"You may not be sleepy now.
But give yourself time.
Give the entire population of the Solar System time.About nine hours worth.
It is the twenty-fifth century and the Terran Federation, a small but technically advanced stellar union, is engaged in a long and indecisive war against the Llralan 'Empire of Four Thousand Suns'. The Llralans have discovered a toxic dust which, by means of robotic ships, they spread over Earth, Mars and Venus; and the three billion inhabitants of these planets collapse into unconsciousness.
But there are ten exceptions...Will they be able to save the galaxy?"
