Summary (From the publisher):

THE LAST BATTLEFIELD... THE LAST HEROES

Hi-tech knights dueling in the cold vacuum of space. The victors claim the glory, while the defeated are blasted into a super-heated steel-and-alloy nova.

They are the warrior breed. Madmen, mercenaries and heroes, they take their chances in the most dangerous game in the galaxy. Matching their skills against enemies without mercy...on battlefields measured in light-years...with weapons of savage destruction--all they ask is a fast ship and a little luck.
