But, when the ship lands, his squad finds the base devastated beyond repairs. A disturbing discovery takes the squad to a different star system. There, Rade and his team are told to protect a priceless transportation tech with their lives while she takes care of some highly important matters. However, when an old foe appears on the horizon, it changes everything, forcing Rade to make an impossible choice.
He soon learns that the old saying - "Having kids changes a man" - is true, and now he's in quite a pickle. What is a father supposed to do? Stick with the plan and risk the lives of his own children, or betray his influential client and put mankind's fate in jeopardy? The man's been through a lot and is as hard-boiled as they come, but how on Earth is he supposed to make this call? No matter what he chooses to do, it will still be wrong on so many levels.
