In the 25th century, gifted galactic alliance fleet officer Ed Mercer;, who went rogue after a divorce over his wife's adultery with an alien, finally gets a shot at a command due to lack of qualified officers. The new star-ship captain eagerly recruits maverick buddy lieutenant Gordon Malloy and is reasonably happy with his incomplete, multi-species staff, setting out to pick up a yet to assign first officer on their first mission. As Malloy predicts, he freaks when he learns his XO is his ex Kelly Grayson, but can't wriggle out. The mission is not actually delivering supplies to a spatial labs-spangled space station, that was leading Dr. Aronov's cover for seeking assistance with his local time manipulation device, which has great economic but also military potential. As feared, the enemy Krill empire got wind of it and his a ship waiting for them, even a traitor in the lab. The new crew works together so well, Mercer reconsiders splitting it up.
