Description:

The Fleet! - Pledged to Protect Us All!

At last, after a bloody and
ferocious war, their hated and feared Khalian enemies have surrendered. But the brave men and women of the Fleet cannot enjoy their hard-won victory, for now they face the secret power behind the Khalian invasion: The ruthless Syndicate of Families.

The Syndicate controls thousands of alien races and worlds, and possesses advanced technology far beyond anything the Fleet has faced before. Worst of all, the Syndicate is ruled by humans. How can the Fleet, already exhausted from one grueling war, hope to win this even greater conflict - and fight against a stealthy and deadly human foe capable of infiltrating the ranks of the Fleet itself?
