Tall ships (porthole)

Mission: 2110

Ok, so last night's update was actually submitted after midnight, but I claim that it's still yesterday's update as I hadn't gone to bed yet. Thanks to talismancer for prodding me.

Anyway, time for an actual post which isn't a random meme or a comment on talismancer's posts.

Recently I've been watching Mission: 2110, which in a nutshell is a futuristic version of Raven. The rough plot outline is that humanity built robots ("Roboids") to help them, travelled to the stars, explored the cosmos, and generally did what you'd expect humanity to achieve in the medium future. Unfortuantly, something somewhere went horribly wrong, the robots turned on humanity, and wiped out everyone in yuor typical robot uprising scenario.

Enter Caleb. He's the last of the resistance, hiding out on the container ships that form Futuregate, and it's up to him to defeat the Roboids. He can't do it on his own, so what he does is build a time machine to summon recruits from his past (2010, our present) to help him out. They have to complete challenges, earn biorods, compete for limited places, and eventually one will become his ultimate recruit.
