Description

Milana, a brilliant bio-engineer, manages to genetically alter indigenous Lalandian plant forms to provide food, shelter, and even conductive and data-processing technologies for herself and her daughter. When Milana's old ally Joe Gallo manages to hijack the ship of her enemy Al King, Milana acts. Aided by her sentient plant creations Caliban and Ariel, and the buffoonery of various other passengers aboard Al King's ship (including Stephen the socialist atheist boatswain, Troy the drunken frat boy, Milana's evil brother Tony Conti, and Al's handsome son Fernando), Milana wins her freedom. She and Miranda will go home, and Prosper Inc. is hers again. But the plants, Caliban and Ariel? They have other ideas.
