Brymn had sought out Mac because she was a biologist--a discipline strictly forbidden among his own people--and he felt that through her expertise, she might be able to kelp him discover what had created the Chasm. But Mac had little interest in alien races and in studies that ranged beyond Earth, and as politely as she was capable of, she tried to make it clear that she was unwilling to abandon her own work. However, the decision was soon taken from her hands when a mysterious and devastating attack resulted in the abduction of Emily, and Mac Iii was forced to join Brymn and the Earth special agents.
