CEO Gwen Iceni was exiled to Midway because she wasn t ruthless enough in the eyes of her superiors. She proved them wrong by commandeering some of the warships at Midway and declaring the star system's independence on behalf of the people though staying in charge as President. But while she controls the mobile fleet, she has no choice but to rely on General Drakon's ground forces to keep the peace planet-side.
If their coup is to succeed, Drakon and Iceni must put their differences aside to prevent the population of Midway from rebelling against them, to defend their star system from the enigmas and to ferret out saboteurs determined to reestablish Syndic rule
