There was unrest and a growing revolution in the Narcadian solar system where many opposed the leadership and policies of the United Planets Association (UPA). The UPA, which had pulled the solar system back from the brink of self-destruction, now had a fragile hold on the five planets and the inhabitants living there. Asid, the leader of the revolution, led a secret mission to colonize a planet outside the influence of the UPA. He was pursued across the galaxy by the UPA Defense Command with orders to return him and his fleet of spaceships to Narcadia at all cost. Asid, who had never failed at a goal he set for himself, would need to overcome cultural divide, paranoia, and conspiracy to be successful. Battle lines were drawn, reaching from Outpost, to Utopia, and then on to Refuge. Commander Ottoman thought he might need the resources of Depot, which he would, but Asid would also need Depot. Thus, Depot became a major asset in the game of 'hide and seek' along the course profiles in a mysterious space that neither really understood. The Project BoWeEvil team joined Ottoman in his quest for Asid. Dan had an odd feeling that he could not shake. Had he missed something important? He had, and he must figure out what it was, and soon. The security of every planet in the galaxy depended on it.
