“Captain Sean Hartford didn’t believe the seer who warned him the Merryweather’s next voyage was doomed. Later, however, an explosion cripples his ship in space. Sean and a small group of survivors find themselves stranded, with little hope of rescue. Worse, it soon becomes apparent the ship was sabotaged, and the saboteurs aren’t willing to let them leave the ship alive.”
This is a suspenseful semi-thriller with science fiction overtones. It’s also a character study of the story’s three leading figures and their evolving relationships as they race against time.
Time: Present Day
An American biochemist sets out to save humanity by forcing the brain to evolve, to climb the evolutionary ladder to the next level. If he’s successful, he’ll threaten the status quo, the powers that be. As his approach uses designer drugs, it gives the FDA and DEA the perfect excuse to go after him.
