Fantastic Voyage Research + Ideas
I will describe the cell structure through an adventure story.
A blob creature/alien, who is young and new to the environment is being sent by their trainer to go and retrieve chromosomes from the nucleus. The creature enters the cell through the cell pores, and tries to make it to the nucleus, but comes through problems (like the RER and golgi apparatus), making his travel difficult. He has a scanning machine which tells him about each new object he passes. When he finally makes it to the nucleus, and removes a chromosome, all lights etc shut down, and the creature is left in the dark, not knowing how to get out.
