2267, August 5th: SGM. Marcus Dallas leads the remnant of the AR ground force in Northom on a last ditch effort to break out of their encirclement by SE forces. Their plan is to concentrate a push towards the Space Port and commandeer an SE transport which they will use to regroup with forces outside the city. Aiding the group on this mission is the "Ghost of Northam", a member of SER's Disciple One squadron, one of the most elite spec op units in the AR. Defeat in Northam is certain, the only objective now is survival.
