Two astronauts, Adam Wade and Jake Carpenter, crash land on a faraway planet Anteres, which was colonized centuries ago, but cut off from the rest of the galaxy when all communication broke down. They discover a world ruled by a clan of warrior women led by the benevolent Sumuru who is at odds with another 'Amazon', Taxan, who sacrifices men to a giant snake which she and her tribe worship. To add to the planet's woes, its core is unstable and within months it is expected to explode.
