|“|| The Federated Suns Stands at the Edge of a precipice....
Violent expansion of the Capellan Confederation and the Draconis Combine has cost recently crowned First Prince Julian Davion more than just countless strategic worlds. The war's toll claimed a mentor and close friend, and righteous vengeance burns bright.
To rally his people and preserve the future of the Federated Suns, Julian funnels the fires of justice into an ambitious yet risky campaign to retake vital systems: New Syrtis, the lost capital of the Capellan March. Success would dislodge an ancient enemy from their strategic foothold in the Suns space, but failure may cost Julian the nation he inherited.
However, the Capellan people have fought dearly for their prize and will do anything in their power to hold it. Will Julian's gamble save the very soul of the Federated Suns, or is the invasion of New Syrtis doomed before it ever begins?
Julian Davion decides that to save his beleagured nation, he needs to break the truce he bargained with the Capellan Confederation and retake New Syrtis, leading the New Syrtis trust of the campaign personally. To this end he hires numerous mercenary units including Tally's Talons whose contract, which is about to run out, he personally re-negotiates.
