The year is 2795. The Human race has evolved learned to share the galaxy with thousands more new lifeforms and civilisations. But something has gone wrong in this age of peace. A Confederate ship has gone missing 14,000 Light years from home. The CGV Winchester is commissioned early to investigate, however things are far worse than the crew could ever imagine.
