SYNOPSIS:  “The Jordan Foundation sponsored the Proxima Centauri Expedition in 2119 in an attempt to reach the nearest stars of the galaxy. But that was far in the past. The original purpose of the Ship’s epic voyage has long been forgotten and for generations the giant spaceship, lost between the stars, has been the only world the people on board have known.

A strange civilisation has slowly developed, with its own superstitions, savage religion, rigid class structure and mutant outcasts. Then one young man discovers the truth about the Ship and its destination and a power struggle ensues that changes everything… for ever.”
