By the late 23rd Century, most
humans have left the polluted, almost unhabitable Earth to live in huge space stations.
However, over time, new generations have begun to develop the Syndrome, a disease that
leaves its young victims weak and bedridden. Among them is Ulysses, the son of Devon
Adair, an extremely wealthy and influential young woman. She believes that a natural
environment will help to cure her son and other children afflicted with the Syndrome, and
she organizes the Eden Project -- to colonize G-889, an unexplored Earth-like planet about
22 light years away. Upon arrival at G-889 in a sleeper ship, something goes wrong and the
advance team crash lands on the opposite side of the planet from where their supplies have
been delivered. Among the survivors who must trek across this mysterious planet are Devon
and her son Ulysses; Ulysses's tutor, a cyborg named Yale; engineer John Danziger and his
almost-teenage daughter True; pilot Alonzo Solace; doctor Julia Heller; and Earth
government representative Morgan Martin and his wife Bess.
Although G-889 outwardly appears
very Earth-like, it is inhabited by many strange indigenous life forms. Principle among
them are the Terrians, a tribal community of intelligent beings who live underground and
possess some form of telepathic powers, and the Grendlers, more animal-like nomadic
traders and scavengers. The stranded colonists soon learn that they are not the first
humans on G-889, as they encounter convicted criminals marooned on the planet by the Earth
government and secret government agents sent to monitor the colonists' activities.
Although they have some technological devices saved after their crash, the colonists are
basically on their own, having to survive off this strange land.
