       Additional Information  
      Dr. Gum and his colleagues have devised the next generation in medical dental simulators, a nuclear powered human-like droid or ‘dentinator’ to assist in clinical procedures. Five top students are tweaking their dentinators including a few promising physicians who narrowly escape a war torn region in Africa to attend the meeting. Several international entries are included in the upcoming scientific conference in Las Vegas. Halfway around the globe, a Soviet nuclear and biochemical facility is deliberately infiltrated by a group of insurgents. They manage to steal enough material to procure several deadly dirty bombs. They intend to deliver their ‘science project’ in a cleverly concealed disguised form to stump the tight security services present at the scientific meeting. The carefully orchestrated operation takes the artifacts around the globe. Dr. Gum and a few of his colleagues discover a colleague in the medical dental curriculum has disappeared. The computer records indicate the student never existed. Is it part of a premeditated plot? A deadly conspiracy?
