The effects of new, heavy quarks are examined in a colored quark-gluon model. The e+e- total cross section scales for energies far above any quark mass. However, it is much greater than the scaling prediction in a domain about the nominal two-heavy-quark threshold, despite σe+e- being a weak-coupling problem above 2 GeV. We expect spikes at the low end of this domain and a broad enhancement at the upper end.
