Destined to be a multimedia smash hit, this epic SF story is based on an exciting CD-ROM game created by LucasArts. When a mysterious asteroid threatens to collide with Earth, a space shuttle is sent to ""nudge"" it into a safe orbit. The three astronauts who venture to the surface find themselves trapped as the asteroid suddenly leaves orbit, transporting them to a strange planet lightyears away.

Review:

When a mile-wide asteroid appears in orbit around Earth, ex-astronaut Boston Low is called on to return to space and nudge the monster into a stable position. When he, a journalist and a scientist investigate the asteroid's surface, they enter a time and place of mystery, danger and revelation: the planet Cocytus, once home to an intelligent race but now a haunted museum to their incredibly advanced civilization. An epic science fiction adventure too big for even Steven Spielberg to bring to the screen!
