Elysium Shining : A young human from early-2000s Earth ends up on a spaceship, bound for home dozens of light-years away, due to an accident involving a transmat device.
The same accident turns this human into a member of an alien race, particularly in the body of a young woman believed to be dead. Not wanting to go back, she takes on a new name and life among the society that’s more than willing to take her in.
Meanwhile, this distant, advanced society capable of many great things has a problem of its own involving a growing force of insurgents and cultists, and one of its more renowned and powerful members begins to question herself and her role among them.
Now, both young women are thrust into a journey for identity, love, belonging, and family.
Admiral Fjorfolia laughed with a fist over his mouth. He walked back toward Tong-Chang, and stopped for a moment.
“Captain Druvvin,” he said, “I return your ship and its presence to you. Ensign, you may lead on.”
Das’ithrios whispered to his parents a moment later, but his mother raised a hand to stop him. His father said something about including her, nodding to Dylan. The three of them joined around her, and they sat on the sofas.
The older gentleman said, “Before we say anything else, I want to apologize. You might have heard some muffled shouts and screams from inside the other room. One of the topics up for discussion is whether or not you are a spy, our daughter, or somehow both. Both your testimony and the circumstances suggest a negative to either count, but we are still reaching that agreement.”
“I’d be double-oh-crap as a spy,” Dylan remarked. The trio around her glanced at her hand gestures and back at her face. “What?”
“Are you sure you’re not Il’lyse?” the mother asked.”
