The network has enslaved all other spacefaring civilizations.  Anyone who dares to question the network-or worse, defy them-will suffer death by torture. 
    
 Only Thomas escaped that fate.  He severed himself from the network in order to rescue his former friends from slavery and death, and now he's a renegade super-genius.  But if he's going to survive in alien wildernesses, hunted by ruthless hordes, he needs help from the super-powerful prisoner whom he was forced to sentence to death.
    
 Thomas and Alex have enough brilliance and power to bring freedom to the galaxy.  They can destroy slave-masters who seem omnipotent ... but first, they need to figure out how to trust each other.

Hey, thanks!
                              
                              Solid summary. I'm glad you chose this scene to help tie the reader back into the story going forward. It definitely helps.
I love this  type of microtension, Alex battling with his own guilt and culpability. The mixed nature of his and Thomas's morality is very textured and makes them feel real
I wonder if the repetition of "all night" with the previous paragraph might be a bit close? Would work fine even if you just dropped that 2nd one and just left the sentence at "questions."
