A rough truce divides the known galaxy between the System, the despotic slave empire that rules the inner systems, and the Confederation of Free Worlds. A ConFree unit is dispatched to defend a remote world from a mysterious Systie incursion. Our hero, call-sign "Thinker," will soon discover that giant exosegs, slavers and Systies are just the beginning. Once before the Legion faced the godlike, utterly alien and evil, Omnis, and drove them back at the cost of billions of lives. The future of humanity, all humanity - even the corrupt and decaying System empire, will soon be in the hands of Soldiers of the Legion.

"Get up! Attack! Biogas ignition! No effect! Recommend stunstar to take enemy prisoners! Ignition! Fire xmax! Major antimat launching sequences continuing! I detect a major launching completed! Numerous deceptor launches! Airburst antis! Major enemy troop concentrations directly ahead! Enemy vac, laser, nuke, tacs now on you! Fire all weapons! Psycho, fire tacstars, fire! Ignition! Multiple attacks, fire and fall!"
I fired and fell, just as we had practiced a thousand times in Hell. Again a white-hot sun licked at my armor.
"Get up! Attack! Psycho, give me some stunstars! I want prisoners!" Snow Leopard walked into the firestorm just ahead. Every muscle in my body screamed in agony. Engulfed in flames, I found something in my way. A massive chunk of metal, hanging from the overhead by a thin strip. I kicked it away. I thought I saw Valkyrie walking past me, calmly firing her E from the hip, wreathed in flames. I immediately thought of Priestess, somewhere behind me. I raised my E and fired, suddenly enraged. I could not afford such thoughts.
Sleepwalking, I stepped over the smoking armor of a Systie soldier, his A-suit torn open by unimaginable forces. Several of them sprawled, pitted and dead, frozen in grotesque positions, flames licking all around them. Someone screamed. I thought for a moment it was me. A sharp, eerie whistling, all around me. Suddenly pure white smoke enveloped me, and the air sparkled like diamonds. Biogas! I held my breath, instinctively.
I almost stumbled over another A-suit. This one moved, and I was about to shoot when I realized it was Legion armor. Ironman had fallen to his knees, his left arm missing below the elbow, armor burnt and smoking, raising his other arm to me. His eyes appeared strangely calm and vulnerable. Blood spurted from the wound.
"Medic! Priestess, Thinker, on me! Ironman’s hit!" I tore open my medkit, ripped out a pressure dressing and forced it up past the jagged edges of Ironman's armor and into the wound. His blood squirted all over my armor.
