Les conquérants d'Omale

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Books ]

ISBN: 9782070462759

© Amazon.fr

Longtemps avant les événements d'Omale, les trois espèces sont en guerre. Le chef militaire des humains envoie un petit groupe à l'autre bout de l'aire humaine pour y cherche un canon à rayons chile capturée quarante ans auparavant, et l'acheminer vers un autre point de l'aire. En chemin le groupe doit réquisitionner un train nucléaire qui devra fournir l'énergie nécessaire au fonctionnement de l'arme. En même temps, un diplomate humain fait assassiner son homologue chile peu avant la rencontre périodique avec les Æzirs dans le but de forcer ces derniers à construire depuis le ciel un mur entre les aires chiles et humaines, mais l'Æzir refuse et rompt tout futur contact avec les humanoïdes. Au dessus de l'aire hodgquine, une plaque spatiale destinée à créer une zone froide et altitude pour un petit groupe de Hodgquins mutants dérive et cause un hiver glacial pendant plusieurs mois. Un groupe de géographes humains rencontre par hasard les Hodgquins mutants rescapés, les conduit vers le plus haut sommet d'Omale. En échange ces derniers contactent les Æzirs afin qu'ils déplacent la plaque, rendant à la région son climat tempéré. Finalement, le groupe de soldats atteint sa destination et comprend le but (alors inconnu) de la mission : détruire les nefs chiles qui bombardent la ville, se croyant à l'abri à cause de leur haute altitude.

Iron Sky: The Coming Race

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



A nuclear war has rendered Earth inhospitable, and only a few humans have survived on the moon base, with no means of leaving as they lack the energy source to power the spaceship built by Obi. One day, a small ship with a few survivors arrive from Earth; among them hides the Moon Führer, the former commander of the base, who reveals to Obi that he's not a human but a Vril, a reptilian species who has arrived on Earth during the age of dinosaurs and had accidentally triggered the evolution of primates into humans. The Vril live below the Earth (which is hollow) and possess an infinite source of energy in the form a cup, the Graal. Obi and a few friends fly back to Earth and enter the world of the Vrils. They manage to steal the Graal, thereby collapsing the Vril society, and return to the Moon, but they are followed by the Vrils' mothership. Despite being attacked by a Vril Hitler riding a Tyrannosaurus inside the moon base, they manage to use the Graal to power Obi's ship and fly away. They are chased by the Moon Führer aboard the Vrils' ship, but eventually manage to get rid of it and fly to Mars (where a Soviet mars base awaits them).
