It has been nearly thirty years since the defeat of the man named Zealot, a charismatic man of great influence whose words of hatred caused an American Holocaust that took the lives of nearly one hundred thousand people.
Now private companies seek to expand the space program as a way of deflecting the specter of renewed violence. And to help America forget.
But some Americans can't forget. The crew members and supporters of the Excellence, a ship whose corporate charter is the protection of colonists and travelers in space, have all been touched by the machinations of the madman who incited a nation to mass murder such as had never been seen within its borders. A man whom they will have to defeat once again in order to undertake their mission above the graves of those his followers murdered.
