Random movement help

Hello all,

I have a bit of a conundrum… started a new job that threw me into as3 without ever having looked it over before. I looked at the tutorial for random movement that was posted here a while back (http://www.kirupa.com/flash/random_movement_as3_pg1.htm) and i got it to work fine, but what I really need is for the little circles to originate from a central point and then randomly spread out.

Almost like traveling through space, like this - http://www.freeactionscript.com/2010/08/flying-through-space/

Any thoughts??? I’m trying desperately to look good for my new employers and i’m getting a bit panic-y.

Many many many thanks in advance!
