A Chameleon World
Beneath the icy exterior of Europa, warm ocean satellite of Jupiter, is located the Aquametro, New Paris, headquarters of the seabed mining colony where Europa Gold is excavated to power inter-stellar ships searching for a new sun with habitable worlds. The 23rd Century colonisation of the planets established, World Government's corruption spreads out like a web amongst it all; to the Jovian System, and ultimately, beyond. Sirius is the destination for the star ships and the men of Earth, but ahead ventures Julian Thane, an outcast rebel of the domed cities of the motherworld. Pursuing him, across nine light years come the Trackerz, the super men of the future, the merciless elite of the SSS, the Special Space Service, for Thane has something they want, and they mean to spare nothing ensuring its retrieval. Upon Salamanika, fourth planet of Sirius, Thane attempts to establish a colony free from ties with the all-powerful bureaucrats he and his friends have escaped. However, it is there where matters slip from both his hands and those of his enemies, for awaiting them is an ordeal beyond the realms of mere earthly imagination.
