With a patchwork fleet under his command, Supreme Commander Middleton now faces the daunting task of dealing with an Imperial Fleet's seemingly unstoppable advance into the Gorgon Sectors.But the first order of business for any military commander in Middleton's position is to gather intelligence. So before they rush off to engage the enemy in a battle for the fate of the Gorgon Sectors, Middleton and his people must learn more about the mysterious nature of the Gorgon Conflict--and as each piece of the puzzle falls into place, a cloud of darkness appears at the edge of the galaxy which threatens to swallow the Gorgon Sectors whole.A mysterious figure known only as 'The Crafter' seems to only add to the increasingly murky picture in which MIddleton and his people find themselves, but it may be this same engimatic character who proves instrumental in the Alliance Gorgonus' ultimate victory in the escalating war with the Empire of Man.But for the first time in Middleton's career he has the resources, the crew, and perhaps the most crucial element of all--surprise--on his side necessary to bring a fair fight to the Imperial Fleet. And that's exactly what he intends to do.Meanwhile, on the far Rim, a secretive Imperial mission is under way to pierce the veil of darkness beyond the Gorgon Sectors--a veil behind which a threat of unimaginable danger might lurk. While fleets of warships vie for control of the Gorgon Sectors, the Imperial operatives will try to discover who their real enemy is--and their discovery may shake the galaxy itself.Will Middleton be able to keep the ramshackle Alliance Gorgonus from flying apart at the seams before they close to grips with the enemy? Will Kongming's personal transformation continue to strip away his remaining humanity? And will the Empire manage to regain the initiative, or will Middleton deal them a crippling blow before they even know he is hunting them?Battle lines will be drawn, players revealed, and fur will fly in this entry to the Spineward Sectors: Middleton's Pride series!
