Solomon Garrett is on the run. Having escaped the Old Earth quarantine zone, it appears he managed to make it aboard an outbound space flight and managed to make his way across the known Galaxy to the edge of UCS space. His crime? Escaping the Old Earth quarantine zone. Living outside of the protected cities is a sentence to live in near poverty and constant fear for your life. How Solomon made it offworld is a question the Old Earth Authorities want answered. They will stop at nothing to have him returned and interrogated.
