In the future as Bova here imagines it, Earth is an ecological nightmare, and humanity may well go the way of the dinosaurs. But overhead orbits salvation. A vast metallic island in space, the Trikon station conducts genetic research too risky to be done on earth - research that could save the planet.
Yet Commander Dan Tighe discovers that the Trikon’s major project is espionage. Its international crew is split into warring factions; its scientists - consumed by greed, lust, and drugs - run the lab for their own gain. Murder, intrigue, and romantic jealousy threaten to sabotage the station’s crucial work.
Only Commander Tighe can save the Trikon - and only Trikon can save the Earth.
