For Specialist Bobby Ty deployment is all fun and games, smoking and joking, until life literally blows up in her face. She's accused of stealing an in-development armor prototype, and hours later it winds up on her wrist. In that same moment, under indirect fire of an unknown enemy, friends dying beside her, Ty falls into a rupture in the Earth where an open capsule awaits. She's rocketed into space and when she wakes up, she finds herself in a new place with a new dominant species in charge.
A species that does not like her claim to humanity. A species that states Earth is a creation myth, legend, believed by fools. They go so far as to lock her up on grounds of insanity.
Through the midst of her confusion and befuddled state, a Universe-wide war threatens to be the end of her before she can manage her way back home. It is here, fighting to stay alive in jail and battle, that Ty realizes she is more than just a lost space traveler with unfortunate luck. There's a bigger strategy at work, where the fate of the Universe, Earth, rest on the shoulders of Bobby Ty, a human out of time, and that strange prototype with a mind of its own.
