In 2566, after Khouri has successfully infiltrated the crew of the ''Nostalgia for Infinity'' as the ship's new gunnery officer, the ship arrives in orbit around Resurgam. Desperate to secure Sylveste's expertise to help cure their captain, triumvirs Volyova, [[Sajaki]] and [[Abdul Hegazi|Hegazi]] demand the fledgling Resurgam civilisation turn Sylveste over to them. When the government of the small human colony balks, Volyova reminds them of the power at the disposal of her massive ship by apparently wiping out one of the planet's settlements with a single discharge of the ''Infinity'''s weapons.

Once aboard, however, Sylveste turns the tables—he informs the triumvirs that he has [[Pin-head munitions|antimatter bombs]] hidden inside the implants in his artificial eyes. A detonation from one of those anti-matter bombs would be enough to destroy the ''Nostalgia for Infinity''. Emboldened, Sylveste makes a deal with the crew—he will attempt to cure their captain in exchange for them using their ship to take him closer to [[Cerberus]], a planet near Resurgam that carried particular significance for the Amarantin civilisation.
