What if everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, and left him stranded on a strange alien world? What then?

It was felt that the death of one person was an acceptable price to preserve the lives of many. But when the Matriarch ordered the assassination of Don Burgarde, an apparently harmless young man, her personal secretary, Lyra, decided to intervene. The seeds of rebellion had been sown...
