The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo an elite group of super beings traveled light years away from their territory to study the not so complex, down right idiotic, and not so stellar race known as humans. Over the years the Order has watched and nudged humans in the right directions when it came to technology. The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo had to take pause when a human came up with an exact replica of a flying car. They had to take a bigger pause when that replica became a fully functioning flying car.
The fact humans came up with this by themselves should have been a good thing. And it was to a degree. The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo was kind of proud for once the humans did something on their own. So it was with great hesitation the Order made the painful decision to disallow the creation of flying cards at this point in time for humans.
The reason for the temporary halt on flying cars could have been any number of things. The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo has been zipping through air and space for millennia. The problem they had with humans zipping through space was the simple fact humans were crappy drivers. If the Sovereign Order Of Monte Cristo had a dollar for every car wreck they saw let’s just say they would be filthy rich. And it was simple impatience that caused the majority of accidents.
They have helped humans gain a great portion of their technology. But they refuse to allow humans in space and air. They have to put a stop to it now because if they manage the flying car they can easily build on it sending cars into space outside of Earth’s air space. They may even build their first real ship. The last thing they need is road raged speed demons floating around in outer space.
So the Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo made it a top priority to stop the creation of flying cars, for the simple fact humans are crappy drivers.
