Sally's job as UN Space Commissioner gets quite interesting when a ship full of time-displaced people is discovered in the Atlantic. This also enables Sally to lead an all important peace mission to Baltan. The cold war with Baltan is finally showing signs of ending with the return of Mercy Collins, and Sally spends a year on the city trying to forge a new relationship with Earth. But now her associate commissioner arrives with a new problem. New Ontario, a planet Sally has visited before, i ...
With a lasting peace established between Earth and Baltan mediated by the growing alliance with the mysterious Szzzyyyxx, a new chapter in human history begins. But in the midst of this, the Szzzyyyxx Mother requests Sally's help with a mystery. Two Szzzyyyxx vessels have disappeared in the far reaches of their space. Sally and Ian plan a controversial rescue mission with the first of a new line of experimental ships. They arrive in the region to discover a fold that doesn't appear to go any ...
In this wrapup segment I read from listener comments and reviews. I also introduce a sneek peak episode from the next series and do the final drawing for the prizes for this show. Please enjoy!
At long last, Sally's crew implements the plan that will restore their broken history, but the results are far from expected. The resulting conclusion leaves many interesting possibilities.
With the group together listening to Jackie's and Diego's explanation, they are joined by another who reveals more news, not only confirming what they have said, but raising some uncomfortable truths about somebody they thought they knew.
Jackie and Diego explain new revelations they have discovered while researching different versions of history. But the most disturbing discovery has to do with who Jackie and Diego really are and why they didn't exist in the other Ians world.
While preparing for an operation that could either aid Scott's flight or make things worse, Ian makes a sudden realization that changes everything.
Ian begins to make contact with his home universe while also gaining apparent insight from a future version of himself! All the while, Sally prepares to aid the rebels with the most dangerous weapon ever devised by the Earth she knows.
While Diego seeks his answers, Jackie takes the controls and shows him something he cannot accept easily.
As Sally's team draws up their plans, the other Ian reveals a force on Earth previously unknown to the group. But are they friend of foe?
In the process of making plans, concerning revelations arrise concerning how the Szzzyyyxx gained access to plans for the experimental ship. Then Jackie's new artwork provides yet more disturbing insight.
After investigating the enemy ship, Jackie begins to discover who is behind the problem they must solve. Her artwork, as usual, brings out the essence of a nightmare.
Both Ians board the enemy ship, which has proven to be flown by a dead pilot, only to discover that it's the same ship Ian will one day find on Earth. But Jackie discovers something dark inside that nobody yet understands.
While Sally and Ian argue with Ian's counterpart from a different world, a devastating attack takes place elsewhere, and they are only now beginning to feel its impact.
Sally and both Ians discuss possible ways in which they can work together to solve their common problem, but dark information surfaces about who Angela might have been under different circumstances.
Sally's team must negotiate with their new arrival to see what they should do to repair history, but soon find that they are working at cross purposes. The nature of their problem now looks yet more hopeless.
In Sally's search for answers, she finds herself confronting the Benefactor. But, through the course of their conversation, she opens a door she couldn't have imagined and pulls through someone who should not be.
In searching for answers, Sally must go to the Benefactor for advice as well as cross the line into her own past. Beyond this, she gets some startling insight into what actually became of Spotty.
In order for Sally to know what to do next she must return to Mother for help, but not the Mother she knew. And for her to have any hope, she must convince Mother of something fantastic.
Looking at the results of the damage in time, Sally and Ian get an idea of what many differences have occurred by the time their history will arrive.
Sally and her team are only now beginning to see what the alternate version of history has in store for them and how the Szzzyyyxx unscheduled visit to Earth changed things. But then they begin to wonder how cooperative their friends were with the growing tyranny.
Sally, Ian, and Diego get a first look at what has become of their history and get insights both into what happened and what the results meant to people they became.
Sally awakens to find that Diego had not exaggerated about what he had seen. They find themselves inside a control room managed by their own imaginations, but capable of almost anything, including a round trip to Leningrad in 1964. But the Szzzyyyxx had gotten there first, and they had done some damage.…
Diego's strange illness grants him amazing insight to the nature of the planet and its purpose. Sally and Ian choose to risk joining him, but something neither of them could imagine is brewing under the surface.
While trying to care for Spotty, who has mysteriously vanished, Diego develops an unusual illness. In the midst of this, Jackie makes a critical discovery about the nature of the world they are on.
