With a religious fervor Komada inspires more Chosen warriors to take up arms against their former citizens. Pushed by his superiors, Sheridan must get these soldiers ready to undertake hazardous missions in Kurgan space. Deeply suspicious of Komada's motives, Sheridan and Cole are not sure if he and his disciples can be trusted. With Earth about to take the offensive, the members of the Ghost Company are about to find out if they are able to take the war to their home worlds.
