Combat Zone: Chapter One
'Why.....why do I have to be the one stuck on this Irk forsaken planet?'
Kel rubbed the back of her head as she walked through the Irken camp, glaring at the new trainees as they disembarked from the Irken transport ship. She was the top fighter pilot, top close combat expert, and one of the top marksmen in her class. So why the hell was she given the task of getting noob flyers ready for combat?!
