Captain Warren Miller races to join his colleagues in the Agency headquarters, hoping to convince his superiors to launch their latest space craft, the battlecruiser Leviathan, which may be able to defy this intruder. In the absence of communication, he hopes a little intimidation might bring about a conversation.
But then smaller objects descend upon the Earth, grabbing up people from all over the globe. Captain Miller never makes it back to base, forcing the Agency to scramble for a response. With the weight of an expectant world beating down on them and the alien threat looming above, they have no choice but to engage the enemy or simply witness history in the making.
The Ulysses continues their journey, fighting to restore all systems so they might return home. A duel between juggernauts intensifies the danger and when they are discovered, it seems like only a matter of time before they are captured or destroyed.
Criminals on the hub intensify their game, putting investigators at risk along with conspirators on the wrong side of their activities. A young security officer finds himself in the difficult situation of having to trust someone he barely knows, a potential criminal in her own right with a shady past.
All these things culminate in a dark portent discovered on Gaia, one that may spell doom for all sapient life in the universe.
Meanwhile, research teams and scouts scour the planet in an effort to ensure the safety of civilian workers. One such group uncovers a shocking discovery, one which might answer many questions about their new home. If they live to tell the tale.
But intrigues abound. Crime on the hub may be the start of a festering rot, something that could plague humanity’s fresh start before it even begins. Agents on either side push and pull, involving the highest echelons of their people in an effort to come out ahead. Which of these sides are together? Which will come out ahead? The answer will determine the course of life in that region of space.
And while all this goes on, the sinister Ghrell must be dealt with. Humanity commits two dreadnoughts to a fleet going after their enemies, a blow that should settle a score. With some major upgrades and plenty of allies, it seems like a sure thing. Yet if they have learned anything, it is that their opponents are crafty. And whatever they find may not be so simple to put down.
Offering the means to defend themselves in the form of shared technology and a liaison, humanity prepares to fight back. They refit the Behemoth, the only surviving ship from the initial attack and embark on a quest to join their saviors. A war is brewing against a zealous enemy, one with a single minded notion to destroy every colony, every world, all civilizations.
As humanity works to prove themselves to their highly advanced allies, they travel to the far reaches of the galaxy. Every test pushes them toward their ultimate confrontation, a final match with those who attacked them in the very beginning. But will their preparation be enough to defeat a culture literally designed for war?

Meanwhile, the battle to secure the planet’s surface continues. The military prepares to take out a massive lair of their enemies. They’re drawing closer to the source, though even as they do, they find an even more dangerous enemy, one capable of better tactics and coordination. The violence escalates to the point where the military may have bitten off more than they can chew.
The crew of the Ulysses have crash landed far from home, cut off from their alliance and with little hope. Ghrell forces surround them and they’ve only got a short time before they’re discovered and killed. Resources are scarce, and an alien force rushes toward them, putting their survival on a short timer.
The colony is not the only problem. Captain David Warwick’s ship has been assigned to negotiate with the newly discovered Bhalas race. They hope to establish an alliance, friendship in that distant part of the galaxy. But when another culture’s outpost falls under attack, the Daedalus makes a detour to help.
Their success or failure may establish a friendship with a powerful culture in the region. Or they could wind up with another enemy even more powerful than the raiding Ghrell.
The civilization of man has fallen. A mindless alien race has swept across the colonies, consuming structures and people along the way. As humanity stands on the brink of destruction, we have one hope to preserve what’s left of our culture and very lives. The Passage.
One of the greatest scientific achievements of humanity, a gateway that will hyper-accelerate our faster than light drives so we can cover an unimaginable distance. A new home waits beyond, one far from our aggressors. But can we escape the desolation of our old empire before it’s too late?
The crew of the TCN Triton look to uncover the secrets of the Kahl artifact they’ve brought on board. With a hint of what comes next, they turn to the expertise of a Vorka field scientist, a scholar of history. He resides on a quiet settlement in Rhulin space, a place where he might study in peace.
But the Kahl have other plans, laying siege to the world. With the the scientist on the run and multiple vessels battling near orbit, this quiet researcher has become the center of attention. With more on the line than a few lives, the humans and their allies must conduct a daring mission to not only recruit their VIP but to save the entire settlement in the process.
Meanwhile, behind enemy lines in the Kahl empire, a lone intelligence agent continues her hunt for the elusive Prophet. Pushing her way into the graces of a suspected criminal, she looks to move her way up the ranks so she might silence this rebel faction once and for all.
But they aren’t the only ones in a tight spot. Lisa Erris and Rita Peck find themselves at the mercy of the very man they’ve been investigating while their crew is left behind to fend for themselves. Hiding away in a cave, they must risk everything in order to escape the planet or be marooned there for the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, the pilgrimage continues as the archaeology team makes their way to a new world. This desolate place seems abandoned by the former occupants, leaving a vast facility as little more than a ghost town. Not all is as it seems and when they land, they discover an ancient mystery that puts all their lives at risk.
The Kahl Resistance picks up speed, gathering forces for a final push to save their people. Various agents find themselves in a desperate race to escape the wrath of their military forces. Powerful individuals stand in their way, and the situation couldn’t be more dire. In the end, they may well be the last bastion of hope for not only themselves but their civilization as a whole.
