Jovian Shadows

The crew of the warship James K. Polk discover an attempted sabotage en route to quell a rebellion on Europa-1 station. Tensions run high as the ready-to-kill Marines bristle at having to take orders from inexperienced Navy commanders.

Meanwhile, the ship’s AI has been contacted by a mysterious voice from space, tempting it with the possibility of becoming more than just a computer…

Jovian Shadows is a character-centric story with a military sci-fi flavor, set in a near-future world where governments have consolidated under the banners of various corporations, competing for shares of resources through legal action or war. The world is unaware of any other life in the Universe, until the artificial intelligence on the Polk discovers something that will change the course of Humanity forever.
