Quee Lee is a beautiful and rich woman, and she's immortal, and she happens to be married to a young fellow with a mysterious, intriguing past. That past comes alive in the form of a Remora named Orleans. Like any Remora, Orleans normally lives on the exposed hull of the starship, but he has come below looking for Quee Lee's husband. To settle an old debt, apparently. Which launches an adventure, and what will this grand old lady do when faced with the remarkable truth?
