The Excalibur Alternative
The races which ruled the Galactic Federation knew they were vastly superior to the
inferior species restricted to the narrow confines of their own star systems by the
crudity of their technology . . . and they had every intention of keeping things
Yet all good things come to an end, and the Galactics made one mistake. It didn't
seem all that terrible at first, only a single merchant guild which bought itself
a Roman legion to use as enslaved sepoys on the primitive worlds where they weren't
permitted to use their own weapons to force trading concessions. But the Romans were
too good at what they did, and a desperate competing guild decided that the only
way it could continue to compete was if it had Romans of its own.
Unfortunately, Roman legions were no longer available, so the competing guild had
to settle for something else: English longbowmen on their way to the Battle of Crecy.
Roman legions make dangerous pets . . . but English longbowmen are even worse.
It may take a century or so, but the Galactics are about to discover what happens
when the sword finally comes out of the stone.
