Katrina's freedom has come at a cost. A cost too great for her to bear.
Though Katrina has seized control of the Midditerra System, she has more enemies now than ever before. Rumors that she is a powerful Streamer have begun to spread, and enemies of the Blackadder and Midditerra circle, looking for weaknesses they can exploit.

Katrina will have to find the strength to make herself whole, if she is to survive the wait for the Intrepid.
Though a part of her would welcome death...
