I see things that aren’t really there. Well, not things. Just her. Lola.
Stranded on a small planetary system, gazing at the stars is the only thing that brings Jake any joy. When he was a child, he dreamed of exploring those stars by becoming a warp spaceship pilot just like his father. But when delusions started invading his thoughts, his aspirations for the future evaporated.
Even through his heavily medicated haze, Jake starts seeing Lola again. Instead of heeding his doctor’s advice, he stops taking his medication altogether.
Following Lola through the planetary system, Jake discovers just how dangerous his delusions have become. She lures him to a small, icy planet which has a dark secret. Not everything can be seen, and not everything seen can be trusted.
