Synopsis

In the mid-21st century, the research vessel Ikaros has disappeared in space. Commander Veikko of the spaceship Laika assembles a crew to search for the missing ship.

 

But the mission is anything but routine: As the team travels through the meteoroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, they receive strange radio signals shortly before discovering the empty wreck of the Ikaros. The signals seem to point to the existence of a foreign civilization and the crew is afraid of a potential threat. Commander Veikko, however, is convinced that such a technically proficient civilization must advance beyond hostility and aggression.

 

Based on the novel Asteroidenjäger (Asteroid Hunters) by Carlos Rasch.
