When the JSS Dauntless vanished in the middle of system tests during its maiden voyage, no one knew what had happened. A radical theory by one of the test scientists resulted in a hasty refit of the JSS Endeavor, Dauntless's sister ship, which was still under construction. Now the crew of the Endeavor are about the test whether this theory is true or not. Will they suffer the same fate as the Dauntless, or will they discover a way to open the galaxy for exploration?
