Captain Esson Halser of the U.S.S Centauri is alone on Planet Aurelia, Earth’s nearest inhabited planet.

His only companion in this lonely existence, an Artificial Intelligence system embodied in a drone called SAN X9000, isn’t of much companionship. Every day he sets out and completes his tasks. One day, on a mission, a peculiar piece of his past catapult him into a chase for truth, leading him to find the true nature of his mission – one that puts him not on any other planet at all, but rather close to home.
