The time is a distant future. SunOne Command has drafted four black astronauts to crew a remote engineering aft -- zsf-e5 -- on a far-flung tour of duty. The crew do not know why theyve been drafted. The on-board Computer might know, but isnt telling. Command offers no explanation and anyway its explanations cannot be trusted. Black Star Rising tells of the crews lives together -- the pains and possibilities, conflicts and celebrations. Pawns in the war between Logos and SunOne, subject to the whims of Command Control in a future world where black lives still count for less, the crew battle on. When adversity strikes, the key question is: can they hold together long enough to survive? Featuring four richly drawn characters in Captain Mandella, Sky, Kaya and Triple, deeply themed, and convincing, Black Star Rising projects a black future that is at once engaging and challenging. It is 100degrees in the void. Colder when love freezes.
