Storyline

Timus appears, asking John and Elizabeth to return to the Galactic Trig and present their case for an appeal against banishment; but, with the Thargon fleet fast approaching Earth, they can't go. With the Sorsons gone, all would be well if only the American president didn't decide to go down without a fight, leading the launch of all Earth's nuclear missiles against the Thargons in a final gesture of Mankind's moxie. Just when all seems blackest, Andrew has an idea. Written by statmanjeff
