(From the publisher):
The planets of the Empire had decided on the best possible form of government for themselves: a monarchy, for quick decisions; a monarch chosen from the people, for democracy's sake; a female monarch, tall, blonde and beautiful, for dramatic appeal. Her Imperial Highness, the Empress Irene.
So when Captain Mortimer Jones, a little man lusting for power who had set himself up as absolute dictator on an Empire planet, escaped from royal retribution in the Empress's own royal yacht, the Empress decided to follow him across space herself - for the sake of public appeal.
Only, when her ship ran into a band of hostile space pirates and got blown out to the galaxy's rim, a ruined hulk in space, then the publicity stunt had turned into something a little bigger, like the very probable takeover of the Empire by the power-crazed Mortimer Jones!
