- DescriptionIn a time when much of the world's nations have become a conglomeration of police states and oppressive regimes, embroiled in counter-terrorism, insurgencies and rebellions, one man leads a group of people from an island in the high Arctic, leading to the orbit of Mars, the wind-swept glaciers of Antarctica and finally, an island-nation in the South Pacific. Marcus Gowan, is in possession of a secret, unkwn techlogy first acquired by his late, adoptive father and after building the spacecraft Destiny, prepares to initiate his dream of gaining a permanent foothold in space to fulfill his ambition to claim Humanity's birthright to the stars. Before Gowan can launch the Destiny, a false-warrant is issued for his arrest on suspicion of inciting an insurgency, domestic terrorism, and violations pertaining to the United Nations UNISPACE 5 Treaty. An elite, anti-terrorist team, lead by the tough and -nsense Major Dennis Manning, has been tapped to apprehend Gowan. Adversaries Manning and Gowan must put aside their differences and work together to prevent the techlogy-which governments of the world would vie, steal, kill, and go to war to possess-from being perverted into the ugliest weapons the world has ever seen.
