The fleet of the Mothership have defeated the Taiidan that destroyed their world Kharak. The battle was led by the young pilot Mark Soban who gave them faith in Sajuuk to guide them to Hiigara. Eric has started documenting the events of the Homeworld War in his book, titled The Homeworld War. John is happy that the first battle has been a victory and hopes for many more.

After the victory in the Great Wastelands against the Taiidan, the Mothership fleet has a new perspective on the journey ahead. They no longer fear their doom. Instead, they now believe Sajuuk will guide them to Khar-Halla. To Hiigara.

This is only the first chapter of the Exile's Return. The Homeworld War has just begun . . .
