I Have a Bad Feeling About This

I saw this on a site called Wookiepedia (click here), a wiki website for everything Star Wars, and thought it was cute. 

I may even add this line to future books in my series.

"I have a bad feeling about this."
―As Obi-Wan Kenobi's first line at the beginning when Kenobi talks to Qui-Gon Jinn onboard Saak'ak[src]

"I've got a bad feeling about this."
Anakin Skywalker at Geonosis in the arena, in reference to the approaching execution beasts[src]

"Oh, I have a bad feeling about this."
Obi-Wan Kenobi talking to Anakin Skywalker as their starfighters approach a large, closing blast door on Invisible Hand[src]

"I have a very bad feeling about this."
Luke Skywalker, when the Millennium Falcon approaches the Death Star[src]

"I've got a bad feeling about this."
Han Solo, before the walls of the trash compactor start to close in[src]

"I have a bad feeling about this."
Princess Leia, while inside the belly of the space slug, just before the mynocks appear[src]

Firefly Theme Song

I thought I would post the lyrics to the theme song for Firefly, as they too were an inspiration for my book. 

Written by: Joss Whedon
Performed by: Sonny Rhodes

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...

The Geo-politics of "Whisper in Space"

Whisper in Space takes place in our galaxy, about 200 or so years in the future.  Mankind has expanded into space, and just in time, as global war has engulfed the galaxy.

A large group of Nations, jealous of the prosperity that has been achieved by the Americans and Chinese, have banded together.  Their goals was to form one world government, so that all would share in the prosperity, and they eventually came to call this government the Nation of Earth ("NOE").  The NOE has driven the Americans and Chinese off of earth, and now controls half the galaxy. Their goal is to take over the entire galaxy, and unite everyone under their rule.  Unfortunately for them, their war against the Chinese and Americans has reached a stalemate.

The Chinese have worked hard to remain the toughest adversary for the NOE.  During their expansion into the galaxy and subsequent flight from earth, the Chinese government expanded the freedom of their people, as they simply became too big to maintain the level of control they had once had.  They are now for all intensive purposes the largest beacon of freedom and liberty in the whole galaxy.

United States
The United States has been pushed to a small corner of the galaxy, where they hold on to a small cluster of planets.  Through the development and use of superior technology, they have been able to set up a strong defense grid, and economically remain a powerhouse where capitalism prospers.  The United States is allied with China out of necessity.

The Mujahideen is the last remaining islamic extremist organization, united together in their effort to reclaim their holy land from the NOE.  They operate as lawless brigands, raiding towns and stealing what they please, like the pirates of old, while hoping to eventual gather up enough resources to be able to return to earth and drive the infidels out of their holy land.
