From the Author
The Capellans were originally a group of scientists tasked by the Corporations with finding ways to increase human productivity and provide physical resiliency to the workforce. This required modification of human DNA and the addition of other RNA to create untold variants of cloned workers capable of surviving in otherwise hostile environments.
When the Clone Wars erupted, Capella was quick to side with the Emperor against the Corporations. During this time the Capellan industrialist, Ruck Nager, proved invaluable in helping to bring the wars to a successful conclusion. In return the Emperor placed Nager in his advisory cabinet and Capellans quickly became the controlling force for all clone production which ensured that no further modifications could be made without their approval.
In a stroke the Capellans became the arbiters of the corporations success or failure and whilst the truce rested uneasy on everyone's shoulders, it rested heaviest on Capella, and in particular, Ruck Nager.
From the Back Cover
The Capella Saga consists of two books centred around the short, but active life of Dirk Nager and Rigelian Gambit is the first, The Rift is the second in this saga, although other books are planned involving the hero, Dirk, they will be separate adventures and standalone reads.
Hopefully, The universe will continue to evolve and the reader will be drawn inexorably into the complex lives that makes up the Clone Worlds.
