Then a young navigator on a distant mining ship saw something moving too fast, heading directly for our sun.
When the alien ship screamed through the solar system, it disrupted communications between the far-flung human mining ships and supply stations, and between them and Earth. But there are a few men and women who see that if Earth doesn’t wake up and pull together, the planet could be lost.
