THE FLEET: Pledged to Protect Us All

In the remote darkness of space, they’ve fought the most fiery battles the stars will ever witness. On hellish planets with poisoned atmospheres, they ward off the ruthless Khalian horde. Now the brave men and women of the Fleet face their greatest challenge ever . . . and they’re calling on the Alliance’s most startling technology to do so. From missiles endowed with human minds to self-replicating mechanical monsters, the war of the millennium will never be the same.
