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.

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?
