Traveling faster than light, the transport ship Redundancy is cut off from communication as effectively as an ancient ocean liner.

Light-years from home, it's Ira's second chance. Just another anonymous student at a space station university. Not the orphan whose Earther heritage was erased. Not some social experiment put on display by his adoptive father. Not the criminal recruited by the human rebels. But when Ira's loyalties clash once again, two wars break out: one on the ground and one within himself. Which will Ira stand with? Which will take him down?

Equipped with the entirety of human knowledge, a sentient ship is launched on a last-ditch journey to find a new home for civilization. Trillions of miles. Tens of thousands of years.
