Simi Duan has led an unorthodox life. Her famous explorer father disappeared when she was an infant. Her mother used this event to launch her own business constructing space stations. Simi took over the business and turned it into a mega-corporation unrivaled by any in her time. This success has come at a cost: privacy, social connection, trust. Her newest venture, the Duan Gardens, has pushed the patience of her rivals, both in business and politics, and landed Simi in the crosshairs of a half dozen enemies.
