A collaboration of the most brilliant scientific minds from Earth are banded together on the research planet Osage with hopes to bring an end to famine, disease, the energy crisis, and more. When tragedy strikes and a devastating virus sweeps the planet, all communication is lost.
Twelve years later, the world is desperate for answers. Science again turns to the most brilliant minds it can assemble and the Osage Exploratory Compendium is formed. Aboard the Ares Seven, Kalo Massey and other members of the OEC embark on an extended voyage in an attempt to land on Osage. Their mission is to answer questions that have plagued the world regarding the inhabitants of this lost planet.
Like any mystery, answers never come without being accompanied by more questions. Osage is no different and the new questions come with more peril than anyone could have possibly imagined.
