War. The word spreads like wildfire.
The long-expected invasion is here. The Union force is even stronger than feared, their fleets larger and more powerful than intelligence reports had predicted. They have broken through the forward defenses, and sent the Confederation’s proud fleets into an ignominious retreat.
Captain Tyler Barron and the crew of the battleship Dauntless are lightyears from the front, waiting for their damaged battleship to be repaired. But there is no time to wait. The Confederation forces need every ship they can get, so Barron and his survivors board their vessel…and rush to the battle lines.
They encounter a shattered fleet, yielding system after system to the invaders. The Confederation is losing the war, unable to halt the irresistible enemy advance. And Dauntless finds herself trapped, cut off from the rest of the fleet, deep behind enemy lines.
Captain Tyler Barron must make a choice. Pull back, try to find a way to get around the enemy and rejoin the fleet. Or press on, strike deep behind the invaders – a reckless sortie toward the Union’s main supply base.
A suicide mission. But maybe the only way for the Confederation to survive.
