The once peaceful relationship with the Insect civilizations has mysteriously begun to change and over a period of a hundred years the Federation now finds itself involved in a galactic-wide war.

A small task force stationed on a remote, now dying planet ironically named Futura, may hold the key to the mystery.

Along with the re-appearance of an ancient race bent on universal domination, the discovery of a revealing photoplate, and an attempted federation cover-up, the trail to the truth is littered with deceit and political power mongering.

Gracie Wallace, the last survivor of a race exterminated for their ability to understand the Insect languages, believes she knows why the Insects have changed, setting this small band of soldiers including cartographer/tactician Cliff Mills and his best friend, demolitions expert Sullivan Leeds on a mission to find out who’s really behind this war, and hopefully, bring them to justice.
