(From the publisher):
Captain Nicholas Seafort survived alien wars, planetary rebellions, and ecological chaos on Earth, but now something much more ordinary might finally cost him his life—vengeance...
Derek Carr was Stadholder of the colonial planet Hope Nation when Captain Nicholas Seafort ordered him to take command of the UN starship Galactic—a mission that ultimately cost Derek his life. It was a tragedy that forever changed the political landscape of Hope Nation and left young Randy Carr fatherless—and desperate for revenge.
Now a young man bucking against authority, Randy rebels against Hope Nation's oppressive Church-State—and draws the wrath of a powerful and malicious clergy. As he seeks refuge from those who would make an example of him, he sustains himself with dreams of repaying Captain Seafort for the death of his famous father. When the opportunity presents itself, he leaves the UN's most decorated hero and legendary leader fighting for his life—an action that sparks the most explosive trial in starship history.
For Randy Carr, it will be more than a fight for justice. Because what began in the name of duty could suddenly end—with a death sentence.
