Just a year into their mission, the crew of "Galahad "has endured a sabotage attempt, alien encounters, and a dangerous passage through an asteroid belt. Now, as unpredictable waves of radiation threaten the very survival of the ship, Council leader Triana has disappeared. Not knowing if she is alive or dead, the crew must hold an election to replace her. Council member Gap seems the most likely candidate until an old flame shocks him by adding her name to the ballot. Does she want what's best for the ship? Or are her motivations more personal?
Facing threats both internal and external, "Galahad "and its crew must confront a cosmic storm."
