Me: Taiga Chavez, ex-Soldier, Captain of my own ship now (yes!)
Once I was a State Soldier. The State is, of course, the ruling body for the Sol System. They became a consolidated group sometime after the Great Plague on Earth. As a single organization, they brought humanity from the brink of self-annihilation to the most advanced and unified civilization in Earth’s history. As a State Soldier, I’d had a place in the large scheme of things, albeit a lowly and abhorred yet necessary place. I’d worked my entire life and gambled with that very life to achieve my rank within The State. I was a highly trained, technically-enhanced member of an unwanted demographic. But that’s an old story. Now I’m a ship’s captain and an explorer on a grand adventure across deep space. Oh, and I’m also a fugitive from The State with a price on my head. A big price. A price that brings any and every rat out of the woodwork for a piece of me. But lately, I haven’t thought about that last description. And here’s why: my shiny new ship is a mere week’s distance away from the most amazing destination imaginable. The end-point of this journey should put me face to face (if it even has a face) with the oldest and most advanced civilization in the Universe. It should be an incredible story.
