Hilfy had been crew on THE PRIDE OF CHANUR when her Aunt Pyanfar, captain of the THE PRIDE, gave shelter and protection to the human Tully, shattering the equilibrium of Meetpoint Station and disrupting the complex power balances which existed between the seven races of the Compact. Tully was the sole surviving member of an expedition sent by his own race, a race previously unknown in Compact space, and his presence added a dangerous and potentially deadly element to the intricate interspecies rivalries of Meetpoint. For the information this fugitive held--the potential of a trade contract with a new species--could be the ruin or glory of any of the worlds in Compact space. Pyanfar's actions pitched her crew into the center of a galactic maelstrom which imperiled the peace of the Compact itself. But in the end she won a treasure beyond measuring--the trade contract with Earth.
