The Ca'cadasans are almost through with their conquest of Sector IV, and from the there, the heart of the Empire is exposed.
The Ca'cadasans continue to roll over the New Terran Empire and the New Terran Republic. Hit and run tactics are taking a toll on the enemy, bleeding them, but not enough. Frontier worlds, developing planets, and worse, the industrial powerhouses known as Core Worlds, are falling at an alarming rate, and even the new weapons based on wormhole tech can't stop them. Risks need to be taken, everything put on the line. Sean must come up with a plan that allows him to take on and defeat the Caca battle fleet. Only then can he buy the time his Empire needs to battle the enemy on even footing, and keep the people without a plan from gaining controi of the Empire. Defeat could spell disaster, but so could inaction. He has even more new weapons to deploy, devices beyond imagination, and the shipyards are working to capacity. Allies are gathering, but so are regional enemies who join the cause of the enormous aliens. And a client species of the Cacas is looking to play both sides to their own benefit, while the Cacas plan on a strike that will take wormhole technology away from the humans, once and for all. The Day of Battle is upon the Empire, and the history of the human species depends on the outsome.
