Star Sails: Tin Machines
Tin Machines is #5 in the Star Sails' series.
Limping on their way home, the crew of the SS Falcon are in desperate need of supplies. The most important is gluonite so that they can get their hyper drive working.
Without faster than light engines running, it'll take them close to 30 million years to get back home. That's a little longer than the estimated life of the good ship Falcon.
