The world has changed in 20 years… This is our 6th Linkup and it is a really open topic about 20 years from now.
One of the most exciting changes is we now have deep space exploration ships! And they have discovered seven new galaxies. One was inhabited, and that is where our trouble and discoveries began!
The galaxy had six planets and two were extremely close together. Both of those planets were inhabited. The creatures that were occupying these planets were intelligent and humanoid, but their appearances were quite different. Indigenous to one of the planets were reptilian scaled humanoids that were green, had tails, and strange crown-like formations where scales had grown long on their head. Indigenous to the other planet, were similar beings, except they were orange and instead of crown-like formations, they had fan-like formations made of enlarged scales on each side of their head that they could flare when threatened or angered. Both planets were civilized and populated by Green and Orange species and had the same type of technology as us.
They had a strange rule on these two planets, non-scaled animals were to be kept as pets or eaten… but they had never actually seen a non-scaled intelligent being. So when our exploration ship landed, they were quite surprised to see our people without scales! We discovered that the Green and Orange reptilian people were allies. Soon Earth had people from each of our allies on each other’s planets, humans would take vacations on the other planets, Reptilians would have vacations on our planet, etc.
Not long after that, we started having problems, some of our reptilian allies became enemies, and small groups of them started going back to their traditional ways, thinking we were inferior to them. But when a reptilian citizen over heard one of these gangs conversations they reported to us about this we and quickly developed a new elite version of police, the Galactic Guard. The Galactic Guard have advanced laser firing guns called blasters and they wear deep dark blue armor with a black visor at eye level. They were taught new strategies to take down these rebellions if they attacked, and they did. The first strikes were almost pitiful, stealing small air bikes called speeders. Then they started driving through cities firing blasters into buildings, not much damage was caused by these actions. But not long they started firing modified blasters at people which would cause severe pain and knock them unconscious, this is when Galactic Guard stepped in and started business.
Right when this started and the rebels saw that we had a new version of police and how easily the they could be caught and imprisoned, they started slowing down their raids till finally they completely stopped. A message was found in a senator’s office saying that there was no more need to fight, and it was time to start new and forget the past. Soon things were back to normal and everything calmed down. The normal police could take care of the everyday crimes now and seeing how someone could break into the senator’s building, the Galactic Guard was changed from a police like squad to a Senate Guard like squad, escorting high rank, government officials and other things. And soon life went on, like nothing ever happened.
Have you ever thought of what it might Really be like in 20 years? I think there may be amazing technological, scientific, and other things that are improved. There might even be everyone’s dream flying car, or a house that can talk to you. There are almost limitless possibilities of what could happen in 20 years. I am looking forward to my 32nd birthday!
See you soon!
