Opposing them are the ships most unorthodox sailor and best reactor technician- the outspoken chief of base security who must decide whether to go in or give up- and the admirals seventeen-year-old daughter, who discovers just how tough she can really be. Suspense and danger build until the stress—in the people and the reactor—cannot be contained.
