To save themselves from the Mediocratists, The Sci-Fi Republic strikes the proverbial “deal with the devil” to unleash a massive wave of Porn clones onto the Holonet.

Through a series of manipulations, the evil Darth Mainstream becomes Emperor, and many Genre writers become broke and destitute thanks to a traitor in their midst.

 

Episode 4: A New Subgenre

As Emperor Mainstream brings his nefarious plans to fruition by building the dreaded Joykiller, a spark of hope arrives in a young Genre writer named Lon Spacewriter when he joins R.A.M (Rebels Against Mediocrity).

 

Episode 5: Literary Mainstream Fights Back

The Mainstream Empire strikes back against R.A.M., and nearly destroys the sense of wonder in fiction for all time. Lon Spacewriter escapes their clutches via the help of Self-Publishing.

 

Episode 6: Return of the Space Opera

In a desperate countermove, the surviving rebels unleash Star Wars and Serenity onto the Galactic Holoscreen, igniting a frenzied hunger for all things Space Opera. Emperor Mainstream is destroyed by his own right hand man, who reveals himself to be the nerdy father of Lon Spacewriter, the long-believed-dead H. G. Wells.
