What would you think of this story set up in a screwed up alternate history?

03 October 2017 - 10:26 AM

The bombs that failed to detonate at Columbine detonate and a notorious school shooting is now the deadliest terrorist attack in US history, topping Oklahoma City.

If this was a cheesy teen TV movie or novel the tragedy would be fictional set in a fictional school that is not Columbine and school shooters who are not named Harris and Klebold out of respect.

The nanny state politicians and activists come down hard on pop culture. Pop culture is toned down and set back a decade.

Mass Effect still happens although it is a popular book or comic book series rather than a video game. If that doesn't happen Casey Hudson and Drew Karpyshyn concoct a space opera that is set in an optimistic future where humanity has united under freedom and democracy and has became part of an intergalactic community full of aliens. The main character would basically be an All American military leader with a cool spaceship and badass crew who is trying to save the galaxy from an ancient threat. A military spaceship captain inspired by Captain Kirk and John Sheridan.

In America's school's "be a nerd so that you'll succeed as an adult" would be replaced by "be a jock because nerds are dangerous."

The circa is 2005-06. During the release of the first Mass Effect novel/comic or Casey Hudson's optimistic military space opera.

In one such American High School fans of geek stuff have been driven underground and scared to admit they love geek stuff like DnD or computer RPGs.

Then one day an athletic, intelligent, handsome, and compassionate military or JROTC cadet who is a fan of the Mass Effect/Optimistic military space opera and Honor Harrington stories shows up and amazes everyone.  He shows the popular people that people who enjoy geek stuff are normal people and not to be feared. He also stands up to the anti intellectual faculty. They can't do anything because he comes from a powerful military family.

 

He graduates with a 4.0 GPA and is accepted into a military academy.

He ends up making geek culture like DnD more acceptable although he is only a fan of military space adventure. He receives the Medal of Honor during combat in a peacekeeping operation in Africa and ends up becoming one of the first humans on Mars.

What would you think of this cheesy teen story set up in a screwed up alternate history?

Also in this timeline Mass Effect ends up becoming a successful movie and/or TV series or any space opera Casey Hudson and Drew Karpyshyn created in this timeline ends up becoming a successful movie and/or TV show.

find this disgusting! These successful young women shouldn't be pressured into a conservative lifestyle!

A woman who lacks ambition is a big turn off for me! I don't want children! I want money and hedonism!

I would love to introduce these girls to a life of child free fun, international travel, career opportunities, and hedonism!

Old people need to start caring about the future of humanity!

I think private prison CEOs should pay for programs in the inner city that fight the glorification of gang culture and anti intellectualism as well as promote science, technology, and cool looking spaceships!

These old people do not care for a better future for humanity! They need a good space opera!

How controversial would a teen show with this plot be?

A teen transfers to this high income area school. He is caucasian and comes from a middle class politically center left military family. He is really idealistic, intelligent, and athletic. His character is inspired by Captain America, Commander Shepard, Babylon 5's John Sheridan, and Ender Wiggin. He is a member of a military cadet program like JROTC that meets off campus. There is a presidential election going on with candidates similar to Clinton and Trump. He speaks out against the Trump like candidate but stops short of supporting the Clinton like candidate. The popular students and even some of the faculty terrorize the American Muslim students with the rest of the student body and rest of the teachers either too scared or too apathetic to do something. The Muslim students are portrayed as nice, liberal, and tolerant. Our brave military cadet inspires the school and rest of the teachers to fight against the bullying and in the end the popular people lose their power.
