The UN finally decides to make cut funding for the CEADAS space debris collection programme. The craft’s last commander, Pete Duran, and its mainframe computer, LYKI, decide to buy and take control of the craft, completing the final collection run on behalf of the UN.
As time passes, though, LYKI evolves into a technological hybrid of artificial intelligence capable of manipulating the craft’s crew.
After a devastating sun storm wreaks havoc across the universe, the spacecraft with an assortment of characters it has collected along the way, find refuge on the very outskirts of the planetary system. Among the CEADAS crew is also a team of scientists headed for Neptune, who are working on the rejuvenation of biosomes, as well as exploring the nature time-travel.
All the while, LYKI has been preparing for the startup of a new colony after he’s done creating a new hybrid of artificial hyper-intelligent robots.
But as usual, nothing ever goes according to plan, and events start to take an unexpected turn…
