Abstract:

The zor is just one of the races that man encounters, and from the first meeting, it's been war. For many years the conflicts have been sporadic, usually ending with an Earth concession and a treaty ... but zor culture does not respect peaceful concessions and never had any intention of honoring them. When the zor decide to mount a surprise attack on Earth colonies outside of their sphere of influence, the normally self-occupied governing body of Earth realizes that something must be done. Controversial scholar, Marais, is brought in. He believes himself to be the mythic Dark Wing that will exterminate the zor, and he will not accept a return to the status quo.
