Captain Jason Ayers and his crew return in three new Frigate Victory science fiction short stories and two new novellas.
Ayers' crew has to deal with new problems, including settling a dispute between two alien races. Both races claim seven planets lying on the border, with one planet settled by both. What's in the best interests of both races? What's in the best interests of those living on the "Seven Under Dispute?"
Other stories in the collection tell of the search for con artists, a crash investigation, and what the ruins of an ancient machine can tell about a long-dead civilization.
