I don't want to give away the entire concept, because it may or may not end up being important to the plot, but I guess it's about time I let a detail slip that wasn't covered in the synopsis. As you may have guessed, the e-mail was regarding the science behind solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs). I'll let you make of that what you will, but trust me when I say I won't do anything so stupid as what 2012 did with it.
The solar flares themselves aren't a huge aspect of the plot, but they do serve an important purpose. I think I might try to find a way to shed some light on it when I can finally get the teaser trailer together. Should be cool, plus it lets me do more research and as we all know, science is fun!
And speaking of science, I really do aim to make my story a compelling science-fiction tale, while being as true to the science aspect as I possibly can. The liberties I take will be for the sake of good, interesting story telling, not spectacle.
Well, maybe a little spectacle.
