Hell is unleashedthe Hegemony controls Megara, the Confederation’s capital. But in the stronghold where Tyler Barron and his comrades have gathered their allies and the last of their strength, a plan is being devised. Barron and his people have fought bravely, stubbornly, relentlessly, but the Hegemony has been too strong.
Millions are dead, vast fleets of ships have been destroyed. Take back what the enemy has captured. And he will not remain meekly on the defensive, waiting for the enemy to bring forward reinforcements to launch the final assault. That leaves only one option. Attack. Bring the war to the invader, and send them reeling back into the Badlands from whence they came.
The fight will be difficult, the odds steep. War has raged for five years. Now, barron is relying on the one source of strength that remains to him. Defiance. He will not surrender, he will not yield. But barron is ready to take the final gamble, the thousands of spacers he leads are behind him, and as one, shouting a single rallying cry.

Barron and his people will do all they can to prevent the Confederation from slipping into oblivion, and to prepare it to face the new enemy that is coming.

Sector nine’s intrigues are targeted at nothing less than instigating a coup, a change in government that will bring the fresh fleets of the Alliance into the war, and bringing to power a regime that favors war against the Confederation, striking at the Confederation’s unguarded flank.
