Mirana, operating in total secrecy, has recovered Suz, rescuing her from the burial in a collapsing star that has been ordained by the alternate universe Daleks for all humans subjected to the Dalek conversion process. Mirana and Kalendorf have discovered a horrifying secret – to avoid capture by the alternate universe Daleks, the Dalek Emperor forced its consciousness into Suz’s mind – a cohabitation she’s unaware of until Mirana tells her. Alby’s ship finally shows up for the rendezvous, but it has been commandeered by Daleks, and Alby and a refugee named Morli are hostages. The Daleks storm Mirana’s ship, taking command swiftly, but they refrain from their usual ruthlessness when Suz threatens to kill herself (which would also destroy the Emperor). At Earth’s solar system, Kalendorf’s Alliance fleet succeeds in tearing down the Daleks’ defenses, but at a high cost. Once in the solar system itself, Kalendorf and his alternate Dalek allies make startling discoveries, not the least of which is that the Daleks have terraformed Jupiter into a massive, human-habitable world by brute force. And in a Dalek laboratory, Suz’s mind is being turned inside-out, as the Daleks try to subjugate her personality permanently to bring the Emperor’s consciousness to the surface.
