It’s not easy to sail a cloaked artificial island the size of Cyprus in the Pacific such as to avoid regular shipping routes. The descendants of the Avendar galactic explorers, stranded on Earth, have done it for eight thousand years. Amy is grateful to them for offering her refuge when she most needed it, but she also thinks they’ve been hiding their homeland long enough. Especially now, when Niven’s two sons keep her busy, she doesn’t want them to grow up in the isolation of the elite island society. However, there is a difference between a measured exposure of the Island, and ripping off its cloaking screen. But that’s precisely what Persis, the ruthless siren wants to do—and in the process destroy the world that’s hosted her ancestors.

If the Voyager 1 space probe was picked up in outer space by extraterrestrials, what would happen? Here's your opportunity to find out.
Voyager 1 was launched by NASA in 1977 to study the outer solar system and, ultimately, interstellar space. It carried a gold-plated audio-visual disc in the event that it might be found by intelligent life-forms from other planetary systems. It was discovered by goopmutt bandits who towed it through interstellar space at superluminal speed. In an effort to conceal their crime, they manipulated the data on the craft’s digital tape recorder and left it in the heliosphere where its signal could still be picked up from Earth. Eventually, they abandoned the probe in the Centaurus galaxy where it was picked up by two itinerant spacecombers from a small circumbinary planet known as Morys Minor.

Being an avid aquarium hobbyist, it is obviously just a matter of time before Neil finds himself travelling by wormhole to a small circumbinary planet in the constellation of Cygnus. Okay, it's probably more relevant that he is the grandson of a woman who had befriended extra-terrestrials at the turn of the 21st century. Having been chosen to broker a peace agreement between Mortian and Earth peoples, he is hampered in his efforts by the disappearance of his Earthling friend, Aysha, the general unpredictability of life on planet Melinda and the sinister chicanery of the chilloks, a species evolved from ants that is bent on overthrowing humankind...

But when his best friend since their grade school days, Charlie, offered him some magic tea, brewed from the ayahuasca-like "Queen of the Night" plant, it would forever change his jaded outlook on this world...
“THEY SAY THE COSMOS IS A VOID,
DISTURBED BY A FEW ISLANDS OF MATTER. THEY’RE WRONG.”
– Captain Elric Main of the Light Security Corvette MEDJAY.
Humanity stands at an expansionist crossroads. Planetary systems have been colonized and exploited. Yet, even with barely fifteen percent of the Milky Galaxy fully explored, mankind had already set its sights on the Canis Galaxy, the closest galaxy.
Technology and growth have been fueled by corporate greed, with massive conglomerates now having their own domains in space. Over everything is the Interstellar Galactic Federation, composed of spacefaring companies. The very way of life and destiny of mankind are in its hands.
The Milky Way galaxy was but a stepping stone for corporate expansion. Nothing stood in humanity's path. With such kind of rapacious competition, the usual wars and conflicts are now commonplace, with rules governing intercorporate relationships being determined by the Federation. In space, only the truly powerful survive.
But despite such galactic advances, humanity has yet to encounter another sentient lifeform. An experience that had given birth to an unwarranted arrogance in the primacy of its species.
All that is about to change. There is life out there, but not life as humanity expected it to be. Now, man's very existence will rest in the hands of a few intrepid individuals at the edge of human space.
