Plot summary[edit]

In framing text, Magestrix Emma Centrella sits alone on Christmas Eve 3061 and mourns her daughter, Danai Centrella and her friend Protector Jeffrey Calderon - both of whom had recently died. Trying to drown her sorrows in wine, she sleeps and dreams of the events of a year prior, when President Sherman Maltin took her and Jeffrey hostage with the help of the Colonial Marshals.

In her dream, however, she had not sent her guards offworld as a demonstration of peaceful intent, and the Green Mountain Boys and Ebon Magistrate rallied to her defense against the renegade lawmen.