Following the path left by the missing Szzzyyyxx ships leads Sally's crew to an unexpected trap. Like the other ships, they turn into the event horizon, but within there find themselves in an unknown and mysterious world that seems too perfect.
The farther Sally and her crew get from the Szzzyyyxx Domain, the less sense everything begins to make. Communication channels are degrading and even the chatter on the radio begins to sound foreign. But when they arrive at the last known location of the missing ships, they find a conduit to something truly dark.…
Sally makes sudden progress in campaigning for her new mission, but the actual trip proves to be yet more interesting. Their first stop at the Szzzyyyxx Domain is cut short by an apparent threat from the Szzzyyyxx themselves. There is more that is not being told.
As Sally gathers her team in preparation for her new mission there is a strong sense that what is happening in Szzzyyyxx space has far greater implications than previously thought.
While Sally introduces a reluctant Earth official to the Szzzyyyxx Mother, she finds herself in an unusual position. The Szzzyyyxx need help and only the sort that humans could provide. Sally must now plan for a new mission with new technology.
In this final episode I read from reviews and correspondence about the show. I also announce the winner of the drawing for the original manuscript, and finally I will present two sample chapters from Window in the Sky.
The Benefactor and his people finally clash with each other and with the former Brethren. The culmination of the battal will have implications for eternity.
The war between 5186a and the Benefactor grows hot when the Benefactor discovers that she knows enough about him to become a threat. They clash while he is distracted with problems from his own people, but 5186a is in a position to make things so much worse. But Bass may be the most dangerous wildcard of all.…
Sally and Diego meet up with the others as all flee from the former Brethren's encampment. Something big is beginning, but Sally still doesn't know what it is. Bass and Mueltee part company, however, and Bass's weapon may have something to do with it. In the midst of all this, the Szzzyyyxx Mother finds Sally. But her advice doesn't apper to make s…
The Benefactor's conversation with Sally takes an unusual turn when she discovers his true motives for helping the former Brethren. She also begins to notice something on the horizon of time that the Benefactor can't seem to see. And, while this is happening, Bass tries unsuccessfully to make an aliance with Mueltee.…
Sally and the Benefactor meet in a realm higher than reality, and he must grant her the ability to see it before they can truly speak. Meanwhile, Ian discovers much of Bass's true identity.
Sally meets an unexpected familiar face on New Ontario while Diego and Ian make a shocking discovery. Apparently, Bass was concealing an extremely dangerous weapon in his belongings that could change everything. And now it is time for Sally to meet the Benefactor himself at the center of the great pyramid.…
Sally and her party make contact with 5186a, a former slave of the Masters, who now leads a growing revolt against them. The mysterious Benefactor, however, is not providing them with sophisticated weapons for their cause, though he is teaching her more about Earth than could be expected. As Sally talks with her, however, it appears the alliance be…
The landing on New Ontario proves to be full of surprises, as the ships appear to dissolve on impact with the ground. And, as the team makes plans to meet their new contacts, the Szzzyyyxx crew members appear dangerously attracted to a powerful electric force on the surface.
On their way to New Ontario, Sally discovers that Bass's folly has endangered their mission, while at the same time Diego's eccentricities have proven amazingly useful.
Sally and her crew begin their journey to New Ontario in a Szzzyyyxx ship, but questions still emerge concerning Ian's strange crew member. They also speak to their unknown contact on New Ontario, who apparently has no name.
The trip to the center of the domain was almost as interesting as meeting Mother herself. It is a meeting that goes beyond the physical, and one where Sally must make an embarrasing request. But Will the Mother of the Szzzyyxx be willing to help them on a mission that could include violence?
Sally had been looking forward to meeting the Szzzyyyxx, but actually seeing them is quite another matter. She also meets Bass, a member of Ian's crew, who has dubious value and a hidden agenda. And soon she will meet the leader of all Szzzyyyxx.
While discussing her upcomming mission with Jackie, Sally meets Diego, a stranger who is vaguely familiear. He also has a means for them to meet up with Ian near a fold that nobody knows about. The creatures that live beyond it are amazing in every way.
On Baltan, Sally is confronted with news of new construction on New Ontario. A Russian spy drone delivered images of a massive pyramid shaped structure being built over one of the Masters' palaces and somebody on the planet wants to talk peace with Earth. Sally's only option is to call in a favor from an old friend.…
