Scions is the second exciting chapter of the popular space adventure legend ReGenesis - An Alternative Future. In ReGenesis, six astronauts leave Earth in 2025 in a light-speed ship enroute to a planet outside the Milky Way galaxy. Their intended destination, Nyvar, is believed to have intelligent life. After 13 centuries in hybernation on their journey, the astronauts age only one year. They awake to find that because of sabotage to the ship's computer, the Revelation had returned them to Earth - Earth in the 34th century. Our travelers soon learn that Earth in 3339 boasts miraculous advances in technology, medicine, law enforcement and in government. The United States rules the planet with an iron hand and war and crime are practically nonexistent, however, freedom has been redefined. The six astronauts struggle to adapt to the new Earth and two of them venture from Earth to become the first galaxy adventurers of the 34th century. Scions tells the tale of how Jake and Susan and their two highly advanced androids launch from Earth in the re-engined 10xL Revelation starship enroute to the Alpha Centauri star system, 4.3 light-years from Earth. On Mond, a planet of Alpha Centauri A, they discover a world much like Earth but find evidence that although intelligent life had existed there, all animal life now appears to be extinct. Radiation pervades the atmosphere. As the astronaut team explores the lowlands, the woodlands and the abandoned cities, they find evidence that intelligent life may still exist - but where is it? Suddenly the team is ambushed and captured, becoming the prisoners of an underground civilization - survivors of a planet-wide nuclear chain-reaction that occurred centuries before. Jake and Susan and their two androids, George and Gracie, find themselves in a life or death situation that could eventually affect the Earth and the entire galaxy. On Mond, they discover two races of humans who have been at war with each other for centuries. The Zyconians, indigenous to the planet, were a peaceful people until the arrival of the Staatians, evil war-mongering aliens from another star system. The Staatians, who hold the astronaut team as prisoners, are determined to be the ruling race on Mond. Now that they have learned of Earth and have impounded key pieces of Earth's advanced technology, they threaten to extend their rule across the galaxy. George and Gracie - the androids - become the heroes of the story as they display their super-human strength, speed and mental CPU abilities. Scions is a fun and exciting adventure in space with challenging sub-plots, humor and surprises.
