Defeated at the Battle for Terra Two, the cyborg AIs regroup to destroy mankind. Commodore Detrelna and the battle cruiser Implacable are sent into Quadrant Blue 9 for the only weapon that can stop them. Implacable's crew aren't optimistic--it's been 3,000 years since a ship came home from Blue 9. Then they meet what's been waiting for them. (2011 revision of 1987 Tor Books edition. 64,800 words.)

The Battle for Terra Two could have marked mankind's end. It still could. The Kronarins and their Terran allies almost went down under the onslaught of the biofabs' new allies: AIs--Artificial Intelligences--fearsome cyborgs from humanity's dawn come at last to kill us all. Barely defeating AIs and biofabs, the Kronarin battle cruiser Implacable returned to Terra and its home universe, warning of an AI invasion so vast not even the dead Kronarin Empire at its height could have stopped it.

Mankind's only hope lies in a mythic weapon somewhere out in Blue 9--Quadrant Blue 9--an abandoned cube of space from which no ship's returned since the Empire's long ago Fall. Ordered into Blue 9 after the weapon, Implacable's crew must first master a horror out of their nightmares, an ancient evil that feeds off the undead it makes of the living.

His command stalked by corsairs and himself by assassins, Implacable's Commodore Jaquel Detrelna finds the jump into Blue 9 almost a relief--until Battle Stations sounds and he sees what's been patiently waiting for them, a spider long tending her toils.
