Summary :

The unigen was an intelligent creature. Though it was made purely of a substance that was neither matter nor yet energy, it needed energy to survive. It was not evil in any sense of the word, but it was not benign either. It simply was. When one of its nodes senses an abundant outcropping of radiactive minerals on a temperate planet, it streaks toward the food source unaware that a ship full of humans has also chosen the site as a starting point to explore the newly discovered globe.

Their meeting will be life-altering for unigen and man alike.
