Inhaltsangabe: Captain Picard and the Enterprise have returned to explore the awesome mysteries of the Dyson sphere. But their mission of discovery turns into a desperate race against time -- can the enterprise save the sphere and all of its inhabitants?

Über den Autor: Charles Pellegrino wears many hats. He has been known to work simultaneously in crustaceology, paleontology, preliminary design of advanced rocket systems, and marine archaeology. He has been described by Stephen Jay Gould as a space scientist who occasionally looks down and by Arthur C. Clarke as "the polymathic astro-geologist-nuclear physicist who happens to be the world's first astro-paleontologist." He was, with James Powell, Harvey Meyerson, and the late Senator Spark Matsunaga, a framer of the U.S.-Russian Space Cooperation Initiative (which included, among its designs, an International Space Station and joint Mars missions). At Brookhaven National Laboratory he and Dr. James Powell coordinate brainstorming sessions on the next seventy years; projects currently under design by Powell and Pellegrino range from a global system of high-speed Maglev trains (New York to Sydney in five hours) to relativistic flight (Valkyrie rockets) and the raising of an archaeological site (the wreckage of a Portuguese galleon and the mud that contained it) completely intact from a quarter mile under the Atlantic Ocean.

In the late 1970s Dr. Pellegrino and Dr. Jesse A. Stoff produced the original models that predicted the discovery of oceans inside certain moons of Jupiter and Saturn. While looking at the requirements for robot exploration of those new oceans, Pellegrino sailed with Dr. Robert Ballard, worked with the deep-sea robot Argo, and traced the Titanic debris field backward in time to reconstruct the liner's last three minutes. He has since, with James Powell, developed an economically viable means of raising and displaying the Titanic's four-hundred-foot-long bow section.

Through his work on ancient DNA (including a recipe involving dinosaur cells that may be preserved in mouth parts and in the stomachs of ninety-five-million-year-old amberized flies), Pellegrino hopes one day to redefine extinction. His hope -- and his recipe -- became the basis for the Michael Crichton novel/Stephen Spielberg film Jurassic Park.

Among his nonfiction books are Unearthing Atlantis, Time Gate, Return to Sodom and Gomorrah, and the New York Times bestseller Her Name, Titanic, which became a basis for James Cameron's motion picture Titanic. His novels include Flying to Valhalla, Dust, and, with George Zebrowski, The Killing Star. He is currently working on projects with James Cameron.
