Old family roles and disagreements threaten to set Ky and Stella against each other in Engaging the Enemy. Stella is focused on Vatta family affairs and rebuilding the company, but Ky believes she must convince others to join a multi-system force to attack the enemy. This comes to a head when a problem from the past reappears and casts doubt on Ky's identity. Meanwhile, back home on Slotter Key, their Aunt Grace is determined to track down and punish those in government who let the Vatta family be sacrified to save their own skins.
