A _Ringmaster_ ​kutatóűrhajó Cirocco Jones kapitánynő parancsnoksága alatt a Szaturnusz holdjainak tanulmányozására indul. Nagy meglepetésükre felfedeznek egy eleddig ismeretlen holdat, amelyről azonnal megállítható, hogy mesterséges eredetű. De kik építették ezt a holdat? Hogyan került ide? És vajon mióta és milyen céllal tartózkodik a Naprendszerben? Amikor a _Ringmaster_ közelebb megy, hogy választ találjon ezekre a kérdésekre, a hold kinyúl feléjük idegen dokkolóberendezésével, és egyszerűen felfalja őket - hajóstul, felszerelésestül, mindenestül. Cirocco Jones egyedül tér magához az ismeretlen objektum felületén, és elindul, hogy megtalálja társait, és megvívja küzdelmét az életben maradásért ezen az idegen és csodálatos világon.

John Varley - Slow ​Apocalypse
Despite ​wars with Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as 9/11, the United States’ dependence on foreign oil has kept the nation tied to the Middle East. A scientist has developed a cure for America’s addiction—a slow-acting virus that feeds on petroleum, turning it solid. But he didn’t consider that his contagion of an Iraqi oil field could spread to infect the fuel supply of the entire world… In Los Angeles, screenwriter Dave Marshall heard this scenario from a retired US marine and government insider who acted as a consultant on Dave’s last film. It sounded as implausible as many of his scripts, but the reality is much more frightening than anything he could have envisioned. An ordinary guy armed with extraordinary information, Dave hopes his survivor’s instinct will kick in so he can protect his wife and daughter from the coming apocalypse that will alter the future of Earth—and humanity…
