The ship Bethlem looms at the edge of the very last unexplored frontier. A group of Potemkixians prepare themselves to represent the apex of the universe through the conquering of this black monster. But a series of mysterious messages call for revolution on their home planet Potemkix – the zenith of efficiency and cohesion – which stands upon the fringes of civil and political upheaval. The crew aboard Bethlem face the same suppression and as time continues on, a crewman named Potemkin, sees a striking reflection between their ship and home planet. Even more, he is tugged between duty and self right, to remain or go beyond. As contention rises at both ends, the revolution on Potemkix is thwarted by the execution of the rebel leader, but catalyzes action aboard the ship. At last, Potemkin discovers his identity through riot and loss within to contend with the mutiny aboard Bethlem. Will he become their leader and go beyond the event horizon or lurk at the brink, either way himself.
