(From the publisher):
Captain Dylan Hunt's ship, the Andromeda Ascendant
, is a mighty vessel of the Systems Commonwealth High Guard. In a universe filled with fractious worlds and heavy weaponry, this great ship is often greeted with an armed response rather than with open arms. When Andromeda
ventures near one of the worlds on the galactic rim to make friendly contact, it is instead attacked and damaged so severely that the crew must seek a drift where they can repair the ship before attempting any sustained flight.
There aren't any supply depot drifts this far out, but there is Waystation, a disused depot on a frozen world long since abandoned by the Commonwealth. There might be supplies down there that they could use to fix the ship.
Something on Waystation has been waiting for centuries to greet visitors. Something malevolent and dangerous. In the long history of the old Systems Commonwealth there are secrets that have never been revealed. Captain Hunt has long believed in the essential justice of the government that he's crusaded to restore. But whatever has been triggered on Waystation is hostile to Andromeda and its crew in a way that suggests a dark design with a very twisted justice in mind. What terrible force has the Andromeda crew unleashed?
