Summary Two intergalactic space travelers are marooned on Earth for 3,000 years. One of the travelers manipulated the thoughts of humans which became entertainment but changed human history by altering a gene in a young boy. Communications with the humans evolved and became possible. Three teens on a class field trip into the desert discovered the gateway to the space ship. An American oil company discovered a huge oil deposit and what appeared as man made structures deep under the desert in an area that was the forbidden Empty Quarter. The Kingdom of Syban Arabia came under attack from unknowns and the Americans and Russians team up to prevent the takeover of the Kingdom. The travelers needed advanced technology to repair their ship. One of the teens would be their ticket off the planet.
