Those in power do as they please.
When the human race discovered a trans-dimensional gate at the edge of the solar system, they gained access to the rest of the galaxy. Plunged into an interstellar society, humanity competed with alien empires and otherworldly forces. As humans spread throughout the stars, they found a few of their children born outside the Terran system were gifted with strange energies and abilities. When a civil war on a faraway world led to a hunt of all those who were gifted, one man, Jovan Anlon, and his alien wife Emery Valéry, commandeered a colossal ship, forcing an end to the conflict.
Now six years later, the peace they forged is at risk: there is an arms race that could threaten the balance of power throughout the galaxy. Jovan and Emery seek to remain on top through a combination of military might, espionage, and subterfuge. Each determined to do things their way, they risk losing all that they have accomplished.
