The Augerite invasion and the Reaper war convinced the United Galactic Treaty Organization (UGATO) leadership that the galaxy must be teeming with intelligent life that their descendants would eventually meet. Some would be hostile so they decided to use time travel for preemptive defense purposes. By knowing the future they might be able to take action in the present to enhance their security.
UGATO had originally justified the time ship’s cost by promising to locate and visit God to discuss his real purpose, the meaning of life and the mysteries of the spiritual world. This was soon abandoned as fool hearty. UGATO traveled back in time 2,900 years to visit the Xetonian Messiah Graciana who convinced them that a precise understanding of God is not possible purely through the use of technology. God cannot be known in a physical sense and it would always require a measure of faith in order to achieve a state of grace.
As the Unitarian survivors of the Big Bang and their alien allies continue their manifest destiny in the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond by traveling in time, their faith and courage would be tested. They were about to breech the zero time barrier or what the news media had dubbed ‘Infinities gate’.
