A successful couple living in Oregon realised from very early on that their new son was an exceptionally gifted child. His amazing intellect and near eidetic memory were so far advanced for his age that he was attracting a growing interest from various universities and scientific organizations all across the country. So much so, that the government decided to step in and negotiate a long-term contract with him and his family for their own future use. They would plan and schedule his academic curriculum and also arrange confidential scientific internships at leading research facilities, primarily focusing on the latest, cutting-edge developments of laser fusion. Unfortunately, they weren't the only people interested in his rapidly developing, prodigious mental abilities.
