Few people realize the greatest threat faced by the Earth Empire during the period of the Martian War came not from without, but within. As efforts at peace led towards the signing of an official treaty with Mars, political operators loyal to Emperor Luther Gregory III began to make moves to displace the elected government, and to discredit Defense Command. Second Lord of the Admiralty Daragh Ryan, Rear Admiral Ken Barron, and Commodores Marshal Samuels and Karen McMaster had to block these moves... without starting a coup that could destroy the Empire before the long-awaited 'Pax Terra' could begin.
