The Alma robot-generics are made from silicon and nano like materials. They are created becuase of the love between two members of a desperate CORP team that will continue to fight (Alma, the human robotic designer and Commander Starkson, the mission leader). Several thousand planets are under relentless attacks by unknown beings. In the far future, the generics become mission companions to the commander. His lonely task is to find the answers to the bombardment, planet disappearances, and destruction of the human race. Alma-a describes those events. Alma-b is an encounter with kind beings in a parallel universe and their decisions about war and peace. Alma-c is a 'spin-off' and about how humans were created by strange researchers visiting Earth from a nearby planet. All worthy mid-night oil!
