From the summit of their distant future, a charismatic renegade named Ganymede travels to the past to bring Galileo forward in an attempt to alter history and ensure the ascendancy of science over religion. Yet between his brief and jarring visitations to this future, Galileo must struggle against the ignorance and superstition of his own time.
