Nicola Rae as Stormy Tempest.
An all new Stormy Tempest release is almost ready!
We hope to have it online in just a few more days!
WOW! I’m thinking Stormy had a major upgrade for her wrist blaster! Looks very cool!
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet. EVERYTHING is upgraded!

Thank You in advanse for making it Avaiable
P S Will S.H.I.P. befeatured in this new installment?
Will S.H.I.P. be featured?
Uhhhhh…. sort of.
S.H.I.P. experiences severe technical difficulty.
S.H.I.P.is down for the count? Dang! That is bad news Stormy really is all alone and up against it
I hope I am not too far off base in these fallowing observations and conclusions but it appears (to me) that Stormy’s heroic actions,still opting to resist even though she is defeated, friendless, with every hand raised against her , and with no reasonable hope of victory.
These valiant actions are not only in the best super-heroine traditions but also put me in mind of the work of John Paul Sartre Thank you for that
I don’t think Stormy Tempest cares about French philosophy and existentialism. I think she is more proactive and believes in action!
You are right. I guess I did not explain my point very well.(I’m still very new to this this whole on line medium and am still learning how to communicate with others and to articulate my ideas)I did not intend to imply that French philosophy and existentialism are a great concern to the character.I agree with you that she is more concerned with solutions and results.
What I had in mind when I made that comment was that given her apparently hopeless situation,pursued by forces she could reasonably hope to defeat/ Stormy Tempest’s decision to fight on could be seen to represent an existential rebellion against the hopeless universe/ diabolic cosmos(as manifested by the Gorla Monks and the corrupt Space Patrol ).and in so doing she finds the freedom and strength in the very heart of darkness to stand up to these evil forces and and stand up for the collective basic dignity and humanity of the galaxy ,against these wicked forces .
Or to put it another way , with an example that is a little closer to home by fighting this” good fight ” Stormy Tempest has taken up the challenge put forth by President John F.Kennedy when he said “some … see the world as it is and say why? I see the world as it could be and say why not?
I realize I may be way off base in my observations and conclusions ,but I did think they were worth sharing I only hope I have made a coherent and plausible case.
Any way I do think it is significant that the A.C. product can spark this kind of speculation.
Jim, I was just being flippant. You have every right to your observation and it was a good one. Your statement reminded me of a situation from the British Sci/Fi comedy Red Dwarf. Our heroes encounter a planet full of androids programed to represent famous humans from history fighting a war of good against evil. The evil side is easily winning and has reduced the good side to a rag tag group of non combatants. The character Rimmer takes command of the good side and tries to whip them into shape.

Events in the Stormy movie series occur before the events that we see in her comic adventures. The idea is to show her evolving over the course of the series to become a better and more interesting hero.
At this stage Stormy herself is still trying to figure out exactly WHY she does what she does, but I don’t think she has it figured out just yet. At the start of her career she would have told you it was “her job” as a Space Patrol officer… but now she’s on her own.
Stormy is a very “in the moment” character right now. Her INSTINCTS are heroic, even if she doesn’t take the time to evaluate them. Jim could be entirely correct in his observation, though Stormy herself would probably not even be aware of it.
Responding to Mark/Dec.9th.
No worries.There is nothing wrong in being called upon to clarify/explain your views.
Thank you for the link I watched the entire series when it was first broadcast on Public Television some years ago, and I recall that scene.I remember thinking ,at the time and was reminded upon viewing this clip what an awful “leader” Rimmer was ,strutting about ,pushing his troops around (who could not fight back) and thinking his job was to come up with a plan and let his soldiers do the fighting and the dieing.Which is the exact opposite how Stormy Tempest or Ms. Victory would behave . They will always “lead from the front”.
I believe it is worth mentioning that, in spite of what Rimmer says in the clip in our real world John Paul Sarte did not flee his country after the fall of France in W.W.II Instead he remained in Paris and continued to work and write openly and did not collaborate.Also regardless of the way he was portrayed in the clip Noel Coward put himself entirely in the service of his country during the war and worked tirelessly doing what ever was asked of him.(each one sounds rather heroic I think)
Responding to John J.G.Dec.9th
I did not realize that the events depicted in the movies take place early in the character’s career.Thank you for the clarification. I really appreciate it, for now I realize that in all the upcoming productions we will be able to see Stormy grow and develop and mature mentally and spiritually as well as getting to see plenty of Slam-Bang action and fast and furious adventures. I am confident that Nicola as Stormy and you (as the writer ) are up to that challenge.
I hope I was not too far of base in my conclusions and speculations.
