Several hundred years after Helva was commissioned, Nancia takes her commission as XN-935. Her first trip is to transport five troublesome progeny of high-level families. Nancia finds her cargo have no respect for her or others, so she does not communicate with most of them. Most of the passengers do not realize Nancia is a Brain-ship, so under assumption she is a Drone-ship they conspire to break laws. After five years the passengers will see who has accumulated the greatest wealth. Her recording systems capture the conspiracy, and years later her travels bring her up against the network that the five have been operating.
Also in this series are The City and The Ship, The Ship Who Saved the Worlds, THE SHIP WHO SANG, The Ship who Searched, The City who Fought, The Ship Who Won
