Iceball is set in the year 2185 with World’s technologically advanced concepts developed but slowly. Jim Malone the chief test pilot for the Nalt corporation is sent on a long mission in a small and untried spacecraft to destroy a very large ball of ice which is on a collision path with the Earth. When he eventually reaches it, he fires a charge, blowing off a section off the mantel of ice and revealing the surface of an enormous spaceship, several kilometers in diameter.
Eventually, he gains an entrance and finds that this vast spaceship has been sabotaged by a ‘Grey’, and is operating on low emergency power alone. He manages to restore power and finds a beautiful woman in hibernation. After coming out of hibernation, she speaks to him in quaint old English, last used several hundred years ago in the middle ages. She reveals that she is from a distant race of Earth’s ancestors who came to Earth hundreds of thousands of years ago, and manipulated early man’s genes to allow us to eventually develop into what we have now become. They introduced some of their own kind from time to time to guide and help us along the way. However, she should have been in contact over three hundred years ago, but because of the sabotage, the vast craft just drifted very slowly, and she remained in hibernation, and the world did not develop as planned.
Jim and Rebecca, as she is named join forces and after many unusual and sometimes difficult times, manage to prepare the Earth to resist the eventual invasion by the cruel and destructive Feltgangers using some of the very carefully concealed defense mechanisms put in place by the wisdom and foresight of these ancient ancestors many thousands of years ago.
