With Simon Moll vanquished at last, Thatcher's attention turns inward...inward, that is, toward the Dawn Cluster's center, where the UNC yet controls the system where the wormhole to Earth once orbited.
He will return to Earth - surely nothing can keep him from that, now.
But what resistance might the UNC muster in the meantime? And when Thatcher does return to Earth, what will he truly find there?
Find out in a series finale both gripping, and chilling.
The Xanthic await.
Out of the blue, a young Space Fleet officer's dream becomes reality: He's made captain of a starship. Just in time for the return of humanity's most terrible enemy, after 50 years of peace.
To survive against this enemy, Captain Tad Thatcher will have to do more than learn how to become an effective commander or how to wrangle his wayward crew. He will need to reinvent space combat. From scratch.

The star cluster is awash with the blood of those whose lives have been spent by two men maneuvering fleets like pieces across a chessboard.
Only one man can come out on top: Thatcher, or Moll.
But when a victor finally emerges, what will it mean? What solace can truly be taken by those left over, those whose very lives have been wrecked by a war of unrivaled carnage?
Surely someone will be left to pick up the pieces. Someone with the vision to make all of this mean something.
For Thatcher's part, he can only do what he was made to do.
Win. At all costs.
Captain Thatcher, the Hammer himself, wages a desperate fight for survival against his most bitter enemy.
In the battle for humanity's future against Simon Moll's swarming fleets, Thatcher reaches inside himself and finds a willingness to do anything it takes to win.
Anything. It. Takes.
Long-held principles disintegrate as massive fleets clash in the darkness of the void. But while sudden changes of heart can win short-term tactical victories, what will be the cost to Thatcher's soul? Or those of the crews under his command?
Long-sought vengeance may yet be had in the star cluster's southern reaches. But a reckoning looms on the horizon, the likes of which no one fighting has begun to fathom.
The UHS Providence might as well be a museum ship – under the command of Captain Keyes, she’s the last human warship not dependent on dark tech, the godlike technology humanity has used to rule the galaxy for decades.
Keyes wouldn’t have it any other way. Given a crew of screwballs Fleet Command didn’t know where else to put, he considers it his duty to protect humanity against the darkness he sees forming out on the edges of known space.
The Ixan Prophecies predict humanity’s downfall in a brutal clash of fleets between enemies that once were allies. And one by one, the Prophecies are coming true.
Worse: humanity’s oldest enemy is on the rise, deploying advanced weaponry like nothing seen before.
As the galactic order falls apart, Captain Keyes finds himself at the tip of the spear. The fate of the galaxy now comes down to his tired ship and his oddball crew.
It doesn’t pay to be right.

But an enemy lurks around every corner, and there is dissension even in Thatcher's fleet. What's more, he knows there are only two ways this war can end.
In victory, or in total defeat.
Last time, the aliens smashed the galaxy.
Humanity held on by the fingernails.
In the decades since, we’ve put worlds back together.

But Jake refuses to give up, refuses to wash out. Because humanity is facing its greatest threat yet. If someone doesn’t step up, it could all be over for the human species.

A rogue private military corporation has begun construction on the first privately owned super-ship, and it threatens to massively upset the balance of power throughout the Dawn Cluster.
Commander Thatcher and Veronica Rose have teamed up with a new mega-alliance led by Simon Moll. Together, they plan to destroy the super-ship before it ever finishes construction.
But all is not as it seems. As war expands to engulf even more of the star cluster, Thatcher begins to doubt whether uniting humanity to fight the Xanthic is even possible anymore.
A darkness coalesces at the edges of known space. New forces are emerging. New forms are taking shape.
It may be time for Thatcher to lower his expectations…from uniting humanity, to simply making sure his crew survives what’s coming.
