    Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

    When Ivan Pritchard signs on as a newbie aboard the Mad Astra, it's his final, desperate stab at giving his wife and children the life they deserve. He can survive the hazing of his crewmates, and how many times, really, can near-zero g make you vomit?

    Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

    Bob kann es nicht fassen. Eben hat er noch seine Software-Firma verkauft und einen Vertrag über das Einfrieren seines Körpers nach seinem Tod unterschrieben, da ist es auch schon vorbei mit ihm. Er wird beim Überqueren der Straße überfahren. Hundert Jahre später wacht Bob wieder auf, allerdings nicht als Mensch, sondern als Künstliche Intelligenz, die noch dazu Staatseigentum ist. Prompt bekommt er auch gleich seinen ersten Auftrag: Er soll neue bewohnbare Planeten finden. Versagt er, wird er abgeschaltet. Für Bob beginnt ein grandioses Abenteuer zwischen den Sternen - und ein gnadenloser Wettlauf gegen die Zeit.

    Eigentlich hat Bob Johansson nie an ein Leben nach dem Tod geglaubt. Als er nach einem tödlichen Autounfall als Künstliche Intelligenz eines Raumschiffes wieder erwacht, ist er natürlich geschockt. Doch damit nicht genug - er ist der intelligente Computer von Neuman Probe, das heißt er wurde tausendfach repliziert. Bob und seine Kopien werden ausgeschickt, um in den Tiefen des Weltalls nach neuen, bewohnbaren Planeten zu suchen.
