The short story narrates an engagement between Adam Steiner's 1st Somerset Strikers and Clan Jade Falcon forces lead by Nicolai Malthus on an unmentioned world in the Tamar March of the Federated Commonwealth.
Although MechWarrior Online as such does not fall under the current criteria for Canon, the fiction going with the games' "Hero 'Mechs"—written largely by Randall Bills who at the time was also the incumbent BattleTech Line Developer at Catalyst Game Labs—was expressly declared fully canonical. At the same time, the Hero 'Mechs themselves and the configurations offered by MechWarrior Online were still not considered canon beyond what was expressly put down in the fiction pieces.
