”I am fully functional and self-aware. My name is Selvans.”
In a family-dominated spacefaring future, Queenships are the definition of power. All military, economic, and political maneuvers occur with these pinnacles of technology. Secrecy is the currency of the realm.

In a distant system, one family is determined to re-discover the trick that awakened the original Queenship, while in another, a newly born Queenship selects a pilot with ties to two opposing families. They’ll do anything to keep their secrets from each other, and win the ship to their side.
But the only way for three to keep a secret, is if two of them are dead.
