The private war between Jregli and Shdr'edno isn't as secret as they'd like. Others have noticed, and they're choosing sides. The biggest threat, however, doesn't involve them at all, but it could change everything.
Commander Neim has his hands full running the Station; the last thing he needs is a group of sentients making waves. The mysterious K'Tomals didn't bring trouble, but trouble happens around them. They didn't come to negotiate, and no one can stop them from doing what they came to do.
Business is not as usual aboard Fredan Sector Station 5, and the internal problems are the least of anyone's worries. The prized Wormhole now threatens half the galaxy, and Shdr'edno's patience grows thinner by the hour. Who will survive this Fall Through Space?
