Somebody please critique my idea, i'm on a "try to create an original series" kick and with so many of the good ideas taken, it's really hard to think of an original theme for a Tv show. My idea is called Kingdom of the Stars Plot: For over a thousand years, the stars have hovered over our fair sky. So bright that you feel you can touch them, but so far away that such an act is impossible. Over the years, mankind has studied these stars and noticed that a collection of stars often mass together. So much so, that they almost form shapes shapes of animals, people and even things. But this was just for means of stories and fantasy, or was it? The truth is, there’s a reason why these stars are so close together. Many eons ago, there were no stars, save the ones large enough to accommodate what the people of Earth would call; Solar Systems. Then, there came beings known as Celestial Wraiths. They began to harness their internal cosmic energy and created spheres of pure energy. These spheres became what are now known as stars. This weakened them, but as the eons passed, the wraiths began to have a feeling common among artists. The desire to see their art come alive. While some artists don’t take this feeling so far. The Wraiths bring about more of their cosmic energy and actually make every constellation they’ve ever created, come alive. What’s more, they actually create a realm for their creations to call home. Thus, the Kingdom of the Stars was born on that day. The wraiths originally sought to reign over their “children” themselves, but their monumental efforts drained not only their power, but much of their life force as well. They knew they could no longer remain as corporeal beings and they decide to take a new dormant form. Every wraith to ever exist began to circle a massive planet known as Saturn and they transformed into the rings that circle it to this day. Meanwhile, in their absence, one of their constellations, named Orion the hunter, became the ruler of this kingdom of stars. For many years, none of this has mattered, until now. For you see, while Orion has ruled this kingdom benevolently and his subjects have become well versed in matters of both science and sorcery. Evil was near and what’s more, it is preparing. One being has always resented Orion’s position and seeks it for himself, that being is Draco the dragon. Draco has been searching for a way to overthrow Orion, be it by means of magic or technology. But so far, he has found nothing capable of defeating even Orion’s dogs; Canis Major and Canis Minor, let alone the hunter himself. Until one day, the evil reptile learned what happened to the “Ancient Star Makers” and considers the possibility that some on the Celestial Wraiths’ power may still reside within these rings. With that power, Draco’s ambitions would be assured. So much so, that the idea even entices two other constellational creatures; Scorpio and Cancer. With their aid, Draco reaches Saturn and attempts to use a device of his own design (a long pole forged from an asteroid, that harnesses both scientific suction and mystical drain to siphon energy from almost anything) to drain all the supposed power of Saturn’s rings into it, which he intends to absorb for himself later on. But something went horribly wrong; there was much of the wraith’s cosmic energy still in the rings of Saturn, too much power. So much that the pole overloaded and caused a cosmic anomaly, one that actually caused the rings of Saturn separate from the planet and scatter across the universe. Orion soon felt this transaction had occurred and sent for one of the wisest of constellational beings; Ursa the bear (the Big dipper). He tells her that this matter requires a group, immediately. So he commands her to seek out as many Constellational beings as she can to fix this matter. You see, when the rings separated from Saturn, there was an effect in the cosmic spectrum. If the rings aren’t found and returned to Saturn within 1½ year’s time, the planet itself will implode and then explode. Since Saturn’s size is second only to Jupiter, an explosion of that magnitude will literally rip apart half the universe, which will cause the other half to slowly fall into oblivion. Understanding this fully, Ursa sets out and locates five extraordinary Constellations who she feels are perfect for this assignment. They are Aquila the eagle, Aries the Ram, Leo the lion, Valerie the fox (Vulpecula) and Lupus the Wolf. At first Orion is reluctant to recruit these five, but knowing what is at stake, he allows them to become “the Star Sentries”. With that, Orion commissions them to locate all 14 Saturn rings. To do this, he grants them access to the most sacred treasure in the realm; The Libra Scale. The Libra scale is a scale that can actually act as compass to each of the rings and lead the Sentries right to them. It has hidden powers too, but only one as wise as Ursa can truly use them. However, the Sentries are not the only ones out to find the rings. Draco is also out to find them, not for the universe’s safety, but to continue what he started and drain them of their powers. And it’s not just Cancer and Scorpio helping him, the evil dragon will often recruit other constellational beings to assist him in his plans. Now the race is on to find the rings and retrieve them. In the hands of five animals, lies the power of the cosmos and the galaxy’s future. What do you think, does it sound too much like another show? I have 2 other ideas: 1. One is about a pair of scientists trapped on a island that was once populated by an advanced civilization, but is now home to a variety of bizarre creatures. Now the scientists are trying to discover exactly what happened to this civilization and study this new plethera of brand new species. But are frequently being attacked by a secret military movement out to steal the secrets for themselves. 2. Another is about a young Native American boy who is sent on a vision quest by his tribe's shaman and is guided by a spiritual eagle to learn the secrets of his tribe's Totem Pole. What do you think?
