0.01 \\ SPECTRE Teaser Trailer

Space exploration is lawless, dirty, and inconvenient, but that doesn't stop Rho from seeking to recover lost memories and find her place in a universe that seems hell-bent on destroying her. SPECTRE is a swashbuckling space opera about the dangers of technology and the loss of humanity as a result of its use.

[SFX: The theme music begins, a haunting, dark humming that drones in the background.]

FIRST MATE EDWARD WHITLAW: Welcome aboard the Spectre.

GARYN BEIKIRCH: How long have you been experiencing memory loss?

RHO: I… don’t know.

WARREN LEE: Now, take a deep breath through your nose. And as you do so, focus on the way it makes your chest rise.

MACIE VINCENT: Oh, good! You’ll love it here. We’re a family.

RHO: May I please leave your ship?

CAPTAIN LILLIAN DUNNE: Straight to the point. I like that. But no.

GUARD 1: That’s the thing, though, if the APB is one hundred percent truth, she didn’t even touch the thing. It just flipped into the air, slammed into a concrete column, and boom. Like she did it with her mind or something.

[SFX: The music picks up to an electronic melody with a surging arpeggio that pushes the tempo forward.]

GUARD 2: No way that’s how it happened. She’s human, right?

GUARD 1: Supposedly.

KARL AMOS: (over comms) Lift the live recall… recovery agents have approval for shoot to kill.

CICELY BENNETT: Karl, that’s–

KARL: Do it!

[SFX: Karl’s fist punches his desk and Cicely gasps.]

RHO: Am I stuck here?

GARYN: Not up to me.

RHO: (sighing) Excellent.

ANNOUNCER: Spectre, an indie sci-fi audio drama. Coming to anywhere you listen to podcasts in May of 2022. Amnesia. Telekinesis. Piracy. What’s next?

[SFX: The music fades out, punctuated by a high-tone chord that reverberates into silence.]
