Torii Zimmerman is a galactic explorer destined to become a leader among his people. He distinguished himself in adolescence with a development study of Suzanne Malone and is now on the brink of returning to his people and taking up the mantle of leadership. And, in spite of the threat of destruction and the laws of his people, he plans to take Suzanne Malone with him.
