Can anything else fill the void between the stars other than battle and destruction?
For the last free humans to roam the galaxy in a swarm of 28 large ships, the destroyed Earth is only a distant memory. Persecuted by merciless enemies, they encounter an intelligence that could not be stranger. A gigantic sphere envelops a star. Whoever lives there – he proves from the first contact that he is as superior to humanity as a supercomputer is to a hand communicator.
Thousands of years of wars have made the military powerful. But Kara Jeskon firmly believes in her dream that beyond the conflicts there is also the chance for peace. Their conviction is put to the test when they are entrusted with the management of Esox, a ship that lost its freedom after a civil war. At that time it was believed that the symbiosis of the people living there with their computers had led them to a path of dehumanization. But it is precisely in these borderline experiences that Kara realizes the best way to escape the whirlpool of violence. She wants to use the contact to the mysterious sphere to open a future to mankind, which reconciles her with herself and the universe.
