THE BAKARIAN REBELLION
Both Dave Jackson and Michael Allen, two of the best fighter pilots in the Confederation, are hiding a secret that is directly affecting the war against the Rebellion.
Both pilots are living a lie, behaving in a way that is contrary to their beliefs and loyalty. Dave acts in an arrogant, rebellious, and insubordinate manner, a means to fulfilling his duty: His secret. Michael acts the loyal citizen, aiming to succeed, gain promotion and a good reputation in Confed, but what is his secret.
Dave is suffering psychological stress far more than his friend for two reasons: He knows his friend’s secret, which is tearing him apart, because he views it as a betrayal of their friendship. His ‘acting’ is preventing him from being who he really needs to be, but what really lies behind his behaviour. Will Dave buckle under the pressure when events take a turn for the worst, or will he fulfil what is expected of him when his loyalty is put to the ultimate test?
