Heroic pilots must rely on their psychic gifts, archaic swordsmanship, and advanced combat training to survive deep space dogfights and bloody close quarters melee. They step up to defend the universe, and then come back to a harem of beautiful women, if they survive. Pretty good deal for a couple of top gun starfighter jocks.
Corwin and Tank are fighter pilots who serve the United Democracies Federation aboard the battleship Hard Rain. They are among the few pilots in the UDF who possess the physical stamina and psychic talent required to fly missions in the deadly three hundred and sixty degree battlefield of deep space. The Hard Rain is one of several battleships that are brought on as part of task force Alpha Lance. Their mission is to push back against the Roka, a militarized political insurrection, that has infested one of the UDF systems. Corwin and Tank have to give it their all as they shoot down enemy starfighters, bed beautiful women, and cross swords with fanatics in this rough and tumble intergalactic adventure.
