In the year 2110 technology has curednbsp;nbsp;most of our worries. But even as humankind entersnbsp;nbsp;a new golden age, an amateur astronomer pointsnbsp;nbsp;his telescope at just the right corner of the nightnbsp;nbsp;sky and sees disaster hurtling toward Earth: anbsp;nbsp;chunk of rock that could annihilate civilization.nbsp;nbsp;While a few fanatics welcome the apocalypticnbsp;nbsp;destruction as a sign from God, the greatestnbsp;nbsp;scientific minds of Earth desperately search for a way tonbsp;nbsp;avoid the inevitable. On board the starshipnbsp;nbsp;Goliath Captain Robert Singh and his crew must racenbsp;nbsp;against time to redirect the meteor form its deadlynbsp;nbsp;collision course. Suddenly they find themselvesnbsp;nbsp;on the most important mission in human history--anbsp;nbsp;mission whose success may require the ultimatenbsp;nbsp;sacrifice.

Good story when it was written, but there have been many stories about asteroids hurtling toward earth which have made this story seem less exciting. Still a good, quick, entertaining read.
