My first attempt to rework the opening of Messiah Reborn, dating from early 2005. The ten pages of this version cover the first three and a half sides of the original. Most of the extension is in the departure from London.
The third version shifted the events of MR forward by fifty years, to make room for World War Three in between. It also switched the nations involved around - the enemy is now the USA, while Project Messiah travel to Canada. Significantly, Alice has vanished from the team - she reappears instead as a Lieutenant-General in the Canadian armed forces. This version runs up to just before the attack on the White House (equivalent to the attack on the embassy in the original), but with some jumps.
Carrying over the revised setting and expanding immensely on it, this is the most comprehensive rewrite I did. It runs far past the others, reaching the introduction of the Project Messiah (no longer Second Messiah) Psychic Corps - approximately two-thirds of the way through the original narrative, introducing a whole set of new characters along the way. It actually runs to more than twice the length of the original - nearly 40,000 words - but is still far from complete. If I ever pick up this story again, this is where I'll start from.
