In college, Alex Copeland assists an astronomer planning to traverse an alien wormhole, but the government abruptly cancels the project. Seven years later, Alex is invited on shuttle Status Quo as part of an untrained crew. The astronomer’s daughter was in a mental hospital; the teen pilot plays on a simulator; his mother is supposedly psychic. An incompetent doctor, a troubled teen, a convicted murderer, and Alex's cat are also aboard. The project director wants no one to return to Earth - ever. Is Status Quo doomed?
