Blackwell North Amer
Heir to a powerful dynasty, Jefferson Kopal has never lived up to his family's expectations. Tradition dictates that, like his long-lost father, Jeff should serve with distinction in the deep-space navy, but when Jeff blows his entrance exams, he assumes his future is over.
But if he's such a screwup, why is he tapped by the navy for an urgent mission to the farthest depths of outer space? Why send the "black sheep" to deal with the threat of rebellious cyborgs? Something's not quite right, and Jeff has to figure out what's really going on - if he lasts that long.
