Teaser

Federation resistance leader Roj Blake learns that his memories have been selectively tampered with by the Federation, and is now being accused of crimes he did not commit.
Synopsis
Life in the domed city of the future is secure and comfortable for Roj Blake until he discovers the nightmare that contradicts everything he knows and threatens to end his life on earth.

Seeking information about his family, Roj Blake accompanies a couple of activists out of the dome city and once outside he meets a man who appears to know him. Foster tells Blake that he was once the leader of a powerful underground faction - but was captured and has been brainwashed by the authorities - and is needed again in the resistance movement.

Shocked by these revelations, Blake asks for some time to think over what he's learned and walks off through the underground tunnels; while there he hears approaching troops and quickly hides, from where he witnesses the slaughter of all the activists.

Following his attempts to sneak back into the dome, he is caught by the spy, Dev Tarrant. Awaking in a prison cell, he discovers that he is being charged with child molesting - in an effort to discredit him.

He convinces his lawyer that the charges are false, but when the lawyer uncovers evidence to corroborate this, the lawyer is killed and Blake finds himself in a holding cell awaiting deportation to the planet Cygnus Alpha. It is in this cell where Blake meets Vila Restal and Jenna Stannis - also enroute to the prison planet.
