The story so far:
The planet Thuringa has been ecologically destroyed by their enemy the Shargassi. The 35,000 survivors flee the dying planet in a hastily built Armada protected by the last of their warships. As they journey, many of the worlds they formerly knew as allies are forced to deny aid or must appear to be forced to give them aid. Thuringi king Lycasis Phillipi must rule his armada kingdom despite continued enemy attacks, natural phenomenon and malcontents who want to dismantle the monarchy. The populace slowly acclimates itself to the nomadic existence. The spirit of former Warrior General Maranta Shanaugh silently watches over his people. His mechanic, engineering genius Gareth Duncan, successfully wins a duel of honor against colonel Tomas Hellick in defense of Maranta’s widow, the princess royal of Thuringa.
