June 6, 2026. The War to End All Wars. As the bombs rain down, the starship, Prometheus, with its crew of six brave astronauts, escapes an Earth destined to become a lifeless, black rock.
The cargo: A database of 'stranded', or digitized, human beings. The mission: To find a habitable planet, bring the strands back to life, and ensure the continuation of the human race.
But the crew soon discovers that strands are being deleted. And they realize that someone among them is a traitor, a follower of The Chrysander, a rebel on Earth who had preached that humans had ruined one planet, so therefore had no right to inhabit and ruin another. And as the crew members are murdered, one by one, the human race teeters on the brink of extinction.
Chief Scientific Officer Sandra Hapgood, the developer of the stranding process, vows to defend humankind at any cost, and she races against time to save herself, the remaining strands, and the future of humanity...
