The Kleendarine war ended 40 years ago with the United Coalition of Earth victorious and authorized to defend the territories it liberated from Klin control. Now that authorization is about to end and the Blerenstian empire has objected to Earth’s continued support of these newly freed worlds. Their finest admiral has been called upon to lead the assault against the Coalition. With Earth unprepared, a massive invasion fleet stood ready to attack. The only hope now rests on the skills of Earth’s outnumbered defenders and a technological breakthrough that just might be ready in time to save humanity from the assault.
