This is the story of just how close the human race comes to being enslaved by the race that conquered the Newcomers and enslaved them. A special soldier from one of their ships lands and ingratiates himself with George's family. He also becomes close to Cathy, and causes George's family to want to exhibit more of their Tencton culture, eventually almost causing the family to permanently drift apart.
There's also the problem of a virus left from the final episode of the series, a virus that the Purists plan to use to kill every single Newcomer that there is.
Another plot theme is Sikes not like this new Newcomer's interactions with Cathy.
Eventually, various plot elements that were left open when the series ended are resolved, and the special soldier shows mercy, probably for the only time in his life. It's a very dark, very disturbing story.
