Using his advanced scientific knowledge, Thomas becomes incredibly rich thanks to dozens of inventions his company releases. He uses his wealth to search for a way to transport water back to his home planet, but as his wealth and his fame grows so does his profile, and it isn’t long before Thomas becomes a target of interest to the U.S. Government who begin to investigate him.
