The interstellar corporation General Transit is set to inaugurate the use of its teleporter which allow instantaneous planet to planet transport for the first time, but someone has sabotaged Earth's solar platform which provides the energy that powers the teleporter. Someone has also kidnapped Volans Mirfak, an engineer who is important to the teleporter project.

At the heart of these problems is the planet Alioth, a world rife with economic and political intrigue. General Transit executive Dion Rendahl arrives on Alioth to investigate and is immediately plunged into the factional conflicts which embroil this volatile society.
