When a meteor shower forces Lieutenant Ard Jay Solstad to crash land on a sandy, unknown planet, he knows it will be at least three months before a droid rescue ship will reach him. With only nine weeks of food left, Ard sets out to map the desolate planet. He is stunned to meet the planet's sole survivor, a silicon-based humanoid, and despite all odds, they fall in love. Leaving the planet will kill her, staying will kill him. When the droid ship arrives, Ard must leave TeeCee behind knowing that she won't survive.
Three years pass and Ard, now Captain, returns to the Preth planet to stake his mining claim and to reestablish a generational world there, a fitting tribute to the unique woman he loved. With him come the miners and everyone else needed to set up a new society and reclaim the now empty world. But what he finds will challenge him in ways he never expected and bring Captain Solstad to an amazing point in the evolution of humanity.
