When are we accountable for our actions? When we know the difference between right and wrong? When we are free enough to act upon that knowledge? Bit struggles when she faces her first chance to decide for herself between what is right and what she wants. At the same time, Jack fights to unify the old crew of the Lenore with the new men and women of the Caprice all while under the looming deadline of a population growing without a place to settle. If Bit can stay out of trouble, and if Jack can build a team, they will soon race toward distant stars in search of a new home for the ever-growing human race.
