On a routine scientific mission for Jupiter University, the crew of the TSS Ichabod face catastrophe. Cast to the end of space and time, their resources and options bleed out. The crew fights for hope as unbreakable systems falter, screams and specters haunt corridors and people start dying. Unwilling to give up, the captain fights to keep her crew together and find a way to get every one of them home, no matter how many of them have to die.
Captain Aurora Brennan has never faced anything so terrifying in her twenty years as a starship captain. Part of Jupiter University's chronogressional study program, the TSS Ichabod travels across time and space to snapshot galactic superstructures in 50-million-year time jumps. When the last leg of a mission delivers them into a great starless void, the small crew struggles to find when and where they are. Unable to find astronomical bodies of any kind, they can't refuel their ship or replot their way home. Unbreakable systems fail and crew fall ill in an age where illness is rare. A star finally appears on radar -- across the length of the known universe. They arrive as crew members die and hope dims. As fear rises and hopelessness looms, the dead begin to rise and speak. Despite the chaos, the captain fights a fraying reality and a surprising enemy to get her crew back home, whole and alive -- even the dead ones.
