An experimental NASA flight goes horribly wrong, and the unlucky test pilot wakes up unhurt, back home. Struggling to discover what happened, Eric Morgan returns to NASA prepared to face a thousand questions as things continue to unravel around him. Is he still human or a new species, and what does that mean for those around him?
Eric encountered something strange in the dead of space which left him forever changed. Testifying before a Congressional subcommittee, he inspires fear and hope. As the danger mounts, he tries to fall off the grid and begin a new life as he struggles with what happened, but the rest of the world won’t allow him to walk away. Is he a threat or a blessing? Is he helping humanity or threatening them? Should he explain himself or hide? And what about those close to him? How will the changes to him impact them?
