Come up with an idea for a military scifi series

Ringkasan Peraduan

Idea should be expandable into a series of a few books. The story takes place in the future(~year 2200-2800) and follows the crew of a military ship(battleship/battlestar/dreadnaught, a primary battleship that also carries smaller space jet fighters and special forces/ground forces) who safe earth and/or the galaxy from the bad guys. It could start on earth, a colony world or in space on the ship.

Here are some ideas that I’ve already used:

1. Humanity is in early long distance space travel time. Two ships(Military/research) have been send out , one came back without finding anything and the other didnt return. Third one has just been completed when bad aliens attack. With the help of good aliens who intervene we can beat the bad guys and the good aliens share technology and help us upgrade, they do this because there is a huge war in the galaxy with the bad guys and it doesnt look good, here the story and the adventure starts.

2. On Earth we found an artefact. Its something like a alien databank with lots of knowledge and helped us progress incredibly fast. We build ships, explore space etc. Then one day alien ships appear near earth and start to attack, after destroying something like a patrole space ship they head towards the place where the artefact is kept. It becomes clear they are after it. With other ships who have been called back we are able to defeat the aliens and find out that a lot of other alien races are after these artefacts who are scattered through space. A race to gather all artefacts begins.

3. Aliens attack us and abduct humans. They harvest human life force and make it into an elixir, we fight back and are able to beat them. But this has only been one harvesting ship and the empire it belongs to will soon find out what happened to it. Before that we will have to find out about the empire, gather allies among the stars and beat the empire or earth is gonna get turned into a slaughter house

4. Humanity exlored the galaxy and established multiple colonies. The thing that made all of this possible is a special material that can be mined in space, something like space uranium. Now aliens start to attack us and claim the space uranium belongs to them. We obviously cant just hand it over since our technology(faster than light travel etc.) depends on it.

As you can see the ideas all folllow the same principle but are still different enough.

I dont want ideas to include:
- Aliens just fighting for habitable planets
- Aliens are robots/AI
- Aliens want to rule everything simply because
- Aliens want our water
- Aliens want to steal/harness our sun
- Time travel/parallel universe

Here are some more examples that also fall in line with what I’m looking for:

I’m looking for a few paragraphs in which the general idea for the series is written down with a few key points(how the story begins and a little background information).

The most important part is the reason for the conflict though. If the aliens are aggresive or conquering the galaxy why are they doing it? Because they know nothing else than war? NO! I want to have a good reason for that and the conflict like in my previous stories.

Classic Star Trekt with enemies like the Klingons or the Halo game series are great examples of what I'm looking for, espcially Halo with its incredible backstory.

UPDATE:

Special attention will be given to colonization ideas.

Ideas in which a part of humanity leaves the system to start somewhere new from scratch. The focus is still on the military part so there need to be challenges and conflicts that will have to be solved. Do not submit plots for just one book but an overall idea for at least 5+ books, not outlines for book 1,2,etc. but overall ideas like the examples.

    I had submitted a story concept where aliens weren't supposed to invade earth without a valid reason... the idea included developing subplots within the main plot that would reasonably reach a point from where the aliens declare a war on earthizens. Though I didn't inject any colonial plot in it yet i think it could update with time into an intriguing storyline for a series of stories.

      Hi. Thanks for your feedback. In the time left on the contest, I'll submit a new entry that expands to 5+ books (overall plots). Please see my two new comments on my existing entry. I have addressed the similarity between my entry and ME.

    I agree maybe just a quick one- or two-sentence feedback would have been nice, especially now that I'm seeing you want the emphasis on colonization, which was the plot line in my idea. In my mind, my idea was rejected because there was too much backstory and not enough room for military engagements (which I understand is your main objective!) or that you simply didn't like the idea (which is also understandable). However, a part in the back of my brain always wonders if my proposal was just rejected without being read. I know that's unlikely, but just some quick feedback would be nice for future reference. That being said, this contest got my creative juices flowing, and I now have the plot line to a sci-fi series I can just write myself haha. So, I thank you for that, and I wish you best of luck in your writing career! :)

    Hi, in your description you mentioned "If you have any questions feel free to ask." The clarification board is full of questions. Would you at least care to answer those. Rejecting the idea is no issue. But, an explanation would be great. Maybe a private message if that's not too much to ask. To me it seems like you don't care about our time and effort we have invested on helping you with your Si-Fi series. Thanks.

    Hi. My entry was No.172. which was rejected . I did think that it was a great idea personally at least. Maybe I over rate myself. I had alot of ideas to build it up. So please let me know where the shortcoming was and I can re-submit a new idea. Thanx. Have a nice day.

      Lol he outright rejects people's works without ever offering an explanation. The least he could do is to offer a rating, but no, it's impossible to gauge how well (or terribly) we did when he can't provide any feedback.

    Hi I've got a question, can we add to the story some elements related to real life ? for example can we mention some real events happened in real life but somehow make it in the story, or can we use some real places in the story?

    Here I have written a short story with a legit reason for the aliens to attack humans. However, this is just the beginning of a story that could make large books. Please go through my story. I hope you will enjoy it

    Hello, I am a little bit confused here because I am not able to understand from what perspective you want to continue the story. Should it be from a military of humans perspective or should it be from an Alien's perspective? The points you have mentioned reminded me of the movie Transformers, Arrival and some other movies. I want to know what do you exactly want an idea of a whole series or a continuation of the details that you gave. Thank you.
