Castaway meets Lost in Space. Exploring the power of information. More
A pilot drops from hyperspace to find his ship disabled by space dust. Unable to rendezvous with a nearby terraforming station, he falls to the planet below. After escaping the landing with little more than his life, he realizes his fiery decent went unnoticed. Now his only chance of returning to his family on the station lay in the data stores of a wrist computer and the sparse resources available near the crash site. Can the spaceman return to the stars or is he destined to remain on a planet with a population of one?
