Four centuries have passed since humanity’s first attempt to colonize the Orion Spur. Now, the Synfederation corporations dictate the bounds of the New Frontier. Hallalabor, an isolated mining planet, is the focus of competing interests who battle to control the site of a mysterious artifact, hoping to shed light on the fate of the lost arkships. Hallalabor Station, led by enigmatic Arbitrateur Jon Noles, mounts a hasty expedition to recover the remaining relics before the site is strip-mined. Preservationists, xeno-archaeologists, religious envoys and reporters gather on the barren planet to investigate. They must set aside their differences to overcome the main obstacle, the rugged, primitive planet. That is not the only obstacle; someone is bent on sabotaging the expedition. Xandra Rekabi, investigative reporter, and Petra Vlast, Hallalabor Stationmaster, probe the hidden agendas of the expedition. Can they uncover the truth before the expedition is doomed?
