Captain Vince Lombard, G-Marine company commander, is tasked with tracking down a stray ship. The Alliance Military Ship StarFire has gone silent, and previous attempts to locate her have resulted in the loss of more ships. After two previous wars with xespecies humanity bumped into while expanding into space, one kws what might be the cause of StarFire's missing in action status. And internal politics between Fleet command and the Galactic Marine Corps might mean that, unless something is done, humanity may get the news it's at war with yet ather new race about the time they show up to attack one of the human systems in the sector. A prequel to the book Fey, this story is a velization of the story Vince related to Blondie in the previous book, which many readers requested. I'm happy to accomodate my readers by providing this vel-length version of that story.
