In the year 2595, immense starships the size of Europe's largest countries act as humanity's sole means of transportation to the stars. Owned and operated by a government-owned Chinese corporation, these ISLAND Liners have allowed humanity to colonize the galaxy with the use of a mysterious technology known as WeT Tech. Employed solely aboard China's ISLAND Liners, all that is known about WeT Tech is that it works - allowing humanity to travel to other worlds. The technology, however, is deeply flawed, used by the Chinese only because no other means to travel quickly between planets exists. Operating from the core of each gargantuan ISLAND, lost and all but forgotten, it's only a matter of time before disaster occurs, but after hundreds of years of colonization and with humanity spread across dozens of planets, there is little the Chinese can do but continue operation and hope nothing goes wrong. But something does. The ISLAND Liner Sierra Madre is left adrift in the depths of space and its WeT Tech is charging itself for a trip to an unknown destination. Compounding matters is that the most powerful technology known to man is now vulnerable, and something so powerful in the wrong hands could alter the economic and political landscape throughout the colonies. In a race against time, military operators, intelligence operatives, mercenaries, and others with more hidden agendas will make the arduous trek to the very center of the Sierra Madre to reach the lost technology first. The journey will be long and dangerous, but it will reveal more about the enigmatic WeT Tech than anybody has ever dreamed possible.A bold Military SF adventure mixed with elements of a larger Space Opera, Starfarer: Rendezvous with Destiny will unravel the truth behind humanity's place in the galaxy, and will explore the question of whether or not our future truly rests among the stars. --Provided by publisher
