls control everything. The ship’s captain is a great example. Lela was on my case from day one. She forced me to keep a daily regimen of demanding exercise and a healthy diet. I thought my track coach was tough. Lela expected me to exercise three hours a day, arrive to work on time, and get to bed early. And the rations were meager. My favorite dream was of a steak, French fries, and coke. I must concede, however, she did save my life. When I was jogging through Central Park, an escaped lion from the nearby zoo attacked me. If not for Lela’s transporter, I would have been breakfast.

On board ship was a dreamy girl. Her name was Anita. She was pretty pushy, but gorgeous. She was around my age, 16, with orange hair and dark skin. She didn’t have a voice, but spoke to me in my head. Anita was a telepath. The first time I saw her was in a dream back on Earth:

I jogged along a bike path with the sun to my back. Cottages kissed the hot sand. A long pebbly beach reached the ocean’s lapping waters. A girl streaked past me, turned and smiled. She seemed to be about my age, sixteen. Details of her face were obscured by shadows and dreamy murkiness.

“Can you catch up?” the dream girl asked.

Want to know the weird part? She didn’t speak. Her words were injected into my brain. Then dream girl darted down the path and through a dark tunnel.

I followed. The tunnel narrowed into a slit, waking me with claustrophobic shakes.

The dream recurred every few nights until that fateful day when I had enough of my twin brother, Moshe.

On one adventure with Anita aboard Explorer we transported down to a Sirus-4, a water world. There we discovered intelligent life in the form of undersea dolphins. If it wasn’t for the fast thinking of one of the creatures, we would have perished.

Anita said I had the potential of becoming an excellent diplomat. Perhaps one day I’ll negotiate a peace with the Palash. She doesn’t think that’s possible, for they are an alien race of conquerors only interested in obtaining a rare element used in space travel. Once they find what they want, they leave only destruction in their wake.

During my travels to distant worlds and the Oceana home world I met interesting intelligent life forms. I don’t want to give away too much here, but humanoids aren’t the only creatures with brains.

The one person I missed the most was my twin brother, Moshe. When we finally get back to Earth, Anita said he’d have aged thirty years. Oceanian scientists say it has something to do with the space/time conundrum.

If someone tells you that The Abduction of Joshua Bloom is a sci-fi novel, don’t believe it. Michael Thal wrote my bio. It’s 100% true.
