Cleopatra Vs Frankenstein - Copyright October 2023, Cleaner Ocean Foundation







John Storm and Blue Shield donated Cleopatra's mummy to Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities, for eventual display at the Grand Egyptian Museum, coming from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. 


The impending check up, cast a shadow over their trip to Cairo. John and Cleopatra were assured that the International Medical Center (IMC) in El Shorouk city, is one of the largest and best equipped tertiary health care hospitals in the Middle East. They docked the Swann, and checked into a hotel for a couple of nights. Cleopatra changed into a light dress, sunglasses, and a hat. John was ready to go, after a shower. Their first port of call, they took a taxi to the Egyptian Museum.

Cleopatra entered the museum and walked around its halls. She saw statues, paintings, jewelry, and artifacts from ancient Egypt. She felt a connection with them as if she belonged there, and should be part of the exhibit. John remained silent, watching his new friend soaking up her past.

Cleopatra reached the section where her mummy was displayed. She saw a glass case that contained a wrapped corpse with a gold sign that said “Cleopatra VII Philopator, Queen of Egypt (69-30 BC)”. It sent shivers running down her spine.

She stared at the case and felt a strange tingling sensation in her chest. She saw images of sand dunes and chariots in her mind. She caught a waft of the Nile, and the sight of her royal barge, then felt the calming motion of sailing.

She felt like she was looking at herself.

She felt like she was looking at her past.

She felt like she was living out her destiny, and that this was meant to be. Her Kismet.

She smiled and whispered: “Hello, me.”


John caught her words, responding: "Hello, you.



She stared at the case and felt a strange tingling sensation in her chest. She saw images of sand dunes and chariots in her mind. She caught a waft of the Nile, and the sight of her royal barge, then felt the calming motion of sailing.



Looking at herself in the museum display about her life and tomb, she could almost feel the motion of Cleopatra's barge on the river Nile.



Professor Dr Victor Krafenstein is a distant relative of the infamous Baron Victor Frankenstein, the mad scientist who created a monstrous creature from dead body parts in the 1800s. Victor VI inherited his distant relative’s passion for science, but not his madness. He was a brilliant geneticist who lectured at a prestigious research institute in Switzerland; EHT University, in Zurich.


Cleopatra was a curvaceous, charming young woman with an extremely high IQ. She looked exactly like Cleopatra in her prime, and dangerously seductive. She had inherited her personality and talents as well. She was curious, adventurous, ambitious, and fatally attractive. She wanted to see the world for herself. She wanted to visit Egypt and see its pyramids, temples, and tombs. She wanted to meet other people and learn from them. She wanted to experience life and love, and find out about herself.












SCENE 1. Cleopatra's tomb lay lost for centuries. Then one day a shift in the tectonic plates triggered a tremor off the coast of Alexandria, causing alarm in Paris. (Flashback: The destruction of Thonis & Alexandria by a tsunami, sinking the great civilization and port in 365 AD.)


SCENE 2. As an agent of Blue Shield, John Storm, surveys Egypt's coast off Alexandria, finds Cleopatra's tomb, verified using the Ark and Hal, keeping location a secret, pending salvage and Blue Shield site protections.


SCENE 3John reads a letter from Cleopatra to Mark Antony from Cleopatra’s mausoleum, 30 BC, the combined suicide of Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra, a death wish love pact. 


SCENE 4. William Bates auctions his CyberCore Genetica nano-super computer. Secretly purchased by the wealthy Professor Krafenstein, via an anonymous sealed bid.


SCENE 5. A team of European scientists, including Franco Francisco, are gathered together and funded by the wealthy Baron as cloning technology champions, regardless of potential illegality or ethical consideration. Though, Replication and gene manipulations treatments are held to be legal by the cohort.


SCENE 6. As part of their human enhancement regime, ingredients of the CRISPR virus, a bacterial DNA Cas9 enzyme delivery system, that allows precisely targeted DNA enhancement in adult subjects, is developed as cousin technology. The team realise that this could form the basis of a cure for cancer.


