(From the publisher):
After an enormous Super Cargo-Liner is destroyed by an unknown band of attackers in a backwater system of the SouthWestern Corporate Grid-Sector, the U.E.N. Judiciary Board decides to send in the Guarder Squadron to head up the investigation. What starts out as a routine training assignment for the veteran Frank Buzzer and a young Guarder on his very first mission quickly turns into a devastating war between the U.E.N. Military and a well-organized and heavily armed band of pirates. When news of the war in the Sarkennon System reaches Aegis and the Guarder HQ, a small unit of Guarders, headed by Sergeant Harrison Jekel, are brought in for support. In the midst of the firestorm raging across the small planet of Shining, both sides of the battle soon learn the true viciousness of combat and the deadly implications of The Guarder Factor.
