Rollover to Zoom
Paul Westfield had left for the longest mission in NASA history, Magellan, the first manned mission past the orbit of Saturn and his son Casey was only ten years old. A mission long enough that internment into stasis was necessary. Shortly after the wake up call the Magellan mission went MIA, and Casey would be wondering what actually happened to his dad and that mission for a long time to come.
Now Casey has become an astronaut himself and thanks to the discovery of a chamber inside the face on Mars, he has been chosen by the United World Space Agency to go on the most prolific mission in human history. 80,000 light years to the other side of the galaxy, to visit a society that predates humans by well over a billion years.
With a tour guide to help, he has to remember as much as he can because it's a one time offer to exist in a completely alien world, and then return with all his experiences and information. Then an opportunity arises and Casey feels he should roll the dice. Everything is not quite what it seems though, and Casey must survive the court appearance of a lifetime, along with making a decision that could reduce the human race to a footnote in the galactic history log.
