"So long as we go forward with the well-being of others as well as ourselves in mind, we'll create a legacy that can be and will be worthy of preservation indefinitely."

~ Eliza Williams to James Cooper


Eliza Williams and a host of friendly heroes tackle some of the greatest dilemmas of the day using the tools of physics, neuroscience, and physiology, among others, to overcome the effects of space travel on our physiology and neurology. We meet many new characters and journey as Eliza and her growing crew of friends are determined to overcome a rocky economy, undue suffering, violence, disease, and terrorism. They work together to tame seismic activity, weather, and fires. She and her friends tackle ways to prevent extinction and provide solutions to quality of life concerns. They even consider the longevity of our Sun, establish tech cities throughout the Solar System, and protect our Earth's capacity to preserve life. Eliza tackles each of these issues to get us out and into the stars, so we can begin an even bigger quest throughout the many stars and beyond! 


With intellect, experience, perspective, kindness, and graciousness we will have the ability to gain more wisdom leading to longevity and clarity of mind. For Eliza and her crew of friends, it is a race against time to meet new civilizations, preserve life, share our legacies, and go further than before! No matter the challenge, there will always be an opportunity for greater pursuits!
