Cal Pierson uncovers more than he bargained for during an archeological dig on a remote lake in the middle of Africa. Cal’s single-minded goal to prove his theory of human evolution, and save his career, culminates in him and his wife getting embroiled in a 50,000 year old intergalactic murder spree. Accidentally launching a long dormant space craft puts them in a desperate situation. Unknowingly, they awaken a madman wanted for crimes in multiple galaxies before he was put in stasis and left for dead. Their new crew mate plows through dangerous situations like a bulldozer, but always seems to come out on top. During this emotional roller coaster, Cal realizes the only important thing in his life is his love for his wife, Judy. The only way they are going to survive is by working together and hoping their only friend in the universe, an inspector appointed by the President of the Federation, is still on their heels.
