Overview

By morning, the United Nations scientists have perfected their shield model, which is designed to counteract the distortion effects of the rapidly approaching field. Aside from convincing leaders their satellite-based shield will work, the scientists have to counteract skepticism about the field's true intensity and the intentions of their key scientist. New information, resulting from the failure of a separate deep space mission, shows a strength and movement of the distortion field exceeding predictions. The scientific mission is then brought into sharp focus, and preparations are made to launch, despite dangers illustrated by a disturbing terrorist attack in Hong Kong, unthinkable for many years.

Doctor Olen Nadimov, physicist and leader of the UN Intelligence Science team, had helped discover the field, and has helped construct the technical shield solution working from a laboratory in Berlin along with physicist Michelle Lambert. A lieutenant colonel with US Naval training, Olen is placed in command of the critical mission to outer space, but because he is a visitor from the distant past, the same past under investigation by the Special Force team, he is also surrounded by doubts. Major Milona Devon is assigned to discover what would happen if Nadimov were to be removed, while Olen also has an unexpected message from home, from the past: His Mother is very ill, and Olen has a choice to make.

To return home to the past is obvious for Olen, and for UN leaders charged with his protection. The mission must continue with or without his help, but the fate of the world seems to rest on his decisions and knowledge. Once home, Olen is tormented by feelings of guilt and sadness, troubled again by seeing the darkness of the global depressions. His family had thrived at the height of American power and economic prosperity, and now hopes to emerge from the depths of a "great reversal". Because of his family's needs, Olen must decide whether to return to the future, to the critical mission, or give up his personal aspirations and stay home to help run the family farm. The fates of those close to him in the future and the past hang in the balance.
