Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn't be better... until Andrew begins to pick up on the fact that 1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces, 2) the ship's captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations, and 3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed. Then Andrew stumbles on information that completely transforms his and his colleagues' understanding of what the starship Intrepid really is, and offers them a crazy, high-risk chance to save their own lives.
