In 2057, the Sun is dying and Earth is freezing. Eight international astronauts pilot a colossal stellar bomb aboard the spaceship Icarus II, with the intent of jump-starting the Sun and then returning to Earth. As they slingshot past Mercury, Icarus II picks up the distress beacon of Icarus I, the first ship to attempt a similar mission, which disappeared seven years earlier. The ship’s proximity to Mercury kept its signals from reaching Earth, but allowed Icarus II to intercept it. Reasoning that two payloads have a better chance of success than one, the ship’s physicist Capa recommends to Kaneda, the captain, that they change course and commandeer Icarus I. Mace, the ship’s engineer, opposes the deviation as risky. Navigator Trey calculates and implements a trajectory to intercept Icarus I, but forgets to realign the shields that protect the ship from the sun, causing damage to four shield panels which if not repaired could destroy the whole ship and immolate the crew.

Kaneda and Capa embark on a spacewalk to make repairs, assisted by the pilot, Cassie, who angles the damaged portion of the shield away from the Sun. As expected, this leads to the loss of two protruding communications towers; however, reflected light also destroys the ship’s oxygen garden and oxygen reserves, much to the horror of botanist Corazon.
