Présentation de l'éditeur
That company of Darinx Army soldiers was able to capture some Verm Navy vessels, and then they used those warships to escape the wrath of the Darinx Emperor. As they ‘ran for their lives’, they became stronger in size and in purpose. This wasn’t the first rebellion by the ‘augmented humans’, but it was the first one, with a chance for success. That small group of soldiers grew into a small navy, by capturing Verm warships. And they became even larger, as they sold their services as mercenaries, in the Frontier Sector of space.
The Darinx Empire was forced to treat ‘augmented humans’ better, out of fear that there would be a wholesale desertion, by the Darinx ‘augmented humans’. Now, 30 years later, the conditions for ‘augmented humans’ have improved, but there is still prejudice and grudging acceptance.
The other factor that has caused the improved conditions, for ‘augmented humans’, is the fact that they are far superior, to any other Darinx fighters, in strength and in mental capabilities. The ‘augmented human’ soldiers/sailors have changed the trajectory of the war, in the favor of the Darinx Empire.
And, the Augmented Human Rebellion has morphed into a more general rebellion, which includes other disadvantaged groups – such as Artificial Intelligences. At this point in time, Artificial Intelligences are now similar to humans – except without the bodies. But they are considered to be disposable property, with no representation or rights.
At the beginning of this nook, a young navy Ensign named Melissa Meyers has been severely damaged in battle. Her ‘augmented’ brain has been transplanted into a ‘super-sized’ clone body. She makes her way up the ‘ladder’ of success, and becomes the first ever ‘Captain’ of a Darinx Navy warship. This book is centered on her ‘trials and tribulations’ as she fights for her life, and for everyone’s freedom.
