Guided by the strange being known as Niski, the Ayatolians appear determined to remove the Rhomulians from the universe. Their forces have already made great advances in this goal, destroying much of the Rhomulian forces, capturing some as they go. One such captive is Nia, who even now languishes in a cell on the Ayatolian mothership. But one of her jailers has taken a liking to Nia, and seems willing to aid her in an escape. Can one woman do anything to slow the force of the Ayatolian march?
