General Bestok is a hero of the Sontaran Empire. His battles have been fought according to certainties programmed into his very being. However questions are coalescing at the back of his mind. Why is he being given illogical orders? What has really brought Field Marshall Drell all the way from their home planet to the front line and what is the meaning behind his cryptic remarks?
Maria has spent most of her life in the murky, shifting world of colonial politics. She likes to think she is a survivor. Now her world is being crushed by a brutal Sontaran assault and her skills are being pushed to the limit as she tries to escape with her erstwhile President in tow.
Neither Bestok or Maria realise it but their futures are about to become entwined. Before too long, they must become players, or be played. If they can learn the truth, they will be able to alter the destiny of an entire race.

A Brief History of these audios:
BBV was the first production company to do "Doctor Who" Audio dramas (prior to Big Finish) but they were not licensed by the BBC. People like Mark Gatiss, Nick Briggs, Nigel Fairs, and others were the writers and Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred, Lisa Bowerman, Lalla Ward, John Leeson, and Nick Briggs, among others, were the actors.
They were produced in very limited quantities and most did not get the proper shrink wrap you would come to expect from a new CD. However, it is the story that matters and for unofficial stuff it was quite good (no one else cared about Doctor Who at that time except the true fans who put these together).
