Astronaut John Jackson is finally going to realize his life's dream: exploring a brand-new world.
However, after spending a century in suspended animation aboard his exploration starship, he awakens to discover that he never left Earth.
The world he left behind no longer exists. A world war has left the Earth in decimated shambles, inhabited by new barbarians and deadly sentient tanks.
All seems lost, but this devastated world never had to deal with the resolve of John Jackson, the last man standing.
