At the far edges of explored space…
…the unexpected can be deadly.
Battered by decades of self-destructive system wars, humanity is united and pushing further into the void of space.
Fresh from the Academy, Lieutenant Auri Chen is given command of the aging starship Valiant. A ragged veteran of past wars, it’s long overdue for the scrap yard.
The mysterious disappearance of a famous holo-star and her ship sends the Valiant on a hasty rescue mission.
Beset by failing systems and an inexperienced crew, their voyage into the unknown is full of dangerous surprises.
Something dark lurks in the icy-cold shadows of the distant Arcturus system. Their discovery could upend humanity’s tenuous peace and put the entire crew in mortal peril.
Can Chen and her crew rescue the lost ship and make it out alive while a hostile world awakens around them?
Will humanity survive the galactic threat that slumbers within?
