D minus 338 days: As the Argo prepares to become the first Earth vessel to leave the solar system, a signal from the Earth Defense Force brings news to the crew. Though the destruction of the Gamilon base on Pluto has brought an end to the bombardment of Earth, the resulting radiation has taken its toll on the human race. Before the Argo makes the space warp that will take it beyond Earth communications range, Captain Avatar arranges for every member of the crew to make a five-minute call home. For some, the occasion is joyous, and for others it brings tears. But for Derek Wildstar, it’s a bitter reminder of the family he has lost.
