Jobs has found the Remnants' unbelievable virtual reality in the sky-could it be the Earth? With the defeat of the Baby, Billy has secured his role as master-programmer and absorbed Mother in the process. If Jobs has really found the Earth, can Billy be convinced to alter the ship's course?
Meanwhile, Yago puts his plan in motion to rule the Meanies as their God- what does this mean for the future safety of the Remnants? How will Yago's ambitions clash with Jobs' search for a new home for the Remnants? Courses will change for the ship, for the Remnants... and the future of humankind.
Since the destruction of Earth, the Remnants have been stuck out in the universe without a planet to call home. While searching the skies, Jobs stumbles across something that looks vaguely familiar. Could it be part of Earth? Is it inhabitable? If it is, Jobs will have to convince Billy and the others to break the Big Compromise and change the ship's course.
But not all of the Remnants have home on their minds. Yago has a master plan to rule the Meanies that will put everyone at risk. Will Yago's plan for power keep Earth in the ditance? Courses will change--for Mother, for the Meanies, and for the future of the human race.
