The "Terran Question" echoes through the million-year-old capital Rome, of which Roma Terra was a failed copy meant to indoctrinate Terrans into a placid mold. For two thousand years the Galactics wait and debate. Now it is too late. Alexander is here, and only the proud Chem have the strength of will to try and stop him. Desperately the Chem seek out Alexander, a man with generations of glory, murder, and strife on his hands. Can the Chem stop him, or will Alexander crush the stagnant Galactic civilizations beneath the weight of his legend? Only Alexander of Terra can say. Or can he? Can it be that the most feared being in the galaxy cannot control his own destiny?
