Book DescriptionTyrone 'Tim' Middleton had been on his way out. With twenty years of military service under his belt, it was time to settle down on a colony somewhere and start the next phase of his life.
But without warning, the Empire of Man withdrew its support of the Confederated Spineward Sectors, taking the vast majority of high-value military assets - including capable officers - with it.
In an unlikely turn of events, the would-be retiring Lieutenant Commander was given a field commission of Captain, and tasked with a simple 'wave the flag' operation by his improbable commanding officer, Admiral Jason Montagne. So Captain Middleton set out to patrol the adjacent sectors, and carry out his commanding officer's orders to the best of his ability.
Three weeks into the routine patrol, Middleton's ship, the Pride of Prometheus, happens upon a pirate den and launches a surprise attack. As is so often the case, one thing leads to another and Middleton finds himself and his ancient warship caught in quandary after quandary as the shadows of a Sector-wide conspiracy can be seen everywhere they turn.
The further down the rabbit hole he goes, the less he likes what he finds and his simple patrol mission soon turns into something much, much larger with dire implications for the Spineward Sectors.
With a crew comprised almost exclusively of rookies and society's unwanted - including a pair of teenagers from a world very different from his own - Captain Middleton will discover one simple, incontrovertible truth:
In life, there is no middle ground.
