A first novel.
One of the few survivors of a League sneak attack on his poor and miserable homeworld of Carescria, Wilf Brim sets out to settle the score. Were it not for the attrition from the war that followed, Wilf would never have escaped his lower-class status and been accepted into the Academy. Now, freshly graduated, young Sublieutenant Wilf Ansor Brim, Imperial Fleet, begins his first assignment, Helmsman of the I.F.S. Truculent.
Author Bill Baldwin returns to the Helmsman saga with this "Director’s Cut" Special Edition of the book that started it all. Galactic Convoy, The Trophy, The Mercenaries, The Defenders, and The Siege will follow, leading up the the release of the long awaited The Turning Tide.
