In the future, clouds of microscopic probes are launched at
near-light-speed from Earth to nearby star systems. After transmitting
their findings back to Earth, a starship ferries thousands of colonists
to a new world. But the manned expedition finds something very different
from what the probes promised. Now, while struggling to fit in with a
crew of scientists, ship's clerk Ryder Kask works to uncover the growing
mysteries surrounding their mission.
