Burne Garrett, accused of hijacking the spaceship Streambreaker, is on the run with Lanie, commander of the Lightrunner, and Garrett's telepathic, chimp-like alien companion Tak. After Garrett meets with his father, Commander Thorvus Garrett of the Empyrean Alliance, to protest his innocence, turncoat envoy Breton Kan orders the Lightrunner fired upon. The ship and its crew escape but are captured on the academic planet Atridge, where they had sought the help of Professor Si-Laan-Kí. Meanwhile, masterminds Eigo and Empyrforce Commander T'sed continue their plans to take over the empire.

Synopsis
"rare and obscure Flaming Carrot" art of evidently unused, little seen or newly drawn covers and other art, two pieces of which are dated 1979. Accompanying text, which may be either literal or fanciful, claims, "After days of digging, searching and corresponding, we have compiled a cautiously selected array of elite Flaming Carrot material, from the far-flung tattered and disorganized body of surviving Carrot originals. ... Most of the stories these are from were actually published in the 1970s in trial or promotional editions with press runs of 20, 50 or 200 if they were printed at all."
