From back cover: Armed for justice, trained to kill- they are the best of the best. Star Commandos. A military elite, forged in a galactic conflict. War's end marks the beginning of their mission: to protect human colonies from the blood-drenched clutches of post-war scavengers.
It's called the planetbuster. A weapon of unmatched destruction that can obliterate entire worlds at the posh of a button. This artifact of war is hidden beneath the surface of the planet Hades, waiting for anyone desperate enough to claim it.
Only the Star Commandos stand in the way. Commando-Colonel Islaen Connor leads the descent into Hades' deadly underground caverns in a desperate race to capture the most coveted weapon in the galaxy. They must win, because in the hands of spacer scum this weapon spells the end of the Federation's hard-won peace.
