The Home World of the intractable Fornyth Dynasty is in the cross-hairs of the United Galactic Worlds Space Fleet. LCDR Katharine Reynolds, commanding the famed 397th Tactical Fighter Wing knows first hand how dangerous and intractable they are. When her wing is almost destroyed due to suicidal orders by a vindictive superior, things get interesting for Katy and not in a good way. An assault, an attack, a trial, a verdict, a battle, a plan, an obligation, the obliteration of the Fornyth, the end of the war, a reassignment, another obligation, another trial, a mix-up, and a resignation from Fleet.
With her companions Torgith, a Methonian who owes her a life debt, and Torgith, a Methonian who owes her an honor debt, Katy finds herself a civilian for the first time in her adult life. She needs to earn a living, and make sure her two companions don't starve while she does it. In her travels to her new destiny, she encounters people who are exceptionally gifted in their own ways, and who are also often quite mysterious in other ways. She finds herself on an artificial mining habitat in a stellar system without planets acting in the capacity of rescue pilot. And because of their experience with Fornyth Swarms, the three are extraordinarily good at high-speed, efficient rescues.
Until the Fornyth show up again, that is.
When she return to the habitat in a ship that will never fly again, she finds a being waiting for her - one who has a better overall understanding of the chaos going on in the galaxy. It makes Katy an offer: Join the newly created Scouts organization and help the galaxy once again.
It's an offer Katy can't refuse.
