The BIAlien Series
Science Fiction, Space, Action, Adventure and Romance Graphic Novels.
The BI-Alien (An alien of two worlds) graphic novel series is formally known as “THE BIALIEN TRILOGY” as of January 2011 (they are identical novels). VC Imagination Factory decided to split the original Vol I into three smaller books, increase the font size and add illustrations. The BIAlien trilogy title is still used due to previous marketing campaigns and book reviews. The BIAlien trilogy was copyright in July 2009 and published on July 20th 2010. BIAlien is a series of 10 science fiction novels written by author/art and animation director Vlane Carter. There are three additional spin off novels.
Volume I “Rise of the BIAliensapien: Human Evolved” part 1
Volume I “Rise of the BIAliensapien: Human Evolved” part 2
Volume I “Rise of the BIAliensapien: Human Evolved” part 3
Vol. II “Revenge of the Darclonians” part 1
Vol. II “Bellona’s Rebellion” Part 2
Vol. II “Galactic wars ” Part 3
Vol. III Part 1, VOL III Part 2, VOL III Part 3
Spin offs: “Andromedian Wars” mini-series. “The original BIAlien”, “Bellona chronicles”
VC Imagination Factory’s marketing strategy was to write a novel in present tense, include movie score soundtracks, include well thought out action sequences and to deliver a strong plot to bring in movie watchers, non-sci-fi readers and sci-fi readers.
“…the ingenuity behind this work, however, exceeds the average science fiction novel. This series holds incredible potential for development not only into novels, but games, comic books, and even films… …this talented author tells his amazing tale with a sense of humor. Integrated into his high-tech descriptions and scientific “jargon” are one-liners, even a touch of political comedy and social commentary…” -FOREWORD CLARION REVIEWS.
“…carter says that the book is intended to simulate the experience of watching a movie, adding that he believes it could become next Star Wars, Matrix or Star Trek series (and that he feels like George Lucas in the early ’70s)…
…to Carter’s credit, his tale has many elements that would translate well to a big budget, special effects extravaganza. The book is a fast, engrossing read—the pace never lets up for an instant. The first volume in a science-fiction series about a young man who’s abducted by benevolent aliens, bio-engineered to superhuman levels and sent back to Earth years later to stop an alien invasion…”-KIRKUS DISCOVERIES REVIEW.
“Science fiction fans unite! If the title doesn’t say it all, I don’t know what will! To preface this review, all of you naysayers out there who shake their heads at sci-fi should remember that, back in the 70’s, the names R2-D2, C3PO, Chewie…you get my point, here…were unknowns. Now they are as much a facet of popular literary culture as is Mr. Darcy. Jane Austen, Henry James, Dickens, etc., were beautiful storytellers, but sci-fi has amazingly imaginative beauty surrounding it as well. And this author, Vlane Carter, knows that for a fact…
…there are A LOT of scenes that the reader gets to experience. From the military battle with the UFO, to the alien shark attack on another planet (which is really cool, by the way), this author offers a never-ending parade of amazing creatures and locations that will, perhaps, one day be logged into popular literary culture right beside old C3PO and his little beeping buddy……There are two factions out there in America – Star Wars vs. Star Trek – and I am definitely on the side of George Lucas having the more creative concept. So hats off to this writer, Vlane Carter, who may someday join those Lucas ranks if readers and sci-fi fans everywhere band together and realize that the force really MAY be with this one.” – FEATHERED QUILL REVIEWS.
“…the bialien trilogy is not your typical sci-fi novel. Think of a comic book that uses words instead of illustrations and you might come close. One thing that the writer certainly has is imagination. It is written very visually… …you may tell by his style that Vlane is very passionate about his writing. It takes time and effort to envision and write a novel of this length without losing the energy throughout it. Bialien is his first novel, and, from his marketing material and website, certainly not his last. It is always interesting to see the first story written and how writing styles evolve from book to book. Let’s see where Volume Two takes us.” –TOP BOOK REVIEWERS (TBR).
“A Sci-Fi series set on exploring concepts of the deep future, “The Bialien Trilogy” is for the Science fiction fan who likes to be amazed at what the future holds….” – MIDWEST BOOK REVIEWS
Can humanity equally fight against an alien invasion? Vlane doesn’t think so; any alien species with the technology to travel 100’s to millions of light years to Earth would easily defeat us if there was a real attack. Humanity would not be prepared to know what to do.
