Over forty years after evacuating Earth and finding themselves marooned on Faloiv, the elite Whitecoat scientists still discover new wonders in the world outside their colony of N’Terra. Octavia dreams of the day she joins her scientist parents, and the early internships offer her and her classmates the chance to study Faloiv’s extraordinary natural world with the Whitecoats. However, Octavia finds herself strangely empathetic to the animals they study, and she and her friends discover some of the scientists’ experiments have sinister motives. Eventually, Octavia questions everything she knows of N’Terra’s history and its tenuous relationship with their hosts, the Faloii.
