When high-level officials in the Alliance of Worlds headquarters are murdered, fleet officer Commodore Robert Sheppard is summoned to help investigate and defend the Alliance. After stemming the initial security breach, Sheppard is charged with discovering the threat’s origins. Sheppard and his crew members are soon aboard the Phoenix heading for one of the Alliance’s major colonies, Quellus Borealis Seven, which is being attacked by the Varlon.
Too late, the Phoenix crew realize that the Varlon have allied with the Accads and have claimed QB7 as their own in order to mine the region’s valuable crystals and minerals. After taking what they came for, the Accads destroy the planet and exit into hyperspace, leaving Sheppard and his crew stranded. It is only because of the planet’s ancient crystalline facility and with the aid of the ancient patrons of the Star Knights that the Phoenix and its crew are restored to fight another day.
