7200 Anno Domini
Earth is the center of a vast galactic empire - a militaristic state governed by stern repression. The Specials, an extended family that has wielded power for nearly two thousand years, control the galaxy with ironfisted zeal. After generations of genetic manipulation they are virtually immortal - as is their rule...
On an isolated planet on the very fringe of the galaxy lives a pilot named Hawk Hunter. He designs his own ships, using strange technology - but he cannot explain his abilities or his knowledge. His past is a mystery, even to himself...
But now Hawk's talents have been discovered. And in the Earth Race - a state-sponsored gladiatorial contest that pits pilot against pilot, and earns both winner and sponsor unimaginable wealth - he will not only test the limits of his endurance, but begin to learn the truth of his identity...
