an excellent beginning for years of Legion stories set in a space age future that still struggles with powerful enemies, many of which are found within their own governments and alliances.

The interplanetary Confederacy is beset by enemies on all sides some of whom are, were or will become allies in this constanly shifting struggle for power that seems to haunt every sentinent species.

Dietz weaves his stories through book after book and year after year graphically illustrating the slaughter and gore that only advanced technology can manifest.
