Two lost souls seeking to improve their lives find a common solution, but a series of mistakes, bizarre coincidences, and confused identities leads them in an unexpected direction.


Honey, I know you’re probably a little confused about what you saw. There’s a secret we’ve been keeping from you until you were ready to handle it, and I guess we’ll have to explain it now whether you’re ready or not.

The Monongah hung in space like a giant 10-penny nail. She was an asteroid mining ship for the AsterOre Mining Corporation. The ship was designed to be fully self-contained, and capable of remaining in space indefinitely without needing to return to Earth.  That’s the way it worked in theory, at least.
