3003 AD: the human race makes a breakthrough in interstellar travel like nothing ever seen. A tiny fraction of the population, one in a million - one in a billion - develop the innate capacity to vanish from existence. With training they can will themselves to reassemble in any known location. Over the years scientists find a way to spot these genetic accidents, these remarkable people, and gather them into the Biological Interstellar Navigation Korp, otherwise known as: BLINK. Young men and women, gifted with something astonishing, now shoulder the unenviable burden of confronting the worst dangers of colonial space. They are the first line of defence, able to transmute themselves - travel instantaneously - to anywhere they are needed. So when an outpost on the edge of populated space sends out a scream for help, it is up to the members of Blink to respond. But something is stirring out in the darkness of space, something that views the Blink operatives and their abilities through murderous eyes.
