In the mid 1990’s with America pulling out of the space race, the Soviets start construction on Skybase 5 “The Hammer of Peace”. This massive station is a nuclear weapons platform with hundreds of missiles. Sergei Plehve is a captain stationed on Skybase 5. A loyal Communist but also a member of the Samothracians.
The story has taken a dramatic turn. Civil war is all but inevitable in the U.S. The Israelis are now in a war with the Soviet Union which means a world war. The introduction of Skybase 5 and its Samothracian agent hints that this base will play a major role in the conclusion to this storyline in the next issue. It sets up a lot that makes the reader want to find out how it ends. A great issue in this series.
