The Fleet - Pledged to Protect Us All!

The fortunes of war make for strange alliances. The Khalians, the sworn enemy of humans for three generations, have joined forces with the Fleet against a common foe: The rutheless and mysterious Syndicate of Families.

The Syndicate controls thousands of alien races and worlds, and possesses technology far more advanced than anything the Fleet can send to face them.Even worse, the Syndicate rulers are human traitors, people who can blend in to infiltrate the Fleet.

No one knows where the vast Syndicate armada will strike, or where, only that the attack must come - and that the fate of countless worlds will soon be decided somewhere in the icy battlefields of space ...
