Synopsis
Rom returns to Galador after 200 years only to find that his people worship him as their ruler. He discovers that someone has taken his appearance and identity and convinced his people that the Wraith War is over. Rom is captured as an imposter and the villainous Mentus reveals that the Spaceknight, Terminator, was given the other half of Rom's humanity in exchange for his help in keeping the people of Galador subservient. Rom escapes and frees other captured Spaceknights and they put an end to the impostor's rule. Unfortunately, Mentus has sent the whole planet rocketing toward Wraith World.