So many sci-fi movies and books are based on an alien species from far away attacking and killing humans. Killing humans to use Earth for its resources is not logical for an advanced alien species. An intelligence on this level would be able to Terraform any planet the right distance from a Star. An alien species needs a purpose for attacking a semi-primitive species like humans. That is equivalent to us traveling 1000’s of miles into the middle of the desert to step on and exterminate a colony of ants. There needs to be a logical purpose for an invasion. BIAlien VOL I has a purpose and it begins with NANOMOLES.
The evil Darclonians (formerly known as Robogods) used to be an all robotic species, but have been using organic bodies for the past 150,000 years in search of the perfect host for their experiment. The robotic droids scanned millions of solar systems to find a planet the right distance from the Sun that could support life. Over 100,000 years ago a droid fired small comets filled with sextillions of Nanomoles towards Earth. Reaching the lower atmosphere, the comets had exploded and dispersed Nanomoles which sought out organic and intelligent life. Undetectable, the parasites have since been sitting in their host’s brains learning the biology and recording the human experience from generation to generation. They have been awaiting a signal from a mothership which will activate an 84 hour, three stage countdown.
The good Andromedians (from the Andromeda galaxy) needed a purpose for humans as well. They are peaceful explorers and have been in several battles with Darclonians over the years. Their dilemma is their Biomechanical bodies would be destroyed in their ships when they use Optic-warp to exit the Milky-way’s center super massive blackhole in subspace. They have been monitoring a lot of Darclonian activity in this galaxy and needed a way to investigate it. They used one of their older class ships with Artificial intelligence on it to seek out an intelligent human being on Earth, to see if the body can make it to their Galaxy in one piece. This is when Jaden Marino finds the UFO in 1996.
Jaden and the UFO were on a set course to planet Xenos (Andromedian’s home planet), they are captured by a Darclonian colony in the Andromeda Galaxy. His body was experimented on and the Darclonians realized there is some value in humans. This sets off a chain of events for Earth and a mothership is dispatched. Jaden and the ship are later rescued by an elite Andromedian team lead by BELLONA. Jaden’s adventure continues on planet Xenos (gravity tides, alien chess, gravity games and the great space race).
Part/Book 1 ends and Part 2 begins when Jaden returns to Earth. His bio-engineered body is slowly evolving into superhuman levels. His mission is to help scientist locate the Nanomole in humans and then deactivate it, before the Darclonian mothership enters broadcast range. When a Nanomole is activated and is in the correct stage, it can control a human body. It would need to sync with a Bio-parasite for a permanent takeover of the human mind (Bio-parasites are Darclonians in microbe form).
Jaden’s superhuman BIAlien body is the key to what the Darclonians are looking for to complete their 10,000 year experiment with the (DEK) Dark Energy Knights (An ultimate weapon of mass destruction). DEK’s have organic bodies underneath their Black hole particles. The Dark Energy cannot work over a robotic or electronic body, it must be organic. The Andromedian’s prototype organic Nanotechnology called Nanodrones in Jaden’s body is what the Darclonian’s have been looking for.
When Jaden returns to Earth his body must reset to Earth’s gravity and he has to develop his powers to work with Earth’s natural resources. Jaden’s body is controlled like a Star Trek Enterprise ship. The microscopic Nanodrones work in collective colonies. The quadrillions of officers around his body vote on some decisions in a democratic way (BIALIEN 101).
Humans don’t believe Jaden and he finds himself in a mental hospital. Jaden has a microscopic Artificial Intelligent friend in his mind called AI (who is his first officer). AI talks to Jaden in the area of a brain where another personality would be and is there to assist with his mission. Their first priority is to help Jaden develop his powers. Jaden’s first Homosapien evolving process is doubling his brain neurons, modifying his DNA and remove unnecessary body organs that can be replaced by Nanotechnology. [AI’s personality resembles “K.I.T.T” from Knight Rider; Jaden & AI learn a lot from each other and develop a friendship.]
Jaden is labeled the terrorist by the US and finds him going against the entire government. Some of his offense and defense powers include using: remote controlled Atom sized eyes called Nanoscanners, disrupting gravity, Atom rippers (based on plasma fusion), gravity shockwaves, forward and reverse level 2 energy shields and Nanotime. In the meantime, the Darclonians begin the 84-hour countdown with the Nanomoles. The Darclonian mothership secretly beams humans onboard from on top of tall buildings to study specific Nanomoles.
