Angus Thermopyle is an evil an unsuccessful space pirate. When he enters a bar on a mining space station accompanied with a beautiful young woman, Morn Hyland, the patrons wonder how that happened. Another, better looking pirate, Nick Succorso, confronts Angus and somehow rescues Morn. It sounds like a classical drama of captor, victim and rescuer. The real story however is that Angus was chased by a United Mining Company Police vessel aboard which Morn was serving. Suffering from undiagnosed gap-sickness, she lost control and provoked the vessel to self-destruct. Angus rescued her, installed a zone implant in her brain (for which he could be executed if caught) to control her actions and prevent her from destroy his beloved ship, and used the implant to torture Morn into submission to him. He however unexpectedly grew emotionally attached to her. When Nick leaves suddenly the station to raid a ship in distress just before it is locked down, Angus, who has been monitoring his communications, follows him. Th ship however does not exist, it is all a trap set by Nick with the complicity of someone in station security. Nick cripples Angus' ship, and flies slowly back to the station. There Nick makes secretely contact with Morn who helps him frame Angus for stealing stations supplies. She negotiates the zone implant's remote control from Angus in exchange for her silence about the illegal installation of the device. Morn leaves in Nick's ship and Angus is arrested but his life is spared, making Morn his rescuer.
