The crew of the Galactica, and the fleet as a whole, comes to terms with Apollo's shocking fate. But there is no time for reflection. Apollo's mission woke up the Cylon threat, and the old enemy has become aware of the fleet again. The War has turned hot again, the fleet is in grave danger, and without Apollo's pilot skills and leadership, the human race may not survive. Epic, continuity-shaking storytelling from cosmic fan-favorite writer Dan Abnett and out-of-this-world artist Dietrich Smith.[1]
