The spaceship Pathfinder arrives at its destination, Gemocon, the new homeworld for the Oconodian/Gemosian people. Commander Pamas Seclan has spent the journey incognito amid the civilians. Traumatized by years of captivity, she is both apprehensive and eager to locate her now grownup children.
Darmiya Do Voy arrived at Gemocon with the advance fleet three years ago. Normally exuberant and positive, the brilliant scientist has burned out and lost her spark. Darmiya meets Pamas and their mutual attraction is intense. Pamas feels she is too old and damaged for Darmiya, but still can’t keep away. Darmiya is determined to persuade Pamas to give them a chance.
During Pathfinder’s massive landing procedures, President Tylio and her associates learn the hard way of the remaining terrorist cells. As the terrorists unscrupulously attempt to reach their objective, Darmiya fights to save Pamas who is toe-to-toe with her former captors.
