The KaliSun Initiative - Nick Wyckoff M
- The Price of Progress
The KaliSun Initiative series is a near-future science fiction story set in Earth’s Solar system. The aftermath of a global war between the United States and China, where both sides resorted to extreme tactics, has left the world reeling. The cold war that followed allowed the two sides to catch their breath and prepare for the next war – in space. When the KaliSun Corporation’s science experiment near Saturn goes awry, disrupting communications through out the solar system, the Chinese take the opportunity to go on the offensive once more, targeting the KaliSun Moon- Based Training Center on Earth’s moon. The combat that followed was vicious, but yielded no victor.
The second book, The Price of Progress, picks up immediately after the end of The KaliSun Initiative, as the consequences of the Corporation’s first attempt at interstellar travel become painfully evident. Daily combat rages around the Moon-Based Training Center as the two sides struggle to establish dominance. The Chinese, in an effort to secure the high ground for renewed combat on Earth, and the KaliSun Corporation trying to survive and maintain the tenuous link to their facility on Saturn’s moon Phoebe.
With their ability to return to Earth in question, the Director of Phoebe Base, John Hatfield, is confronted by the fears of his crew – fears only heightened when a new threat emerges from a most unexpected direction.
