Falling Skies: Worlds Apart

Three months have passed since Tom Mason agreed to leave on an alien ship. Capt. Weaver still holds military command of the 2nd Mass, while Anne has become the group's lead doctor. For his part, Pope has assembled a group of rebellious renegades within the colony dubbed the 'Berserkers'. This new order is thrown into chaos when Tom suddenly returns without warning, to the shock and skepticism of his former comrades.
