Captain Rick Galloway, formerly of the US Army, was now Lord Rick on the planet Tran. Rescued by an alien spaceship from certain death when a mercenary assignment went sour, he and his men were dropped on a world distant from Earth, but inhabited by humans--transplanted in the past from now-vanished nations. Soon Rick finds himself fighting to conquer the world before total extinction occurs.
