The Liberator crew is growing tired and must stop off for some form of natural relaxation soon. As they try to find somewhere to meet those specifications, the Liberator passes through a force barrier around the planet Horizon, which is very soon to be annexed by the Federation. On Horizon, a simple native is being manipulated as a puppet governor by a Federation Kommissar into enslaving his people – and Blake and the crew unwittingly walk right into every trap on Horizon and become part of the slave labor force while Avon is tempted to leave on his own in the Liberator.
