EARTH'S ONLY HOPE WAS THE COBRAS
The colony worlds of Adirondack and Silvern fell to the Troft forces almost without a struggle. Outnumbered and on the defensive, Earth made a desperate decision – it would attack the aliens not from space, but on the ground - with forces the Trofts could never suspect...
And so the Cobras were created – a guerilla force whose weapons were surgically implanted, invisible to the naked eye yet undeniably deadly.
But power brings temptation – not all the Cobras could be trusted to fight for Earth alone...
