600 Years in the Future the Battle for Earth is About to Begin....
The egomaniacal alien Kilrathi have struck again, savaging a peaceful planet at the edge of space. And worse, they have captured a NAVCOM device that will lead them straight to Earth!
Chris Blair and his pal Maniac are "nuggets," cadets fresh from the Academy. Their first ship, the Tiger Claw, has an awesome mission: Recover the NAVCOM, and stop the Kilrathi at all costs.
But Blair's fighting wing--Earth's last hope--is seething with internal strife. For somewhere among the thin red line of heroes a traitor lurks!
Includes an 8 page full color photo insert.
