Synopsis: The Starmind is the most advanced artificial sun ever created, a nuclear furnace possessing limitless energy and a brilliant artificial intelligence. The Starmind is powerful, adaptive, intent—and it has gone mad! Aboard a Viyran command ship, the Doctor, Riddell, and Flo learn the incredible history of this marvel of stellar engineering as they desperately attempt to outrun it. Its intentions are ominous and its target is clear, for the rogue sun is on a direct course for the Shadow Proclamation—stronghold of justice, hallowed font of galactic law, and the foremost repository of strategic information regarding countless civilizations.

Upon reaching the Shadow Proclamation’s base of operations in the heart of an asteroid field, the Doctor witnesses a most innovative invasion. A new star takes its place in the heavens and begins its slow takeover of the base’s photonic computer systems using nothing more than the pervasive, relentless power of sunlight. Soon, the unparalleled defences of the galaxy’s greatest law enforcement agency are turned against them, and the resulting chaos leads the Doctor and his companions to uncover inconvenient truths. There is a dark side to the justice of the Shadow Architects, and the Doctor will have to expose their secrets if he hopes to use the dark to overcome the light.

The legendary space amoeba known as Magla has awakened—and it must feed!
