       Additional Information  
     
      In the near future a ceramic superconductor is discovered on the Tok-To islands, located in the Korean strait. Both Korea and Japan lay claim to the find, intensifying their already strained relations. Whichever nation mines and processes the clay-based superconductor will become the ultimate superpower, producing economic growth unparalleled in the 21st century. As their military encounters escalate, the United States mobilizes troops to the island of Tinian as a show of readiness to intervene, if necessary.

    Prior to troop deployment, a Hirayama asteroid struck Tinian. Over half of the comet was composed of ice. On impact, alien cells were sprayed into the air and inhaled by a single rat fleeing the scene. Soon American troops are afflicted with the Eucarion organism, producing an illness never before seen or imagined. The two plots collide at the end of part one and explode into part two, resulting in a vortex of out-of-control events. As World War III brews, Dr. Robert Skillman works furiously to discover a cure for the deadly disease and prevent two Armageddons.
