The TITAN presence at the wreck of the Serendipity has gotten more active. Few have noticed yet, and Firewall wants it looked into before the Lunar government finds out. When they do, there will likely be a full-blown nuclear response.
Making matters worse, the nearby habitat of Farnoss is home to a secretive ego backup facility used by the Planetary Consortium. If the Serendipity is growing underground passages like those near Mars’ TQZ, then Farnoss could be at risk and even Luna’s nuclear warheads might not be enough to contain it.
Roland’s familiarity with the old cylindar hab is a great boon to the investigation, but he knows better than almost anyone what happened on Serendipity during the fall – and what might still be waiting for them deep in its wreckage.
