Wandering out there in some remote region of the galaxy is a gargantuan, sentient Tar-Aiym weapons system. All Flinx has to do - while his pals look after his injured love, Clarity Held - is find the hefty object and persuade it to knock out the monstrous evil that is hurtling through the space to lay waste to the entire Commonwealth. A no brainier, really... just as soon as Flinx and his mini drag, Pip, visit Visaria - a dangerously depraved planet to make sure that humans are indeed worth saving. But prospects really go south when Flinx runs afoul of a ruthless crime king. What's more, a new mystery is waiting to be uncovered: a shocking clue about Flinx's shadowy past.
