Redemptions and Second Chances: Nathaniel Miller & Erwin Stevens Authors' Notes: This uses a REAL Non-Fiction Timeline, with Actual, Semi-Fictional, and complete Fictional Events. It is to show the differences if time indeed could be changed as portrayed to already live lifetimes. No offense is intended to the portrayal of actual living or deceased persons in this story. No names have been changed in any form to those living and deceased persons for all intensive purposes, for complete accuracy. Warning: Contains mature and adult situations: Not for younger readers. Inspired by "Imzadi" -- by Peter David. N.A Miller It is the year 2053, a far time in the future. Earth has changed a lot in the decades that has past, a semi-reserved peace has settled upon the land, with some skirmishes in the Middle-East region. Otherwise humankind has started to come together as one to embrace a bright future as a people. Technology was being put away for war, and used for peace, and countries started to work together helping each other, rather than annihilating each other in war. It would be a remarkable sight that the Earth nations would finally put away their differences and help each other in peace. The world had taken its first sigh of relief after decades of turmoil. However, it was one person who had lived over seventy-five years that had not been happy for the last sixty plus years, having missed someone dear to him for a long time, and during the transitions of time into another decade. He had joined the time observation group, as an observer, his mission to traverse time in which he could observe and learn from the centuries past, trying to keep busy. The old man had done several missions in the last few years, having seen many times and places, deciphering the transport system of an ancient civilization from which they breached time and space. He had joined with the intention of hoping that something would backfire in their observation of time, and he would be killed, meeting his maker. However, it never happened. As he stood many a time in front of the portal, that he often wondered if he himself could change time for the better, instead of observing. He had that ability to intervene if he was allowed to, but the rules still stood that no one from the future would be allowed to interfere with events that had already happened. He stared at the gateway in silence, and he thought of fifty plus years ago and someone dear to him, and wondered if he could change time to return his lost love to him by changing history. "I have seen enough of history and Star Trekô where it might work." He murmured, "I wonder..." The gateway is a typical type, shaped in a circle that crackles as a silver and blue energy from which he stepped through into time itself when he had a mission. The Major was also reminded of Star gate SG-1 from TV a long time ago, and grimaced that this ancient culture was Egyptian, and found inside under the largest Pyramid. A funny but very ironic coincidence despite the seriousness of their research and now protected now deep inside the underground sands of Area 51 out in the Nevada Desert, like so much of the technology gathered from space aliens had been recovered. Major Miller's missions before, using the gate, was to observe history with his team, but being seventy-five, he could just give a damn too. The pain ran deep for something else, a hole in his life after losing his second wife to cancer at fifty, leaving him alone for the next twenty-five years. Nathaniel had joined the squad to observe history, trying to keep busy after she had passed, and had seen a lot in his travels. He had jumped many timelines into history, hoping oblivion take him, but something seemed to be nagging at him. "Get off your ass and do something to better for yourself." A voice echoed in his head.
