When Harry Lansfeld observes 34 alien warships land on Miranda, Earth has a problem. Scaevola returns to Earth to meet the second woman in his life: the ugliest woman in the world. A story of war and peace, love and treason.
In which Scaevola is abducted by aliens, only to find he must save that civilisation that is losing a war to other aliens. His first problem is to work out how to open the door of the apartment that he has been given.
Following a prophecy from Pallas Athene, all Gaius Claudius Scaevola had to do was to prove the Earth went around the sun, invent a steam engine, and have a successful military career. And survive the erratic rule of Caligulae. The first town seemed impossible, while success in his military career led to Jerusalem, where Caligulae demanded a statue of himself be placed in the temple. A historical novel with science added.
The making of an android with the emotions and knowledge of a most evil man together with immense computing power required the best of programming. It did not get it, and humanity faced possible extinction.
