Earth astronauts, Scott Saunders and Tony Bellows, have landed on the red planet Mars. Their mission is to search for signs of ancient Martian culture.
The astronauts find the remnants of an ancient city and meet Icon, powerful leader of an elite Martian Administrative Council and Carnac, leader of a band of rebels.
Carnac wants a position on the Council. He will resort to do just about anything to convince the Council that he deserves the position. He believes in taking extreme measures to accomplish what he wants. It becomes apparent that the Earth astronauts’ lives may be in grave danger. They may not be able to return to Earth.
Will Icon be able to save the astronauts from possible death or will Carnac be forced to demonstrate just how much power he really has?
