Having the ability to merge, Kitara Littlehawk and Marika Anderson can become a very powerful creature. But it is limited. How can they make it as powerful as it can be?
THE STELLAR Official Website
Kitara Littlehawk and Marika Anderson can become THE STELLAR - possibly the most powerful creature in the universe. Unfortunately it is not at the peak of its performance. Juso Kodam, one of the Brothers of the Japhorian Council of Superiors (responsible for the women having such a “gift”), has told them that it is because they have not yet learned how to be of one mind after they join.
In an attempt to remedy this, the women take a special trip to Japan to seek the help of a Zen master. But in the process, they encounter the unexpected antics of the Yakuza, as well as the FBI.
Meanwhile, on Guliana (the source planet of the orb, which contained the life-forces that were released into the women) trouble is brewing. A group of escaped criminals led by a rogue scientist have taken over the planet by use of a mind torturing device. Adding more stew to the pot, another alien race, one that much resembles the insects of Earth, is seeking a new planet home - and has set their sights on Venus.
And the Zar is still yet to show up.

The vacuum of space held no resistance against it. NASA could only wish that they could reach the moon within the time it would take to drive from Los Angeles to San Diego on a minimum-traffic day.
Unfortunately, as impressive as a single creature doing about 150,000 miles per hour was, it was the best The Stellar could do, and in the back of its mind squeaked Juso’s boast of his and the stellars of his fellows’ capability of the speed of light. But The Stellar was not daunted.
It could fly. It traveled a great deal of Earth in less than a day, and that was something.
The Stellar took time to survey Earth’s only natural satellite. Despite the junk left behind—the obvious implication of man having been on an otherwise pristine rocky landscape—The Stellar found the American flag and the footprints left by Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, and the others after them exciting to see.
And now it had left its own.
From there The Stellar glided out to explore its home solar system. It found itself surprisingly able to get within miles of the surface of the Sun before feeling any ill effects. It partly trekked the surfaces of Mercury and Venus (the surface of Venus was so cloudy that it was difficult to see anything), and then spent some time walking around on Mars. If there had been any kind of life there, The Stellar couldn’t find evidence of it either.
Between Mars and the next most distant planet, Jupiter, was a belt that, much like the rings of Saturn, circled the Sun, comprised of large rocks—the largest being the size of some of Earth’s tallest mountains. This was the solar system’s own asteroid belt. Picking a rock of amazing volume, The Stellar decided to do something. Outstretching arms and pointing both fists toward the rock, The Stellar emitted a combined power-burst of energy from the arms that vaporized the impervious giant into millions of smaller stones. Then it did it again, and again, destroying over twenty of the behemoths. It was then it realized it was using only a fraction of power on each one. Generating maximum power (all that it suspected it had), it could probably vaporize that beautiful, familiar rock it had just visited called the moon!
It didn’t stop because it was tired. It could have pulverized them all. But it had had enough play. It moved on.
The next amazing thing to discover was that Jupiter was not a solid ball—that is, not like Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. It was a planet of gas, composed 95 percent of hydrogen and helium. Another addition was a ring that surrounded it as well, although undetectable from Earth. Thanks to Voyager 1 scientists knew about it, as did students of the stars, but like Kitara and Marika, very few others did.
Saturn, on the other hand, was well known for its rings, and they were marvelous to view up close. The Stellar found itself fascinated at how a closely grouped crop of small rocks surrounding a planet could create so spectacular a sight from a distance.
The Stellar only had minor interest in the twin planets of Uranus and Neptune. Pluto, the small “once a planet, now a . . . whatever” was so frozen that its atmosphere could not be penetrated. The Stellar only circled it a few times before heading back to Earth.
