The next generation of Americans have what everyone dreams about; the technology to travel the stars. And for fresh out of the academy Lieutenant Kyle Walker, he hopes to be amongst the first to explore the universe.
Despite having this amazing technology for almost an entire generation, Kyle is one of the few people who are disappointed in the advancement man kind has made in space exploration. It seems that America's newest branch of the military is nothing but a fleet of warships that hover above the Earth to serve notice to any potential threats to the country, namely the growing power of Korea.
Having crossed the DMZ decades ago and claiming the south, Korea has become a world power; and a possible nuclear threat to the US and the world. And when America shoots down the first Korean space vessel, the cold war between Korea and the United States begins.
Young Kyle Walker dreams of exploring the stars. They call to him. He visions himself as an adventurer, not a conqueror. The threats facing the US are threats of the past. The promise of a new tomorrow amongst the stars should unite all mankind, Kyle believes. But for some reason, old habits seem to die hard.
When Kyle's would-be girlfriend Raquel Zantana is assigned the first deep space mission, Kyle is given secret intel and discovers the true nature of the mission. Raquel "Zee" Zantana is heading for a planet that is believed to contain more than enough energy and materials for America to create a whole new breed of weaponry. The problem is that every unmanned probe and satellite sent to the planet, dating back to the old NASA days, have never returned. Kyle believes Zee to be assigned to a doomed mission, and does everything he can to stop her. To save her.
And when a mysterious force seems to be driving the cold war between America and Korea to the brink not seen since the Cuban missile crisis, Kyle will have to make his first real command decision. Save the girl? Or save the world?
This isn't Star Trek. This isn't Star Wars. No little green men. Just us humans. With our pride. Our prejudices. And our ability to hope and work towards a better tomorrow.
