The Orion Star Cluster locks its fledgling navy in combat with one of the most brilliant Terran admirals in its history. But in a routine pirate patrol, a young cruiser commander named Traci Ganner discovers a race of beings that possesses what the Empire does not--strike fighters! But to unleash them means betraying everyone she knows in order to save everyone she cares for.
