Jake’s life is a merry jaunt around a militant mindset of misusing impossible science.
He’s a seven thousand year old teenager, an extraterrestrial marooned since the Bronze Age, waiting patiently for us to advance in science and social graces.
He needs a way back to the stars but he won't risk giving us anything too dangerous. That is, until he loses the formula to manipulate time.
