Drake is a star fighter pilot escorting an execution craft transporting the witch Aguira, destroyer of worlds and civilizations. She has been condemned by the Judges of Mardar to death and is to be dumped into a black hole. On route an asteroid containing Xyanide, a substance that materializes thoughts, hits the execution craft.
