Does the uniform mean that much, or is it something inside you that makes you part of the corps?
On her maiden voyage, an expeditionary mission to explore an icy moon in the Glirase system, Dr. Leba Brader learns firsthand how different military life can be when compared to the comforts of home. After the traumatic loss of her friend and mentor, Brader disobeys a direct order, which results in a significant and unexpected change in her status.

Pulled in multiple directions, Garnet questions decisions made by his colleagues and commanders. His judgment is clouded by factors he cannot control.
When an unknown entity launches a systematic assault on a previously peaceful system, the Tal-Kari have no choice but to respond in force. Brader and Garnet are thrust into the midst of the conflict. Do they trust enough to balance their growing feelings for each other and their commitment to duty, or will they need to choose what is more important?
