Sara loses everything when the enemy unleashes a surprise assault on her school, her friends and fellow cadets massacred along with her dreams.

As the mystery of an ancient alien race surfaces and factions of humanity stand against one another, Sara changes her name and re-enlists. Her new mission: Confront Ralph to discover his true motives and, if necessary, put an end to his treasonous ways.
