It has been 97 years since we turned on each other. 97 years since the nuclear war. 97 years until we found our unity. Ophelia is the daughter of a liberal arts major and an astrophysicist. She was bright, and charming. She had it all going for her, a career in biochemistry, degrees, even jobs in the agriculture branch in the ark. And it all came crashing down with one drug run. Now, she and 99 other criminals- including the narcissistic and rude John Murphy- that were too young to be carelessly murdered have been dropped on to a radiation-fried planet as lab rats in order to save humanity.
