Sally and Ian found what they are looking for, but now they are unsure they can get back. Their computer is ailing while trying to determine where they are, but to make matters worse, a booby trap cripples them and forces them to abandon ship.
Sally and Ian have been approaching the kelthy region for days and are seeing nothing new. Both Sally and Ian are now expecting to face charges for a fool's errand. But then Sally gets a mysterious visit from Viaud uttering a strange and incomplete warning.
Sally and Ian plan their mission to the Kelthy region while first trying to explain it to Ian's wife Angela. Jackie continues to support the mission with her art, promising them an unseen guide. The final party to be notified is Anderson, Ian's boss, who is dubious about Ian's sanity.
In this installment even Sally is surprised at LaValley's negative reaction the their discovery. Ian's crew is sequestered and Sally is locked in the infirmary. But Ian is more resourceful than LaValley thinks. Now they must decide whether or not to risk their lives to stake their claim.
In this chapter, Sally first meets Ian Merryfield a shuttle pilot commanding the ship delivering their supplies. Ian learns of the mystery, and this is not the first time he has heard of problems in the Kelthy region of space. He also notices something odd about the images in the recovered ship's database.
In this chapter, Sally has a revealing conversation with Emry Viaud, one of the oldest miners on the station. She discovers that the region of space where the mining probe was lost has a history of unusual phenomena. She can't help but to be curious.
In this the second chapter we meet Jackie, Sally's partner and confidant. Through VR, Sally projects herself home to New Mexico where Jackie has her studio. Here Sally explains the problem with the station and its missing mining equipment. Jackie asks where things go when they are lost.
In this first episode we first meet Sally Buds, a doctor who refuses to stay in the infirmary. Gravity is low on CMC-6 and the administration refuses to care. The result is a heated argument between Buds and the station commander, LaValley, who argues profit and shares over the health of a young miner.
