to the planet's aide. The Centurion
's captain, Lucius Sejanus is a powerful, magnetic man who favors taking a far stronger stance against the M'Dok than Picard. And s the conflict escalates, Senjanus' instincts seem to be correct .... for it appears only extreme measures can stop the murderous raids on Tenara.

's officers has made that decision for them - and plans to provoke a full scale war between the Federation and the M'Dok empire!

"Then Tenara will ours for the taking."
