Transferring her consciousness into an I-Machine, Academy cadet Maya joins what should be a routine mission, only to get separated from her superiors.
After learning that she's been falsely accused of illegal activities, Maya formally joins her new crew just in time for a dangerous job.
After Maya and the others realize that their haul contains a mysterious young girl, they're attacked by the Planet Alliance.
The crew of the Stulti interrogate their prisoner, Amanza Volchkova, about the UPF's attack on the Escavate company. Amanza has her own agenda.
The crew debates what to do about the mystery girl, who is probably causing them to be pursued. Maya overhears Ido telling Amanza about his past.
Alice is flung into space, Ido's memories come back to him and he vows to protect her. They're being targeted when some unexpected allies appear.
Maya, Alice and Ido are engulfed by the sphere and cut off from space outside. With life support running out, Maya explores a derelict ship inside.
After listening to the log that Ido salvaged from the derelict ship, the crew decide to investigate the Doctor who made it.
Karla recalls her past and her first meeting with the Stulti crew. With Alice gone, they decide to go after the observer, who may be an illegal clone.
Addams transfers Karla's consciousness back into her body. Stung that Ido doesn't remember their shared past, he does the same with Kain's body.
The military prepares for an assault on the wandering planet Rajeev at Earth's Lagrangian point 2. Ido realizes his memories could lead to victory.
Ido pleads with Addams to help him save humanity, but he refuses. Alice's consciousness and the one last chance at survival are both within Rajeev.
