The lightship Altares leaves Space Station Delta on the first stage of a mission of scientific discovery beyond the solar system, a journey to Alpha Centauri, four light years from Earth. On board are two complete family units: Dr. Tom Bowen with his wife Anna and son David, and Captain Harry Masters with his daughter Jane.

Their work at Alpha Centauri completed, the two families elect to continue deeper into space but the computer guidance system malfunctions and the Altares is hit by a meteorite shower.
