Synopsis

The lone survivor of a space shuttle disaster discovers he is indestructible and has become spiritually linked to an alien living within himself.

Plot

An alien who was part of an expedition of interdimensional beings suffered a space disaster in Earth orbit. To save itself, it used its electromagnetic nature to transmit itself to a nearby space shuttle. Apparently at random, it picked the closest human available and entered his mind.

Unfortunately the alien energy being and its human host are not compatible and in a matter of days one or the other must perish.

Ultimately, the human chooses to die to allow the alien, who will do more good in the world, to fully take over his body and continue his existence albeit in human form.

Opening narration

It is said that those who survive a brush with death see the world anew, but what if that second chance became a second life? ”

Plot

Jake Worthy is a cynical writer sent along as the civilian member of a space expedition. Upon re-entry into Earth, the shuttle malfunctions, and crashes. Jake is the only survivor, suddenly incapable of being harmed physically, as well as being endowed with flashes of brilliant insight.

Closing narration

Few of us have the opportunity to truly begin again, to redress the flaws that tarnish our souls, but only when we remake ourselves can we remake the world. ”
