“The Music of War”

Created by J.J. Abrams in collaboration with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, Fringe was one of Fox’s most riveting television series, based as much on hard science as it was on captivating the imagination. The series followed an unlikely trio (later a full-fledged, top-secret team within the FBI) as they uncovered deadly mysteries, each one pointing to a larger, more disturbing pattern that bridged science fiction and reality. At the close of Season Two, I wrote an episode spec script, titled “The Music of War.” Built on in-depth scientific research, this ep saw the Fringe Division working against the clock to solve a bewildering, interlocking puzzle — the answer to which revealed shocking truths that threatened our world’s very existence.
