Arriving on an unidentified planet in the Tarron system, the fugitives discover a mysterious group of archaeologists digging up some strange objects in the dirt and sand on a barren world. One of their number, Feeld, believes that this discovery could lead to the biggest revelation regarding the origin of the human race - an origin with alien involvement.

Before too long, however, Style and Asimov have a mystery of their own on their hands.

What is the significance of the remains Feeld and the archaeologists have discovered? Why is a flattened ration tin the most important item on the planet? With the Federation closing in, and time running out, will the fugitives discover the connection between the remains on this planet and the secret Federation code word 'Brigand'?
