It is the year 2099, and mankind has taken great advances in its development of space travel: people sail through space in ships powered by photon-laser engines, and parts of the solar system have been colonized. The newly-built space schooner the Starlight is launched on a maiden voyage to venture beyond the boundaries of the system. The ship comes across a wrecked spacecraft, holding one lone member: a mysterious young woman named Sara Cyanbaker. The crew later discovers a series of artifacts on a lonely asteroid, which when examined, point to an ancient Norwegian mariner's folk song which mentions the Norse god Odin. Sara starts to have strange dreams of a place called Odin; with these facts, the crew deduces that Odin may actually exist as a planet, the place of paradise that is so often spoken of in mythology. And so a perilous journey begins towards the Canopus system in search of the planet Odin, which could be the possible cradle of life in the universe. Written by
