Something odd is happening in the galaxy. For Angie, a young lieutenant serving at Landbase Rozari, the stars have come out of alignment while the planet has grown unseasonably cold. Back in space aboard the S/S Discovery, a strange skin affliction is paralyzing practically the entire crew, or at least those who are mostly human.
In the meantime, Captain Amyr is suffering from a massive headache, which is not related to Sandy’s indecisiveness about their upcoming nuptials, and whether or not they’ll actually take place.
Strangest of all, half a quadrant away, Sandy’s mother, Captain Jill is determined to renew her relationship with her one-time flame, Sandy’s father, Lance.
Will Jill win Lance’s heart once again? Will Sandy finally don her ring and say I do? And, will Amyr conquer his headache in time to save Planet Rozari before it spirals out of orbit and across the galactic divide?
