The year is 1997. In his garage in the sleepy suburbs of Cambridge, Massachusetts, George Carter has just inadvertently created a telepathic receiver while trying to conduct an experiment on X-ray bands.

The Sphyrans slowly begin to realize that they have somehow created a bridge across the universe, establishing contact with an alien race....the Humans.
