The 30th Street friends, Brandon, Jessie, Terri, Gabbie, Matthew and Antonio, set up a computer to send signals far into the universe.  Initially, they think that a return signal is a mistake.  But when they test their model, they are assured that they are receiving live communications from a great distance.  Shortly after receiving that first signal, they are contacted by Ivan and Tatyana from Russia; and Aba and Abeni from Algiers.  They, too, are working on a similar model.  Together, the group continues to improve the process. 

Later, they would smile as they thought of those initial transmissions.  At the time, they thought that they were so sophisticated in their design.  Eventually. they travel past the deep abyss of stars to meet Acamar, Nusakar, and Nukasar.  Even now, they continue to honor their promise, made on that first voyage, not to share the information or their experiences with anyone.  They were concerned with how it might be used.
