      Fourth Galaxy, 4th November 2052: in the black sparkle of deep space, a figure in a blue overall tumbles over and over as it drifts towards the planet Badr-al-Badur. No space suit, no helmet, no oxygen. He can't be alive can he? But he is. First navigator Fremder Gorn is the only survivor when the Corporation tanker Clever daughter disappears. Nobody knows how he did it, and everybody, including Fremder himself, wants to know. Caroline Lovecraft, head of the Physio/Psycho unit at Newton Centre, Hubble Straits finds that intimacy doesn't lead to answers and Fremder's own memories are resolutely obscure.
