It's all just another day in that bastion of galactic peace and democracy, the Federation of the Hub-and somebody has to clean up this mess!Join secret agent Trigger Argee, scout adventurer Heslet Quillan and Holati Tate, master of intrigue, as they battle the criminal element on its own interstellar turf ... and make the future a little safer for the rest of us.
