It is 2071, and humanity is in its infancy on the great galactic stage. Busily colonising planets and systems, feeling perfectly safe and secure in their own little corner of the galaxy, completely oblivious to the myriad of other alien cultures that exist. That is, until several civilian mining vessels start to disappear, which leads Michael Alexander and Nikolai Vargev into a threat which could wipe out all of humanity, and a dilemma for Michael? He must choose between the devotion he holds for his family, and his devotion to his duty? Follow Michael and Nikolai's adventure as they travel to far flung distant worlds and embark on a desperate battle for survival against all odds and a far superior enemy in this the first of the chronicles of the E.D.F and an epic conflict that spans the stars themselves.
