On a distant planet, archeologist Hannibal Carson finds the remains of a high-tech artifact in a primitive tomb. A ruthless cult believes it's the clue to a lost cache of alien weapons. Homeworld Defense enlists Carson and starship pilot Jacqueline "Jackie" Roberts to decipher the clue and find the cache before the cult does. With a thriving black market in alien artifacts, Carson is used to dealing with tomb raiders -- but the stakes this time are xenocide and interstellar war.
