Treachery is afoot on the Genesis, a cargo ship travelling at the very edge of Human space. When Silvia Tanner opens herself up for "a bit of honest corruption" with the Sontarans, she soon finds she has bitten off more than she can chew.

What is the Sontaran plan and why do they need the ship? Who is Alex and who is he working for? With time running short, Silvia needs to unravel the mysteries fast, and then tell her enemies from her friends.

"Silent Warrior draws on Alien as one of its main sources for inspiration. Featuring the more naive (than Ripley) Sylvia Tanner who strikes a deal with Field Major Sontaran Starn. Then the unexpected arrival of an investigator called Alex opens up a new can of worms. What raises this story is the fact that Starn is not your average Sontaran and this is of course reflected in John Wadmore`s performance. Add to this the talents of Michael Wade as Alex, who manages to strike a chord by being different to Lockwood. Combined with Mike Neilson`s wondeful incidental music and you have something close to perfection." (Stuart Gutteridge)
