About the Book:
After the Big War had left the Terran Federation in
tatters, ten thousand military refugees from the losing side, the System
States Alliance, fled thousands of light-years beyond the boundaries of
the Federation to escape pursuit and establish a new life. There they
discovered a small star cluster and colonized an earth-like planet the
named Excalibur. By the time of Space Viking the former refugees had
colonized a dozen worlds, which the called the Sword-Worlds, the planets
having been named after legendary swords from ancient Terran tales. In
their isolation, the Sword-Worlds developed a system of planetary
feudalism while still managing to retain much of the former Federation's
technology, including space travel and contragravity.
