“It’s not the end of the world, Jack. But we can see it from here.”
In the grim future of the 2040s, astronomers have discovered a long-theorized ninth planet in our solar system, triggering an unprecedented space race between two powerful megacorporations, each wanting to be the first to bring their probes to the celestial body in the darkness beyond Neptune. When the robotic probes eventually return with soil samples from the outer system, one of them crashes on Ganymede, destroying a research station. After contact with the Jupiter moon station breaks off, a second sample reaches Earth, where conflicts soon erupt over the control of a material that baffles all researchers.
Special Ops veteran Theodore is drawn into the megacorporations’ battle for control over the substance, which endangers the already devastated Earth and the only thing he loves and still cares about: his team.
