Synopsis: After mining complex ices deep in the Solar System, Jack Smith is concerned about his profit margin, but is it him who doesn't want to face quarantine or something squirming inside him? The Cryon Corporation Director, Geoffry Haven, is also concerned about the bottom line and might consider Jack an expense he can no longer afford. Meanwhile, the human and non-human agents of World Health must investigate because the parasite is coming to Earth, and it's hungry.
