US Air Force combat pilot Colonel Steve Richardson suffers a severe head injury when his F-35 crashes in the mountains of northern Afghanistan. Awaiting death, Richardson is convinced he's hallucinating when an unusual craft appears and rescues him. It conveys him to a massive spaceship in orbit where he receives treatment for his wounds.
Once recovered from his injury, Richardson is introduced to a covert space force called "Solar Warden" – a secret space program that has been in operation for forty years. It utilizes futuristic technology to defend earth against a paranormal alien threat determined to destroy earth's inhabitants. Everything he discovers is part of a breakaway civilization, completely unknown to the inhabitants of earth.
Richardson agrees to join the program, but he struggles to master technology half a century beyond his training and experience – technology that utilizes physics that hasn't even been discovered yet by the greatest minds back on earth.
Doubtful he can learn the skills necessary to become an asset to the program, Richardson fears he may become just another casualty in this interstellar war. Regardless, he presses forward, hoping he can help turn the tide of battle against an alien enemy that is even deadlier than it seems. An enemy with a supernatural, demonic nature that if victorious, could mean the end of humanity.
