In the future, entire planets have been transformed into production facilities where generations of employees are born, work, and die, under a single Corporate banner. Angered by decades of Corporate indifference to their needs, religious fanatics, the Hands of God, seize hundreds of these factory worlds for their own. Imperiled by this catastrophic loss, the deep space Corporations band together to form MilCorps, a military arm whose sole purpose is to retake these lost facilities. But, after seven years of war, things are not going well for MilCorps. When Sergeant Dalmon Bri and his special operations team are tasked with a questionable mission on a backwater world, he can only wonder if the Hands of God are the real enemy.
