The Earth Colony Asteroid Scorpio was launched into space in search of a new home for the human race. Nine-hundred years later than expected, only seven of the Scorpio s passengers awaken, not one of them an adult. Now, rebuilt with cyber parts, these kids must rely on each other to survive the mysteries of the Scorpio and the dangers of deep space. With no time to rest after surviving a zombie horde, the Scorpio crew is thrust into another night-mare adventure. This time the threat is seemingly living shadows terrorizing the ship and crew. The shadows appear like animals and move like smoke, except for one called The Big Shadow, who is solid and deadly. Fighting a solo battle, Security Chief Landon Fields sends his friends to safety, while he alone attempts to outwit the Big Shad-ow. He knows he must stay alive long enough to solve the mystery found in the Scorpio science labs!
