Wednesday Writing - Brainstorming a New Novel

I wanted to switch gears yet again this Wednesday. While writing continues on The Colliding Empires, I have been itching to start a novel again. I have a couple of ideas I've been entertaining, but neither has gotten me that excited. I want to break into the Science Fiction genre. So, I'm going to give my intro ideas and hopefully you guys can chime in with comments that can help push me one way or another. Here it goes:

My initial idea was Halo meets Venom meets Star Wars. I think a lot of people might understand the Halo meets Star Wars part, but the Venom addition is the melding of an alien entity with a human (the difference is instead of the alien basically encasing the human, the alien would be a symbiotic organism within the human's brain). The original idea was the relationship would help to break humans away from hundreds of years of bondage and slavery from an alien race and eventually bring them back from near extinction. But, that's all i really have so far. I have a possible first chapter written, but I'm not sure I'm digging the POV and a few other things.

Any thoughts, comments, concerns, nudges, or whatever are welcome! What do you think?

Tents were lined up orderly in rows for as far as the eye could see. Soldiers milled around cook fires, sharpened swords, and fletched arrows, mostly staying close to their own squad's compound of tents and supplies. He wondered how many soldiers were like himself, hiding their true nature to keep from being used up in short order. He wondered how many secret mages, or at least those with the ability to become mages lurked in midst of the throng of these men and women. Mages were a hot commodity in the Imperial Army as it swept across the continent claiming new lands for its own. Magic turned the tide in battle for whichever side had the most numerous mages. While ability helped greatly, a large number of fledgling mages could overcome a seasoned magical user in due time, at th
