In this final transcript from the "Helianthus," First Lieutenant Hyland Rivera confronts his own desire to take the vessel on a collision course with the sun, because as he says, “God told him to.” Torn between his love for Captain Zephaniah Cass, “the only other man in the universe” and his own fears, he grapples for any meaning in life and death. Once Zeph gets wind of Hy’s plans, the battle for the fate of the "Helianthus" begins.

This stand-alone short story from the Helium Quest series follows the events in "A Land Overflowing."
