Alpha Centauri, the closest star system to ours, is Humanity's next frontier. But it’s a race to get there as every nation wants to claim the best colonisation sites.
The Star ship Challenger is the first colony sized vessel to be fitted with the new jump drive, a device allowing them to break the light barrier. Though there are those who don't want the Challenger to get there first, and are willing to do whatever it takes to get their way.
Sabotage plagues the Challenger from day one, leaving the vessel crippled and alone in deep space. With those on board determined to make sure the ship never reaches Alpha Centauri, the crew have to fight not just to accomplish their objective, but to survive.
