Crisis On Doona Author:Anne McCaffrey & Jody Lynn Nye The planet Doona was unique in a galaxy otherwise divided between the Amalgamated Worlds of the humans and the systems which were home to the catlike Hrrubans.

But twenty-five years have now passed since the planet's historic colonization, and the Doona Treaty is about to expire. There are powerful factions among both races who wish to prevent the Treaty's renewal, and many others equally determined to see it maintained.
