I'm Rashad Stevens. I wasn't looking for trouble. I was in Cairo to work my way out of poverty and save my mother from the fungus disease that the aliens brought when they trashed Europe. But I and Hany Girgis found a chance to travel the stars in the employ of our space-gecko-scum overlords. So what's wrong with that? Apart from being illegal, probably exploitative and possibly lethal, I mean?
