Twenty years after the Planetary Rebellion, the Nova Sol colonists are still cut off from Earth. The mysterious teleportation mechanism that allowed humans to settle the new solar system was eradicated in the natural disasters caused by the rebellion. The invention of a faster than light technology offers the 5 million colonists new hope for returning to their home planet. But difficulties arise while implementing the new stardrive. These difficulties will force President Benefacio to risk others’ lives in order to get back to Earth.
Lurking in the background, the Bions – bio-nanites that were “awakened” during the Planetary Rebellion – are following their own agenda, which will put them at odds with the humans.
Several humans – including President Benefacio’s father – have spontaneously developed anti-aging abilities. Is this a freak occurrence or is there some greater force at work?
Meanwhile, on Bastin, the desert planet, one of the original human colonists keeps a secret that will change the course of human history.
