Spaceport Zeta, a floating beacon in deep space, has been discovered. It guards the Vortex; the entryway into the galaxy vast wormhole system, enabling rapid travel to the innermost reaches of the Milky Way. Someone or something inside has beckoned the giants and Earth's little ones to enter the unknown. Will the crew of the Omni-Star leave the safety of Zeta and risk everything to discover where they came from and who they really are?
The giants' missing ships, with 200 Elders from Mars and the Moon, have been found!

Over 1,200 giants, discovered in suspended animation for 50,000 years underneath the Moon, have been awake on Earth for 10 years.
