Centuries after Earth's exodus, the Exodus Fleet remains a relic of the past, a place many have heard of but few outsiders have seen. Tessa, who chose to stay while her brother explored the stars, grapples with the uncertain future of the Fleet. Meanwhile, Kip, a reluctant young apprentice, yearns for change, and Sawyer, a lost and lonely newcomer, searches for belonging. When a disaster rocks their fragile community, these disparate individuals must confront the question: what is the purpose of a ship that has reached its destination?
