Western civilization begins turning into something resembling Plato's Republic or the Tau Empire, coming under the sway of the philosopher-kings known as patricians. Some people support this development more than others, and fighting ensues. Imperial Dawn follows the lives of four people during the course of the war: a spy, a loyalist, a rebel, and an arms manufacturer. Both sides of the war are presented in equal detail, leaving the reader to pick which is best.
