Abandoned behind enemy lines. On a captured, enemy vessel.
Ensign Ulysses Fortier must figure out how to fix the damaged freighter he has taken command of, even though his people are severely outnumbered by the existing crew.
And there is the cargo. Or rather, the alien slaves being transported.
Uly has his work set out for him, forging three different crews into a single entity.
When the pirates capture them, his challenges only escalate.
But nothing will stop Uly from rising.
