More Starz Series
Howard Silk, a gentle, quiet office worker, has been working for a Berlin-based United Nations agency, the Office of Interchange (OI), for thirty years; however, his rank is too low for him to be told what his work really involves, with him exchanging pre-scripted nonsensical messages. In fact, the OI oversees a crossing point, below its headquarters, between parallel Earths (the “Alpha” and “Prime” worlds). The parallel Earths were created in 1987 during an experiment by East German scientists when only a scientist named Yanek was on-site. The “Alpha world” Yanek met his “Prime world” counterpart, and they soon began studying how the initially identical Earths start to exhibit subtle differences.
The differences become drastically more pronounced after 1996, when a flu pandemic kills hundreds of millions in the Prime world. The virus is suspected of being purposefully delivered from the Alpha world, resulting in a tense, Cold War–like state between the two worlds, with counterparts used as spies and sleeper agents. Silk’s Alpha world continues to resemble ours, but the Prime world becomes quite different, with Howard Silk Prime being a ruthless and cold intelligence operator. Matters escalate during the series when a powerful rogue faction on Prime executes long simmering plans to get revenge on Alpha.
