Based upon the strategy war game and set during events in the Blood of Kerensky Trilogy by Michael Stackpole, a small independent unit lead by Maj. Adam Steiner fights their way to their home planet of Somerset when news of an army of mysterious invaders calling themselves the Clans begin to conquer world after world in their ultimate goal to take Terra. The First Somerset Strikers, as the unit is called, is assigned to take the fight to the Clans and learn as much of the invaders as they can, all the while being pursued by an obsessive Clan Jade Falcon warrior named Nicholai Malthus.
Did You Know?
The Mauler, frequently seen in the series, is used erroneously. The original source states that the Mauler was an experimental Battlemech built in the Draconis Combine, and seen far too frequently in the possession of the Combine's long time rivals in the Federated Suns. This is presumably due to budget limitations. The series uses only a few designs throughout the entire series. (Mauler, Wolfhound, Centurion, Awesome and Bushwacker for the Inner Sphere, and the Timber Wolf (Mad Cat), Mad Dog (Vulture), Hunchback IIC and Summoner (Thor) for the Clans). See Below See more
