The Commonwealth Union of Planets begin their mission to the Saiph Worlds. To seek out their genetic cousins cited in the alien database, to unravel the secrets of their enemy and exploit any weakness. The "others" capture The Happy Wanderer and her precious navigation system. The Union's future flounders, as they're fatally exposed to a catastrophic betrayal at the hands of the Alonian Empire.
The Commonwealth rise triumphant over the merciless "Others". The war is over. Pioneers of the Commonwealth race to colonize virgin worlds but do not foresee the chilling Turak with their clear communiqué, "Do not enter Turak space!" Without warning, a deadly offensive is launched on the planet Balat, shattering the fragile uneasy truce between the Alonans and the Commonwealth as blame is wrongly attributed. The prospect of galactic war looms once more.
