"In the year 2204, tragedy and terror forced a scientific team to prematurely evacuate the rare, life-supporting planet of Maleiva III. Nineteen years later, it is hurtling through space and the opportunity to study it is about to be obliterated. With less than three weeks left before disaster, superluminal pilot Priscilla 'Hutch' Hutchins - the only even remotely qualified professional within light years of the ill-fated planet - must lead a small scientific team to the surface to glean whatever they can about its life forms ad lost civilizations before time runs out. But catastrophe awaits when they are stranded on the strange and complex world of puzzles and impossibilities. And now Hutch and her people must somehow survive a hostile world going rapidly mad, as the clock ticks toward apocalypse for a doomed enigma now called Deepsix."--Back cover

A working stargate dating back more than ten thousand years has been discovered in North Dakota, on a Sioux reservation near Devils Lake. Travel through the gate currently leads to three equally mysterious destinations: (1) an apparently empty garden world, quickly dubbed Eden; (2) a strange maze of underground passageways; or (3) a space station with a view of a galaxy that appears to be the Milky Way. The race to explore and claim the stargate quickly escalates, and those involved divide into opposing camps who view the teleportation technology either as an unprecedented opportunity for scientific research or a disastrous threat to national -- if not planetary -- security. In the middle of the maelstrom stands Sioux chairman James Walker. One thing is for certain: questions about what the stargate means for humanity's role in the galaxy cannot be ignored. Especially since travel through the stargate isn't necessarily only one way
