Rescued by the enigmatic Arthroplana in their mysterious Beastships and taken far from home, the Human race tries to atone for killing their home plane thousands of years ago. Settled upon the alien twin worlds Castor and Pollux, they must make no impact on the fragile ecologies of their host planets and even every drop of water must be returned.
Humanity has tried to adjust.
Despite the constant watch of the Arthroplana and the Human Conservancy, John Gen-93-Beta has reluctantly agreed to captain the Beastship Evangeline on an unthinkable journey to a dead Planet... Earth.
An engrossing voyage of discovery unfolds for five travelers : John, his First Mate Connie, stowaway Raef, Tug the Arthroplana and the Beastship Evangeline herself. On a planet none quite expected, each learns the power of being human.
