Earth is destroyed, our civilization lost.
But humanity has survived!
Resilient, on giant generation ships, venturing to distant planets, searching for a new home. Built by billionaires and visionaries, they carry mankind to the stars – and the weight of our last hope on their shoulders.
23 Generations into the journey of the colonial generation ship “Trappist”, law and order onboard is upheld and executed by a handful of justices. With the powers of police officers, prosecutors and judges combined, they are among the IDs – Indispensables. Respected, feared, and living in modest comfort, they fulfil the Nobles’ will and keep the workforce in check.
Maria Gomez is one of them. At peace with the fact that she will never walk on the surface of a planet, she enjoys the perks of her position and the glimpse of power handed down to her by the Nobles themselves. Until one day, the chase after a chicken thief turns into the case of her life. A mission that will challenge her beliefs – and change everything. For herself, for the workforce, for the Nobles in their heaven.
