Babe, the Sheep Pig is the story of one piglet's rise to become the world famous "sheep-pig". When Babe is won by Farmer Hogget at the village fair an extraordinary friendship develops, one that will change the whole farm. With the help of his new "mother", the old dog Fly, Babe fast learns the herding instinct, and it's not long before this most polite of pigs wins over the most suspicious of sheep. When the day of the Grand Challenge Sheep-Dog Trials dawns, the whole farm holds its breath to see whether Babe will triumph, against all odds, to become the hero of the hour.

The ARK System began taking control of Earth Enterprise in 2050 A.D. as a technical aid to global commerce. People world over enjoy "contentment"—sheltered, useful lives that are stress and disease free—except for those who are deemed "useless" and face banishment to the Wilderness, or worse. In this futuristic re-envisioning of the Joan of Arc story, Joan is called not by saints or angels, but by an unexplained presence on her transcommunicator and a forbidden visitor to her Life/Work Station. Her mission is to unify the people of Earth Enterprise in their rebellion against tyranny. Joan brings support to the besieged Transcommunication Center at Orleans and eventually faces interrogation and martyrdom. In the process, many questions are raised about the use and abuse of technology, individual rights and responsibilities, the role of faith and the power of music.
