    DescriptionDr. Neil Anson Clemons was born at the very moment that men first landed on the moon and always strived to become an astronaut - in the meantime becoming one of the world's foremost experts in quantum physics and gravitational theory. Now, he and his team have achieved a breakthrough that can make faster-than-light travel a reality. With the help of attractive and outspoken southern astronaut, USAF Colonel Tabitha Ames, the U.S. government is convinced to fund the Top Secret warp project. Unfortunately, forces with much darker dreams do not hesitate to blow up a space shuttle, attempt to kill Neil and Tabitha, and use the stolen warp technology to start what they expect to be a short and victorious war with the USA. But Dr. Clemons has ideas for using his warp drive technology completely unsuspected by America's enemies, and repelling the all-out attack is only the beginning of a titanic struggle to reach the stars.

    Review quote
    "In the tradition of Golden Age SF explodes with inventive action. Even more dazzling is the imaginative playfulness with cutting edge scientific possibilities, there's plenty of stimulating and satisfying speculation." Publishers Weekly"
