Day by day, the sentient planet is learning to recognize and understand the meaning of outside stimuli, to communicate its own needs and desires...even to use human speech. The Petaybeans have their hands full trying to protect their beloved planet from the sudden influx of tourists. Then some of Petaybee's staunchest champions are kidnapped.
Strange things are happening on the icy planet of Petaybee. Unauthorized, genetically engineered species have been spotted, and the company has reason to believe that the locals are deliberately hiding something, and perhaps even plotting rebellion. As a combat veteran and a medical retiree due to spend the rest of her days on this arctic world, Yana is the ideal person to get close to the natives.

Petaybee was growing up. Day by day the sentient planet was learning to recognize and understand the meaning of outside stimuli, to respond to those stimuli, to communicate its own needs and desires...even to use human speech. But few outsiders truly cared for the feelings and intelligence of what they perceived to be a giant hunk of rock or a mere oddity to be gawked at. Some came to worship the newly awakened soul.
The struggle between the Amalgamation and the evil Consortium heats up as rebels assault the planet Quatro Cinco. This full-cast presentation stars Marina Sirtis, Counselor Deanna Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Ecosystems always exist in fragile balance, but imagine a planet that is sentient! On icy Petaybee, the planet itself seems to be orchestrating its own evolution - but the planet is also rich in exploitable resources, and the ruthless company Integral is poised to take advantage. Yana, an ex-company soldier with strong ties to the native Petaybeans - and the planet itself - tries to mediate with the company, but it isn't enough.
