After comet Bhaktul passes through the Earth's atmosphere, a deadly virus kills thousands of adults around the world. Scientists discover that this virus will soon kill all of humanity, but that it doesn't affect children.  A plan is devised to send 251 teenagers into space on the ship, Galahad, to recolonize a habitable planet and save humanity.

Two years later, the teens launch from Earth beginning their five year journey.  However, shortly after take-off they realize that something is very wrong. A stowaway is on the ship threatening the passengers and sabatoging their voyage.  Can Trina and her young council stop the intruder before it is too late?
