An area of the Milky Way arm that belongs neither to the Protectorate nor to the Plachtharr Alliance is used by pirates, criminals, and various groups of different species acting outside any law of the interstellar coalitions. This becomes more than just a nuisance to a mining consortium that lost physical assets that overall, have remarkable economical value and thousands of workers.

Frank Gazer and his unique group of fellow adventurers are the perfect envoys for an unofficial investigation. The crew of the starship Stargazer find themselves using special but limited resources in an area of space where dangers are unknown. The discovery they make is a huge surprise that can alter the balance in the entire galactic arm.
