decades the Space Consortium of America has searched for new ways to
harvest resources beyond an increasingly depleted Earth. The ultimate
plan is about to be ignited. So is the ultimate threat to humankind.
Captain Ry Devans and his crew of the Mars Orbiting Station-1 are
part of a bold plan: resurrect the once-active molten cores of the
Red Planet with synchronized thermonuclear explosions, and terraform
the hell out of that iron-oxide rock for future generations. Itâ€™ll
change history. So will the strands of carbon-based Martian cells
that have hitched a ride on the ship.
Karen Wagner knows the microbesâ€™ resistance to virus is incredible.
Itâ€™s the unknowable thatâ€™s dicey. Her orders: blow them into
space. But orders can be undermined. Two vials have been stolen and
sent hurtling toward the biosphere. For Devans and Wagner, ferreting
out the saboteurs on board is only the beginning. Because there are
more of them back on Earthâ€”an army of radical eco-terrorists
anxious to create a New World Order with a catastrophic gift from
one-hundred-and-forty-million miles away from home, Devans is feeling
expendable, betrayed, a little adrift, and a lot wild-eyed. But space
madness could be his salvationâ€”and Earthâ€™s. He has a plan. And
heâ€™ll have to be crazy to make it work.
EventÂ starts with the unusual proposition that the
greatest difficulty in terraforming Mars will be not geophysics but
Earth politics–rising quickly to open warfare. Interesting and
intelligent.â€ –Dave Drake Author ofÂ Hammer’s
