Dar is all grown up and on his own in the Ontarrin Galaxy

With his ship, the Marsuian, incapacitated, Soothian pirates capture Captain Dar Meltom, a half-human/half-Satiren. He’s taken to Versith 5, a highly unstable planet, and forced to work in the thidium mines to appease the nutritional requirements of his captors: a species of large aliens called Versithians. When pirates steal the Plexus, the one precious item that can save planet Versith, Dar finds himself pressed into service to get it back.
He’s thrown together with Princess Parnela Vischof, whose own planet, Kruelis, is controlled by Renthids—ruthless thugs hired by the Versithians to carry out brutal enslavement and pillaging in search of thidium. Parnela knows if the Plexus is not delivered to Versith, her beautiful planet will be destroyed and her people exterminated.
Journeying to the far reaches of the Ontarrin Galaxy, Dar hunts down the pirates and ultimately retrieves the Plexus. He must race back before it’s too late. Along the way, Dar and Parnela discover they have feelings for each other; feelings that Dar realizes may be the death of him. If he can’t convince Parnela to love him, his unique body chemistry will quickly poison his blood leading to a horribly painful death.
After several days of travel, they reach Versith and Dar manages to get the Plexus working. The planet is stabilized; the race of aliens he’s grown to hate is saved. However, Mognath, the Versithian overlord, decides he still wants all the thidium on Kruelis and continues the Renthid siege.
Dar must take matters into his own hands. He approaches two warring species: the Bodnarians and Sirrixians, asking them to put their differences aside to rid Kruelis of the Renthids. After extensive negotiations, both species agree. Dar returns to Versith and steals the Plexus for use in his own clandestine plan. Versith is destroyed. He then joins the armies in their attack on the Renthids. A great war unfolds in which the Bodnarians and Sirrixians destroy the Renthids and free Kruelis.
