We’ve been counting down the days until we launch our pilot episode!
We created a Top 10 list to help us pass the time.
Hopper – A time-traveling vehicle. Can carry up to 3 people. It’s smaller on the inside. The latest model is the Stream Blazer 6000, 3535…The model Pike and Trident have been assigned – the Stream 1200, 3506.
Number 9 :
A communication device that is pretty nifty for the year 3535. It allows for Pike and Trident to talk to their boss, Dr. Narsil, can locate the hopper, play Bejeweled 3K, and can order coffee in over 6 million forms of communication.
Hopping – Traveling in time requires the ability to “hop”. Taking off from one time period to another. Usually requires a Hopper. The ability to Hop was discovered in 3134 by physicist Dr. Drake Henson, after an accident that happened while playing Virtual Hopscotch with fellow scientists.
Below, an example of what can happen while playing Virtual Hopscotch.
Oofda – The sound of an angry viking. Usually signals immediate danger. Be prepared for battle. Or maybe just run.
Trident’s favorite way to antagonize Pike:
Sneak up behind Pike and scare her while she sets up an exhibit. She gets so focused, she leaves herself open. Pike just BEGS to be scared.
NOTE: Often leads to battle.
Pikes Favorite Historical Era-
The Elizabethan Era. She is a huge geek about Shakespeare’s play and facts about the Spanish Armada. Of Sir Francis Drake and privateers, Sir Walter Raleigh and the mystery of the Roanoke colony. Pike’s greatest wish is for a tall ship and a star to sail her by.
Trident loves to listen to The Ride of the Valkyries in the morning before she goes into work with Pike. It gives her a great sense of purpose for the day, and she feels ready for anything.
While Pike likes to study the cold, hard facts, Trident likes to study the ancient storytelling methods. She‘s particularly fascinated by the 20th and 21st centuries stories.
One of her favorite shows to study is Vikings from a History Channel. Ragnar Lothbrok! Lagertha! Rollo! She’s addicted to watching the show over and over again.
She believes it has given her great insight to visiting the Vikings.
Conflict Management is the practice of being able to identify and handleconflicts sensibly, fairly, and efficiently. Since conflicts in a business are a natural part of the workplace, it is important that there are people who understand conflicts and know how to resolve them.
Pike and Trident use a lot of Conflict Management at work.
She sometimes can’t let things go if they’re not called by their proper name, or that you might not know the difference between Chartreuse and Yellow.
This often leads to debates with fellow employees, but most especially, Trident who just doesn’t seem to care about minute details. She often says things like, “Close enough,” and it drives Pike a little crazy.
Pike and Trident is a comedic adventure set in the year of 3535. They are two curators from the museum of Now and Then, who get on each others nerves. Disagreements are solved with battle. Traveling is done by ‘Hopping.’ Cars have become an ancient relic. Pike and Trident screw up an exhibit while arguing, losing valuable artifacts, and they must recover them throughout history by traveling to the past to prevent an epic historical disaster – that is – if they can learn to get along.
Think of it as a Warehouse 13 meets Rizzoli and Isles meets Doctor Who!
