Other Systems

Would you go to a planet that has never known war, hunger, or even a single murder?
Other Systems explores the difficulties of space travel, planetary colonization, and the loss of friends, family, and identity due to time dilation and the distance between stars.
Humans established a utopian colony on Kipos, an Earth-like planet orbiting a Sol twin. Unfortunately, birth rates plummet and without an influx of human DNA, Kipos has eleven generations before failure. With Earth over ninety light-years away, time is short. On the over-crowded Earth, many see opportunity in Kipos's need. After medical, intelligence, and physiological testing, Abby and her younger siblings, Jin and Orchid, are offered transportation. Along with 750,000 other strong young immigrants, they leave the safety of their family with the expectation of good jobs and the opportunity for higher education.
Terrified that Earthlings will taint their paradise, the Kiposi pass a series of indenture and adoption laws in order to assimilate the savages. When Abby wakes up on Kipos, Jin cannot be found. Orchid is ripped from her arms as Abby is sold to a dull-eyed man with a sterilized wife. Indentured to breed, she is drugged and systematically coerced. To survive, Abby learns the differences in culture and language using the only thing that is truly hers on this new world: her analytical mind. Haunted by the agony of her loss, but determined, she joins a planetary survey team where she will discover yet another way of life.
