(From the publisher):
The alien machines stood on Titan, Saturn's largest moon. Housed in huge buildings that made the space explorers from earth look like insects, the machines contunied to function as they had since beyond recorded time. Yet what their purpose was, and who built them, was a maddening, terrifying mystery.
Dr. Sydney Lee was convinced that these machines had een designed to destroy man, and unless the power that drove them and the beings that controlled them were discovered, they would succeed. But there was just one way to prove his theorey. Dr. Lee and his chosen crew were frozen and placed in a space ship to a distant star. When they returned to life, fifty years had passed. They were no older, but the time they had to find and destroy their enemy was perilously short...
