The Fight For Your Future Began In Their Past.
The last fleet of your Empire have been turned into balls of expanding debris in space. In the final minutes of the battle, you rescued thirteen captains and their crews. Those you had to leave behind are probably being eaten alive.
You look around your empty bridge. All of your crew, and those rescued, are in stasis. In a mad, possibly treasonous, attempt to enlist the aid of the species from a system locked away from the rest of the universe, you are about to attempt the most dangerous Transit ever undertaken.
Pulling your straps tight, one last thought shoots through your mind. Your Empire has fallen to the second most dangerous species ever encountered. Now you are going to ask the aid of the first. You know that is true, because your Empire created them. They are an experiment that went wrong.
And now they are your only hope!

New Kind Of Warrior. A New Kind Of War. An Enemy Without Remorse.
Shaffer's Sci Fi Epic continues to gather momentum as the first 13 Omegas join the battle.
The aliens have all the technology, millions of years of society, and a much higher level of intelligence. The Terrans have what we have always had, wits and a wiliness to do what is necessary for the survival of the race.
The aliens are going to be fighting to maintain control and preserve their order. The Omegas are going to be fighting to carve out a place in a new galactic empire. One where they want to be seen as equals and not servants to a higher cause.
A superbly balanced Space Opera packed full of original ideas and nuance. Shaffer is again at his best as he delivers another fine nugget of space warfare science fiction.
