In a distant future, Odynexus set out on a journey to the stars. His travels led him to the vicinity of the planet Troya, where mechanical, godlike creatures were capturing all the starships navigating around it. Odynexus defeated them one by one, until he was able to destroy PRIAM, the sentient AI who controlled them.
Poseidon, the eternal god of the cosmic ocean, was angry, as PRIAM was his creation. But he was also a vengeful god, and he vowed to punish Odynexus for his actions.
Now on his way back to Ithaca, his home, Odynexus explores new worlds, makes new friends, and learns about the universe. But before he can meet his wife Penelope again, he still has to face the most terrible dangers: sentient machines, the electronic demigods that Poseidon is sending his way.
