1986 A.D. the dilemma begins for those inhabitants of the planet Earth that have been chosen to save it from an alien race called the Zaleens. The crew aboard the Dorion Adriakar (Orion) have one year to prepare the earthling recruits before they return to battle for a planet they could have taken upon their arrival. They had no idea just who they were messing with. Robert Jackson traveled around on the weekends with his wife Patricia and their two children, Eric and Amber. They would pile into the old sixty four chevy and Robert would drive them all over the state of Wisconsin and into the surrounding states as well, for going to the state parks and tourist attractions together was the highlight of their planned time together on the weekends. Well this weekend would be a little different than the others and would last a bit longer than a day out of the house or state. They never had in their wildest dreams ever thought of traveling into space as a family together. On this friday night in September of nineteen eighty six, their weekend plans would be changed for them.
