What if you dreamed someone else’s life?
Link has always made it a point to keep things simple. Now his waking life has become so stale he would rather be dreaming. His doctor gives him a prescription meant to keep him sharp throughout the day. The pills work so well Link begins to wonder if they will work even better when he is asleep.
In his dreams Link is transported across the universe to a colony of spaceships in search of a new home. He soon discovers half the fleet is in danger of extinction. The man whose body he occupies in his dreams is the one orchestrating their demise.
Of course all this is just in his head.
Link keeps telling himself that as he toys with the final remnants of an alien race in his dreams every night. He must decide whether his waking life deserves some attention at last or whether this might actually be a real space convoy needing his help. By the time he makes up his mind it may be too late for Link to do anything about either situation.
