When Pelops awakens from his cryonic sleep more than a year before the scheduled arrival to his ship’s destination, he must find a way to survive the remainder of the trip. His CryoPod is completely destroyed, and he cannot wake his other team members. Rations are almost non-existent since someone chose not to add emergency supplies to save money. With little over three months of food available to him, he is forced to take drastic measures. Pelops is the only hope for the people of Dantus to survive the famine that has overtaken their star, and he must live long enough to help them.
