It is the 31st century, and mankind has taken to exploring the stars. Ulysses, captain of the spaceship Odysseus, takes his son Telemachus on a space journey for his 12th birthday. When the children onboard the ship are kidnapped by an alien race to be sacrificed to a giant Cyclops, Ulysses rescues his son and in turn angers the Gods. His interference is punished severely – his entire crew are left frozen in stasis, and his ship’s computer, Shirka, has her memory erased so she can no longer plan a route back to Earth. Cast into the depths of space, Zeus commands Ulysses to find the realm of Hades before being allowed to journey back home. Along the way, the scant crew meet travellers who have felt the wrath of the Gods, and others who have been commanded to impede or even kill those onboard the Odysseus. Will Ulysses ever make it home, or do the Gods have a much more twisted plan in mind for the space explorer?
