For years the living toys of Rigel-3 live in the peace that their president for life, Don Quixote, fought so hard to achieve. Their former masters, the Factories, watch on in silence as President Quixote leads his people through many of the growing pains of a new society. Yet two new explosive issues threaten to tear apart their nascent people – race and procreation.
In the middle of this internal maelstrom, on the anniversary of their tenth year of peace, the exiled and mentally unbalanced Isp returns at the head of a massive new Army of the Humans. He openly announces his intent to replace President Quixote’s democracy with a theocracy, either peacefully or by force.
With most of his military people modified to peacetime purposes, Don Quixote must make a horrific decision for the very soul of his people.
