Alexandra Koe was taken from Bay Jack at birth. Because she was placed in the Coalition Social Aid System, she was tattooed with a Zero, and all rights as a citizen were taken from her. Zero means nothing, and that is what she was to society. At the age of nineteen, she has returned to the planet Bay Jack to find her family, restore her citizenship, and remove the Zero tattoo. She is not alone on her journey. Coalition military assassins have followed her to Bay Jack.
