NASA discovered the alien ship lurking in the asteroid belt in the 1960's. They kept the Target under intense surveillance for decades, letting the public believe they were exploring the solar system, while they worked feverishly to refine the technology needed to reach it. Dr. Jane Holloway is content documenting nearly-extinct languages and had never contemplated becoming an astronaut. But when NASA recruits her to join a team of military scientists for an expedition to the Target, it's an adventure she can't refuse.

You are told that your fellow astronauts are in imminent danger and that you need to act immediately. What do you do? Continue to talk and waste time....unacceptable. I can forgive the occasional blunder. Surely the others act professionally and intelligently - right? More like sending a team of high school kids into space.
