President Virginia Belknap is one year into her second term when a NASA scientist discovers a new planet with an atmosphere similar to Earth. Embracing the event, Belknap turns a one-way mission to colonize this new world into her grand calling. It is the early 2030s, and the mission seizes the world’s imagination. But as Belknap starts to assemble international experts to plan the enterprise, religious conservatives—led by Randall Reese—rise up in indignation. They see Belknap’s plan as a blueprint for the Godless perpetuation of the human species. As politics put the launch at risk, a darker conspiracy takes shape that threatens to obliterate the mission, and even the new planet itself. Belknap, her own life in danger, is forced to battle Reese and expose the conspiracy before the launch window closes. Excessive Entanglement creatively explores the political and constitutional issues presented by mankind’s first opportunity to create a more perfect planet from the ground up.
