an eerily possible near future, the American empire seeks to dominate
the world through the weaponization of space. By manipulating the voting
system in the American protectorates (which include Canada), General Foreman
and his privatized army of Lifeist Christian soldiers has engineered a
military coup. It is up to the last civilian head of NASA, former Canadian
Andrew Tremaine, to help the resistance forces save his cherished space
station, Earthbaby, and its crew. On the station, Earthbabys Social
Dynamics Officer, Lillith Shawnadithit, faced with unexpected crises and
betrayals, inspires the crew to prevent Earthbaby from becoming Foremans
military platform for space domination with surprising results.
