Well folks, I think that's the title of my novel for this year's NaNoWriMo.
And because I'm doing a verrry science fiction story, I need you guys' help!
I'm really just having fun with this, and trying to throw in as many overused
science fiction tropes as possible... But also make a cool story out of it by throwing
in my own stuff. So far, I've got aliens, portals to other dimensions, a shapeshifter,
someone who can manipulate dreams, space pirates (kind of), a black market situation
on one of the moons of Jupiter, and the "Paragon," a mysterious power source
stronger than anything else in the known universe. My heroes are trying to stop the
Paragon from falling into the hands of an evil megalomaniac from another dimension.
What else could I possibly include? haha

Sounds like an awesome novel! You have to let me read it when you are done! It appears that you have quite a full story, but a war-scarred veteran of uncertain loyalties is always a fun trope.

You need the trope of a clone appearing or a time traveling future self coming back in time and meeting present self.

Ohhh, I like the war vet trope, and I'll try and think of ways to incorporate the others. Thanks guys! haha
