She and the rest of the female crew from the human starship Dakota were to be married off, as the Alliance was suffering from a demographics issue, there weren’t enough Alliance women. Dru didn’t care what kind of problems the Alliance had, she didn’t come this far, in her short life, to end up as a grey, alien man’s slave, no matter how powerful his civilization was. But that was the problem, humans were next to nothing, and the Alliance Empire ruled the galaxy. But Dru has an advantage to aid her escape, she is telepathic.
