Excerpt
Excerpt: Star guard introduction: the mercenaries when the dominant species of a minor nine planet system revolving about a yellow sun known as ?sol??situated close to the fringe of the galaxy?gained knowledge of space flight and came out into our lanes of travel there arose a problem which central control had to solve, and speedily. These ?men,? as they called themselves, combined curiosity, daring, and technical skill with a basic will-to-compete against other races and species, an in-born thrust to conflict. Their answer to any problem was aggressive. Had this ?will-to-battle? not been recognized at once for what it was and channeled into proper outlet, infinitesimal as their numbers were among us, we have been told that their influence might have torn asunder the peace of the stellar lanes and plunged whole sectors into war.
