When people die, all of their thoughts, hopes, dreams, and memories are extracted via this interface and encoded in the Soul Bank. Every person is stored indefinitely and made available for anyone to visit. Many partake of this opportunity to learn from the lives and mistakes of others. But the memories are just data stored in a computer system, and one day a hacker learns how to steal those memories. Implanting them into the brains of interested buyers is just as easy, and quite profitable. Meet Jeremiah Jones: visionary, entrepreneur, sociopath. Name your dream. Name your price.

Humanity is near the tail end of an intergalactic war with an alien race called the Bect -- a war we are losing. The only thing we have in shorter supply than combat pilots is hope. After a rough skirmish, a strange object is picked up by the United Earth carrier Ticonderoga. Within the object, the ship's scientists find something even stranger: a man, cryogenically frozen and shot into space more than 300 years ago. The fact that he's still technically alive raises questions of Fate's hand in life and war.
