Welcome one and few...

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Topher Francis. I'm a 26 year-old Canuck living in the nation's capital. In short, I'm a dreamer. At the age of 3 my mom sat me down in front of the TV when Star Trek: The Next Generation first aired it's pilot, "Encounter at Farpoint". I didn't stand a chance. I was hooked. The possibility of a bright and happy future with all kinds of cool toys and gadgets with people who have blue skin or green skin just got right into that little yet-to-be-jaded mind that still thought the world was roses-and-happiness and blossomed. 
So what have you learned about me thus-far? 1) I'm a geek. 2) I love the idea of a bright future and I hate how screwed up our world is. 3) Some of my sentences border on run-ons and can go toe to toe with some of Tolkien's.
It is my sincerest hope that you've been reading this with the light-hearted, almost whimsical tone in which it's being written.

Enough about me, though. Onto your big question: What is this Google Site I've stumbled on? Simply put, it's my brain on "paper". As I said, I'm a dreamer.
I've got sooo many thoughts and ideas floating around in my head that I need to get them out for various reasons including (but not limited to) making space for new ones; getting the one's I've got straightened out; getting second, third, fourth opinions about my ideas; and hopefully gaining momentum for some of my ideas should they prove fruitful.

What will you find here? Well, there are certainly two or three major projects I've got in mind that I wanna get out. One of them, a needing-a-new-title sci-fi series and the other is a barely-born brain child fantasy crime drama.
For the sci-fi series, I'll be hopefully be creating a site that's built like an archives and blog. For the technical stuff there'll be archive-like entries filled with what technical info I've dreamed up or researched - if any of you are more knowledgeable about physics or anything and find errors, I'd LOVE to hear about them - historical information about this future and its constituents that I'm creating. The blogs will have story details which will essentially be turned into episodes if I get REALLY lucky. 
The next section will be dedicated to my crime drama. I'm not sure what direction it will take, only a few ideas for characters and a basic premise. I'd definitely love input about it.
Updates should be happening weekly, sometime during the weekend. They'll either be with content or with design changes as I get artwork done to add or figure out this thing better.
Anyhoo... It has gotten late and I should be getting to bed. Check this space for further updates.
