The Ocypete

In the late 29th century, humanity has seized control of its own evolution and begun to explore the galaxy. An enormous interstellar vessel undergoes its seventh mission to a far off star system, but something goes catastrophically wrong in the transit. The ship is all but destroyed; the few survivors are scattered and disoriented.

The Ocypete tells the story of that ship and those survivors as they scramble to piece together what happened, why, and whether there is any chance of rescue.
