SynopsisIt is June 1970 and space travel has been a reality for the past ten years, but interest has died down since the discovery that no other planet in our solar system can support human life. Dr. Ney has invented a Galaxial Drive that will allow travel at speeds far exceeding that of light. This will allow travel beyond our solar system and to other galaxies.
