The end of the 30th century. All candidates for resource extraction in the Milky Way galaxy have been colonized and exploited. Lacking the technology to make further expansion profitable, Earth’s energy/tech conglomerates finally collapse.

One by one, exhausted colonies drop off charts of the known galaxy, left to survive on their own.

On the world called Harpoon, once famous for its warm subterranean oceans and titanic oilfish, the abandoned colonists eke out a living amid the ruins of their overconfidence. The bigger fish having long been wiped out, the massive empty refineries now simply stand as a warning: take only what you need.

It is custom that every adult Harpoonean know how to hunt for themselves, and a First Dive is no small thing. This youth has traveled days on foot to complete his rite of passage; and he will spend at least another in the tunnels before he reaches the ocean-caves below.
