       Additional Information  
     
      In the remote wastes of Greenland, a young scientist has unearthed an artifact hidden in a cave for A millennium: a 50,000 year-old meteorite known as the Sacred Stone - which he soon discovers possesses potentially catastrophic radioactive power. But the astounding find places him in the crosshairs of two opposing terrorist groups who seek the stone for themselves. One is a group of Muslim extremists who have stolen a nuclear device. With the power of the meteorite, they could vaporize any city in the west. The other group is led by a megalomaniacal industrialist who seeks to carry out the utter annihilation of Islam itself. Caught between two militant factions bent on wholesale slaughter, Juan Cabrillo and his ship of high-tech mercenaries known as the Corporation must fight to protect the scientist and the Sacred Stone - and prevent the outbreak of World War III.
