The Story

Crops are mysteriously dying aboard a colony ship during its one-way voyage to settle a distant planet, and one hydroponics engineer is determined to discover what’s happening before it’s too late to save the colony. The real answer turns out to be even worse than she could have imagined.

The Mikkelsen-Class Colony Ship

The Huangdi, one of five identical Mikkelsen-class colony ships in the JijiColony fleet, which were designed specifically for the needs of this mission. Each ship holds around 1,000 colonists, along with supplies, equipment, and resources to help them survive the 2.5-year voyage—and to establish a successful colony on Jijivisha when they arrive.
