2080: The world is dying. Travel six decades into the future where things get really ugly. Leaders of the most powerful nations have come and gone with the years, never addressing the big-ticket issues of climate change, drought, and famine until it’s too late and annihilation’s staring humanity in the face. And if that’s not enough, there just happens to be a deadly bio-engineered pandemic raging across the world, unleashed by a group of bio-hackers intent on reducing the globe’s population. Oh, but the world’s elite, they’ve got a secret plan to keep their own skins safe, hanging their hats on a trio of mega-gigantic Space Arks to shuttle them to safety on a Martian colony.
But the truth is very different. In The Flight of the Mayflower, Dr. Daniel Radu – project manager for NASA’s Space Ark – uncovers a global conspiracy and together with a team of experts, he and his colleagues embark on a desperate intergalactic journey of survival, where they struggle to find acceptance as refugees on a distant planet.
