Due to several catastrophic natural and man made disasters due in the upcoming decades the planet Mars will be moved closer to Earth.  Mars will be used as a possible  lifeboat for humanity. The world’s major governments have all signed off on the plan.

On their super yacht, several members of the SHEPARDS are informed of Brenda Dylon's plan to move Mars. The Shepards control most of the worlds corporations, goverments and money.  They decide who, what and where  takes place on Planet Earth. They are upset that they are not in control of Brenda Dylon. They make plans to take control of this project or to stop it.

Andy, Ken and Kathy discuss the ethics of their mission. Andy offers his philosophy on humanity: 

"We kill to live. Humans create artificial conflict between groups, go to war and that's where all the technology comes from. Humans are not autonomous. Humans are just robots following simple programming." Andy see conspiracies in everything. Nothing is as it seems.

The entire crew meet in the command center. Captain Tapston, 2nd in command Hampton, Andy Crenshaw, mechanic Sam Runner, Dr. Gentry and his assistant Marla Driver. Gentry seems to be irritated at the entire crew and the irritation multiplies as the ship's distance to Mars deminshes.  


Conditions on the surface of the sun could foresee potentially danger for all.

Brenda Dylon  informs the crew that massive demonstrations are taking place all over the world concerning their mission.  Dylan knows that these protests are artificially generated by a yet to be identified power on Earth.  The protests are her problems, the Sun's possibble solar bursts are the crew's probems.
