"Thousands of years in the future, when the nearly indestructible skulls of destroyed robots litter the forest floors of the American continent, which barely remembers the greatness of the old technological civilisation, Tom Cushing sets out on a quest to recover lost knowledge and to regain humanity's lost heritage. He treks across the mid-west to find the fabled Place of Going to the Stars, from which ancient technological man left earth to travel among the alien civilisations of the galaxy. There reside the strange artefacts that humanity brought back from other worlds, and, it is rumoured, some of the strange aliens themselves."
