Lance Baker has a job to do, and he won't let anything stand in his way. As head engineer for the Space-Time Gateway, he's in charge of the device that has revolutionized interstellar travel for Earth and made settlement of the galaxy possible. But when Earth starts running out of worlds and resources, Baker gets pressure from the Galactic Import Agency to push the boundaries of colonization.
As he delves further into the Gateway's secret technology, he and his friends unwittingly uncover hints of a deeper conspiracy that could threaten Earth's hold over the rest of the galaxy. Now they have a decision to make: if their theories are right and they expose Earth, they could upset the delicate balance of power in the galaxy and invite a war. But if they're wrong, they could destroy all of space–time in the process. Will they save the universe or doom it?
After surviving the near-destruction of Kinara, exiled scientist Lance Baker returns to Earth in an attempt to right old wrongs. But Lance quickly finds himself in over his head—captured by Earth’s cruel leader who is determined to punish the Outworlds.
Meanwhile, the Resistance is gaining strength. The Outworlds rally around Voltania as their only hope for victory, but some start to suspect that Voltania’s leader has ulterior motives. In this nonstop sequel to Gateway to Oblivion, the Outworlds and Earth head towards war as each struggles to survive.
