"Terminus A & B"
This is a view of the planetary system Terminus A & B as visualized in my collection of original science-fiction stories entitled "The Archangel Chronicles". Terminus A and its satellite Terminus B are located in a remote corner of the Cygnus Transcept, a little-explored and sparsely-populated area of the galaxy. It is to this moon that two representatives of the Galactic Alliance, Lieutenant Brisbane Richardson and Technical Officer Alanna Kosari, must travel to seek out a renegade scientist who has information pertaining to the whereabouts of a mythical artifact rumored to be eight billion years older than the universe itself. Their pursuit of this fabled object, known as the "Forever Stone", takes us to the headquarters of a interplanetary gang (built in the style of an Arabian sheikdom) just in time for its destruction, as well as into several encounters with a murderous religious cult, the Cusp Foundation, and finally into the heart of a newborn planet.
