Description

The moon Pyres is an uninhabitable hell, but a scientific shuttle just discovered signs of life on the satellite's unforgiving surface. This discovery sparks a mystery-and raises serious concerns. Admiral Timpson of the United Planets fears the discovery suggests an impending attack on Earth, but the nature of the threat is infuriatingly unclear. The most likely culprit is the Proxees, defeated by the United Planets in the Great War. If so, the Proxees have used the Border Zone Treaty as a delaying tactic while they regroup for a second strike. A second, mysterious race, however, has appeared in the Border Zone-but little is known about them or their intentions. Determined to get to the truth-and possibly avert a second war-Timpson pulls his old friend Captain Bilfer out of retirement and assigns him to the Star-Crusher, a space cruiser capable of destroying a small moon. Deep within the Border Zone, Bilfer will encounter old enemies and forge new alliances. He'll prevent a devastating war-if the Star-Crusher's proximity to the Proxee border doesn't spark one first. A stirring space opera, Star-Crusher brings to mind the works of Gene Roddenberry in its scope and vision.show more
