It's year 2258. Raider infestation in Altair system has become intolerable. Each one of their raids is putting all involved civilian lives at risk and bussiness freighters end up looted leaving only dead crews. President Santiago orders a task force to take out the raider threat in the Altair system for once at for all.
The task force consisting of EAS Hermes (EA Omega Destroyer), EAS Morpheus (EA Midwinter Cruiser), EAS Scyla (EA Hyperion Cruiser) and EAS Gibraltar (EA Olymus Corvette) have been assigned to each of their area of space with frequent Raider activity.
It seems that Raiders have taken extraordinery means to hinder the EA task force to block their raider activities in Altair. First, an unprovoked attack on EAS Scyla, leading to her own destruction and killing over 300 hands on the board, along with Captain Tennison.
If it wasn't enough, the Altair ring station has experienced more deaths, this time on the board of the station, leaving no one alive from the internal-affair investigation team. The series of bizzare deaths lead to a theory that there is a mole on the Altair station which was responsible for all the trouble occured. EAS Hermes is called to help the station to prevent the incoming disaster.
The psychotic telepath known as Eris is also aiding Raiders, making things a little more difficult.
