Written by Richard A. Knaak, Simon Furman, Paul Benjamin and Joshua Elder. Drawn by: Naohiro Washi, Jesse Elliot, Dave Shramek and Ramanda Kamarga.

Summary Via Tokyopop:

Ghosts – the Terran's powerful assassins, capable of reading minds and calling nuclear strikes... These ultimate weapons are crafted at a sinister instiution – the Ghost Academy. In this never-before-seen chapter in ghost prodigy Nova's life, the doors of the Ghost Academy are flung wide open! Join Nova as she navigates the challenges of brutal training, both physical and psychological, along with fellow cadets whose unusual powers are being twisted to serve the Dominion. But no matter how terrible their training, the ghost cadets will remember none of the pain...upon their memory-wiping graduation! As a result of a troubled past, Nova has learned she can only depend on herself. Nova's great strength – self-reliance – becomes her greatest weakness when the Ghost Academy implements team-based training. Saddled with a hard-line Dominion supporter, a mouthy President's daughter, an opportunistic playboy and a scatter-brained geek with a habit of making machines go haywire, Nova's challenge lies in learning her greatest strength may lie outside herself.
