A huge alien object has entered the solar system and is now poised above the Earth. It has made no attempt to communicate.
Out of time and options, NASA turns to its last living astronaut - Commander Sally Jansen, who must lead a new team in an old spacecraft to discover the object's purpose and hopefully make First Contact.
But as the object reveals its secrets, what started as a mission of discovery becomes a struggle for survival - not just for Jansen's team, but for the whole of humanity.