SCENE 7. Charley Temple alerts John Storm to the consequences of the joining of dots of the technology that Professor Krafenstein and his partners are working on. She is being fed information from, and nurturing contacts at the ETH university in Zurich. With Sam Hollis being in contact with Colonial athletes in attendance. Some of which have given blood samples, in connection with the Baron's research.


SCENE 8. John is courted by Jack Mason, purporting to represent the USA, asking for his help in their investigations into cyber crime, and technology that might one day pose a threat to international stability.


SCENE 9. Storm is asked by Professor Krafenstein to relinquish a small Cleopatra tissue sample. The carrot is that their cohort will share their DNA archive, to add to John's collection. 


SCENE 10. John relents, persuaded by Blue Shield. The knowledge transfer (swapsie) proves to be irresistible to John.


SCENE 11. Having taken delivery of a sample of Cleopatra's DNA, Professor Krafenstein perfects his replication technique, after one or two costly mistakes.


SCENE 12. The scientists develop a prototype biological implant, an interface for the human brain, which they call BioCore™. This flexible microchip communicates wirelessly with the CyberCore Genetica, and from there to the internet. They are streets ahead of a system developed by Elon Musk, some years earlier.


SCENE 13. The Birth. Replication work proceeds, with Cleopatra grown and her brain programmed (conditioned) with her past, to include simulation of her synapse firing sequence, based on the fact she spoke nine languages, and was a mathematician and an accomplished political and military strategist. Other elements are included to soften the culture shock, as the reincarnated queen re-enters life in the 21st century, the prophesy comes true.


SCENE 14. John requests a visit to see the progress for himself, but is given the brush off, and shown a facility that does not seem to have all the equipment necessary to have recreated Cleopatra. Then he is denied access to the subject with various excuses, that do not gel. His suspicions are aroused, and he investigates further with help from Dan (hacking) and Hal.


SCENE 15. Charley persists with her own investigations, agreeing to meet with John, where she thinks the real work is going on convenient to the ancient port of Genoa, Italy. She is captured, and John has to effect a rescue, with some background help from the CIA's Jack Mason. During the struggle to overpower Charley's captors, John is injected with an experimental CRISPR virus. Dan manages to make off with the CyberCore Genetica and Biocore, equipment, plus a download of all the experimental files. Jack Mason turns a blind eye, at the time, biding his time.


SCENE 16. From the recovered data, Dan and Hal work out that Cleopatra is being repatriated in a secure facility in Rome, where the former queen had visited with Julius Caesar in 46BC. John raids their sanctuary just outside the city, rescuing/freeing Cleopatra in the process, with Interpol questioning all the wrong people, on suspicion of kidnap. Cleopatra expresses a wish to be with John Storm, who she instinctively trusts implicitly, leaving Interpol and Blue Shield, little choice in the matter. And Jack Mason with a problem. He was hoping to acquire Cleopatra in all the confusion. But Cleopatra reveals that Dr Krafenstein had given her, her freedom. She was free to leave when she felt ready.


SCENE 17. Jack Mason continues to plot to part John Storm from the CRISPR technology, and kidnap Cleopatra on grounds of homeland security, looking to take control of the replication technology. As the US representative, he talks John and Cleopatra into the replicant queen having a check up at Uncle Sam's expense at a private hospital in Egypt, to coincide with the unveiling of the Cleopatra VII mummy exhibits in Cairo and Giza. Though a disingenuous ruse, Cleopatra agrees, just to please John. She is curious to see what her own mummy looks like as an exhibition of her past glory.


SCENE 18. Storm is double crossed by Jack Mason, who spirits Cleopatra overseas to the secure US facility at Guantánamo Bay. Way off the beaten track, and extremely well guarded. Such military location eliminating any chance of a rescue.


SCENE 19. Despite the obstacles, John rescues Cleopatra from Guantánamo Bay in a daring night raid.


SCENE 20 CIA, covertly try to terminate the Swann and crew, including Cleopatra, who is now a witness to their evils.


SCENE 21. John does a deal with US President Lincoln Truman, Jack Mason is chastised.







The cure for cancer is the Holy Grail of medical achievement, a Crusade that is within our grasp.
