Biography[edit | edit source]
Shay is a human boy living on the spaceship Bassinostra. He was sent on a mission to discover a new planet for his people as his, Loruna, is dying. He is watched over by the shapeship's artificial intelligence whom he calls "Mom" and "Dad". Mom keeps watch over him during the daytime, while Dad takes care of him at night. The Mom computer does not allow Shay to take any risks and treats him as if he were still a small child. This creates conflict which eventually leads Shay to attempt to take over the ship.
