We always suspected that we were not alone in the universe.
The Charter is a collection of alien races that have ruled the galaxy for over a thousand years. For better or for worse, that Charter established contact with Earth and has woven us into their alliance.
Nick Everroot is a new graduate from Charter’s Academy. Nick expected that he would be assigned to one of the proud fighting ships of the fleet. But you don’t always get what you want, and Nick learns that is not always a bad thing.
Nick finds that not everything in the galaxy is as obvious or as orderly as the Charter would have us believe. There are problems to be solved, battles to be fought, and lost things to be found. And if that were not enough, some of the mysteries remain hidden, even in plain sight.
