The Commonwealth is the ruling power in the galaxy. Until now, they hadn’t concerned themselves with the worlds incapable of space travel. An enemy is slowly creeping into the galaxy, infiltrating the low-tech worlds. Supreme Executor Hale knows if this continues, in time, it will destroy the Commonwealth. Twelve star ships are sent out with minimal crews to approach the undeveloped worlds, making alliances before the enemy can gain a foothold on them.
Captain Alexander leads his eleven crew members to these savage worlds, searching for the enemy’s presence and developing allies. In exchange for small advances in technology, the crew buys loyalty from the naive worlds giving the Commonwealth advanced scouts in the coming war. It’s a simple enough assignment until the enemy begins pursuing the crew.
The Crew of the Evangeline continue their Commonwealth mission to make allies of the non-space-faring planets in the galaxy. Drea III is a technologically advanced world shrouded by a dark history with the Commonwealth. Drean officials politely agree to hear the crew’s proposal of an alliance with the Commonwealth. A series of startling discoveries land the crew in jail, charged with several capital crimes. Captain Alexander finds himself caught between his Commonwealth mandates and protecting an entire planet from disaster.
David does the only thing he can. He throws himself on the mercy of the courts, defending his crew to his last breath. More unexpected discoveries cause the Captain and crew to start questioning everything they’ve been taught.
Who enjoys the story of a good boy gone bad?
Captain David Alexander is just such a man. He followed the rules, dotted every “i” and crossed every “t.” Service to the Commonwealth Interstellar Force was his life… until now.
Treason, the only crime punishable by death. The entire crew wavered in their loyalty. Only one man remained true, Security Chief Jake Holden. Could he save them from themselves? Could he stop Captain Alexander from taking the entire crew down? Could he protect the primitive world of Tudoren? If he couldn’t, Admiral Robert Deacons, David’s uncle would have to. Could he arrest or execute his own nephew?
Betrayed… Imprisoned unjustly… His body racked with pain…
Evil voices whispering… Taunting him…
Pateras prevented his captor from executing him outright. His crew now believed he was either dead, or the one who betrayed them. The desire to die grew stronger with each passing moment. The one who betrayed him returned as an angel of light offering him a way out… a way to die. Can he fulfill the mission Pateras gave him? Can he survive this darkest night of the soul?

Hunted for treason and haunted by his past, Captain Alexander attempts to unite the Explorer Fleet to protect them from the deadly super-soldiers ordered to destroy them.

The two are forced into an empty mine tunnel. The odds are not good with four against one and the young lieutenant in heavy labor. Can Captain Alexander talk his way out?
