Dylan Hunt awakes on the edge of a black hole called Hephaistos 300 years into the future. He discovers a group of mercenaries are attempting to hijack his ship. Once betrayed by their employer, he convinces the mercenaries to work with him so they do not get sucked back into the black hole that threatens them all. They pitch in, and once they have dealt with their employer, they agree to stay on board to help Dylan Hunt rebuild the Systems Commonwealth, but their motives are not always as altruistic as Dylan's. The crew must battle against 300 years of anarchy, as well as lethal enemies such as the Nietzscheans. They have further motivation to get this new Commonwealth established when they discover a dangerous enemy is on the move towards the known galaxies.
