George Bailey takes an experimental rocket faster than anyone has previously reached. He sees ghost-like creatures called the Evil Ones. Good spirits try to help George, but they can do little.

Indexer Notes

Interesting to note the protagonist's name is George Bailey. This is the same as Jimmy Stewart's character from the film, It's a Wonderful Life. George Bailey's paramour in the film is also named Mary. This may be a coincidence, but it may be interesting to note for some.
