The skin of the powerful heavy cruiser Cuzot burned bright red as it ripped through a conduit in the dark reaches of the M87 galaxy, in pursuit of a small armored shuttle. A great gout of violet-blue laser fire leapt from the cruiser’s forward cannons to tear into the shuttle. For a moment the shuttle seemed to slow down. Then it regained velocity and vanished from view.
Pran High Admiral Meiran shot up from his command chair on the bridge of the Cuzot, his slit-like eyes riveted to the main viewscreen. “Get him!” he roared at the tense bridge crew. “Jump! Now!”
The chase was coming at the tail end of the bloody Pran uprising. In a tremendous wave of rebellion, the humanoid Prana had risen against their Srin masters throughout all starsystems, as if the collective Pran consciousness was throwing off the iron hand that had created them in labs and kept them in slavery for generations. Now, reduced to fleeing in a shuttle—where once they had commanded powerful navies—were the Srin kingpins.
