While engaging in a virtual reality program, a stranger appears to Morgan and directs him to take the colonists to a nearby location. In doing so, they discover the wreckage of a 50-year old Earth sleeper ship.
Meanwhile, Morgan attempts to waken the still-alive occupants of the craft from their sleep, but only two survive. The survivors are able to diagnose an ailment that is killing the colonists as the result of the malfunction of neural implants that the Earth government placed in the colonists without their knowledge. The scientists also disclose that a powerful Earth government computer, named "Eve" is in orbit around the planet and has been monitoring the colonists' activities through the implants.
Elsewhere, the scientists die from the effects of their long cryogenic sleep, they warn the colonists that they will all die because the planet will reject them.
Later, Devon callapses from an unknown ailment that is related to the planet's rejection of the humans. The colonists place her in a cryogenic chamber in the wrecked craft, with the hope that Uly's symbiosis with the Terrians will someday provide a cure for Devon.
