They were three: Maq Ancor, the master assassin, Macician Cherry, space illusionist, Sine Anura, mistress of the erotic.
Chosen for the great quest, the journey into the heart of mankind's greatest creation: Zeus.
Zeus who made the new worlds for Man, endlessly forming, linking, organising the spread of Man into the new Zeus-created lands. So great was the undertaking that it had passed beyond the control of Man. Zeus, obeying with ruthless logic its original program, was lethal in what it deemed to be its own defence.
For Man to regain control he had to understand what he had created.
This was the great quest, the ultimate journey of discovery.
