Summary

Still reeling from the massacre on Aleph, the survivors are speeding across space, pursued by a Tauran cruiser. Mandella, shaken but not driven insane by the events he witnessed on the planet, is still pondering the machinations of an army that would choose to embed such terrifying conditioning in its soldiers. But his time among the stars is coming to an end. If he can just make it to the Stargate, his tour will be over and he can return to life as a civilian on Earth… at least, that’s what he hopes.

V1 The Forever War

(0)

As they touch down on the planet Aleph, Platoon 1 are about to put everything they’ve learned in training into practice. They are under orders to engage the enemy – the Taurans – whom none of them have ever seen before. Ready for battle, they set out across the alien world. The war is real now. They’re in it. But, like everything, the expectation and the reality are markedly different. The ideology that led them to this situation also led to decisions that none of them could have prepared themselves for – and the lucky ones who survive will never be the same again…

V2 The Forever War

(0)

The Forever War raged for centuries… but Marygay was there to see it all. During the interstellar travel that took her years, generations came and went on Earth. She eventually arrived on Aleph-10 sometime after the end of the war, when humans and the enemy Taurans were at peace. There she learned that what’s left of humanity is a hive mind known as MAN, that inhabits 10 thousand million entities. Making use of the time paradox, Marygay spent the next 286 Earth years in the Time Warp, where she aged just one month every 10 years. This allowed her to arrive, along with other Forever War veterans, on Middle Finger. There she was reunited with her lost love, William, and free to live amongst other heterosexuals and to procreate in the traditional mammalian way. But life on Middle Finger is not as idyllic as Marygay and the others assumed.

But life on Middle Finger was not as idyllic as Marygay and the others assumed and the group resolved to board the Time Warp once more. Their plan – to travel aboard it for ten years while 400 centuries pass on Middle Finger. Their hope – to return to a time without MAN and Taurans. But nothing’s ever that simple.

V4 The Forever War

(0)

Life on Earth is much harder and more confusing than either Marygay or William could have possibly imagined. Humanity has progressed in ways that seem barbaric and strange, and the two veterans must find their place in this new society, and conform to its norms or face the consequences. Faced with such an unpalatable choice, they realise they will never again be at home on the planet they were born on and head, once more, for the stars…

V5 The Forever War

(0)

The interminable waiting continues as Mandella treks across the void to his next assignment. Alone now, with Marygay light years away, forever out of reach, he has only memories of the life he once knew. Among his comrades and subordinates, he finds he is an oddity, as humanity has developed new social constructs beyond his comprehension. Some things, however, remain the same, and Mandella finds himself at the center of an outburst of the basest human emotions.

V6 The Forever War

(0)

Alone in the universe, and still a soldier, Mandella awaits his next interaction with the Taurans, whiling away the days organizing his troops. In his commanding role as Major, one he feels supremely unqualified for, the decisions he makes will result in death and destruction. But with no other place for him in the universe, he has no choice but to perpetuate the violence that has stolen his future, his love, and his life from him, in the vague hope that this Forever War will one day come to an end…
