Five years after the Geriatric Brigade's departure from Earth, a new generation Antarean Mothership has returned. The crew, made up of Antareans and Brigade members, was on a dual mission to extract the sleeping cocooned Antarean army and deliver a wondrous cargo, which included twenty-two pregnant Brigade female "seniors" and one young pregnant Penditan bride to give birth on Earth. The physical processing that had prepared the Geriatric Brigade for deep space travel had stopped, and then slowly reversed, the physiological mechanics of human aging. Among deep space travelers there exists one overriding directive regarding the birth of interplanetary offspring, especially those of a "mixed mating." This directive requires that these Brigade mothers-to-be return to Earth to give birth. While the cocooned Antarean army was extracted from their secret underwater chamber, the children of the Geriatric Brigade were born. Even as infants, it was clear that the children of the Geriatric Brigade were evolved--a new race possessing new and extraordinary powers. But how these wondrous gifts would affect the children, and their future, was still unknown.
