In the Spiral Gap sector of our galaxy…hope could be reborn

While believers on earth are struggling against the government-imposed FANU doctrines, enforced by tireless robot “guardians”…

While a Napoleonic conqueror seeks to dominate the newly emerging world of Generaton…

While a disillusioned star pilot and his uncanny bionic copilot are hunted by a deadly assassin…

A race of unseen beings are grappling with mankind’s deepest needs.

Enter the future realm of the Spiral Gap, where SPAID pilots Bru and Bacchus embark on a desperate rescue mission that will pit good against evil, man against machine, visible against invisible…

…even temporal against eternal!

Bru Copetski and his robot copilot Bacchus are returning to Polkbridge Station for a much needed break from salvage and delivery patrol. There they encounter a troubled mayor with otherworldly dreams, and a pair of drug-runners who kidnap two of their friends.

When their rescue mission leads them to the planet Generaton, one of the three Spiral Gap settler worlds, they can’t imagine that disaster lies ahead, even as death follows them from behind. Helped by their friends Maggie Poole and Kevin Ragg, as well as a couple of Christian professors from earth, Bru and Bacchus come face to face with a madman’s army…

…and a mysterious fellowship of aliens who call themselves the Knowers. They are beings who are so concerned about the future of mankind, they will risk their own existence to point us back to the Light!
