That is, as long as youre healthy and beautiful. But those who are deformed, flawed or misfit in any way are destined - or is doomed a better word? - to become Explorers, crews assigned to probe worlds so hostile, the chances of returning are somewhere between slim and none. Four years after Festina Ramos left Melaquin, the planet of no return, Uclodda Unorr arrives. Unorr is a hired smuggler tasked with gathering evidence of misconduct of the Technocracys Outward Fleet. Much to his surprise he discovers that Oar, a resident of the planet and last of her kind, is still alive. Though Oars glass-like body is indestructible, her mind grows weak and will soon fall victim to apathetic hibernation. Along with her old friend Admiral Festina Ramos, Oar must reveal the true history of Melaquin and expose the ugly deeds of the Outward Fleet before her weary mind surrenders.
