"If anyone can get it done, she can. But she's going to need to find her own incentive. No one pushes that woman."
A human civilization, decimated by an unknown synthetic enemy, has lost trillions of people in a decade-long war that has left the whole galaxy an eerie, abandoned, and haunted shell of what it used to be. In horrible disrepair, and with human numbers having been cut down to a few million across all colonized systems due to the genocide, progress since the Synthetic War has been slow. The network of communication is still offline for security purposes, and isolated all across the stars, the people are leaderless and vulnerable.
In a futuristic time where technology is now heavily restricted, the Human Race is still weak thirty years later, when whispers along the edges of Human Territory warn that the old enemy that nearly murdered humans to extinction may be returning.
Now, in a risky and desperate move, the Hero of the last Synthetic War has been recovered, brought back out of her thirty-year freeze and coma, and has been charged with investigating these rumors. But she isn't the Hero any of the younger generation had idolized growing up.
Bishop is reckless, impudent, and even considered brutal. With sharp wit and a blunt tongue, she speaks without diplomacy and fires without asking questions. She has the personality of a starved bear, and is a dangerous and difficult tool to use; as subtle as a tank, but just as efficient. Now she's been brought back to clean up a new mess, and she isn't particularly happy about it.
But she's the only one proven effective against this foe, and if humans have any chance of defense before all the remains of the population joins the fallen, the re-instated Captain must dig deep and find a way to finish what she started so many years ago. She has her old ship, a reluctant and disillusioned crew, and one hell of a bite. Only time will tell if her attitude will be an impediment, or her saving grace.
