The date is 1968 of the Galactic Era, almost three thousand years from now. The Republic, dominated by the human race, is in the midst of an all-out war with the Teroni Federation. Almost a year has passed since the events of Starship: Mercenary. Captain Wilson Cole now commands a fleet of almost fifty ships, and he has become the single greatest military force on the Inner Frontier. With one exception. The Republic still comes and goes as it pleases, taking what it wants, conscripting men, and extorting taxes, even though the Frontier worlds receive nothing in exchange. And, of course, the government still wants Wilson Cole and the starship Theodore Roosevelt. He has no interest in confronting such an overwhelming force, and constantly steers clear of them. Then an incident occurs that changes everything, and Cole declares war on the Republic. Outnumbered and always outgunned, his fleet is no match for the Republic's millions of military vessels, even after he forges alliances with the warlords he previously hunted down. It's a hopeless cause...but that's just what Wilson Cole and the Teddy R. are best at.

The date is 1970 of the Galactic Era, almost three thousand years from now, and the Republic, created by the human race but not yet dominated by it, finds itself in an all-out war against the Teroni Federation, an alliance of races that resent Man’s growing military and economic power. The rebel starship, the Theodore Roosevelt, under the command of Wilson Cole, is preparing to lead Cole’s ragtag armada into the Republic, even though he is outnumbered thousands to one. Cole is convinced that the government has become an arrogant and unfeeling political entity and must be overthrown. The trick is to avoid armed conflict with the vast array of ships, numbering in the millions, in the Republic’s Navy. For a time Cole’s forces strike from cover and race off to safety, but he soon sees that is no way to conquer the mightiest political and military machine in the history of the galaxy. He realizes that he must reach Deluros VIII, the headquarters world of the Republic (and of the race of Man), in order to have any effect on the government at all – but Deluros VIII is the best-protected world in the Republic. But a new threat looms on the horizon. Cole, the Valkyrie, David Copperfield, Sharon Blacksmith, Jacovic, and the rest of the crew of the Teddy R face their greatest challenge yet, and the outcome will determine the fate of the entire galaxy.

RIVISTE - Isolata su un lontano pianeta un'antica colonia terrestre deve fronteggiare una minaccia che credeva scongiurata per sempre. Milleseicento anni erano passati da quando l'astronave "Vanguard" era atterrata su quel pianeta. La colonia umana che si era insediata aveva dovuto trovare il modo di convivere con le due specie intelligenti autoctone: i remissivi Shyla e i misteriosi e bellicosi Kerr. I Kerr erano stati ricacciati e ci si era quasi dimenticati della loro esistenza. Ma ora strani incidenti si stavano verificando sui confini delle terre dominate dagli uomini: lotte di potere, schiavi ribelli o, come alcuni paventavano, il ritorno di una antica minaccia? E sarebbero stati in grado di fronteggiarla i decadenti rappresentanti della civiltà umana? Franco Forte è autore di bestseller quali "Carthago", "Il segno dell'untore" e "La Compagnia della Morte" (tutti Mondadori), sceneggiatore televisivo ("RIS - Delitti imperfetti", "Distretto di Polizia") e direttore editoriale delle collane da edicola Mondadori (Urania, Gialli Mondadori e Segretissimo).

Over twelve generations the descendents of a space crash on a world completely covered in water had managed to adapt to their marine culture. Living in villages built on giant clumps of sea plants, they survived on the flora and fauna of the sea. But they have always been at the mercy of the kragen - gigantic squid-like monsters that prey on their fish flocks, and on them. The biggest of these is King Kragen, with whom the colonists can communicate, who has to be appeased. But one man has had enough of a life of slavery and sacrifice. But how can he convince his fellow men that King Kragen must be killed? And how can that be achieved in a world without weapons?
