ABOUT THE SERIES

       Chris Starr is an agent with NILE.
       We are told that NILE is "probably the least recognized acronym in the U.S. Navy. It stands for Naval Intelligence Law Enforcement and the department "got cases NCIS couldn't take for what the Navy called 'derivative environment', military-speak for unusual circumstances". Starr works in the West Coast office in San Diego where the headquarters there is listed on the building directory as the Naval Information Section though "everyone called them the X-Files guys".
       Starr fits just fine with this section because he is also paranormally exceptional.
       As is explained to us in the opening portion of the first recorded adventure:
       "Starr was in the Navy.
       "Five foot nine, blond and handsome, he'd graduated from Annapolis two years before, hoping to fly jets off aircraft carriers. But then a routine psych test showed he possessed about thirty percent more ESP than the average person. It wasn't a surprise. He'd known all his life that something was up. But now it'd been quantified by the Navy.
       "Three months and many more tests later, he was jump-commissioned a first lieutenant and assigned to the Naval Intelligence Law Enforcement division in San Diego, also known as NILE/West.
       "He'd been here ever since."
       The description goes on to explain something very important to remember: "He was not a superhero. His type of ESP was called STPA2 - short-term partially advanced precognitive ability. He rarely saw events in the far future. Instead he sometimes foresaw what was going to happen just a couple seconds before it happened. In Navy vernacular: 'pre-cog shrinkage'. It was a blessing/curse. He knew when a bad guy was going to throw a punch; he knew when a high-speed car chase was about to go wrong. In the first instance, there was never enough time to do anything but duck. But in the second, going 80 mph on the streets of downtown or 120 up on the freeway, guns blazing, being two heartbeats ahead of everyone else could make a big difference."
       Playing an important part in Starr's life is the lovely lady known as Angel. That is not her real name, which is Star Kleinpeter-Morosi. She goes by the nickname because she is not happy with the hyphenated last name and is determined that should their relationship go up a rung and they end up married, she is determined to not be Star Starr.
