To bring the subject of aliens into humanity's face, Seth Gingko has started the First Interplanetary War, and now he's got to deal with the consequences.
He's also handed over blueprints of his alien-souped ship to the Fellowship; they'll clone it and use the new design against the Tysilions.
Putting himself and his friends in the front line against the alien menace, he fights against the tentacled Tysilions. Unfortunately, since the Fellowship now have his design, he's also about to find he's surplus to requirements.
So much for friendship, huh?
Ah well, he's always worked better as a maverick.
Seth's off on another adventure...
