The Galactic Seven are asked to investigate recent pirate attacks in the Mizarian system. They are assigned to escort a fleet of Alcorian cargo ships carrying a precious supply of magnorium–the major power source of the galaxy. The situation becomes dire when the pirates attack and the Galactic Seven themselves are captured. They soon learn that the pirates have an ulterior motive for attacking the Alcorians; the Alcorians are not what they seem to be. That malevolent truth leads the Galactic Seven to join forces with the pirates. Deemed as traitors by the Coalition of Planets, the Galactic Seven must prove that the Alcorians are the real enemy and that the pirates were acting for the defense of the galaxy. That is if they can survive long enough to prove it.
