As Earth and the other worlds of the Confederation bind their wounds after the disastrous first battle with the alien Kreelan Empire, Ichiro Sato finds himself in command of the heavy cruiser Yura. His ship is one of many in the task force sailing for the renegade planet of Saint Petersburg, which Confederation intelligence sources believe has not only secretly built a fleet of warships to attack the Confederation, but has armed its ships with nuclear weapons, which have been outlawed in the human sphere for centuries.
Drawn into a deadly trap, the Confederation fleet and its Marines are fighting for their lives when Kreelan warships, led by the enigmatic warrior priestess Tesh-Dar, materialize out of hyperspace. As Tesh-Dar and her warriors wreak havoc on the humans, Ichiro, former Legionnaire Roland Mills, and a Confederation spy known as Scarlet, are faced with desperate choices from which they learn the true meaning of sacrifice.
