The Outer Space Treaty prohibits nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons from being placed in or used from Earth's orbit.
What no one could have imagined was that mankind would conceive of the simplest weapon ever deployed - one with extinction power - to launch from space. The military named this weapon "Rods from God." And yet, it's not nuclear, biological, or chemical.
Two women drone pilots battle in outer space to defend their country. One is a former fighter pilot who, after a crash, now flies from a wheelchair. This dynamic female drone crew from Nashville, Tennessee, now based in Florida, is drafted to defend the United States from a rogue military element threatening to use force to stop the impeachment of the president. Their weapons are twenty-foot tungsten rods. A single rod dropped from orbit would strike Earth at ten times the speed of sound with the impact of a nuclear weapon. As weapons are readied, our heroines find they are Beyond Visual Range.
