Imagine the future. Not the flossy-glossy one that feels like riding a Tesla driven by a coked out Ayn Rand. No. Imagine instead... a future somewhere between a white cishet libertarian's wet dream with sexbots and a nightmare Greta Thunberg had during a nap after eating expired tofu chimichangas. Can you picture that? No? Try this:
Los Angeles has become a main hub of the Galactic Confederation - a relay outpost for extra terrestrial travelers coming from and going to the Norma and Scotus-Centaurus arms of the Milky Way, also known as "The Effed Up Side of the Galaxy."
After his mom disappeared during a quantum terrorist attack when he was a boy, Gabe Chagas decided to follow in her footsteps and become a member of the LAX Security force, where he spends his time deporting aliens for a living.
Gabe isn't particularly fit. As a matter of fact, he's a total wimp. What he lacks in courage, he also lacks in brains. But when Gabe receives a cryptic message directing him to a non-existent gate in LAX's infamous Terminal 3 promising answers for his mother's disappearance - and her presumed status as an undocumented time traveler - his own terrestrial residency falls under scrutiny.
Welcome to Terminal 3.
Your flight WILL be delayed.
