The Braintrust: A Harmony of Enemies
Expelling the Immigrants was Easy. Forcing One to Return…How Hard Could It Be?
Long ago, the President for Life expelled all foreign engineers from Silicon Valley. They moved to the BrainTrust, a fleet of cruise liners off the coast of San Francisco.
Now a brilliant young BrainTrust woman tackles the Fountain of Youth.
No one needs her cure more than the aged and dying President.
Taking her back should be easy. After all…
The BrainTrust has no Army, no Navy, no Air Force. Their ships have neither weapons nor armor.
Yet a key question remains:
Can a society that has earned the name BrainTrust ever be truly defenseless?
He has the Brawn. She has the BrainTrust. Game On!
