    After the disastrous attack on the Manticoran home system by forces unknown, the Royal Manticoran Navy stands on the brink of collapse. A shadowy enemy with the resources to hurl warships across hundreds of light years seeks to conquer the Star Kingdom for reasons unknown, while forces from within Manticore's own government seek to discredit and weaken the Navy for reasons very much known: their own political gain.

    Lieutenant Travis Long of the Royal Manticoran Navy is the sort of person who likes an orderly universe. One where people follow the rules. Unfortunately he lives in the real universe. The good news is that Travis is one of those rare people who may like rules but has a talent for thinking outside them when everything starts coming apart. That talent has stood him - and the Star Kingdom - in good stead in the past, and it's one reason he's now a "mustang" - an ex-enlisted man who's been given a commission.

    In Becoming Hitler, award-winning historian Thomas Weber examines Adolf Hitler's time in Munich between 1918 and 1926, the years when Hitler shed his awkward, feckless persona and transformed himself into a savvy opportunistic political operator who saw himself as Germany's messiah. The story of Hitler's transformation is one of a fateful match between man and city. After opportunistically fluctuating between the ideas of the left and the right, Hitler emerged as an astonishingly flexible leader of Munich's right-wing movement.

    Mit Helmholtz beginnt das Zeitalter des Sounds. Was heute Geräusch ist, kann morgen Musik sein. In seinem 1863 erschienenen Lehrbuch "Die Lehre von den Tonempfindungen als physiologische Grundlage für die Theorie der Musik" verfasst der Physiologe Hermann von Helmholtz eine Musiktheorie, die erstmals physikalische Messungen, Phänomene akustischer Wahrnehmung und kulturelle Prägungen einbezieht. Schwingungen, Schwebungen. Kombinationstöne, Klangfarben. Konsonanz, Dissonanz. Was wir hörend empfinden, beruht auf Illusionen, die uns feine, in Schwingung versetzte Härchen hinter einer ovalen Fensteröffnung vorspielen. Für seine Forschungen zur Vokalbildung der menschlichen Stimme baut Helmholtz einen Stimmgabelsynthesizer. Diese metallischen Oszillationen dienen der Karlsruher Musikformation Kammerflimmer Kollektief als Grundlage für synthetische Mixturen freier Improvisationen und mehr.

    Im Sternenkönigreich Manticore herrscht weiterhin Streit darüber, in welche Flotte man am besten investiert. Während eine Partei an der Royal Manticoran Navy festhält, glaubt die andere, dass der Patrol and Rescue Service für die Verteidigung der kleinen Nation absolut ausreicht. Diese Grabenkämpfe kommen der Terranische Axelrod Corporation sehr gelegen, die im Sternsystem von Manticore einen Wurmlochknoten vermutet. Und sie sind bereit, diesen auch mit Gewalt unter ihre Kontrolle zu bringen.
