The Year is 2050. Space ain’t what it used to be.

On yet another delivery mission to the moon, a washed-up astronaut gets stuck with a trainee he can’t stand. When everything goes wrong they must rely on one another to survive.

Space used to be cool. Back in 2028, Zachery “Max” Levodolinksy joined a sterling class of NASA astronauts. But a decade later NASA ran out of funding and all the hero jobs went away. Now Max is 45 years old and he’s captaining a heap-of-junk orbital tanker on a weekly Helium-3 run to the moon and back again. Rampant computer viruses mean nothing can be automated. Space-qualified pilots are still needed... but just barely.

After ten years of thankless orbital transpo, Max’s company throws a new pilot his way for training: Tomasina “Tommie” al-Qasimi. She’s 25, full of fresh enthusiasm and way too much confidence as she works to prove herself. And when the latest redux goes very, very wrong they will have to work together if they want to survive. No pressure, right?
