On October 28, 1943, a US Navy ship was successfully teleported with disastrous effects on its crew. Some of its men died, others developed rare diseases. Most horrifying of all, some became fused to the metal, their arms and legs protruding from the bulkheads. Over fifty years later, Dr. Wes Martin, a psychologist and Elizabeth Foxworth, a social worker, are working to help seven people who are having the same recurring dream. The dream involves a large Navy ship in a vast desert. There are soldiers trapped inside the bulkheads. Slowly, by depriving them of REM sleep, the dreams are killing the dreamers. What the dreamers do not realise is that another vessel - a modern ship fit with nuclear warheads - has recently vanished in a grey-green mist over the North Atlantic. Only Elizabeth, by entering the dream, can prevent its firepower from destroying humanity forever.
