During a ceremony for Trance Gemini's friend, the Andromeda Ascendant is hit by the effects of a star going supernova. Dylan Hunt begins a hunt for the perpetrators. The supernova wasn't a natural effect, it was caused by a nova bomb.
Dylan manages to locate the planet where the nova bomb came from. Dylan seeks permission from the Commonwealth for the mission to take out the Nova base but he is denied. Dylan suggests going rogue and destroying the base which the Commonwealth leaders indirectly agree that they can go ahead with the mission.
Dylan along with Rebekah Valentine and Tyr Anasazi begin training for the mission, first in a virtual reality computer then using slipfighters. After the practice is over with slipfighters, Tyr decides to stay out further. Tyr has been acting strangely and it is not quite clear why. When he is practising with the slipfighter, something goes wrong and Tyr is forced to abort the slipfighter.
When the mission is about to begin, Tyr decides he doesn't want to be a part of the mission but after a little persuasion, Tyr joins the strike team. Trance Gemini sneaks into Dylans slipfighter but isn't forced to leave the slipfighter. Dylan refers to Trance as his lucky charm. Seamus Harper is left in control of the Ascendant with Rommie.
During the mission, both Tyr and Dylan's slipfighters are knocked out by the defence systems of their target planets forcing them to continue on foot. The three crew members join up and laser target the building that Beka aims to blow up. The crew members return to the Ascendant but its not explained how they get back exactly.
