"Never Leave Anyone Behind" is a familiar refrain for American Servicemen. A crew is incapacitated in a strange land and a hostile government tries to capture them and steal their resources. If you're not in the military, do you put your family's lives at risk to help those who can't help themselves, or may not even survive? Previously published as "Stranded".

Young and old alike are being pounded by events outside their control. Jack and Abby find what might be a solution - a commune. The result is even more than that - it is a community.
