In the distance future humans have a very minor role in the galazxy. When a human sleeper ship arrives at the Rings of Orbis, only the children survive and are forced to work as knud-niks (slaves). Soon Johnny Turnbull discovers that he is a softwire, a special gift that allows him to enter any computer system with his mind. Softwires are rare in the galaxy so now Citizens of the Rings are bidding/arresting/kidnapping to get Johnny's ability. Meanwhile Johnny discovers a virus destroying the computer system at Orbis. Can he alert the authorities the this danger? Can he better the situation for humans with his ability?
