Life on board a space crater is tough but for the crew of The GYBE it is about to become a race for survival.
In 2297, eighty-two years after Earth Abandonment to Mars, the Company is sending back a salvage team to retrieve the ISELP (International Space Exploration Launch Platform). The mission for the five company crew members (Addie, Irvin, Noona, Harvey and Dougal) on board the Company ship ‘The Gybe’ is straightforward, return to Earth, refit the one hundred and twenty year old ISELP and sail her back to Mars. But space laboratories sealed up on board the ISELP hold something the Company wants, whatever the cost, making the crew of the Gybe expendable.
The Company controls the resources loop on Mars for sustaining life in the biohedron cities and those resources are fast running out. The plan for deep space colonisation, particularly the building of the DSELP (Deep Space Exploration Launch Platform) is a cover for something far more sinister.
