At the edge of explored space, Orbital Station CX-9 usually swarms with construction workers and bright lights. But when the shuttle Persephone arrives with Stokes and the relief crew, they find the station eerily empty and echoing with the strains of an ancient Earth opera.
Can Stokes determine what happened before the Persephone suffers the same fate?
A short story by the author of Station OSCX-9 and Jhyoti: "…a rather traditional story… but very well done… quite satisfying."—Rich Horton
