A ragtag crew of humans and posthumans discover alien technology that could change the fate of humanity... or awaken an ancient evil and destroy all life in the galaxy.
The close-knit crew of the White Raven run freight, salvage, and (sometimes) security at the fringes of our solar system. They discover the wreck of a centuries-old exploration vessel floating light years away from its intended destination and revive its sole occupant, who wakes with news of First Contact. When the crew break it to her that humanity has alien friends already, she reveals that these are very different extra-terrestrials... And the technology they left her with threatens to unleash a terrible existential threat to all intelligent life in the galaxy — but also opens up unprecedented opportunities to explore the larger universe.
