Imagine being given the chance to colonise a whole new world: you're put on a spaceship, in a pod where you'll sleep, suspended for 120 years and when you wake up you'll be on your new home planet. Sounds exciting, right? Jim Preston, a mechanical engineer, and 4999 others, are given that chance, and everything is going as it should - until Jim wakes up. The starship passed through an asteroid field, causing his pod to malfunction, leaving Jim awake on a ship that won't reach its destination for another 90 years...
Another pod malfunctions, and a woman called Aurora is woken up, too. Jim befriends her - together they discuss ways to fix the pods, and try and cope with their situation. Two years pass, and Jim and Aurora have settled into a routine, until another man appears, also having woken up early, a Chief Deck Officer called Gus. While they try and figure out the mystery behind the malfunctioning pods, they realise something is seriously wrong with the ship - can Jim and Aurora fix it, and save the lives of thousands of passengers before it's too late?
