    Lightbulb another out break

    with all this talk about the measles out break, it made me wonder if there is going to be another out break on WD, we had pleurisy, back at the prison, what about a mumps, measles and rubella out break, and the only way to treat is to either find or make some sort of vaccine, and Eugene has some idea, but he doesn't know enough about it to make one, so they need to either find a doctor that can make it , or find the military supply of vaccines, or go to u.s.a.m.r.d and get the vaccines they have in long term storage.

    It would be realistic, I think, for them to have to deal with multiple outbreaks of infectious diseases in a post-vaccine world.

    But for a TV show? I think it would be boring for them to retread a story they've already done once.

    maybe, but there is a way for them to do that and have it still be fresh, they could send out teams going every where looking for vaccines, and in one place they find a group that felt they should behave like it is the early 1600's they have an old country club that has ben turned in to, what could be a serfdom with a a REAL king, and his magician is the kings adviser, some one who is forced to make poisons and other things like that, the magician is addicted to drugs and if he isn't allowed to make the drug he needs he would go in to detox and die, so he NEEDS to make the drug or he is dead.

    the other team goes to the library of congress to find books on medicine so they can find out how to make a vaccine, there they find a group of librarians doing their jobs and trying to preserve the knowledge of man and sending teams out across the country to depositories of knowledge so the human race won't fall in to another dark age, but there is a psychopath that wants the information to build atomic bombs, he has the necessary parts, but he can't figure out how to put then together, so he is trying to get the original notes openheimer used to make the first bombs so he can destroy all life everywhere, and let nature start over like it was intended to with out the human mistake nature made.

    the last team goes to u.s.a.m.r.d , there they find the facility full operational, with food medicine supplies, every thing they need to keep running, but the head guy will not let them leave because they know where they are, and they are held there to be used as test subjects for the cure to the plague that killed the world, OR DID IT, just as the last of the team goes under the needle the base gets a delivery from a fleet of helicopters bringing fuel, food , engine parts for tanks,ammunition and information, the helicopters are unmarked, but they hear someone talking with an accent, an Australian accent.

    there are so many ways this could go.

    Wouldn't be pretty... but even things like dysentery and tuberculosis should have popped up by now.

    I don't think making a vaccine would be terribly useful in an actual epidemic? Bit late of immunology when it's already running through the camp/s.

    Now that there's multiple groups, it adds the drama of quarantine... and fear of each other...

    "The War Games - In 10 Minutes" • "Announcement of Jon Pertwee's death" •
    and lots more!

    it would depend, if the kingdom were a quarantined area, because the equipment is breaking down it would need repair and they move all the unessential personnel out to hilltop, then the out break happened, the ones left behind at the kingdom would be the ones to go looking for medicines and medical help, once they are vaccinated they could come back to help the others, BUT there are ones like the whisperers who have gone insane and who try to prevent the help from reaching them, a Muslim terrorist who thinks that this is gods will on the west as punishment for... bla bla bla, you know the rest, but then as a another group of muslim,jewish,Christian and hindu medical people who have gathered together aboard an abandoned super tanker and have docked it in Norfolk, to provide fuel for where they have ben using the USS COMFORT as a high tech research facility to do work on a cure for the plague and to find other medical and scientific people as a sort of think tank to keep the knowledge of man kind from dying out and entering a new dark age.
