Synopsis/Details: 

Episode 10 of 12.

Leiza Durward is a BITCH.

She's also San Zedak's only hope of saving his ship and crew and, ultimately, the galaxy.

When her selfish actions cause her to become trapped in a time loop for thirty-eight years, she is forced to become a better person - somewhat unwillingly - in order to escape.

If you like crazy sci-fi with "out there" characters, satisfying plot twists, and extreme attention paid to continuity -- you'll love this.

I decided to write episode 10 super-early for 3 reasons:
1. It is mostly self-contained and doesn't require any outside knowledge of the series. This makes it easy to incorporate into the larger series arc as I write the rest of the series.

2. I felt inspired and wrote it at random, so 'this is the right time' had a lot to do with it.

3. I'm aiming to make the series as accessible as possible. So really each story should be able to stand on its own, since each story has a different main character and setting. They should be enhanced by being watched in order, but it shouldn't be necessary to watch them in order. That's my goal.

The Writer: A. D. Sampson

I'm Alexander David Sampson. I'm from Sussex in the UK and I'm 12,352 days old at the time of writing this. I've been writing screenplays for more than ten years (as a hobby). I spent several years working part-time which afforded me the time needed to focus on developing my skills. I lean towards Fantasy, Comedy, and Science-fiction, but all of my scripts contain elements of other genres. I also really dig the Horror aesthetic. I focus on building deep, cohesive worlds to play around in with my characters. Everything connects to everything else in some way, every character has a counter-character, and every decision has reason behind it. I sometimes write backwards, starting at the end and...
