A glimpse into a possible future starting in the 23rd century. Colonization of other planets is in its infancy. An exploratory vessel lost to history is found abandoned in deep space. A floater. When revived from stasis, the surviving crew announces a near encounter with a ship from another world. The story follows the lives of several key characters growing up in a world reacting to the unexpected news. Karl, the young man raised by religious fundamentalists on a distant planet, is intrigued by stories from his uncle Zeke about the fabled Tri-Planet area. Broney, a product of a bad public family, struggles with anger issues as a member of a small band of marauding nomads. His anger defines him, and he uses his rage to become the most feared man in the trade routes. Amanda is an abused girl who makes the most unusual of friendships, a friendship that sets her on the quest of a lifetime. Captain Cooper volunteered almost one hundred years ago to set out in search of extraterrestrial life. Decades beyond the scheduled time, he has returned with news of a near success. Consumed by an obsession to complete the mission, he will do almost anything to make it back.
