      Poc Tec, Sentient Snake, and her Saurid partner Samot escape an attack by a race of vicious Primates, only to be forced into suspended animation within their crippled space freighter. For nineteen thousand years, they coast through space, further and further from their home.
    Dr. Diane Hanning joins a manned mission to Saturn to retrieve a supposedly derelict alien spacecraft. She finds herself in the center role of making contact with the live, reptilian aliens.

    Kyung Yazawa, CEO of the Yazawa Corporation, leads the Saturn mission, only to find the alien spacecraft occupied by a 30' venomous snake. Kyung suffers from a phobia of snakes, which threatens to overwhelm him.

    They must all put their fears and prejudices aside and work together to survive the onslaught of terrorism and invasion for the secrets of the alien's technology.
