different adventures awaited James during the remainder of his time there, ending in the
destruction of a former enemy from the past, another lightning knight known as Terminator.
This new adversary , who seemed to have traveled from another dimension, tried to destroy
both KK and Doom by attempting to destroy RIFTS Earth itself. This is a feat that would
seem unfathomable, but with the aid of one of Dooms previous creations, the starship
Hitship-1, Terminator was able to take control of the CMAs satellite defense system
and put forth a plan to use the system to cause mass destruction of the earth. In a
shocking and unanticipated move, KK and Doom where able to foster a temporary truce
between the planets most powerful military governments and kingdoms, from the Coalition
States to Splynncryths Atlantis, in an attempt to divert Terminators forces
attention while James and Keith destroyed the Hitship Within hours, KK and Doom found them
selves on familiar ground as they broke into the star craft, with their pal Assmunch, and
proceeded to render the space craft useless and send Terminator back to his alternate
dimension. With the downfall of Terminator, KK and Doom became even more infamous or
famous, depending on which part of the world you where in,. After excepting a few dozen
new toys from relieved kingdoms, KK and James left for home. [end
---------Passage of time-------
During the next 5 years inside their home dimension, James, as well as Keith, worked hard to bring their home planetary system, the Dark Sun System, back up to par. During their dimensional travels, 86 years had past. With out the creators being present, the system fell into an era of mistrust and political chaos. The home worlds of Mettalica-4 and Jewelle (James and Keiths home worlds, respectively) remained united in the struggle to keep order through out the system, while smaller colonized worlds began to seek independence from the home worlds. Influences from other systems, seeing the lack of leadership, began to take advantage this political bickering offered. PURISTS OF EARTH (anti-alien human alliance from earth) to renegade ISM nations (even though the republic of ISM had signed a peace treaty in the year 2418, 3 years before KK and Doom disappeared, there were a few nations that broke away from the republic and still active) many outside governments pounced on the opportunity. Many made attempts to sway the fledgling Dark Sun colonial worlds away from the control of the home worlds and bring them into their fold. When KK and Doom made their surprising return in 2494 AD, the system was on the brink of civil war. Warships from both the United League of Colonial Worlds (ULCW) and the Lightning Knight Alliance (Jewelle and Metallica-4) were heading towards a conflict out side the barren moon of Gallanigher. Enraged at this whole matter, KK and Doom called back their warships and made a compromise between the sides. The ULCW and LKA would merge, creating the Counsel of the Dark Sun, or CDS.
During the 5 minute peace talks, outlying system satellites picked up an armada of Stormgaurde(largest renegade ISM nation) war ships heading for the Dark Sun System. To James, it was easy to see the full picture of what was going on and relayed his thoughts to the ULCW flagship, DSS Sabretooth. With the understanding that the Stormgaurde used the ULCWs anger towards the LKA as an attempt to severely weaken both sides militarys, Captain Rodger Rhineheardt agreed to join forces with the LKA to push the Stormgarde out of the sector for good Once the battle was over, the Treaty of Gallanigher was signed and the CDS became a reality. With the passage of the next 5 years, James worked hard to rebuild the out dated computer and technological infrastructures of the entire system. He even made attempts to bring the aspect of PPE energy into this dimension. This became a reality when the Hitships larger cousin, the HITSTAR was created. 2x the size of its ancestor, this star ship were powered completely on PPE energy that it could draw off its internal PPE Battery engines
During these 5 years, his eldest son, Jerrod, grew up. At the young age of 10, the child has mastered the art of drafting and free hand drawing. Unlike his father, though, the young Bourne has little aspirations for technological career, rather, the life of a free lance artist. Katrina Bourne, to the dismay of James, has supported and encouraged Jarrods artistic development.
