With the death of his heroic
father, bomber and space warfare veteran Patrick McLanahan Bradley,
James McLanahan must now fly solo, leading a team of young engineers
designing Starfire, the world's first orbiting solar power plant.
Starfire will not only deliver
unlimited and inexpensive electricity to anywhere on planet Earth, it
can also transmit power to the Moon, and even to spacecraft and
asteroids. It's a crucial first step in the exploration of the solar
system, and Bradley and his team are on the cutting-edge.
But U.S. President Kenneth
Phoenix's plans to militarize and industrialize Earth's orbit sparks an
arms race in space that eclipses the darkest and most terrifying days of
the Cold War. Before he can prevent it, Bradley and his team are caught
at the center of a battle that threatens to become all-out global war
for control of space.
