Description, by Sam Tomaino [SFRevu]: "Dharthi has a theory that the original indigenous species on Venus (called Cythereans), extinct for 10,000 years, were based in a different place than everyone thinks they were. The local University did not believe her and refused her a resource allocation so she has set out on her own in a very risky adventure", driven to prove herself against her own feelings of inadequacy.
