Two life forms, two moral opposites, two different forms of strength and weakness––both under international forms of government. The humans and Emptredians are bound together in war that will twist the very concept of galactic warfare. There are no heroes or villains on either side, but only those in authority with radically contrary life-or-death agendas waged against one another. However, what unpredictable factors will occur? Could they lead to other distant conflicts? Which side will benefit from the unknown factors the most? Which will be hindered from survival, and which will advance to it? Is everything decided by fate, or has God abandoned humanity? How many prayers can be answered? Will it matter in the end?
All that is certain is that power, resources, authority, and especially innovative technology are the requirements that either side absolutely must utilize in order to maintain a long term warring campaign. With the Emptredians having already conquered multiple planets, humanity’s international authorities require every possible advantage they could obtain… because Earth is next.
