Earth is Queen of the Universe, but someone is trying to destroy her.By shattering time forever! Travel at light speeds is common, & Earth is first in the universe, reigning over many worlds. But in order to rule effectively, Captain Robin Weinbaum, head of Security, needed an extremely advanced communications s ystem. He got it w/the Dirac transmitter, the first machine capable of sending instantaneous messages anywhere in the universe. The only problem was that someone called J.
