Во время обследования удаленной планеты, расположенной на другой стороне галактики, экипаж колониального корабля «Завет» обнаруживает, что то, что они изначально приняли за неизведанный рай, на самом деле — тёмный и опасный мир. Его единственный житель — синтетический андроид Дэвид, оставшийся в живых после обреченной экспедиционной миссии «Прометей».
