Synopsis of Forbidden Cargo
Growing up on Mars hasn't been easy. But it is the only life Sashimu has ever known. Inside the safety of their Martian complex, Sashimu and her friends excel at their studies and are looking forward to graduation. It is life as usual in 2110 ... but, unknown to Sashimu and the other Imagofas, it is a forbidden life! To speed up human evolution, the Order had covertly engineered a new generation of human Nano-DNA beings and dubbed them the Imagofas. Created against the government's dictates, the government wants proof of the Order's illegal activity. Two of the Imagofas, Sashimu and her best friend Thesni, are kidnapped and brought back to Earth to stand before a tribunal as evidence of the Order's atrocities against humanity.
But, during the trip from Mars to Earth, something goes horribly wrong and the kidnapped Imagofas are forced to become fugitives. Separated from each other, Sashimu and Thesni desperately seek the help of strangers to escape Earth's hostile environment.
Along the way they enlist the help of a hard-core gamer known only as the Cadet and befriend the renegade artificial intelligence code-named Prometheus.
The Imagofas will risk everything to escape Earth for Mars. They are, after all, wanted by the government and by the Order ... DEAD OR ALIVE!
