From the back of the book:
Thirty thousand years before the formation of the Imperium, a massive colony ship left the Milky Way, bound for a distant galazy. Created by an ancient race, the Azyrri, the Azyr Nebula would launch a genetic Seeding experiment that would take thirty millennia to complete.... Unforseen by the Azyrri, an accident on the ship's return to the Milky Way cuts short the experiment just months before its scheduled termination. The mishap leaves the ship's passengers - two competing races - stranded together on the planet Thurzaj. The Azyrri vanish, unable to witness the fate of the craft or its cargo.... But a few bold travels encounter the Nebula on its bizarre, suspended mission. What secrets lie sealed within the Legacy of the Ancients?
