Rebellious star pilot Phillip Barreda just barely scrapes out a living for himself and his handicapped brother, Jerry. But their lives change when they accidentally discover an interstellar gateway at the edge of colonized space where his ship is attacked and disabled.

Forced to team up with the ironfisted Space Marshall Amanda Hayes, Phillip and his passengers are soon brought face to face with Dr. Cornelius Plato, a brilliant scientist exiled from earth over four centuries ago who has discovered the secret to immortality.

Along the way, Phillip and Amanda learn that the line between sheriff and rouge isn't always well-defined. As they team up and discover how powerful Dr. Plato truly is, an unlikely hero emerges as Jerry discovers that he alone holds the key to stopping the evil doctor.
