The 58th is assigned to play just a small part of a massive Earth effort to take a Chig airstrip on Demios. Though seemingly insignificant, control of that installation guarantees control of the surrounding sector. Though the invasion is expected to come at the price of a great loss of life, the airstrip is taken with great ease and very little resistance. Only when the 58th sets up shop at the airstrip do they realize that their target is a trap designed to lure as many Earth carriers to this sector as possible for a Chig ambush – and help may never come.
