The independent planet of Rhysalan provides Sanctuary to 1,462 governments-in-exile. It is the responsibility of the Xenocriminology and Alien Relations department of the Military Crimes Investigation Division to keep a firm leash on the hundreds of thousands of xenos residing on-planet. Assassinations, revolutions, civil wars, and attempted planetary genocides are all in a days work for warrant officer Graven Tower, MCID-XAR.
When an alien ambassador is found dead in orbit while returning to his home planet in the company of mercenaries from Wardogs Incorporated, suspicions are naturally aroused. But uncovering the truth isnt deemed to be in the interest of the planetary administration, which would just as soon pretend the ambassadors death was an accident. And when Chief Warrant Officer Graven Tower of the Military Crimes Investigative Division - Xenocriminology and Alien Relations arrives at the scene of the crime, another question is soon raised: are MCIDs dynamic investigation methods compatible with thinly armored spaceship hulls?
