Armed with a new weapon, the crew of the Satori risk the voyage to a new world – the home of the Cyanauts, a race of beings enslaved by the Naga for their ability to telepathically translate languages.
They hope to free the slaves, depriving the Naga of a powerful tool in the process. But freedom is not so simple as flipping a switch. Trust is earned, and the crew find themselves embroiled in controversy and danger.
The Naga are not about to give up their servants without a fight, and would like nothing better than to get their hands on the human starship.
The crew of the Satori must decide for themselves the value of liberty – theirs, the Cyanauts, and that of all humanity lie in the balance.
