The election of President Stonewall would usher in “The Years of Chaos” and the eventual destruction, and invasion, of the United States by United Nations Forces. The invasion sets the precipice of a global showdown, but Paradigm stands in its way.

Ben and Lena’s experiences will become pivotal for the survival of mankind. Ben’s destiny was not to save the world but to save the war orphan, the woman-warrior-savior that they would raise as their own daughter. The woman that would be known only as Nova.
