In the wake of Apollo's tragic fate, Starbuck secretly recruits Boomer, Athena and a few chosen others for a desperate and unsanctioned mission, but his reckless determination may be leaving the fleet vulnerable to Cylon attack. And the gathering Cylon threat is stronger and more insidious than ever before. Starbuck won't let anything stop him... not Adama, not the Cylons and not even common sense. Shocking drama and continuity-shaking military SF action from the acclaimed writer of Guardians of the Galaxy.[1]
