I. THE UNSUNG by Scott Bartlett
Joe is nearing the end of a long deployment and looks forward to home leave so he can visit his daughter. Protecting digital people pays the bills, but Joe is one of the few who prefers to spend time with those made of flesh and blood. His last assignment takes him to Earth, humanity’s deserted homeworld, to learn why all contact has been lost with Sol’s Subverse – the digital utopia where most of humanity now live. First, he finds a pirate impersonating the corporal responsible for guarding the Subverse terminal. Then he visits Earth’s last settlement to find everyone dead...except the children, who have all been taken.
II. INVASION by PP Corcoran
Humanity, previously dependent on the K'Tai for its Redlazore, discover vast resources of the most valuable mineral in the galaxy on Agate; the human colony-world which lies perilously close to the K'Tai Imperium. The K’Tai invade opposed by a meagre, poorly-armed militia, a sprinkling of regular marines and the Carters… a seemingly ordinary family with secrets that may just save their world.
III. ARK ROYAL by Christopher G. Nuttall
Seventy years ago, the interstellar supercarrier Ark Royal was the pride of the Royal Navy. Now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armor is little more than a burden as she floats in permanent orbit near Earth. But when a deadly alien threat appears, their modern starships are no match for the powerful alien weapons. Ark Royal and her mismatched crew must go on the offensive. And yet, with a drunkard for a captain, an over-ambitious first officer and a crew composed of reservists and the dregs of the service, do they have even the faintest hope of surviving? Or of returning to an Earth which may no longer?
IV. THE VOID WAR by D.J. Holmes
It's the year 2465, 200 years since the stars were opened by the invention of the shift drive. So began the First Interstellar Expansion Era, catapulting humanity into a deadly race for the limited resources of navigable space. Now tensions between the human nations are threatening to boil over into open hostility. Into this maelstrom steps the exiled commander James Somerville of the Royal Space Navy. Banished from London to the survey ship HMS Drake he is about to make a discovery that may change his fortunes and throw Britain into a deadly war with its closest rival.

When his platoon is assigned to take back the colony on Demeter from the Tahni, the mission falls apart, most of his comrades are killed and Munroe is wounded, separated from his unit and left for dead on an enemy occupied world. With no other choice, he organizes the civilian colonists into a resistance movement and begins fighting against the occupation with limited supplies and no support. As the situation becomes more and more desperate, what began as a high-tech, interstellar conflict will become a war to the knife…
