Imagine you’re a talented and funny engineer, part of the crew on a voyage into outer space. Your crewmates are down on the surface of a planet where time moves far, far slower and you, along with your robot, have been waiting years for them to return to your orbital station. The situation looks pretty bleak, but never lose heart! There are a host of scientific problems to solve and experiments to conduct, an enormous ship that only you can keep in working order, and a star system dominated by a black hole that hides incalculable secrets – a black hole that turns out to affect your ship in strange and unexpected ways. Your future here is going to be full of surprises!