Jaden un-suspected becomes the Darclonian new lab rat. They manipulate Jaden through his emotions, pain, love and catholic religion to get what they want. He changes mentally and slowly becomes something else. Throughout part 2 and 3, Jaden rides the line between good and evil.
Born January 14th 1977 in upstate NY. Raised Catholic by both of his parents Stacey Marino and Tony Marino. He becomes suspicious of the government when his older brother Douglas mysteriously dies in the Marines during the Gulf war. 19 year old Jaden is an average suburban who discovers a UFO on his way home from college on a cold winter evening. Jaden needs to make a choice between going into an unknown spaceship and leaving his family and girlfriend, or being captured by the government who desperately wants to take the UFO to area 51.
Jaden’s background and character is developed at the end of Chapter 3.
Everything Jaden does is a test, his first test begins when he controls a UFO with his mind and goes against the entire airforce. Avoiding the death of other life forms is one of the things Andromedian Elder Mana looks for in a trustworthy leader. The decisions Jaden makes are calculated on a muiltiverse scale.
Jaden’s unique sense of humor and personality later attracts alien character Bellona to him.
Bellona is a peaceful biomechanical Andromedian warrior. She is the leader of her three alien elite team. One of the Andromedian’s EIS generation 2 ships carrying host Jaden Marino was captured by the evil Darclonians. After diplomatic neigotiations fail, Bellona’s team is sent to planet 455 to retrieve their ship and Jaden. Bellona has to enter the Darclonian’s mysterious Virtualatrix to find Jaden.
In Bellona’s previous life she used to be a carbon-based, organic life form. 69.7 thousand years ago on planet Destiny, a pregnant Bellona’s life forever changed. An attack on her primitive species made her have to decide between her faith in her God or faith in her government to advance their technology to fight against their alien invaders. BIAlien Vol II part 2 goes deep into Bellona’s past of love, betrayal, hope, faith, death, conspiracies and the Andromedian’s technological singularity.

Dr. Chan was born in Taiwan and is 25 years old in the year 2014. She is a Forensic scientist that specializes in Molecular Biology and minors in Psycology. Dr. Chan makes her first appearance in Vol I part 2 as Jaden’s replacement doctor at the Psychiatric hospital in upstate NY. Her jobs are to determine why Jaden’s DNA isn’t traceable and who he is. She’s a member of ANWO (Anti New World Order) and believes in peace, meditation, justice and standing up to the government.
Over the years Dr. Chan has experienced bad relationships with men. Her inexperience left her vurnerable to dealing with narcassist, liars, abusive and cheating men. She put her hope into a RMEC (Robotic male entertainment companion) named MAX. A RMEC was created to give single women hope on a companion that will never betray them and always be there for them. Dr. Chan later learns her RMEC companion was missing something that could never be replaced by a machine.
At first Dr. Chan thinks Jaden is crazy, but she discovers something unique about him. Jaden and Dr. Chan exchanged personal memories by means of alien technology and they learned about each other what two couples would take 20-30 years to know about each other, in just 10 minutes.
Dr. Chan’s mother died on flight 175 on September 11th 2001. This event caused her and her father leave NYC to move to Virginia.

Enormous amount of time went into researching the science and technology to the BIAlien series: Over 2000 Google webpages, dozens of research books, 100’s of science/technology magazines, and 100’s of science television shows were watched to make the science as accurate as possible. Optic-warp is based off fiber optic and quantum mechanics technology. DEK (Dark Energy Knights) are based off Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Exotic Matter, Black holes and the God Particle theory. Other science/technologies used in the novel: Nanotechnology, Nanobots, plasma fusion, string theory, Technological Singularity, neutrinos, black holes, wormholes, FMRI technology, Nanomaterials, Nanotubing, protein folding and evolving the human with nanotechnology (see BIAlien 101 HUMAN BODY SCIENCE for info on how BIAlien evolves the human body to the next level).
Future Green Technology
Dozens of future green technologies were used in the series: Underwater wave farms, Global Carbon Sequesters, Jellyfish wind Turbines, Windmill turbines and plasma fusion,
Shadows of power. Dark Energy and Dark matter strength are determined by the number of shadows that form behind the alien. Dark Energy knights usually have two shadows. The Dark Energy Queen as seen in the illustration above on the right has four shadows, while the man on virtual cross has 2 shadows. The illustration on the left shows an unknown alien with five shadows coming to power.
