After his almost fatal experience on the exoplanet Erid-34, Dr. Neil Jackson wakes up out of a 10-year coma and finds himself in a strange room on Earth. He has very little memory of what happened to him on Erid-34, but he desperately wants to remember. The doctor overseeing his condition, Dr. Sigmund Kline, tries to help him fill in those blanks in his memory. But when NASA officials demand a conference with Neil at NASA Headquarters in Washington D.C., things take a turn for the worse. This sets Neil out on an adventure where he must discover the truth about what happened to him. It is a truth he could have never foreseen.
