D minus 267 days: The Argo approaches the planet Ballan, a volcanically active body which is the home to a large Gamilon encampment. Ballan is also the halfway point on the journey from Earth to Iscandar. As the Star Force moves into Gamilon space, the Gamilon generals, Lysis and Volgar, are fighting each other over strategic matters. But the Gamilon leaders are not the only commanders in disarray – Captain Avatar collapses on the bridge and Dr. Sane decides that he must undergo a high-risk surgery. General Volgar jumps the gun and launches a premature attack, and Wildstar is forced into his first uneasy command without his mentor nearby.
