Christopher "Maverick" Blair is a fighter pilot who has recently joined an intersellar war to fight againt the evil Kilrathi who are trying to destroy the universe.

This battle started due to the descrimination held against the descendants of the first ones to travel space who have always been regarded as people of lesser worth by the Kilrathi.

Half a millennium after the first ships launched in search of a better life, the Pilgrims are still being discriminated against.

When the Kilrathi finally declare war against the Pilgrims, it is left to Maverick to help avoid the complete annihilation of the now ancient race.

Since the Kilrathi managed to conquer a Navcom unit, they know the jump coordinates to Earth. And the terran fleet is two hours further away from home than the Kilrathi fleet.

Now mankinds only hope lies in their trust in Maverick. Due to Mavericks genetics (different to Earthling's due to him being a Pilgrim Halfling) who can navigate his spacecraft by using his feelings and therefore not needing a Navcom unit.

But will he succeed, or will Mankind be destroyed forever?
