The Allied fleet has stopped the Nietzscheans at Pyra, but the battlefront grows wider day by day.
While Sera distributes the Transcend's fleets to protect the alliance, Tanis must come to grips with what happened to her on Pyra's surface. In addition, Bob conveys a number of hard truths that will force her to re-think her role in humanity's future.
But the allies' enemies are not sitting idle. General Greer, Justin, the Caretaker, and Airtha are all advancing plans to see their visions of the future come true.
Tanis must take the next step if she's to hold back the tide of war that threatens to swallow the galaxy.
