The Destiny of Times - Book 1

First Contact Mission - 2196: A mere 200 years after Earth scientist Dr. Jordynn Daniels developed the Matter Energy Converter (MEC) and Global Earth Orbiter (GEO), the face of transportation on/off the planet and to/from space was forever changed. Space Fleet Command (SFC) had their first deep space exploration vessel, capable of the speed needed to leave the solar system and explore their galaxy and beyond. Excitement buzzed throughout SFC as the crew of the U.S.S. Destiny prepared for a first contact mission with the Mythariuns, an elusive race from the mysterious Zeta sector. Star charts confirmed it would take them 900,000 years, which was well beyond their reach. But with the WAGS (Wormhole Aperture Guidance System, they were able to make the journey in 90 days. SFC chose their finest officers for the mission, including Captain Sven Howard in command, and an experienced crew at the controls.

The Destiny arrived on Mytharius Prime in the Zeta Sector, and the Shuttle Golden Gate transported Captain Howard, Ambassador Helene and the senior staff to the surface for the three month First contact and cultural exchange. The Captain, Ambassador, Dr. Janice Boyd, Chief Medical Officer and Commander Steve Lebit, Science/First officer, were impressed by the capabilities of the WAGS and MCD (Mind Communication Device), and worked with the Mythariun scientists to develop modifications that could adapt the device for use on Earth and during Deep Space missions. During a field test of the WAGS system during the team’s second month on Mytharius Prime, they are attacked by Zonan, an inter-universal terrorist, who attempts to steal the Mythariun’s technologies.

Todek is able to send the Destiny in orbit and the delegation on the planet in their shuttle to safety using the WAGS. Once Zonan is neutralized and expelled from their universe, the Mythariuns reactivate the WAGS. Although the Destiny emerges right away, no sign of the Golden Gate or the crew can be found. The Mythariuns and the Destiny’s Engineering teams work around the clock to locate the Shuttle and landing party, but cannot find any trace of them, nor do they find any debris. Colonel Phil Nichols assumes command and along with Acting Captain Giselle Vassallo and Chief Propulsion Officer Lt. Commander Gittel, find and use Doctor Janice Boyd’s research found in the Medical Lab to devise a DNA bone marrow scanner to use it with the WAGS to triangulate the event horizon and scan for Human DNA.

After three long days, they finally pick up the shuttle and crew’s signal. They make contact, and when the shuttle comes through the WAGS, the Mythariuns and Destiny crew are astonished to find out three years have passed for the returning shuttle crew.
