Space… The Final “Oh Shit”…

I’ve had space tales running through my head a lot lately.  I’m not big on Sci Fi so much but when I was a kid Aliens with Sigourny (sp) Weaver.  The whole series was awe inspiring to me.  Unlike the Predator in the corresponding series of films, the xenomorphs of the Aliens films were merciless monsters with a pretty set pattern of activity.  This would be “Kill, Reproduce, Kill, Reproduce”  What could be more terrifying than nature with claws and nasty pointy teeth?

But what’s so interesting about nature being so vicious it’s in an unnatural setting.  We as humans cannot breath in the vacuum of space.  We weren’t meant to wander free, and to think that there could be creatures dominant there with such vicious intent is terrifying.

The worst concept is of a spaceship with something else on board.  There’s nowhere you can run, there’s a limited amount of supplies and if something gets broken that deals with life support, with keeping you from dying than you either go through the danger to fix it or you die.  It’s the futuristic panic version of between a rock and a hard place.  Might make for a good story some day.
