When winning isn’t an option, the only thing you can do is survive.
Set a few years after the Betelgeuse catastrophe, the repercussions of the civil war and the supernova are still affecting the local sector of the galaxy. Commander John Madison is first officer of a cargo ship, transporting equipment and supplies throughout the colonies.
An invasion strikes from outside the galaxy: a force that knows only death and destruction, taking out everything in its path and wiping out the allies’ best battle fleets.
Fleet Command needs every ship under its authority and Madison is thrown to the front lines to scout and treaty support with other worlds. Unable to do nothing, he will strike to protect those he cares about – no matter the consequences.
