Shaw Mercer makes a surprising discovery. After eight years of compulsory service on the world of Theriesian 8, his life is about to change.
Shaw, heir to the Mercer trading empire, finds himself at a crossroads as he wrestles with finding his own identity amidst his upbringing and the harsh adjustment of being treated without privilege after leaving Terra. He begins to wonder whether his future is really in his hands and decides to wander the galaxy after his time on Theriesian 8.

Fortunately, he knows the one person who might be able to help him get his life back on track.