Vlane spent years researching relationships between men and women; the effects on kids being raised by a single mother. He interviewed dozens of women and men of different nationalities. Researched: why marriages fail, the cheating disease, the modern breadwinner women, why women date bad boys, Narcissistic men, child support revenge, the female child trap (BMS), why are there so many single mothers raising children on their own and Taboo (the National geographic television show on relationships). Vlane spent dozens of hours analyzing all this data and came up with logical outside the box resolutions to help solving these problems that will only get worst in the future with technology.
Vlane grew up Christian throughout his early childhood and adolescent years. He wanted to understand different perspectives on beliefs as an adult. He has interviewed and debated with dozens of religious, atheist, Buddhist and spiritual people. Vlane researched his findings in bibles, books and googled dozens of topics (including the zeitgeist). He wondered and questioned; why are there so many religions? Do intelligent aliens on other planets have identical religions and beliefs as us? Why are we here? Why computers don’t believe in God? Are the majority of human followers and need to follow something? What would an advanced alien species think of a very religious human race with over 200 beliefs in different Gods? Is religion/faith used to help guidance humans throughout their lives? Do parents & religion help guide children into adulthood? Can humans self-guide themselves? Can religion be used as a weapon against us by a manipulating alien species? If God can see into the future and knows what every human is going to do, are we his simulation? Vlane spent dozens of hours analyzing this information and coming up with a few outside the box neutral perspectives that were used in the BIAlien series. The “DEQ Dark Energy Queen” (Queen of the Darclonian colony), tries to use Jaden’s religion against him in Chapter 23.
BIAlien has symbolic spiritual concepts. When life forms die in the novel their spirit/soul goes deep into space and heads towards the end of the universe. They are collected by “Spirit collectors” that have something to do with the gravity forces and string connections of galaxies in a universe. Book character “Bellona” has spirit-quark wings that are the soul of dead warriors (she uses them in Vol II).
Unknown aliens helped to build the pyramids with early man around 10,000 BC and point them towards Orion’s Belt. Darclonians were investigating who these aliens were.
When Dr. Chan’s Nanomole is accessed by Jaden in chapter 13, he is able to see and feel 100’s years into the past of her family tree (Qing Dynasty, Nanking China 1937). He briefly experiences what Dr. Chan’s grandmother experienced as a child during that invasion; while at the same time experiencing what the Japanese soldiers were experiencing. Jaden and AI discover more secrets to these mysterious alien Nanomoles. Read the cut out scene from the book at the BIAlien website.
Vlane has a gifted imagination (his book reviews concur); his specialty is putting together complex plots, ideas, characters, storylines, mixing 21st century science with fiction and using logic to solve any conflicts. His vision was to write novels that were completely original and unlike anything else on the market. Then turn those novels into movies and work directly with the screenplay writers and directors. His detailed illustrations represent a fraction of the thousands of screenplays/camera angles he has in his mind. He uses both sides of his brain equally. His equation for writing, business marketing, art directing and producing is: “(Problem solving + Open mindedness + Imagination) X Logic2.” Vlane says he can problem solve any plot conflict in a story.
Being a big movie watcher, Vlane envisioned his BIAlien series as a movie in his mind. He spent over four years analyzing every scene to the BIAlien movie (averaging 4-8 hours a day just on thinking) before converting those images over into words. This is one of the reasons why the story was told in present tense. Vlane says the BIAlien movie was like a computer program constantly running in his mind 24-7, constantly coming up with new ideas. When he sees or thinks of an idea, his mind can place it within seconds to the right area of 10 novel movies running simultaneously. He says this is a gift he developed over the years since a teenager. With over 20 other future book titles on standby (ranging from: fiction, non-fiction, true stories, fantasy, mysteries and thrillers), this is just the beginning.
His biggest influences are George Lucus, Steven Spielberg, J.K. Rowling, J.J. Abrams and Michael Bay. Vlane studied their movie styles and art of storytelling on screen. Vlane believes the “BIAlien series” and “Terry nightmare series (next generation Harry Potter)” are $1+ billion dollar gold mine blockbusters waiting to happen. “Andromedian wars” is a spin off mini-series that is like a futuristic Star Trek that is based on the early years of the Andromedian species exploring the Andromeda and Milky-way galaxy.
