Dan Drake signed up for a one-man mission to explore the uncharted depths of outer space. No more emotional entanglements or catastrophic relationships, just miles and miles of sweet, solitary darkness. But despite his best efforts to leave the remnants of his sorry social life back on Earth, Dan just can't seem to escape the plight of humanity. The hapless astronaut navigates a galaxy of troubles, from terrifying alien encounters and course-altering intel to clashes with his unexpected copilot, Suzette Connors – one more beautiful woman who can't stand the sight of him. As it becomes increasingly clear that the mission is not what it seemed, and the future of his species may hang in the balance, Dan must find a way to think – and feel – like a human being once again.
