VENUS PRIME
  rustyoldboat | May 28, 2011 |
Sparta wakes up to find a very serious gap in her memory. Looking in the mirror, she realises she is no normal girl. There are people out to get her, so she bails.

Superhuman senses and the ability to directly interface with computers through your fingers come in handy in times like this.

She manages to disappear into a government job, until she is promoted to become an investigator, and sent to investigate an accident on a space liner.

By the end of this, she begins to learn about the organisation behind the program that created her, and their desire to create superhumans.