Story Telling Conflicts/Style
Vlane ran into some early conflicts when he first started the BIAlien trilogy in January 2006. How can an advanced alien species communicate telepathically in third person? How can the Protagonist talk to another alien personality in his mind? (Talking to oneself conflicts with first person narrative). How can Nanotime be described in past tense? How can movie soundtracks be playing in the Protagonist mind in past tense? How can mind reading aliens answer questions inside of a conversation to save on long dialogue? Vlane says he had to slightly bend the rules of third person narrative and come up with other solutions. He says J.K. Rowling has her unique style of writing and this is his unique style of story telling.
BIAlien Video Game
The story and game controls for (Xbox 360 and PS3) have been designed by the author as of May 2009. The story allows a player to choose their path. They can play as Bellona in the Andromeda galaxy or as Jaden on Earth in the year 1996 or 2014. Jaden’s path allows the player to ride the line between good and evil or choose a side. Riding the line keeps the player in sync with the novel. Being evil has its consequences and rewards and will take the player on a different storyline (that crosses between Grand theft auto and X-men).
VC Imagination factory consists of detailed and well thought out story ideas. The BIAlien: plots, concepts, characters, and ideas went through 1000’s of hours of research.
Movie soundtracks in the novel
Vlane is a big movie/instrumental soundtrack listener. His favorite artist are ( Yann Tiersen, Hans Zimmerman, John Williams, Martin O’Donnell, Steve Jablonsky and many others). While Vlane wrote Vol I he spent 10’s of thousands of hours listening to over 5000 songs. In Vol I part 3 Vlane included over 20 soundtracks in the story. EBook readers can click on the links in the novel to listen to the song playing on YouTube. Readers of the paperback can go to the BIAlien website to listen to that particular song play on YouTube from their computer via the BIAlien website. The creative concept was to invite more movie watchers to read the novels. Click here to view/hear examples.
Dozens of blogs on Vol I include topics on green technology, future government weapons, future relationships, women rights, evolving a marriage license, gay rights, saving earth, moon landings and government conspiracies.
Creative art and animation direction
Vlane has watched the BIAlien movies tens of thousands of times in his mind for the past five years. He has thousands of camera angles and screenplay directions in his mind. Translating those detailed visions to illustrators and animators has been a challenge he enjoyed over the years. Vlane remembers five things when he is preparing an illustration or animation to be designed: Out-side-the-box, Logical, tell the story in the illustration, match the illustration with the scene from the book and how would a younger George Lucus envision this?
1st animation directed by Vlane Carter and designed by Matt Garafalo. A scene from chapter 2.
2nd animation directed by Vlane Carter and designed by Olise Forel. A scene from chapter 23. A combination of: green screen rooms, actors, animation compositing, and visual effects went into creating this 1 minute animation video. Vlane says this was his most challenging animation to date.
Over 40 illustrations art directed by Vlane Carter and designed by various illustrators (Matthew Garofalo, Kwan Wilson, John Moriarty, John Buurman).
The 2015 Bugatti/Bugattee used in chapter 21 “Full throttle 1204 hp car chase” was his signature creation.
Vlane went to the car show to study exotic car designs. He created a green technology concept car based on real future vehicle technologies (which included his own idea of wind turbine blades on the tail). The design took three graphic (two who gave up) and 8 months to complete. Illustrator John Buurman worked very hard with Vlane to make his vision come to light.
John Buurman (Vlane’s main illustrator) has completed over 20 detailed illustrations. Vlane admits he has never seen art like John Buurman’s collection. Vlane was challenged to put his skills to the test and John never gave up on an illustration, even though some took 10-15 drafts. John’s vision and superb drawing skills has made an excellent match with Vlane’s creative vision. They are in talks of doing the BIAlien comic book series together.
John Moriarty – He was with Vlane from near the beginning. John’s superb drawing and creativity skills has created mind boggling illustrations like “Bellona” “Andromedian virtual city” “Nanomole skyline” “BIAlien vol I part 1 book cover” and many others. John has the skills to be a master illustrator in the future.
Matthew Garofalo (first illustrator). Matthew and Vlane would spend dozens of hours a week emailing drafts back and forth to each other. Vlane used his problem solving and managing skills to work through over 30 drafts of the “EIS 2 gravhawk spaceship” and “First animation”. Matthew’s love of sci-fi and the opportunity for him to work on something outside the box, allowed him to go beyond the call of duty of an average illustrator.
Kwan Wilson – A good artist that takes excellent directions and works hard to get the job done. He has completed “Jupiter’s moon Europa” “Jaden blackbird rescue” “Taipei 101 rescue” and many more.
