It's about the experiment and the wedding.
Cyborgs have once again raised the bar on augmenting human capability. Why pile on? When it comes to implanting hardware into humans, they're already a few thousand years ahead of any second. Now there's a new DNA altering serum? The serum removes anger from the human DNA helix. You may want to duck for this one, but they talked 44 people into testing the serum for them. Then the Cyborgs put them on a spaceship and sent them to a planet as an experiment. You know, to see if they would thrive if they can survive.
The planet was purposefully set up with limited technology. Basically, the 44 will be farmers and live similar to conditions in 1930's Earth. Except there's no gasoline. They have fusion power and self-driving carts. Who set up the planet? I'll give you three guesses. And by the way, those 44 people were all scientists. You know, like the leading scientists in physics, botany, pharmaceutical, medical science, mathematics, and such. Yeah!
Push comes to shove, and you have to agree the Cyborgs have a single mission. The first priority. It's an unwavering quest and Cyborgs will stop at nothing to fulfill the objective.
Most of the story is about the wedding. So it's sort of the storyline, with the rest of it told around the lovers.
