The arrival of the library ship Asimov had brought Pitcairn out of the lethargy of two hundred years of isolation. The Pitcairners used the knowledge from Asimov to build a better world, less dependent on faraway Earth.

The announcement of a new ship, Endeavor, which could make the journey in months instead of years, promised a closer relationship to Earth. That should have been a reason to celebrate, but the colonists had a secret, and its revelation could endanger everything they had accomplished. Endeavor would bring a new breed of colonists with challenges unlike anything they had faced before.
