Will there be hope to this space exploration expedition?Earth’s resources have dried up and time is running out. Green policies and fuel efficiency laws have been abandoned. The only hope for survival is to find another planet capable of sustaining human life.The Orion Project is set up to explore the possibilities of establishing a colony on Titan, one of Jupiter’s moons. After years of research and development, the light ship Orion, a huge spacecraft”"furnished with all the necessary technology and equipment to make Titan habitable”"is finally launched. It is operated by a crew of four highly trained astronauts, and captained by Kira-26. But these are no ordinary astronauts”"they are Simians. Unethically created in a laboratory, on an international space station, these humanoid creatures are the final result of years of stem-cell and genetic experimentation. “Stronger, smarter, faster than any human being on earth”, they have been engineered to fulfil the specific functions required to operate a spaceship, as well as to unquestioningly obey orders from the Orion watchtower on Earth,But to the alarm of their handlers at the Orion watchtower, the four Simians rapidly mutate and evolve, and start showing human feeling, as well as making independent decisions. Nevertheless, they remain loyal to their mission. But suddenly, after seven long years and just when they are within sight of their destination, all communication with Earth is lost. The Simians, pulled off course, soon discover that Titan is inhabited by beings far in advance of humans and learn that the Titans, feeling threatened by Earth, are planning the destruction of its people. Captain Kira and her crew are summarily dispatched to Earth. Their presence is soon discovered by their handlers, and alarm turns to panic, for the Simians have dangerous abilities and knowledge, and must be hunted down and terminated at all costs.On discovering the extent to which they have been manipulated and betrayed, the Simians’ loyalties are torn. They would like to avert a global disaster, but they do not trust their former masters. What is the true nature of the Orion project? Who are the hunters and who are the hunted? Earth is just hours away from annihilation; can disaster be averted? If you enjoyed this science fiction globalization novel by John Black, you will certainly enjoy his Project Mimic, an action-packed science fiction thriller, with a terrifyingly plausible scenario: The creation of a virtually indestructible soldier part human, part machine with special tactical knowledge starts a fresh global conflict in the race to obtain the laboratory secrets to this triumph of warfare technology. But what happens when the test subjects disappear? “Do yourself a favor and give this book a read.
