Captain Galvin Quintos had returned home to Earth soon after liberating Ironhold Station from a ruthless band of Pylorian pirates.
But the Grish had been waiting for his transport ship – an attack he barely survived. Now, three months later, he’s still recuperating within the walls of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
Just today, Quintos has learned of a new intergalactic adversary – a highly advanced alien force, the Varapin – who are currently en route from the Andromeda Galaxy. Intel has it, these ghoulish-looking aliens are now aligned with the Grish, and together, they’re hell-bent on annihilating all humanity. Quintos, certain his crew has already moved on to other posts and his ship, the USS Hamilton, surely still in space dock with battle damage, must figure out how to get back into the fight, and do so fast.
