You can’t escape your programming....

It’s 2167, and high above the Earth orbits a vast transport where robot-specialist Dr. Margaret Mailer conducts sessions with Galatea 71, a member of a synthetic support crew once assigned to the deep space research vessel, Galatea. A hundred years ago, the ship disappeared with more than a thousand human passengers on board. Now rescued from an ancient escape shuttle after years of floating in deep cryogenic sleep, 71 engages with Dr. Mailer in a series of exercises designed to improve her social skills. As she learns what it means to shake hands, make friends, tell jokes and laugh, it becomes clear that 71 is guarding more than a few secrets. Meanwhile, Mailer seeks the answers to a number of world-changing questions including what, exactly, happened on the Galatea?
