For her whole life, Mei has known no other world but the decks of the Spaceship Vimana. The ship, launched in the year 1910, has hurtled for seventy-five long years through the depths of space, following the great parabola of Halley's comet, loaded with a most precious cargo: three hundred and forty-three young ladies.
The girls are the cream of Edwardian Europe. The seed to rebuild a war-torn Earth. Three hundred and forty-three young ladies, educated for a decade in the Celestial Academy, under the strict tutelage of the Headmistress, await their great ship's return to their home planet. To begin civilization anew.
For in the ship's cryogenic pods, the ladies' husbands slumber. For each man, seven wives await. But Mei waits for no one, for she is a Sceg, one of a mongrel breed, the offspring of miscegenation. It befalls her kind to repair and maintain the ship, nothing more. All the while, remembering their place.
But at the hands of the Academy's Headmistress, Mei's body begins to undergo strange, sexual changes. Is the Headmistress exploring the fundamental nature of the female body or attempting to alter the seventy-five year-long course of the Celestial Academy?
Only by submitting to the Headmistress' depraved pleasures will Mei learn the full details of the Headmistress' scheme. All the while, the blue, green orb of the Earth grows ever larger outside the portholes of the slumbering, gilded ship.
